Because there are always some "very talented" girls, who's parents often just happen to know tournament officials and the likes, and they just happen to get those wild-cards. Of course, most often they justify this by getting bageled in R1. But anyway, Donna is already in Hvar, ready to start her qualies tomorrow.

Re: Donna Vekic

Hvar qualies draw is out. In R1 Donna plays fellow Croat Popovic. Whoever wins will play the #2 seed, Tabak (#835 but CH #546). The winner of that match will probably qualify since Tabak is the only player in that section who has a ranking.

Re: Donna Vekic

Good luck Donna!

Draw isn't the best, but judging by her results from Bol, she should be able to win at least QR1. But Tabak could be a very tough opponent and a very high obstacle for Donna to get over. But OK, let's take it a match at a time.

tabak was one of the top junior players a few years back...

Can't get too excited yet--it's only Croatian $10Ks, after all--but it's nice to see Donna collecting wins on the pro circuit: five in Bol and one so far in Hvar.

Good luck against Tabak!

Re: Donna Vekic

Very nice to see her bake some breadsticks again

Next match will be a real challenge, but hey, she said it more than once that the bigger the challenge, the more she's motivated. This next opponent of her's made some really solid wins - this time last year. But lately she wasn't exactly impressive for a 20 y.o. In fact in Bol last week, she qualified just like Donna, but unlike Donna, she failed to win a round. So why not hope, at least for a very nice battle and a competitive match.

Good luck Donna!

Re: Donna Vekic

Vekic def. Tabak 6:2 ret.

Not happy about anyone's injury (or whatever it was) but this is at least some help to Donna in terms of preserving some more energy. Now just one more win and into one more main draw. Hope it comes true.

Re: Donna Vekic

Donna won her last qualifying match, against Pondusova, 61 75.

In R1 she plays another unranked qualifier, Tarasova (juniors CH #128 this past January). It's definitely a winnable match for Donna. If she wins, she'll get her first ranking ever! Good luck, Donna!

Re: Donna Vekic

Nice job Dona

But, she would not just get her first ever ranking if she'd win that match, she'd also become only the fourth player ranked in top 1000, born after 1995. The remaining three are some American girl ranked in the low 900's, some girl from Ukraine ranked in the low 800's and some Australian wunderkind already ranked at #550.

Go for it girl! Best of luck

Yup, 1 for a 1st round loss in Zagreb last year, and 1 for each 2nd round on these 10k's (unless she goes on to win Hvar...). On "satelites" (10.000$ prize money), you don't get any points unless you reach the second round of a main draw.
