Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

It's because although Sabine couldn't serve, Donna also couldn't land first serves at the end. So she couldn't take advantage of the situation properly.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

This match showed that Donna's problems now are not just because of her terrible form, she also totaly lost the mental edge, she can't normaly play a match, it's all a big strugle.

She needs a wake up call definitely, ITFs are awaiting, first of all to get some confidence back.
This was such a wasted opportunity, "old" Donna would win this match easily with solid play...

This, she seems to have lost the confidence that made her so dangerous...

3-4 in 3rd set? No way, that ball was out. Could clearly see a gap.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

IK this may sound extreme and I do not mean to troll but would it be totally unwise to just stop playing tournaments for a while, train really hard on Clay + save up some of her precious tournaments due too AER, and then play three oor 4 Clay ITFs/MMs later on, hopeffuly having gained some confidence on the surface? One of the things I have always felt has held her back on Clay is that she goes into it not having practised enough on it... This could be the perfect opportunity to improve her game given that she isn't exactly in killer HC form

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Luckily I didn't get to see a whole lot of it so I can't really comment, what I did see though wasn't too bad from Donna. Of course, this loss will hurt like hell, but I think it was a better performance by Donna than some of her previous matches. Seems like things are getting a bit better (feel free to call me crazy), no matter how glacially slow the process of improvement might seem.

To regain lost confidence is one of the toughest things a tennis player has to face, so I don't expect things to happen over night for her, but if she can keep it together and fight like hell on some lesser tournaments, she can definately get it back together. There is a reason why Venus Williams says that she is "brainwashed into being a champion", cause everybody who's into tennis knows how mental of a game it is.

Hopefully someone can help Donna keep believing that she can get back onto her path, cause we know she can play much better than she has been lately. There's no doubt she is working hard, even Chris Evert recently tweeted of seeing Donna working very hard at the gym, and it must be frustrating to work, yet find oneself stuck in a hole, but at one point or another hard work has to start paying off. It's "just" a matter of finding the right recipe for the ingredients at hand and getting the balance of fitness practice, tennis practice and choice of tournaments right. Easy, I know...

I'm not sure a break from tennis is what she needs right now, cause the season has just begun, but I do believe she could use some higher level ITF's for the moment. Don't know what they have in plan for after the Fed Cup, but I'd seriously consider spending a lot more time in the States this year. A tournament in Osprey (50k) is scheduled just between Miami and Charleston, assuming a player looses quite early in Miami, and assuming the main draw entry list isn't much tougher than last year so that she doesn't have to qualify. After those 3 there would be Dothan and Charlottesville right after Charleston and then Indian Harbour Beach after a one week break - all those tournaments are 50k's played on green clay. It would be brutal scheduling, but I think something like this could benefit her in the long run, even if it means skipping Indian Wells. A combination of surface and field toughness in these events could be just right to get her back on track in time for RG, and she could still play an event or two (Rome qualies for exameple) on red clay and get used to the conditions.

But anyway, we can only speculate which route will Mr. Felgate take at this point, it's Fed Cup time next for Miss D. Best of luck there
