Re: Olivia Rogowska
She's played around 30 tournaments this year. That's a lot. Plus she's had her best year ever. I think she can miss a couple of tournaments quite legitimately.
Besides, she'd probably have more chance of earning a WC by winning the playoff than trying to get more WTA points. Give the girl a break. It's not a dumb move at all. And really... if Liv got in direct, who's the amazingly deserving player that would get her wildcard instead??
Yeah I totally agree, I'm not upset/angry about the decision at all I was just saying that's probably why she pulled out. She's better off having a bit of a rest and recovering before the wildcard playoff. Like you say it's not like she's "robbing" anyone of a WC, apart from Barty nobody else really even deserves one based on form, so a smart move for sure. I just hope she comes out determined and firing in 2013, this is when she needs to make her move.
