Re: Donna Vekic

This is a rock-solid opposition in R1 and Donna will have to be at 100% if she is to win it. Sure, the draw could've been much worse, but don't be surprised if this turns into a nailbiter.

Hlavackova is not very consistent, that's true, but it's also true that she usually plays very well in Mandatories. Case in point last year in Melbourne she qualified and took a set off Petrova. Also, in Madrid she reached R2 from qualies then lost to Vika, in Wimbledon she lost to Clijsters in R2, while as mentioned earlier, she made R4 in NY by beating Zakopalova, Voskoboeva and Kirilenko, before going out to Serena. Experience is on her side of course, she is no stranger to wins against top 50 opponents, and not to mention that she can utilize her doubles skills and hurt Donna seriously with some of them. She is known to play agressive tennis and therefore is prone to errrors, but when she is on, she is really dangerous. Donna will have to be very tough on the mental side as well, cause she'll be playing a doubles grand slam champion and Olympic medalist.

Too bad we (most probably) won't get to see it.
