Re: Donna Vekic
Have to disagree with this - they surely know who she is, as she is one of the best newcomers on the Tour and almost a top 100 player. They do follow the Tour regularly, I'm sure.
I still don't think they'd put her on a show court if she was against a random non seeded player, unless she was against an Aussie
Even some seeded players don't get their first rounds on a show court.
