Re: Donna Vekic

What a run! I hope she's physically prepared for the final. Her matches were short, but it's still a lot. Anyway, good luck!

Yeah it is pretty amazing. Still, no offence but these are reallyy easy 25ks, except for moscow, wjere she lost. Taraken will be better beacause its slightly harder, but not too hard

BTW, when did you here them talking about her on Eurosport (just curious)? Which version of Eurosport are we talkin' about (British or "original")? As in, on tv, or just on their website?

You might be right about a QWC, but I still wouldn't hold my breath about it.
In Indian Wells, when Radwanska was playing Azarenka, they were talking about david felgate and donna. They were ralking about her age, base, their goals and how she grew up. The commentators were sam smith and someone else. I dont think its british eurosport, because I watch eurosport in australia on tv, not a stream

I'd say grass could suit her since she has a strong game (good serve, powerful forehand). I wouldn't be suprised if throughout her career clay proves to be her weakest and hard her strongest surface.

Ching you keep saying she only plays weaker tourneys... i think this is better for her at this point. Last year she played 10k's and then crossed over to 25k's. Who is to say she wont cross to 50k's within the next one year? Her career is developing just fine.

Also, note that since she is so young she has a LIMIT of number of tournaments she is allowed to play so she has to plan carefully as to where to participate. What is the point in going into 10 50k qualies and pass to 3 main draws at her age.
You make a good point. i often forget shes 15

When it comes to Donna, stamina is the least of my worries, cause she seems to have some freakishly high energy levels. That was especially evident in juniors at the start of last year, when she had no problems stringing a great deal of wins in super-tough conditions like those in India.

Today is a really big test for her, let's hope she'll bring her A game to the court

Unfortunately I lost today 63 36 36 . Very happy with the way I played but she was better today
Such a shame... But it's still a great result. Can't wait for her next tournament.

Re: Donna Vekic

Yeah, pitty about the finals, but still no shame in losing to Puchkova - not even these days. After all, it was a match between a qualifier and the 2nd seed.

Looking forward to the rest of the season

Re: Donna Vekic

According to her FB page the last set finished 2:6. A single break would've been better, of course, but still a nice result overall. She also said that Puchkova played fantastic tennis.

Wish that she'd won but still another great result. She's really doing well at the moment and making great progress.

I believe the place is called Tamarkan (or something like that), it's a 25k ($25000 prize money) challenger in Indonesia, starting on the 13th of May if I'm not mistaken.

Re: Donna Vekic

Too bad, but it's worth noting that Donna will land around rank 285 with this final. This secures her MD Entry to almost any 25k.

Re: Donna Vekic

except anetts stupid choice of 25ks:Bath, Tunis and Chiasso (beygelzimmer at 204 is LDA for chiasso for anett)
Still, great result from donna. i am liking her more and more every week. Is she heading back to london???
BTW, where does she get her money to travel to uzbekistan and indonesia for just 1 tourney
