Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Given her improvement in form she really has no excuse not to qualify

Lykina is ranked 209.
Lim is 180.
Winner then plays Jaksic (182) or Podoroska (232)

That's a really good draw for GS qualies. T'would be a shame if Donna can't take advantage of it

Good luck, Donna!

Donna since she started working with Horvat - 4:3, up until that point this year - 11:21.

Yes, it's early to tell, but the change seems to do good so far.

Anyway, nice win for Donna as she hasn't bagelled anyone in almost 6 months

And that dress looks real nice on her

Next up it's Lim, to whom Donna lost in their only match played so far, but that was on clay so I expect something better this time around. Lim's form in the last half a year hasn't been much better than Donna's.

Dodin can be tricky to handle, but overall I'd say this looks doable.


Good luck Donna

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Great preparation for NY well, decent prep at least [emoji38]

Is she in qualies or did she scrape by in Main Draw?

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

I thought she played pretty well. That game where she failed to break 0-40 (all second serves) was critical...

^^ This pretty much sums it up. Donna still lacks consistency to take out players of this caliber, but this is still a good run.

Start looked really nice, especially when she broke back in the third game, it looked like it could be a competitive match. But Konta's relentless pace (during the on-court coaching Donna said to her coach: "she plays so quickly") and some missed chances in close games made sure the score doesn't get complicated.

Donna's 1st serve also added to the problems as one of the major culprits for such a straightforward win. You can't beat even much weaker players than Konta with such poor serving stats.

But overall this could be the turning point in her 2016 and even her career. She needs to keep things together now, not let herself get carried away after one good result and keep up the work, cause her next event is USO q-draw.

It'd be nice to see her qualify there

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

At least she can say she beat a former grand slam winner and former #1.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Fun fact (or not so much) - Donna has made it to the 3rd round of Premier 5 or Premier Mandatory event only once before, in 2014 Miami, when she beat Kudryavtseva and Larsson to qualify and then followed it up with wins over Date-Krumm and Kuznetsova (all four in straights), before losing to Kvitova 3 & 4.

P. S. Looks like play will start in Cincy any minute now, after almost 2 hours of rain delay.
