When Vekic stopped making UEs on the first two balls it was game over. Vika is too slow and too weak.

At this moment, I don’t think anybody can make excuses for Vika anymore. I heard people talk about how unlucky she was with her draws, and I agree with a few of them. But her ranking has never been high since coming back, ofc she has to face a top seed early. She has to prove herself by beating them to go far in the draw and to improve her ranking. But she failed most of the time. I guess it’s time to accept that this is her level now.

4-1 in the first and 2-0 in the second :tape:

She used to be so good when ahead, why can’t Wim teach her how to get a first serve in!

Disaster :help:. The clay season was so encouraging for Vika but things have gone to shit since that Osaka match. And good luck picking up any form the next two weeks :help:.

Vika, why do you always do this to yourself <img src="https://www.tennisforum.com/images/smilies/tape.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Taped" class="inlineimg" />
What could she have done? Vekic played better. Plain and simple.

It was her 30th birthday, so I feel sad for her she lost on a day most should win.

*edit* NVMND...her birthday was the 31st. Maybe she was hung over.

Vekic is one of those players who can really peak, but this has got to start to become demoralizing for Vika. So many terrible draws, so many missed opportunities, and so many flat performances in winnable circumstances.

Donna :yeah: :D She is really starting to learn not to let bad patches of play get to her, but to continue to put the hard work in to emerge victorious. :) Great win here and hopefully she can keep this level up.

Vika :hug: Expected a lot more from her after encouraging weeks on clay and grass. You really have to wonder whether Top30 will be the ceiling or if she can ever get back to her former heights.

Conflicted, I'm happy for Donna. But for some reason, I keep expecting Vika to come back at some point, even though her results have not been encouraging so far. :crying:
