I got the news as well and I like it,thats what I was saying a year ago.
Because she is wasting money,energy and time to play at the low 10k events and didnt get results she wanted there so...
I think with focusing on doubles she will get to the place she is looking for,and if she can play at qualifying events at these high tier events,why not she can play,she has nothing to lose anyway.
But I am geting more and more surprised about the sponsorship thing,I mean it is really tough to understand,she is top player of her country and finding very hard to find money for her tournements for years
Can imagine the situation for lets say Italian,French players but they are 30th player of their country with the 400ish rankings but Ipek's story is lot different,she is leading/best player of the country yet "still" has same problems she had 2-3 years ago
Hope she can mentally erase these and hopefully she will have her career best year in 2008
