Perspective till after AO
I keep my mind positive for a number of reasons after this USO.
She has to defend 300 points for the rest of the season and I do believe she has in store to defend those or at least not losing to much to remain top32 for the AO. She lost in the 2nd round of that one last year, and by getting a seed, and with a more solid performance over the last months, I think her goal in Asia soon should be to stay FIT and not FOOD POISONED and do some damage there with a good draw. Yes, she will face seeds early, and yes, those could be her fate, but she´s one of those players that tend to do great stuff against great players and lose against nobodys at the same time.
I´d say that after 2-3 years of turmoil in a season end and a season start both, if she´s going on from here, let her get solid. She should know that her rank plummeted in spite of a round3, because Peng and Bencic made their way deeper in the tournament, but with the depth among the places 32 to 17, she belongs there and could climb something by a good tournament.
