Re: Donna Vekic

Kraljevic has a few decent wins this year so this might be tricky, but all things considered, Donna really couldn't have asked for a better draw. This is a real chance for her. Let's see if she can take it.

Re: Donna Vekic

6:1, 6:2

Very nice numbers as well, 2 aces, 1 df, 60% of 1st serve, 73% of points won after returning the 2nd serve, break points won 7/11. Unfortunately I couldn't follow the live scores, but judging from the stats there were a few problems. She was broken twice, won just 35% of points after 2nd serve and allowed her opponent a total of 40 points (compared to 61 that she won)! Of course she's young and all that, but that really looks like something her camp should work on. She definetely seems to have quality, but lack of experience is just as obvious (which is no wonder, of course).

Congrats Donna on your first ever challenger-level win, and good luck in R2

Great win!!But we must keep in mind that this is clay surface on witch players loose their serve much easier than on hard court surfaces and with years Donna will get on some muscles and with that stronger serve...we are waiting her opponent in R2.I think it's gonna be Estrella Cabeza Candela and it will be I'm afraid last match for Donna in this tournament but this is already big success.

Re: Donna Vekic

Donna was a lot better than her opponent so it was hard to keep concentration and not think about winning before it was over.
She played brilliant first 4 games where she showed all her talent and Kraljevic seemed like punching bag.
Then it became a bit harder, but all she had to do is keep playing without UEs, that alone was enough.
Kraljevic played in second set lot better, tried to go for it but of course even then difference was obvious and it wasn't enough.
Donna can surely play a lot better, after all better wasn't necessary this time.
I'm impressed with her talent, fast hand, gets nicely into court to hit ball early for winners. First serve is good and second can only get better. She hit few really good kick serves after she missed first serve!
All in all if she keeps improving by the same rate it would be amazing.
For a 14 yearold she is already very tall and her body is growing still of course. She looked stronger than her today's opponent and was taller.
Kraljevic looks like Szavay , she has good feel, hit few nice drop shots!
Here are two vids I took of Donna:

Re: Donna Vekic

YOU TOOK VIDS?!

Thanks a bunch!!!

She also seems to be moving very well for a tall player (I read somewhere that she's 177 cm). It's pretty obvious even from these 3 minutes of videos that she was much better than her opponent. Nice that you got the match point too.

Oh, thanks for the report on this one too!

Re: Donna Vekic

Donna plays tomorrow first match on the center court at 11 AM so if Tenismaster goes to see the match he could filme the whole court from the stands so that we can all see the future champion at work.
