she needs to gain points as much as he could before US open, because she will ose lots of points if she couldn't defend her Shanghai and Pattaya points from last year. but the 1st quarter isn't over yet. she still has a lot of time to gain points!!
IMO, Angie needs to spend about a year living in Florida. She made a quick jump from the ITF to the WTA, but only won in Asia. No offense to my Ozzie friends, but the depth of coaching and competition isn't the same there and the plane trip home is too short and tempting. She needs a tournament win (or @ least a couple of RU's) somewhere outside of her "neighborhood" this year. And a challenging timetable like to pass the other Asians ala Ai and Tammy and make the Top 20 by the end of '04.
