Paris [indoors] 2014

Am I right when I say that in order to improve her points after this tournament she has to reach minimum in the final?

I mean until Indian Wells she has to exceed 280 points to add smth to what she has. Right?

Yes, you're right. But even if the point's are not useful in the near future, they may be useful later and for the Road to Singapore.

Re: Paris [indoors] 2014

Simona needs to take as much points as she can until Rome, since i don`t think she`s capable to defend all those points from her late 2013 tournaments, and definitely will not be playing those MM tournaments again.

LE: Good news for us who live in Romania, the tournament will be broadcast live by digisport. I just hope she`ll be ready and fit considering the travel she have to make from Australia to France via Romania.

Re: Paris [indoors] 2014

Yes, she has to defend 900 points in MM tournaments not counting the 375 points from Sofia, and that`s a lot, but, I might be wrong here, now that she`s top 10 I don`t think she will be allowed to attend as much MM`s like she did last year. Maybe someone who`s better informed than me about WTA rules should clarify that

She was no.11 at the beginning of the year so the rule doesn't apply this year.

What rule is that about? 6 MM tournaments a year it's not so much. I mean the GS (4), PM (4) & P5 (2) make it 10. But anyway Simona has in her ranks only 3 (Budapest, Hertogenbosch, Nuernberg). Anyway that's not incredibly much, a final in a P5 and one in P12 (both easily affordable imo) would compensate. About Moscow and New Haven let's only consider the PMs where she only has 140 points. I think half of the points from the 2 tournaments will be easily compensated in the 4 PMs. So... i do not think as somebody above said that the points in paris would be very helpful in the future. Only a title would really count I really hope that the new coach will make her pass dubai

When you finisg the year in Top 10 you are allowed to play in only maximum 2 MM.
That 4 PM would be a bonus. Beside that 10 tournaments you mentioned there are 6 other MMs or Premiers that count. So the points from Paris are helpful, but not immediately.

Re: Paris [indoors] 2014

1st round
Simona Halep - Kristina Mladenovic

Have anybody see Mladenovic playing? Does she has any specific qualities?

Mladenovic plays the mixed doubles final tomorrow morning at Australian Open. She will be a kind of zombie in Paris.

Re: Paris [indoors] 2014

I think she should withdraw and spend the week getting to know her new coach.
Chasing points is never a good idea. It didn't help Wozniacki or Jankovic in the long run, just the opposite.

Serena is untouchable.!!! Halep is getting there.

Dude , you already said it a lot of times. Now that the draw is made, she will not withdraw.

P.s : I don't think opening a thread for each tournament is a good idea.
