Linz R2: Mladenovic def. (4) Vekic 36 61 62

Well done Kiki! Nice revenge over her 2 losses this year to Donna! H2H 3-2 for Kiki now
next in the QF she'll face Alexandrova, who beat Siegemund earlier

Very happy about set 2 and set 3, it was vintage Kiki

great revenge over this player.

One of worst quality matches Donna played this season.
Mladenovic was terrible like always but started playing better and better because there was no pressure whatsoever from Donna.
In the end it was clear win which could actually do much good to Mladenovic’s confidence.
She finally played solid tennis for 2 sets, first was disaster.
Question is if she can play well when her oponent plays well too.
I think Alexandrova will be much more difficult opponent than slumping Vekic.

What was that?!?

Terrible terrible first set from both, Kiki started to play a bit better in the second and I thought Donna would raise her level as well but it never happened.

I have no idea with Donna what is the reason for this slump after that breakthrough result in US Open. Same scenario as Bencic and Qiang Wang. All of them reaching their best grand slam result in US open and now cant win back to back matches...

Donna still can't quite crack the top 20!

On the plus side, she's a near-lock for the MM YEC in Zhuhai, where she can pick up some points, and Stephens will drop below her regardless.

Still, would be nice to WIN your way into a benchmark ranking

Boring match, Mladenovic must improve her serve urgently.

Re: Linz R2: Mladenovic def. (4) Vekic 36 61 62

Donna played bad and brainless tennis after the 1st set

Why is Donna not in Top 20 as some asked ? Watch the 2nd and 3rd set. Pathetic level ...

Kristina She deserved the win. She stepped up after the 1st set and was the better player then.

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Mlad played superbly and with confidence. She looks in very good shape and hitting excellently. Donna did not know what to do at the end, was without much energy...
