I cant believe that she is skipping Birmingham!! She's played some of her best tennis there in the passed taking out some big scalps like Testud and Raymond. I thought it was a good chance for some points and a seeding chance!
I hope she asks for a last minute wildcard! She's already had a week off at the French open!
Would reckon Nicole would do ok there . . . while its a top field she is capable of beating over half the field in the MD
Considering how well she has done in the past, a WC might be a possibility
