Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Such a disappointing performance from Donna

Low first serve percentage, too many wild FH's, bad movement and unreliable BH. I am really concerned for Donna, her last win on WTA tour was in September (6 months ago)

Really don't know what is happening with her

Six months without a win, it is time for big changes !!!

Things will get better when she turns 18 in June.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

From KleinBiere:

2nd Serve Points Won
2012: 54%
2013: 51%
2014: 37%
Today: 24%

Her second serve effectiveness went from being elite (top of the WTA, albeit in limited action) to abysmal.

(Second serve points won above 50% is extremely good in WTA.)

+1 What to add any more?? I understand this is long term process but still...her slump is since Birmingham, it is about 9 months now and it is really long period of time!

Could you elaborate on this? I doubt just lifting the age restrictions will do the trick here. It's a much bigger issue IMO.

This is true, but her opponents during the 2012 and even 2013 season weren't exactly the caliber of Lisicki and the likes. I agree that her 2nd serve is a real target for most of her opponents these days, but what I actually wonder is, why isn't she trying to come forward more often? I find it that her forward movement is not bad and with her serving/returning skills, she should be creating a lot more opportunities to approach the net. I understand the fact that she is not comfortable doing that, but in matches like the one today she really doesn't have that much to lose and could at least give it a shot. Most of her in-court points ended well for her today, and even if she doesn't like the net, it should be her target much more than it is right now. Sticking this much to baseline is obviously not doing anything for her, and I hope they start working along these lines (so to speak) in the near future.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Sad to say, but I don't think Donna is good enough for this level at the moment. She needs to drop down to ITFs, find her rhythm again, gain some confidence and work back up to WTA level. Her movement today was shocking, she looks really off the pace. I hope her team makes some changes soon, before she gets stuck in a real rut.

The cofidence has got to be subpar as well. All these loses in R1 are probably affecting her on court too. I still believe in Donna but agree with chicharito. Maybe it won't hurt to drop down to a few ITFs.

Is she playing qualies in IW and/or Miami?

Not the age restrictions, but the urgency of competing as an adult.
