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??
Yes but she reportedly said that she wanted to get in directly to the main draw. If she is injured/tired and want to rest that is her right.
