She is on the list for next week's repeat of Lagos as well, but i'm not sure if she will actually play. On the entry list she is first under the line which means she should've played the qualies but from the results list i see that she didn't.
As a finalist of the tournament of the same category played the week before, she is automatically given a "special exempt status" (otherwise known as SE), which guarantees her a place in the main draw.
And what to say about Donna's result this week. She certainly had a great event there in Lagos but I have to admit that I am a bit bummed about the loss in the finals (go ahead, crucify me for saying it
I am very much aware that her results are great for someone her age, but with this loss her w-l record in the finals goes to a not so pretty 1-3. I would hate to see her develop that choking mentality or become a player that falls down under the pressure of winning a title after cleaning the path for the eventual champion by defeating the top seeds.
Of the current top 10, four girls have a negative ratio in the finals; Zvonareva (12-18), Stosur (3-10), Bartoli (7-9) and Petkovic (2-3) - and not one of them can be described as a mentally tough player. Of course it's early to tell and time will reveal what will become of Donna, but finals are the real chances, a time to tune in all your focus and grab a whole lot of points with just one win.
Too bad she couldn't have done better today, let's hope she'll do another nice result next week. Good luck
