Why is Keothavong playing Rosmalen and not Eastbourne?

I noticed that Keothavong is playing 's-hergotenbosch (Rosmalen) and not Eastbourne. Is this because she felt like she had a better shot of getting more points at Rosmalen or is it a snub against the LTA?

Because she hates grass, and wanted to be in a tournament with other people who hate grass.

because Anne is even worse on grass than she is on clay, and was hoping to draw Alexis Gordon. Unfortunately she got Errani who is utterly useless but not totally abysmal and therefore she lost

Anne probably would have been refused a WC into Eastbourne had she not taken up that feedup into Rosmalen.
