Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Ranking will be the least of Donna's worries if she allows herself these sorts of performances a bit more often.

Her opponent from today has a pretty good serve, but in all other aspects, Donna should be able to handle her. That was evident countless times even today, when Donna only needed to put 3-4 solid shots into the court left-right to force NV into an error. But she forgot to cut down on her own errors by a few notches today.

Anyhow, hopefully she can show something better than this in Tashkent.

Vikhlyantseva has had a middling sort of year but in last two months she's suddenly picking up tournaments. She absolutely tore through the draw this week and jumps 50 ranking spots. I would have expected Donna to offer more resistance though.

Donna needs to keep winning or Vikhlyantseva might overtake her in short order. She could drop about 30 places if she doesn't win a few in Tashkent.

Vikhlyantseva is a very good player when on. It's just refreshing that for once Donna actually beat the players in front of her. Yes this draw was ridiculously easy, but Donna always seems to get good draws and fuck them up. She took a WC into Tashkent but her draw is not so good there, first Kozlova then Larsson. What will be her ranking next week with a R1/2 loss?

Got schooled by a challenger-level player.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Quite ironic she's playing in the same city as her man is. At least they won't be far away from each other .

Meh, match could go either way.

Indeed, Sabalenka's ranking is deceiving IMO and if she can play like in the last two sets today on a more regular basis, I can definately see her reach top 70 at least. The question is, where is her "normal", cause this is the first time I saw her. She really made Donna work for the win, and there was much more to it in the third set than the score would suggest.

Donna herself didn't play very good today as well, so winning such a match must feel good, especially ahead of the final.

She is a big favorite tomorrow I'd say and should really make the most of this chance.

It's nice to see her take advantage of a weak draw for a change! It's been a while.

Final will definitely be her toughest test. Her opponent is a good player from what I've seen from her this year.

thank you for linking this now I can watch a replay

Also great win over Dolonc who is a solid indoor hard court player.

Sabalebka and Rodina are about to go to a 3rd set.

Could be winnable if Donna is on her game.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Her service games are shaky, she gives points away and doesn't always think clearly during points, but overall this was a good display of tennis from Donna today.

I especially like the fact that she doesn't seem hesitant to come into the court anymore. It's obvious they've been working on this, as well as on her net game, so her volleys now actually look more like volleys and less like trying not to get hit into the head with the ball, which was the case 2 or 3 years ago. She also showed some nice drop shotting skills today.

Overall, I'm pleased with her performance today. Tomorrow will probably bring a tougher opponent, so hopefully she stays focused and motivated.
