From what I know, her family is not exactly poor (great for her), but she is also signed with Nike, and that's a financial cushion in itself. Given how good of a prospect she is, I doubt she lacks sponsorship money.

Just to illustrate how it goes: Lucic (our former teenage sensation) was reportedly offered a $500,000 sponsorship deal on the spot after reaching the semis of Wimbledon back in '99; but her father, reportedly, declined asking for twice as much. Sure enough, Donna isn't there yet, but I think her Nike deal can secure her enough traveling money for now.

Sponsorships at this age arent huge though unless you have good junior results. How many common peoplke will know Donna compared to Taylor Townsend. that doesnt mean Taylors better. From what I know, Anett was signed by Prince and Nike when she was 14 and gets I think $12000 from the two now, which is abnormally large. I think federations help a bit. Anett gets money from tallink (the official sponsor of estonian tennis association) and gets loans from the federation, so donna would get lots from croatian federation, they would love to see such an up and coming player

You are right, I must've mixed something up, but I specifically remember an article that mentioned the said sum and how her father declined; so I immediately made the connection to that Wimbledon.

Re: Donna Vekic

On the new ranking list Donna will be close to top 290.She will earn 34 points from Uzbekistan, but she will lose 8 points from last year tournament in Hvar.So she will have 181 point on Monday.

Thats problem if you play/practice whole year on hard surface, casing for more and more points could be too expensive.

Re: Donna Vekic

Interesting article with Donna, the most important things she says in article:

- At the moment she has a lot of confidence
- She is happy she found her form after bad start of season, she told she has learnt from that matches
- Now she is preparing for tournament in Indonesia and after that she will start to practice for junior Roland Garros
- She is not interested in junior tennis anymore (she is just interested in junior grand slams), only seniors
- Her goal until end of this season is top 200 (but she says she has to work a lot for that)
