Re: Donna Vekic

Nice win! Next round she will face Cirstea who beat Jovanovski 61 16 61...

Cirstea is 3rd seed and a good grass player. To Donna, just do her best and nothing to lose.

Come on next round! Hope she can make more wins.

Re: Donna Vekic

It is a good sign that she was able to win the third set eventhough she seemed very tired

My stream died at deuce in the last game and I missed the following point; what happened there to make Sanchez not want to shake the umpire's hand?
For me too but I tried again and just saw that umpire gave penalty point to Sanchez. Didn't see why.

Re: Donna Vekic

Maria was given a point penalty, but I don't remember her receiving another code violation before that...I was so pissed at Maria's reaction in one point. She was complaining all the time about calls, but there was one call on near side line, and Sanchez starts yelling on the umpire because she overruled from the chair. Ok, if it was from far side line you can be mad, but chair umpire can see everything that is going on on the near side line, she was just rude on few occasions.

Donna played a good match,served great at important points, that dropshot at deuce when she was serving for 4:2 was just unbelievable. She needs to go to the net more often when she has the chance, and also use slice( she uses it only in defense).

If you find a YouTube upload will you post it here? The Internet connection I have this week won't play the streams well so I'm skipping the matches

If you find one, thanks in advance

Great comeback! Can't wait to watch the match against Cirstea.

Re: Donna Vekic

Wow, what a fight - kudos to Donna for bringing it safely to the finish!

I didn't know much (read: anything) about Sanchez before this match, so was a little puzzled about what to expect, but she proved to be a better player than I expected honestly. That was particularly evident in the first set, where Donna's level wasn't exactly where you'd expect it. Her serve wasn't very good, and she just kept bashing the ball as if she wanted to fire Sanchez into the oblivion. Needless to say, it didn't work. Sanchez pounded the ball right back and kept herself in many of the rallies without much trouble. The thing is, in that first set Donna wasn't ready to take (m)any risks, so her shots landed around mid-court most of the time as she was hoping that the brute force will be enough to take care of Sanchez.

In the second she seemed to have figured this out so she eased the pace a little and started going for some angles. This, of course, proved too much for Sanchez as she began to make more and more mistakes, growing her own frustration. I would assume that having to qualify i.e. play extra matches here didn't help her at this time cause one would imagine she was getting tired by the end of the second. In the third Donna could get back to Plan A, which she did, and pound her way to victory, again not going for too much on most of the points. But was it a long and a brutally tough one or what... I expect to hear much more of Sanchez in the following years.

Next up Cirstea, boy, will that be a tough cookie. Luckily Donna loves cookies. Let's just hope she doesn't break all her teeth today. Cirstea is beyond experienced, a great player on a number of surfaces and currently on a roll. I was actually surprised to have seen her lose a set to Jovanovski yesterday, as Bojana is not exactly a grasscourt specialist, but who knows what might've happened in that one. There's one thing we can be sure of today, the match won't be a boring one and Donna will have to be at her absolute best, ready to give it 150% if she is to stand any chance of winning. But as we often say, she's already done great this week, anything more would be a bonus

The only detail I'd like to see get better today is that freakin' computer graphics of WTA Birmingham, which seems to have went through it's last update some time in the mid 19th century, when tennis was first played at this club. The scores shown on screen oftentimes don't have anything to do with the match in question OK, jokes aside, as long as Donna is winning I don't need computer graphics.

Good luck girl, be ready, be gready, be wise, be confident and show what you're made of
