Interesting how people never read any of the previous posts. First Bluetrees asks the same question, gets an answer 9 posts ago, then Svizac two posts later tells Bluetrees that he doesn't know the answer, and now another poster comes up with the same question
So for those who'll wonder the same in the following days:
DONNA NEXT PLAYS IN MONTERREY.
the better way to get all attention is to modify the title as it goes ma re, since you're the thread starter what do you think?
She'll have a really good chance to move up in the rankings until mid-September (Tashkent). She defends 35 points in April, 64 in May, 8 in June, 68 in July and 50 in August. That's only 225 points (30% of her total) in the next five months.
quick run down guys--vesnina was just too good. donna fought well, but vesnina was very solid. donna served pretty well (hit some very nice slice second serves on the duece side). i would have liked to see a bit more variety from her. vesnina's drop shots were killer. elena also had net cord winners at key moments (twice on bp for donna, on ad-in at 3*-2 in the second and a few other instances). donna did get robbed by a call the first time she got to 0-30, but it was the far line and the ump wouldn't overrule. all in all, a good experience from donna. i wouldn't be surprised if elena challenged sharapova in the next round.
