After this week, she does't really have big points to defend until Vienna (another month from now) and then not until a month later at San Diego. And then her next set of big points came in October during the carpet season (Linz, Zurich, LA, and Filderstadt). Madrid and Rome also are on her list, but they're the last two things on her ranking right now. So, after this week, she'll have a chance to gain some more points, if she plays.
