To make AO Qualies she needs to win this tournament for it to be worth the risk of going
It's a shame she didn't play some of the American 50s
This is the only 25K which will count towards AOQ cut-off
American 50k's have some good EL so I'm not sure if she would have gotten the points there. Maybe her focus wasn't to try and get to AO Q? It is an expensive trip to Australia and with her ranking I'm nog sure which other tournaments she can play before that to make it worth it. Maybe she wants to try and get to RG and Wimbledon Q. Those will fit in better in her schedule I think.
First 2 rounds are doable, Hibi is tough.
def Camila Fuentes in R1 6-2 6-4 and Barbara Bonic in R2 6-0 6-2
And Hibi it is in the QF. Nice test. Hibi has some nice results this year.
