On the other hand that team championship isn't comparable to regular tournaments. The pressure isn't that large and maybe it is a good chance for Mandy to stay in practice and get some money too. So her vacation just might be interrupted a bit and she will find enough time for resting and recovery.
By the way Mandy must have completely forgotten what a loss is and how it's feeling The win over her friend Alize Lim was her 6th in a row and even in doubles she is unbeatable at the moment
I hope she can keep it up in Australia and I think somehow that she will do it. It's a question of confidence to play that level on wta either. And she gained confidence a lot!
She did get into MD of Shenzhen this year but her ranking was a little higher. Lost to #1 seed Li 64 60.
And yes, ELs should come out soon...
Seems as doesn't matter.
Auckland is a 235.000 $ event, Shenzhen 500.000 $. But last year you need a higher ranking (#92) for Auckland though compared to Shenzhen with #114. Guess it's the "close to Melbourne factor"
If we don't have any fundamental change Mandy with her #106 ranking should get into the Shenzhen draw where she also can earn more money.
Looking forward to Mandy improving on her last year result with that first round loss vs. Li. So let's hope she gets a better draw this year.
