I hope I don't ruffle too many feathers by saying this, but to me Ana feels much more like the real thing than Donna. When Ana plays, I always feel like she's going to win, but I don't feel the same way with Donna. It's probably because Donna didn't accomplish very much in juniors and has played some very weak pro tournaments to get her ranking up.

I totally agree. It's not that Donna is not good. It's just that Ana is SCARY good. I hope I don't jinx her now .

Re: Ana Konjuh

Lots of people are getting to see Ana for the first time.

@ovafanboy (Sept. 1)
First look at Konjuh. Not as tall as Keys or Tomljanovic, but a good build, strong core.


@RomiCvitkovic (Sept. 3)
No.2 junior girls seed Ana #Konjuh pretty solid off both wings; hits the ball fairly heavy but likes slicing FH too.

~Keys ~Pliskova ~Kvitova ~Bencic ~Ivanovic ~Bouchard ~Putintseva ~Wozniacki ~Kovinic ~Goerges ~Watson ~Chirico ~Konjuh ~Witthoeft

I don't think anyone will mind this quote cause they are really very different. Their mindsets for starters, are very different - both are fighters, but to a different degree. It probably has to do with their respective playing styles. But I also think there is one major difference in talent, as I see Donna as someone who could turn into a very solid professional, while I see Ana as someone with a chance to become a phenomenal one. Honestly, if she continues like this and keeps her health in check I wouldn't be least surprised to someday see her win a grand slam.

But anyway, tough luck in doubles, it was expected that very little will decide the winning team. The only positive that can come out of it is more energy left for singles now. Really looking forward to the match, but not sure what to expect. Hope Hibi doesn't turn out to be a nasty surprise, cause she does have some very decent wins this year (Broady, Duval etc.). Of course nothing in the ranks of Ula Radwanska, but still worth paying attention to.

Good luck Ana!

Re: Ana Konjuh

I think it is too much saying Ana is better than Donna. They are playing completely different levels at the moment, such a big difference in seniors and juniors. Ana has good strength in her body, so she can bully most of the juniors easily, but whether it can transition to seniors is yet to be seen.

Reason for Donna's early success in seniors is she can absorb and redirect pace really well. I think Ana is a different kind of player.

For predictions, I would say Ana will not have the success Donna has had now, but in the future when she develops her game more like around 18.

Re: Ana Konjuh

Ana is playing pro in Europe, that's big difference between pathetic middle Asia tours.

Re: Ana Konjuh

I think that if Ana played exactly the same schedule as Donna she would have achieved more. I think that Donna really tried to adapt by playing mroe and more difficult tournaments but I still think that she is too dependent on the weak tournaments meaning she is not really progressing to the level she could. She is 17 though

Ana though is playing really well and I think the experience she is gaining by working harder for her points puts her in great stead further on and therefore I think she is and will be better. Maybe not on Grass or Hard, but definitely on Clay. I think she would have won easily vs Donna if Donna played Contrexeville

Re: Ana Konjuh

Such a shame for doubles, Ana and Antonia had match point in third set (9-8)

Hibi is very talented young player and Ana must play on high level to make it to the finals. She is ranked 259. on WTA, has 25K and 50K titles this year, her main weapon is big forehand, it is really powerful. Her serve looks really slow and Ana has to be focused on return. Also, she uses single handed backhand, many slices and she likes coming to the net. She defeated few high ranked players so far: Lauren Davis, Madison Brengle, Renata Voracova.

GL to Ana, her coach said that she played some really good tennis against Chirico, let's hope that she will repeat it today

Re: Ana Konjuh

I think Ana can win but whether she does is another question

I watched that video, but Brengle was pissed because of couple really bad calls from judge. Again, Ana has to be on very high level today, let's hope she will do it.
