Yes, but it's all about her mental strength.
An outlook at her year end ranking (Please correct me if I'm wrong):
By reaching the Captiva Island SF, Mandy has already won 32 WTA points. For the final, she would get 50 points, for a tournament victory 70. A victory would move her back into the Top 100.
If she wins Captiva Island she should be #104 in the ranking, depends on van Uytvanck winning Taipeh or not. This would be sufficient for Australian Open. But to be sure she should gain some more points in Sharm El Sheikh.
But first of all she has to play Kiick
I remember watching Kofu on stream. You could tell she lost concentration in the third when she went to serve on the other side
I think she has improved. She is very focused, mentally strong these days. Let's hope she will keep that level in the final rounds!
