Donna Vekic?

In doing a little pre match size up I just realized that Vekic has not only never faced
a player of Wozniacki's caliber but she has in fact had barely any pro level experience
at all(this is just her 2nd Tour level MD and only her 4th tour level event period)yet at
16 she is in the top 100 and in the 2nd round of a major!


How rare is it to have someone be at this level with barely any tour experience??

Re: Donna Vekic?

First time seeing her was in Tashkent, and man was she pretty to watch. Right now vs Wozniacki she looks nervous + the heat might be affecting her from doing her usual thing.

Re: Donna Vekic?

First time I'm seeing her and I'm not really impressed. Guessing it's only a bad match but she still got that really junior-like game. Got an AWESOME forehand but the serve and backhand need tons of work. As I said it's probably a bad day for her with the heat. That being said, her ranking may be a bit exaggerated due to her Tashkent run where she didn't realy beat big names. Still she's a good girl to watch for in the next few years!

I am impressed with Vekic. She's obviously nervous and is making some bad errors, but her forehand is awesome.

What moron would leave the roof open when it's 106 degrees? And yes, seeing her for the first time, she does have a sweet forehand.

It would be unfair to make it easier for the players who play on a court with a roof.

It's closed a bit so they have some shade - if she played MCA or later she'd be in the sun all the time which changes things

A. She's 16. B. You can't prepare for THIS type of heat. C. There's a rule that ESPN put up which states you can suspend any matches commencing on outer courts.

The whole court is in sun. The shade is only on the sides of 2 parts of the court. Not really helping.

Re: Donna Vekic?
