I seriously hope you're wrong about 2013, cause for someone with this kind of a fast and constant improvement, that would be too slow. We're talking about a girl who's been outside of 100 just two months ago and is now getting to top50. I know it's not right to build big expectations around someone so young, but if you don't have ambition or high goals, you can't really expect great things. Anyway, by 2013 I think that Donna will be playing ITF pro challengers, if everything goes as planned until then.

She would need ~700 points. Only points from the best six tournaments count, and doubles points count very little (they're divided by 4, for ranking purposes).

That means she would need ~100 points per tournament in singles (let's assume she picks up the remaining 100 points from all her doubles results). Even after her recent successes, the current average from her best six tournaments is only 57 points.

Of course, as she plays GA and G1 tournaments she will have more chances to pick up big points. On the other hand, the competition in those tournaments will be much stiffer.

I think it's very possible that Donna will reach the top 10 next year or in 2013 but, no, not this year.
Yes,but...You forget that girls that are now #10 or #9 will have to defend their points and Donna don't have very much points to defend especially on GA,G1 i G2 tournaments.

I don't know what's your problem,you don't have to be a Superman to be #10 with 15 years in junior competition.If I think that she is Superman then I would compare her with Martina Hingis who was #87 in SENIOR competition when she was younger than Donna is today,and won her first SENIOR title when she was 15 (Donna will be 15 in few months),and won her first Grand Slam title when she was 16.That is IMO Superman.I don't expect that from Donna.If Donna continue play like this in the rest of the season she WILL be in the top 10 this year it's not supernatural gift,it's just mathematics...she wouldn't be the first and she wouldn't be the last girl to be in top 10 with 15 years in JUNIOR competition.If that happens it's just a promising and a very good result but nothing spectacular and unnatural.

Re: Donna Vekic

i actually think this next match will tell us a lot. she's playing a girl ranked #25 and she is probably pretty tired at this point. let's see how she does

that's fine
but i don't like when somebody says, for 17 years old girl, "she is finished, we will turn to 14 years old one now". or " she is mental midget" (17 years old girl)

Re: Donna Vekic

let's stop fighting in this forum we're all on the same side. clearly, the current situation in croatian tennis, especially the women's game, is bleak at the moment (and has been since..99ish?). donna is clearly a talent. it's stupid to predict her ranking now, she's so young. lots of good players had shitty junior careers and lots of bad players had awesome junior careers. tomorrow's match is really important for her and we'll see how she does and we should just take it one step at a time. at the end of the day, who cares about being in the junior top 10? we've had a ridiculous number of players make it there...lucic, kostanic, abramovic, tomljanovic, zovko, ancic, etc. etc. etc. and they've all had very different careers (from top10 to slam champ to journeywoman).

right now we have a couple of young, very promising players. tomljanovic, vekic, coric, maybe even njiric if she can get her shit together. so how about we just take these results for what they are and not get ahead of ourselves. donna is phenomenal for her age, maybe the best in the world, but who knows what her future holds

Re: Donna Vekic

(3)Donna Vekic (CRO) d. (1)Zarah Razafimahatratra (MAD) 63 64
top25 win straight sets, even though she's gotta be tired at this point

withdrew from the doubles final...no clue if it was donna or her partner.
