Vekic enjoyed an impressive fortnight in Melbourne, reaching the fourth round for the first time in her career and completing a box set of Grand Slam second week appearances. Down a set against Jennifer Brady, the Croatian emerged from a medical timeout with heavy strapping around her knee before ultimately bowing out to the eventual finalist.
An active member of the WTA Players' Council, the 24-year-old has been at the forefront of the tour's response to the global pandemic that canceled tournaments throughout last spring and summer.
“I’ve been talking to other players, and I think the WTA, ATP, we all need to come up with a better solution, of how we’re going to get through this year," she said after her first round win over Wang Yafan. "If we have to be in bubbles for every tournament, I can tell you players are going to go insane."
Off the court for at least the next few weeks, Vekic shared a photo on her way to rehab on Instagram.
"If everything goes well, I'll be back for the clay swing," she shared via text.
