Re: Ashleigh Barty
She will get MD WC anyway, especially to Brisbane being a local and all. No chance she will turn down a WC.
If she wins the $75k+H, her ranking will go to around 140. That would be a very small ranking jump, it gets much harder to climb rankings on ITF winnings alone. It will be very important to win some matches in January, or she will have to defend her ITF points for most of 2013 and it will be very hard to progress. But if she does win some WTA matches in January, I guess she will mostly start playing WTA events in 2013 which will be great.
If she wins 1st rounds of all 3, she will get 190 points. So it is critical for the rest of year she gets some wins in January.
