Gold coast could be great as she would be able to take some ranking points, but as Hong-Kong is a round-robin format (I think), then she would be assured to play at least three matches...

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

hmm maybe, but if she ever managed to win one of these, it would be so great for her self-confidence

It is Catch 22 situation here

If she goes to Hong Kong she is guranteed at least three matches due to the Round Robion format; however Gold Coast offers her her first ranking points and then she will be ranked after the Australian Open (if she plays Canberra). I would say go to Hong Kong and gurantee matches and gain form.

She wouldn't need to play canberra, she should get 1 point for last year's Pattaya, so with G.C., AO and pattaya she would have three tournaments

I say, go to HongKong.

Rankings points are absolutely NOT important at this stage.

Having three matches against the worlds best players at the moment, is a good way to see where you stand.
