Donna Vekic
 
I know it's very early for a thread, but time will tell. Judging by this article:

http://www.glas-slavonije.hr/vijest....VIJESTI=119156

she could be really something. 13 y.o. and already in an IMG London Academy, made it to slam junior qualies in just a few months on the circuit etc. Hope she's a future star.

really nice to hear that there are some good prospects in Cro.
I'm especially pleased to hear for that boy Coric, because just few days ago I was thinking how we suck and that after Cilic there will be no one solid on atp from croatia. How old is he?
As to the girls, it seems thst Ajla, Petra (and Silvija) will be good and competitve on top 50 level in future.
Few years ago i read something really positive about some girl Vorih, who lives in Germany? Anyod knows what s happening with her?

he is so young. born in 1996, like vekic. also there is filip veger, he is born on the very end of 1994, also big potential. alos there is delic (born 1993). he playedjust few junniors tournaments but he took one set against kublen (than 4. in the world, today 3.). kubler is 1993 too.
vorih? maybe this girl:

She's doing pretty good lately. HEr coach is David Fulgate - former coach of e.g. Henman and Vaidisova.

Donna is on the qualifying entry list for next week's $10K in Osijek. Best of luck to her. It'll be interesting to see how she does.

Donna got into the MD as a WC. In R1 she plays a 16-yo unranked qualifier, Elizabeta BAUER.

Good luck to Donna on her first(!) pro match.

Got a wild-card for doubles too. She's teamed up with some girl from Slovakia who's also 14 y.o. and they play against some "big girls", who are both 17:eek: :lol: Neither of these four currently has a doubles ranking. Will be interesting to follow this tournament.

Elizabeta BAUER (SRB) defeated Donna VEKIC (CRO) 6-2 6-2

Donna is definitely not ready for prime time. Granted, she's still extremely young.

Donna has a MDWC for next week's Zagreb $25K. I can't help but think that a QWC would have been better...
