This really is a lost year for Lera. Apart from her AO run, she has not won any MD match I believe. I doubt she will go to Oz in January, maybe it is better to concentrate on ITF for now and start from the beginning again. After AO she will be ranked around 700 or so? It can only get better from there.

Good luck to all russian players
