I think she'll end up playing very little outside of the United States, excluding the Australian summer/Pacific rim. She's pretty much going to have to play Miami this year, unless she wants to eat a huge WTA fine, as Miami is now a hard designation. I think she skips the red clay completely, including Roland Garros; though, she might play that I guess. Depends on how much WTA is on her ass about it. I don't think she'll try to defend her title in New Haven. She doesn't like to play before slams anymore. I think after the US Open, she'll play a very light schedule.
