Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

she needs to go back to the challengers and regain some confidence. she isn't playing with any belief at the moment.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Going back to ITFs would be a start, she also needs to improve her fitness.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

^ Hopefully she will get her ranking up before Birmingham & will make the MD. but as far as her losing recently I not too worried I think she going through an sophomore slump atm many youngster go through this after having an decent/great season

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

I think she'll get through this slump and will eventually establish herself on the wta tour level. Just has a few things to figure out and improve. Fitness and movement needs to progress. Serve needs to work better, first shot after serve will improve too as her movement gets better.

After Indian Wells and Miami she might need to consider playing itfs, but as long as she keeps plugging away at it and changes a few things, I feel she can turn it around.

Klara isn't an easy draw. She just needs a win or two in IW or Miami qualies to increase her confidence.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Donna Vekic got an MDWC into BNP Pasirbas Open





Quote:
Former top five players Nadia Petrova and Vera Zvonareva; Americans Donald Young, Jack Sock, Ryan Harrison, Steve Johnson, Rhyne Williams, Coco Vandeweghe, Shelby Rogers, Vicky Duval and Taylor Townsend; and Donna Vekic and Belinda Bencic were granted wildcards into the main draws of the BNP Paribas Open, to be held March 3 - 16 at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, it was announced today by Tournament Director Steve Simon.

Russia’s Nadia Petrova has won 13 career WTA single titles and 24 doubles crowns. The former World No. 3 has reached nine Grand Slam quarterfinals, advancing to the semifinals twice. Fellow Russian star and 2009 BNP Paribas Open champion Vera Zvonareva has 12 career WTA singles triumphs and six doubles titles. The former World No. 2 also has two Grand Slam finals appearances.

In addition, nine Americans have been granted wildcards into the main draws including Donald Young, who reached the third round of this year’s Australian Open; 21-year-old Jack Sock, who advanced to the third round of the 2013 U.S. Open; Ryan Harrison, who boasted a career-high ranking of No. 43 in 2012; two-time NCAA Champion from USC Steve Johnson, who reached the third round of the 2012 US Open; Rhyne Williams, who is coming off a quarterfinals appearance at Delray Beach, pushing top-ranked American and World No. 13 John Isner to three sets; Coco Vandeweghe, a two-time ITF singles winner; Shelby Rogers, a four-time singles champion on the ITF circuit; Vicky Duval, who achieved a career-high ranking earlier this year after jumping 528 rankings places since the end of 2011; and 17-year-old Taylor Townsend, who turned professional in 2012 after reaching the top of the junior rankings earlier that year.

Two other international players receiving main draw wildcards are 17-year-old Croatian Donna Vekic, who reached a career-high ranking of No. 62 in 2013 and 16-year-old Belinda Bencic of Switzerland, who advanced to the second round of the Australian Open earlier this year.

“This year’s main draw wildcards span from established veterans, to rising American and international stars,” said Simon. “Awarding wildcards to players like Nadia Petrova, Vera Zvonareva, Donald Young, Jack Sock and others, add to the excitement for fans and provide the potential for these deserving athletes to make a run at the BNP Paribas Open.”

Qualifying wildcards were given to Americans Raymond Sarmiento, Stefan Kozlov, Clay Thompson, Irina Falconi, Madison Brengle, Grace Min and Allie Kiick, Australia’s Thanasi Kokkinaxis and the United Kingdom’s Heather Watson.

Sarmiento is a senior-standout at USC and member of two NCAA team championships for the Trojans. Sixteen-year-old Kozlov achieved a career-high ranking in February, after turning pro in 2013. Thompson reached a career-high ranking in 2013. Falconi cracked the WTA top 100 in 2011 and advanced to the second round of this year’s Australian Open. Brengle reached a career-high ranking earlier this year, and has won five ITF singles titles. Min won the 2011 US Open Junior Championship and three ITF titles in 2012, while Kiick also has three ITF singles crowns. Kokkinaxis advanced to the second round at this year’s Australian Open, where he pushed World No. 1 Rafael Nadal to three sets. Watson has one WTA singles title and two doubles titles.

In addition to the aforementioned qualifying wildcards, the winners of each BNP Paribas Challenge, the pre-qualifying event for the tournament, which takes place February 24 – March 1, will also be granted a berth into the 2014 BNP Paribas Open qualifying draw. Women’s qualifying starts March 3 and men’s qualifying begins March 4.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Wow this is first time that Donna gets a WC into some WTA event and especially huge one like this.
I actualy prefer this to playing qualies because I think she would lose there for sure but you never know who she might get in MD.
Also this WC could motivate her to play above her current level.
My point is that she would have lost anyway so better to be it in MD.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

MD WC

Well, she can play much better, we all know that. But that match against Zakopalova is one of the worst matches I watched it on stream. It would be nice if she could turn the things up already in big event like Indian Wells.

Tough time for Donna, but I believe that she will overcame it eventually.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

I guessing she got an MDWC because their judging on how well she been doin on WTA Tour the past two yr and not on her recent losses/slump but in all honesty I think it was an good pick for an WC I mean most of the other Youngster that on the raise are already ranked high enough too make the MD, through I must say I kinda shock they didn't give an WC too another American player like Sachia Vickery, Louisa Chirico, Samantha Crawford
