Re: Donna Vekic

Wozniacki, Hsieh, Jovanovski lead the field in Malaysia. Hope that Donna will avoid Wozniacki in early rounds

Re: Donna Vekic

Kuala Lumpur was where Donna made her WTA debut last year

As long as she avoids Wozniacki I don't see why she can't make a quarterfinal, especially as she's beaten Jovanovski before. Hsieh could be trickier especially as she's already beaten Donna.

Re: Donna Vekic

Donna's whoring in the house tonight
But seriously, I think this is a good choice of tournament
I would actually have gone with Pattaya as apparently it is a very nice tournament and it is quite weak
Why didn't she play 75K Eilat???
She has Fed Cup the next week
It was probably too strong

And how would you call the fact that Wozniacki will be competing in the same tournament?

Yeah, a 75k with #220 as the last direct entry is too strong and a WTA with the same at 149 and Wozniacki in the draw is not - give me a break. The highest ranked player in the Eliat list currently is around #120, which would make Donna the top seed. Instead, she's chosen a tournament in which she might not even get seeded and therefore risks losing in the first or second round (1 or 30 pts), compared to what a decent and quite achievable result like a semi on a 75k would do for her (70 pts). I'm actually thrilled to see her playing two non-challenger tournaments back to back for only the third time in her life (after Moscow-Kuala Lumpur and US Open-Tashkent).

Anyway, yesterday there was an interview with Woz on Eurosport and she basically said that she knew she can expect Donna to crack under the pressure so she just tried to keep the ball in play like anyone in her place would against someone so young. Of course she also said that Donna is a good player and all that.

But I also remembered how in "Game, set and Mats" they talked about the courts, which is something that was definately the factor in Donna's match yesterday. Turns out that, due to not being resurfaced, the outer courts play much faster than the main courts (according to Wilander), and we all know that considerably slower courts is not something that favors Donna as opposed to Wozniacki. Of course, that's not why Donna lost, and I'm not saying that she would've won were the match scheduled for court 20, but maybe the result wouldn't have included a breadstick.

After reading this, I wish Donna had whored and played Eilat instead of Malaysia

She won't improve unless she plays top plays on a regular basis. The more she plays the better players the better.

Re: Donna Vekic

Considering her ambitions for the year, as well as current capabilities, I'd say her best pick for the moment are 235k internationals and 100k challengers, along with some mandatories of course (slams and one or two other events).

Also it would prepare her for Fed Cup well and give her the opportunity to play against some lower ranked players because she is not at WTA level yet

Beating a bunch of lower ranked player will not help her get to "WTA level".

She is better of training that week .

Well playing in KL won't help her get to WTA level either as it is so weak
Playing Eilat will at least get her more points
