Re: Elise Mertens
All I can think is she wants to finish the year in top 10 to get some JE for 2914.
She hasn't played ITF since she won her $10k in Egypt. I expected she'd play more after that but she didn't. Playing juniors at French open and Wimbledon made sense as they were good experiences but I'm not sure why she has played these juniors since Wimbledon.
Good Luck: Belgian
