will she ever playing anything out of Japan or WTA?
At this stage, I don't think she's in any hurry to play overseas, and it wouldn't surprise me if she only plays in Japan this year. There really is no need to, in terms of slowly and steadily improving her ranking by simply playing Japanese Challengers...
However, who knows if she gets her ranking high enough to be play bigger events (ie. GS) next year, she may do so. She didn't travel all that much during her heyday, so I doubt she'll start now.
I wouldn't be surprised if she is awarded at least a qualifying WC into the 2 WTA tourneys in Tokyo, in September.
