Kuala Lumpur QF: (7)Donna Vekic def. (4)Patricia Mayr-Achleitner 6-4 7-5

Congrats Donna

The game at 5-5 in the second set was absolutely epic though. Mayr had broken Donna serving for the match in the previous game, and then broke herself with 4 laughable UEs in a row to love.

All in all the quality of the match was pretty decent though I thought. But the "crowds" in KL...

Mayr
Donna being way cooler than her opponent is what made a big difference in this match.
Just hoping she finds some form too for her next match, she will need it.
I think it's safe to say that Zhang is better than any of players Vekic played so far here.

It was. Saw most of the second set and Vekic played very well.

Vekic does the basics (baseline power rallying) so, so well - textbook technique, good enough footwork, clean ballstriking. Lacks that extra bit of raw power that would make her ground game truly lethal and her movement doesn't allow her to play defence with much effectiveness. Plus, even though her service motion is textbook smooth, her 2nd serve is a puffball.

But she's way better than her current ranking, that's for sure.

Mayr-Alzheimer played her usual game - mostly impotent and sometimes erratic aggressive baseline grinding with some touches of counterpunching. But her FH just doesn't hold up when attacked - can't handle returning any decent serve, can't handle heavy topspin, can't handle deep shots.
