Nottingham F: Caroline Garcia (1) d. Donna Vekic (2) 2-6 7-6(4) 7-6(4)

Quite a surprising win as Caro never looked comfortable in Set 1 and Donna started so strong.
But just like in her last matches Caro began serving better and that helped her Tennis off the ground a lot! Huge mental boost after the disappointment in Paris.

Donna Heartbroken for her. She loves to play here and was so sad after the defeat.

Caro finding success when she travels without her father

She did well to turn this around. Quite a good level from both.

Clutch Caro made a return for the first time this year.

That match was a great battle, shame there had to be a loser.

Fine margins but it all came down to the serve in the end, Caro was clutch, Donna's serving cost her.

There may be hope for our Caro G yet. Some killer points in that last set. All in all, a very high quality match, more bang for the buck than any match at Roland Garros, well done, ladies!

Poor Donna has to be comforted by Annabel Croft in the post match interview.

Re: Nottingham F: Caroline Garcia (1) d. Donna Vekic (2) 2-6 7-6(4) 7-6(4)

Well, the one week Garcia's father isn't there to help her and she wins her first title of the year after taking two matches in one day....



Fun match, with some really aggressive hitting throughout. Donna's serve got progressively less powerful throughout, and Caroline's got better and better. Garcia's netgame and backhand have been on fire all week. She needs to come forward more!

Feel bad for Donna but it was her own shaky mentality that lost her this match (against Caro who isn't exactly the strongest in that department either). That OCC "Finals are not for me, i'm going to lose again" really tells you the full story.

Like both players, prefer Donna, but just pleased it was a good final to end a nightmare week and not one rain interruption in the near 3 hours.

So happy for Garcia This has to be a massive psychological boost after the dual disappointments of Strasbourg and Paris.

I like Donna's tennis a lot but she seems so immature
