Disappointing, didn't appear able to hold her serve 2nd set.

Re: Donna Vekic

Well it's kinda bad that she gets routined by a player who's a year younger than her. I'm sure if this match was played in a $25K Donna would've won.

But a quarterfinal is still a nice breakthrough. Hopefully she can improve at the US Open.

Re: Donna Vekic

Seems like we're all in agreement - a nice result, but a little disappointing in the end. Let's hope she can at least go this far in NY.

Re: Donna Vekic

Is she going to play US Open Juniors???
There is no point in Juniors unless either you want Confidence, Junior Exempts or Sponsorships. She will never be good enough at Juniors to get Junior Exempts and soon she won't need them any more, she has sponsors that contribute to her and given her choice of locations to play tournaments, money doesn't seem to be a problem. And finally, her confidence is sky high on the Pro Circuit. So I don't see the point in her spending the money to travel. If she needs the matches, do Club Tennis for a little while in Germany or the Netherlands, which is at her level as well. Or play WTAs or Higher Level Challengers where she has to play Qualies. I have sometimes wondered whether it isn't a good thing for a player who could get in the MD playing Qualies as well. I mean look at Zheng Jie. She could have been seeded for the MD in Birmingham and she played Qualies. She almost lost her First Round Qualies Match but ended up making the semis. If she had not played Qualies, she most likely would have lost first round. So why shouldn't Donna, who is limited by Age Eligibility laws, try this. IDK but there are so many better alternatives IMO than playing US Open Juniors

Re: Donna Vekic

Donna continues her jet-setting, tournament-whoring ways: she's on the acceptance list for $25K Campos do Jordao (Brazil) the week of July 16. Will this be her first time in South America?

It's a weak draw, so she'll likely be the #2 seed

I think it is a waste of her time to play Juniors because actually IMO she is better than all but a few of them, but loses because of the mental side. She will lose once again around the 3rd ROund and will leave her with nothing but a disappointment. IMO she should play European Championships in Klosters (which she isn't ) and get on the practice court and try and win as many matches as possible to make USO Qualies. That, my friend, will help her career. Although, if she makes Qualies, I guess it would make sense for her to play Juniors as well so I guess you have a point. But still, stop calling me a troll and saying how stupid I am!!!!!!

That tournament used to have a stream, so if they bring it back this year we will finally get to see her play on hard
She obviously want to make USO qualies or she wouldn't be whoring so much. This is where whoring is okay. It's for the greater good
After USO, I want to see her on the WTA

Re: Donna Vekic

Well, Donna still has a limited number of tournaments that she can play in seniors and she is just playing junior grand slams. Which I definitely approve. I mean, that are grand slams, big stage, and I guess every tennis player (especially junior one) would like to see how that looks and to feel that atmosphere. Also, she is still too young in my opinion to just concentrate on seniors. I mean, it is definitely good to put concentration and focus on seniors but she is too young to play only seniors. And junior grand slams are the best of junior tennis. I see a lot of more positive sides of playing junior grand slams then not. At least, at this moment for Donna.

Agreed. Due to limited number of senior tournaments IMO she should still play 5-6 junior tournaments per year. Those, of course, include the Grand Slams. They can provide good practice for her and a chance to try out a few things in her game. Practicing can't beat trying it out on court.
If you ask me, time when she should move on to senior slams is maybe from next year's Wimby or USO. So atleast one more year.

Re: Donna Vekic

Donna said that her coach didn't want of her to play junior's Wimbledon, but she insisted. He dosn't want that she plays juniors tournaments anymore. It is writen on her web site that she will play qualifying on US OPEN.
