I think I will make a 0.5 L of coffee and enjoy the early snowy morning
I'm secretly hoping for torrential downpours in Melbourne until about 6 AM Croatian time Honestly, I'm not sure if I'll make it, but it could be fun to join the forum, that's for sure

Re: Donna Vekic

Another interesting article:

http://www.vecernji.hr/sport/tenis/m...-clanak-497485

It's almost an introduction to Donna and Ana (Konjuh) for those who don't follow tennis as much, and the article on occasion sounds like it's been written by someone who doesn't follow tennis as much also. For example, they say Donna reminds of Lucic? If they're talking about the game it's clar that they don't know much at all about tennis, cause Ana's game is considerably more similar to that of Lucic. If it is because she has long, (dyed) blond hair, well, going by that they can say Sabine Lisicki reminds of Mirjana too. They also state that Ana shocked the tennis world by winning Eddie Herr...? Wasn't she one of the seeds? Didn't she reach the quarters of Wimbledon doubles before that? It's not exactly as if she came out of nowhere to win it.

But onto the important stuff - alegedly someone from Donna's camp said that the goal for 2013 is to try to establish her as a top 50 player. Well talk about ambitious goals. However, I wonder how achievable is it. A player ranked that high has around 1200 points, which would mean that Donna would have to collect about 100 per month, or about 120 if her season is to be shorter than the year by two months (as it often is for players). Since she is limited in the number of events, she probably won't play more than one event on most months of the year, which means that she'd have to make about 100 pts in that one event. This would make it impossible for her to enter any 25k or 50k tournaments, cause only 50k+H and above events offer close to 100 pts or more.

The article also says some stuff we already know, like that she is happy and honered to play Fed Cup, that she can't wait to play against the best ones out there in Melbourne, that they have a strict plan and are sticking to it, that she sticks to eating the same meal throughout the week as long as she is winning (wacko-jacko), that she is prone to oscillations in the game due to inexperience and that's pretty much it.

And, oh yeah, they call the girls "two croatian jewels in Melbourne"

Re: Donna Vekic

Donna and mirjana have same one dimensional tennis game - flat hitting. On the other side, ana has fast ball, but she often use slice and drop shots.

Re: Donna Vekic

honestly, if they play well, we'll advance from that group. austria is the only challenge and i think petra/donna can get through it. petra will need to play better than at AO though...

Re: Donna Vekic

Hi guys, new here. Why are we writing on English if we are all Croatian? Anyways, you people sound like you will actually watch the match. If so, how is it possible to watch it?

First of all welcome to the forum and Donna's thread!!!

English is official language of this forum, this is not Croatian forum and it's not true that we are all from Croatia here..

We are not watching the match, we are just tracing live score on the Australian Open web page or on HRT teletext number 661 or somewhere else...

Not all Croatian

There's no way to watch the match. The match isn't on one of the 7 TV courts.
