Well Done Donna, this is great for someone so young, but no offence to her, she whores her points. Bangalore, Nigeria and Nigeria again.
As proof that she is no where near that top league, she lost in straight sets first round australian open to unseeded player (i think)
No offense buddy, but this statement is just ridiculous.
Why on earth would I, as a 15 years old teen, play 25k tournaments in the US only to get destroyed in the first or second round, considering that I could rather play a 25k with a weaker field and higher chances to succeed??
At this stage of her career it's fundamental to boost her confidence, win a few matches(or tournaments) here and there and establish yourself at the higher stages of the WTA list.
It's a lot easier to do so, playing events with weaker fields.
There's a reason why Ash Barthy is playing those events at her home soil, with beatable opponents.
I'm quite certain that you would do the same and "whore" those points Donna-style of you were an up and comer.
As for her Junior results, it was quite obvious since the beginning of 2011, that she isn't really interested in spending too much time on the Junior Tour.
There are quite a few juniors, who could certainly live up the expectations. (Barty, Vekic seem to be the most talented to me at the moment)
Both are making some very smart decisions in terms of chosen tournaments.
