Re: Donna Vekic

Well first of all I just have to say it's terrible for what happened to Andrea. She has had an unbelievable amount of bad luck these past twelve months with all her injuries. She seems like a really nice girl and seemed friendly with Donna too.

That being said, hopefully Donna will get to take her place. I see no way that they cannot let Donna play now, she would rightfully be absolutely furious if she was snubbed.

I'm going to Germany vs. Italy/Serbia so I'll hopefully get to see Donna in both of those matches!

Re: Donna Vekic

By the way I saw Donna practice today She seemed really frustrated with her game, she was spraying her forehand a lot and muttering to herself. I'll post videos and more info later

Re: Donna Vekic

Here are the videos. There are more coming later.



I didn't have tickets to the main match on the arena but anyone can go to the practice court for free. I literally live a 10 minute drive from the place so it's easy for me to get to. I thought I may as well show up seeing as I didn't have anything on today, so I was there for a couple of hours (also saw Ivanovic). It's kind of weird because it's just in the middle of the city, it's so noisy and there are main roads right around it It was really hot. It was 40 degrees today Even sitting in the stands I was so dehydrated There weren't that many people there watching her play, maybe only 6-7. Someone asked me who she was and I told them, someone else said her name was "Daniela Vekic"

I wouldn't say it was exactly a good practice session for Donna, she was spraying her forehand a lot and seemed quite distressed. Her backhand was great though, she hit some great crosscourt backhands. It's definitely her favourite shot.

I wish I could've had a photo taken with her or something, or an autograph, but I only went there very last minute and was by myself Maybe later in the week, I'm sure I'll see her again

Re: Donna Vekic

Sorry to spam with yet another post But here is another video. It was taken by SilverSlam who was in the arena today, Donna was serving balls to some lucky fans before the mixed doubles match.

I'll post the rest of mine tomorrow

Re: Donna Vekic

Thanks for the report and vids BT

I'm pretty sure her team knew there's a good chance that Petko pulls out. I doubt they'd travel so early for no valid reason, so they must've heard Andrea is not 100% healthy. But anyway, it'll be interesting hearing more news.

Probably not, but I'd be willing to be they have stuff with which they can keep track of the tour from the inside, as well as maintain personal contacts with various people - you know, things like cell phones, computers...I'm pretty sure they have them.

Re: Donna Vekic

Just got Donna to sign a tennis ball for me, she also gave me a signed photo of her without me even asking Will show you guys when I get home.

I asked her if she's playing now that Petkovic is out and she said "If they don't get a replacement for her" so it's still not confirmed
