Putting aside a disappointing result in Oz it has been an encouraging start to the year considering how last season finished. I trust Mara will steadily climb up the ranks and get back to the Top 100 before the year is out.
Mara made the quarters of a $25K chalenger in Mexico. No points to defend until the French, I'm hoping a wild card in Rome qualies will be an opportunity to catch up and gain some quality points in the rankings.
