Camila Giorgi vs Donna Vekić: Preview
Croatian tennis player Donna Vekić has looked in good form this season. She went past Francesca Jones in the first round of the Viking Open 2021 without much hassle. Securing 85% win on the first serve, the star player made it very difficult for Jones to even think about making a comeback.
Moreover, Jones did a lot of double faults which added insult to injury and she was eventually thrashed in straight sets by the third-seeded Donna by 6-1, 6-3. Donna was knocked out in the very first round of the French Open 2021 by Karolína Plíšková in straight sets.
Although Donna did give a tough competition to the Czech tennis star but she failed to get over the line at crucial instances. She is desperately looking to make a strong comeback and Camila Giorgi would have to be at her best to stop Donna from moving into the third-round of the tournament.
Camila has also had a fantastic start to her Viking Open campaign. She completely dominated the proceedings in her first-round clash against Giulia Gatto-Monticone winning the contests in straight sets. She even bageled her opponent in the second set eventually winning the match by 6-3, 6-0.

Camila Giorgi vs Donna Vekić: Prediction
While there is no doubt the fact that Donna Vekić will have an advantage going into the game, Camilo Giorgi cannot be counted out of the game as she has been in great touch recently. She absolutely thrashed her opponent in the last game. However, winning against the third-seeded player will not be that easy for her.
This sure promises to be a nail-biting clash as both the player made very few mistakes in their last games. However, the odds are in favor of Donna Vekić.
Prediction: Donna Vekić to win in three sets.
