Hope she can have a good start next year. Shenzhen is the new international tournament. Maybe she can have a try. More Chinese know Donna now and they also think she will not follow DelBrito's route... She went to Suzhou before, hope she can come to China again and achieve good results... Of course, my biggest wish is that she can come to China Open. If so, I can support her in the court!!! But she is only 16. Step by step. Come on!
Going through the 2013 calendar, I'm noticing several weeks which could be good for Donna to play WTA's...
- Dec. 31st three Internationals (Brisbane/Auckland/Szenhen)
- Feb. 18th one Premier and two Internationals (Dubai/Bogota/Memphis)
- Feb. 25th three Internationals (Acapulco/Kuala Lumpur/Florianopolis)
- Apr. 1st Premier in Charleston (56 draw) and International in Monterrey
I've marked in bold those that I'd probably opt for in her place, cause are all rather close (except the first one...) and all are on hardcourts. Of course, there are also slams and qualies of big premier events where she'll probably show up.
I started my holidays in Dubai. After long season my body and mind needs big rest. Believe me I will. In mean time my team will prepare for you DV 2012 review per months. Be aware, at the end comes competition question for big prize, my DV racquet 2012!!! And many news to come!
Almost top 100, but still 16 and with a limited number of tournaments left. I don't think playing one or two more junior slams would be bad. She played a lot lately and I have no clue how many tournaments are left in the tank for Donna until her birthday (I guess not that many), so some junior matches would keep her into the competition mood.
Donna wil most likely play all slams next year which will be great In fact, she has to play all slams after the Australian open, presuming she doesn't go down the rankings I wonder if she will keep playing 25K level or move on???
