i wouldn't mind her playing qualies--it's extra matches, but it won't count as an additional tournament towards her age restriction
If that's the case it wouldn't be a tragedy indeed.
P. S. I couldn't help but think these days what could've been if Donna had won Tashkent - she'd also qualify for Sofia and get an extra opportunity for pretty nice points. What a shame. Hope she wins one of these (Internationals) next year.
