Wonder what her thinking was to come back to Oz to play these. Losses in the WTA are expected but its the long term benefit of being a tour player and facing some tough opponents which I thought would benefit her in the long run, not protecting her current rank.
100% agree. it is like she is not even trying ... She could have played indian wells and then come home for the ITF.
Casey qualified with another easy win 6-3 6-1 over Burnett.
Nastya lost to Larcher De Brito 2-6 3-6
Casey will play one out of: Hantuchova, Niculescu, Martic, Cornet, Parmentier, Jovanovski, Dulgheru, Morita, Craybas, Medina Garrigues, Sanchez, Domingues Lino or Arruabarrena-Vecino. Some tasty draws there actually
Sam has a R1 bye and will play either Madison Keys or Melanie Oudin
Meanwhile in the doubles draw we have Black/Rodionova, Stosur/Raymond and Date-Krumm/Dellacqua - all pretty good teams!
