Still, she could've handled it better.
First was that "episode" with Felgate in Birmingham, now this, and only God knows what is happening at training every day behind closed doors. I'm not so surprised...it's easy to be all smiley faces when everything is going OK, the beer is cool, the weather is sunny and England will win the World Cup...

But I'm convinced that Donna and Felgate are aware that things are not going the way they thought...who knows what we'll see till the end of the season.

If that's true, that is very poor behavior of Donna and I will not defend her. But, can we get some "prove", video or something?? Cause this also can be "lie" (I do not say that you are lying) or emphasized story from one part of looking at situation.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Personally I think people are being too harsh on Donna. I didn't see anything unacceptable from her. As far as I can tell people are referring to the moment at 1:50 in the second video I posted in the video thread, and she wasn't too bad at all, just annoyed with missing the shot, calling to the boy a couple of times to make sure she got the ball to hit, nothing over the top.

I watched that and I agree with you. Also, people forget Donna is also still a kid and that sometimes it is difficult to control emotions. But this time she was nervous because of lost point and was waiting too long after that for the ball. She wasn't that rude to ball kid. I mean, should she act happiness and smiling when she is nervous?? Also, any person shouldn't get someone's "not nice look" too serious, right (where Donna would be if she was looking and analyzing in depth how someone looked at her?)?

Both of these 'episodes' as you call them, I wouldn't definately call that... In my opinion she wasn't disrespectful and out of place in Birmingham nor was she here. I mean she can't always be super happy and have a smile when the goings get tough, but at any moment she wasn't disrespectful and behaved badly as some of you here said.
And also I don't really think that there is any tension between her and Felgate. He very well knows that with so young players like Donna is there is a lot of up and downs and she still has a lot of time to improve in every department if she continues to train hard. She still is the second youngest player in Top 100 (for almost two years now) and I'm confident she will make some good results till the end of the year.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

I've just opened the live scores and see that after the first 10 games there are now 6 breaks of serve - 3 apiece, 5:5...looks like an ugly match by the stats.
