That sounds about right I'd say, assuming she stays healthy and everything goes as planned.

Hope she didn't withdraw from Chinese events because of some injury, although I have to say I wasn't crazy about seeing her name in both of these, as she has a limited number of professional events to play until her 16th birthday.

Good luck in Melbourne!

I haven't checked the rules, but I've never heard of that being the case.

So two tough ITF's and then FC - sounds like an exciting start of the year for Donna. Let's hope being seeded in Melbourne gives her enough of an advantage to make it at least to QF. And that we don't see a Croatian R1 clash in either of the two Australian events

Great news. Seems that she's starting to get recognised as being a future star.

Indeed, great news!

P. S. In Loy Yang draw her professional ranking (394) is the third highest, after Putintseva (243) and Bouchard (302). But of course, these girls are 1 year and 18 months older, respectively.

Re: Donna Vekic

Some more perspective on Donna's 2011 achivements. Using opening 2012 rankings...

(1) Martic has 1129 points from 23 tournaments played in the past year, which gives an average of 49,08 points.

(2) Lucic is 518/31 = 16,70
(3) Tomljanovic is 439/26 = 16,88
(4) Mijacika is 304/19 = 16,00

(5) Mrdeza is 206/21 = 9,80
(6) Vrljic is 190/30 = 6,33
(7) M. Abramovic is 117/15 = 7,80

(8) Vekic is 105/7 = 15,00!

Pretty amazing

Re: Donna Vekic

Is she actually going to be playing Fed Cup or is she just going to be on the squad? I suspect the latter...

Not long until G1 Loy Yang Traralgon.

Most likely, but we can only speculate about that for now. Still, I think even being on the squad and maybe playing one match of lesser importance would be great experience for her. Who knows, maybe she gets to play doubles or something. Of course, how each of the team members will play in the first few weeks of the year will certainly influence Majoli's choices.

Re: Donna Vekic

In the first round of the G1 tournament in Traralgon, Australia, Donna is playing against Miho Kowase from Japan.

Kowase is 1.5 years older than Donna and she is #65 on the junior rankings, but in May 2011 she was in top 20.Nevertheless I expect win in this match for Donna.

According to the last year results, Donna seems to be better player.Kowase didn't have any great results.Only two QF's.She played three Grand slams (AO,Wimbledon,RG) and didn't won a match.

Re: Donna Vekic

Shouldn't have too much trouble with her opening round.
