July 7, 2024 – Donna Vekić has reached the Wimbledon quarterfinals after beating Spanish tennis player Paola Badosa (6:2, 1:6, 6:4).

This is Vekić’s first Wimbledon quarterfinal and third overall at Grand Slam tournaments (Australian Open 2023, US Open 2019).

The dramatic match was interrupted three times due to the rain, and in the crucial set, Vekić showed her will and achieved a spot among the top eight.

Vekić routinely took the first set, while Badosa was convincing in the second. The Croatian tennis player had a better start to the decisive part and took a 2:0 advantage with a break. When she needed to confirm that advantage, Donna gifted three points to her opponent with two unforced errors, and Badosa quickly returned to the game.

The third set was by far the most equal, but Vekić did not give up her attacking game. She took another break and brought the match to an end.

In the quarterfinals, Vekić will play against the winner of the match between Lulu Sun (WTA – 123rd) and Emma Raducana (WTA – 135th).
