And she defeats top 150 player Monique Adamczak
Not good, however keep in mind how many matches Mon has played since last Sept after her injury at USO. In 2010 one round of qualifyng at both Sydney and AO doesn't really amount to much and I would assume she was not practicing much with her shoulder. It's a real pity because jan-Feb was a period where she could have shifted her ranking upwards with a few wins.
I think the correct mindset to take this year will be to believe that every one of our players is likely to lose every match so that way we will not continue to be disappointed. With Soph and Liv crumbling like a pack of cards in Pattaya it's not a good sign we can expect any great thing from either of them any time soon. Add in Mon's pitiful performance, Alicia and Casey getting whooped at Fed Cup, Dokic winning next to nothing for ages and we have nothing to get excited about with the exception of Sam. A-Rod has gotten her usual crappy draw in Pattaya this week.
I'm happy Liv is having a go at WTA quallies though. When Moore was in her position she played $25K after $25K, atleast Liv is trying to up her level and take the next step. There aren't any $50Ks or higher this week, or in the coming weeks, so either she played Pattaya Q or stayed in Australia and played Burnie, which she would have been critisized for anyway.
