I wonder why she didn't stay in Australia and play Mildura 25k instead, it is weaker than Burnie and Launceston, she would be in MD there.
Most likely financial reasons, she can't afford staying in Australia for 2 more weeks?
Although according to the ITF site the hotel in Mildura for example is 65 EUR and in Moscow 90 EUR
And the flights to Moscow and back. Also, in Australia she would have excellent conditions for training in terms of weather.
