Anett got her Miami WC because Ana didn't take hers

But in reality, it's better she doesn't play WTA The Prize Money is crap for earlier rounds and little points even if she wins a Round at an International If you are going to play WTA, better to do what Donna did and play really weak ones For example, she could have made QF or even SF in Baku IMO

It is really admirable and appropriate that she is really earning her points even though if she wanted she could jetset And we have to remember that she's just 15!! It's important for her to see her family (which she doesn't much ), go to school, have a social life... That's much easier to do if you're going to tournaments around Croatia than if you're constantly going to Uzbekistan, Brazil, Indonesia, South Africa, India, Bangladesh and Nigeria
