This is an interesting draw for Monica. How far she advances may depend on who she meets in the second round. She has a losing record to Ayumi (who took her out of the USO last year) and a winning record against Sorana. Obviously she hopes to meet her countrywoman.
Anyway, Monica has no points to defend until October, so she has the potential to really move up the rankings in the upcoming weeks.
