I think the New Delhi WTA challenger is a great idea. The 25K is Seoul...not so much. She clearly wants AO main draw
I'd say reaching top 100 is the more likely culprit for this. AO MD can be achieved rahter easily with playing at even just two strong events (she needs about 120 points to do it, as I wrote about a few posts earlier) - to get to semis in Suzhou all she needs is one potentially tricky win, and that alone would bring her 70, while the remaining 50 wouldn't be that big of a problem in 125k. If she shows up on a 25k they're definately aiming at top 100.
