Re: Donna Vekic

^^ this.
Donna is 16. For her age, she played a great match. Same happened against Vesnina in Miami.

Re: Donna Vekic

Donna lost against Vesnina and U. Radwanska who are (almost) both top 30. We can't blame her for that. She is showing some really good consistency with beating all players she should beat (exception of Mattek in Kuala Lumpur but we also can't blame her for that as Beth almost won that tournament and played extraordinary well tennis for her) and with only 16 years old! There is not anything to object Donna so far. Maybe she could play some stronger challenger, but just to get some more matches and a little bit confidence but I guess her team know best. Let's go Donna. .

Re: Donna Vekic

Madrid is out of question, it's on clay and she hasn't ranking for MD.

Re: Donna Vekic

She is playing a 50K in Istanbul where she is Top Seed (Svitolina is also playing)
Good Move IMO as she could get 90 Points if she wins

It'll be interesting to see what she chooses regarding this. Last year LDA in Madrid qualies was #168 so her ranking is more than sufficient, and if it won't count towards the total number of events she's allowed into this year it could be a good idea to sign in. I know she is pretty useless on clay, but so are many others who get into claycourt events so who knows, she might get a few points, and the money is probably not bad on such a big event (even for qualies). But I doubt she'll choose to go if she has a hardcourt tournament just days before. On the other hand, it would be wise to get some claycourt preparation for RG...all in all...

Although I agree that if Donna wants to be a top player in the future she will have to get better on clay I think playing in Madrid would be a waste of time. In her last clay court tournament she lost in Round 2 of a 25K (yes it was to Friedsam but I think she would have won on hard) and the tournament before at Junior RG she lost to Rebecca Petersson. I don't think it will aid her in getting a higher ranking Still, Madrid is in altitude and if it was on Blue Clay again no one could move so she may have won a few rounds
Also, if she plays Madrid as a Merited Increase she won't be able to play Roland Garros as she has already used 3 (US Open, Australian Open and Miami) and RG is before her Birthday

Re: Donna Vekic

she can play RG, it just won't be a merited increase. you also only get two MIs for the slams, so she wouldn't be able to use one for RG even if she skipped madrid

Re: Donna Vekic

Istanbul on hard? Avoiding clay? Man she's gonna have to learn to play on it. Tomic was sucking on clay and he and his team decided 2 years ago to play 10k's on clay just to learn(he was losing in early rounds) and already last year he was able to win matches in ATP MD's(on clay).
