Re: Donna Vekic

Marie Elise Casares (ECU) v Donna Vekic (CRO)
(12)Victoria Duval (USA) v (Q)Sarah Beth Askew (GBR)

the first round is ok, she is the favorite. duval is one of the toughest players in the draw though, imo. she's only 6 months older than donna, but has pretty awesome results and only really loses to top juniors

Same thing could be said about Donna: in her last 18 matches she has only one loss, and it was to Khromacheva (#3 and CH #1)!

Good luck, Donna!

^ Yup, it's true--Duval will be tough. Let's hope that Donna surprises us.

I was expecting those events to be more competitive, honestly.
As it turns out, Gavrilova is in the Roehampton draw (#1 seed). But you're right, where are the other top 10 players (Mestach, Khromacheva, Jabeur, Puig, Kostic, Kovinic)?

The boys draw is much tougher: it has 9 of the top 10 and 17 of the top 20. The boy's cut-off is #55 but #115 for the girls.

Re: Donna Vekic

well, to be fair, casares looks like a pure clay courter based on her results (which include a 10k title)

And that title, for which Casares got 12 points, had a spectacularly weak draw. Still, it's an excellent win for Donna. Best of luck in the next round!

Re: Donna Vekic

Wow, Donna got bageled... It was 7:5, 6:0. Definately not the match she needed right before Wimbledon, espeically considering how it could affect her confidence. Hope she gets over it soon.

Re: Donna Vekic

After seeing the draw I was really scared, but great to see she made it! First round loss is the last thing she needs right now, even if these are just junior competitions. Really hope she makes it to at least one notable junior result (preferably a semi or more on a slam) untill she fully switches onto the pro circuit.

Great job Donna! Best of luck in the next round!
