Vekić made quick work of Spaniard Parrizas Diaz Saturday afternoon in Melbourne winning 6-2, 6-2 and will now play in the 4th Round. She will play an unranked player from the Czech Republic; either Vondroušová or Fruhvirtová. Vekić has never got past the Aussie Open 4th Round and with one more win will book her ticket to the quarterfinals. She is Croatia’s last singles player left at the Australian Open.
10 wins in a row this year for Donna, well done again!
My future ex-girlfriend Donna is up shortly. Tsn in Canada will carry it I think as will espn. Hope she wins.
Ante’s figured out how to get us interested in women’s tennis 😉
She’s done very well for herself, considering she was never a high ceiling prospect (like our other female tennis players in her age range) and a lot of people would assume she would just use her looks to advance her career (like others have done).
Sure, she may have had some weird off-the-court relationships, but nobody’s perfect.
On the court, she’s been fine. We still have Martic and several other female players up there in the rankings (despite Tomljanovic defecting to Australia).
If Marcinko continues her development and continues to beat top-100 ranked tennis players (which she has been doing) we’ll have another great female player.
FYI Maminjo when Vekic was 16 years old she was being touted as the next big thing in Tennis by the Croatian media. She had some promising results as a teenager but unfortunately, she did not develop into a top-notch tennis player. Vekic like Martic are just good, if you like average tennis players. To be considered a great tennis player you need to be winning grand slams and some of the other major tennis tournaments.
At the moment Vekic is playing well and has lost some weight which helps. Her biggest problem is mobility around the court and that is why she has never been a top 10 player.
I have watched Marcinko quite a few times and she looks promising. She has won junior grand slams and has the shots. Her mobility around the court is OK but could be better. We’ll see how she transitions from junior tennis to seniors. She is 17 and is limited to a few senior tournaments a year. Next year when she turns 18, she can play on WTA tour full time.
Yeah, that’s not true at all. She was constantly talked about as the next Sharapova and the next big thing, same as Coric, never happened for either. The commentators here in Aus have been saying she’s finally performing at the age of 26. She’s now won i think 9 matches in a row (hasn’t lost yet this year) here in Australia.
She should be able to beat the Czech player. And book her spot in the AO QF she can do it!!!! Idemo!!! 🇭🇷🇭🇷🇭🇷🇭🇷
Hey @ truth. Is this hot? What do your diagnostics say from your team? Can you run it through your computer?
That’s awesome in more ways than one. Oh my!
