great news! i was worried because i thought she mentioned she might not play a warmup before the Aussie, but i think this is great. its a very tough field this year though, hopfully Tati starts the season well.
She should have played in Auckland, weakest field and almost the same pts to win now that there's no bonus pts.
Lol. That was what I thought too. However, she only has one tournament left before OZ Open. So I guess it's good to face a few good players. And I guess she's kinda done playing lower tiers after the Asia tour. It didn't do any good when she played Zurich and Linz

I like this description
Great tournament IMO to begin 2006, with a pretty good field of players but not impossible to win.
This seems a good programm: playing in Gold Coast for a week to be back on the track for AO, resting before AO (please Tati don't play in Sydney!) and then AO, in form to kick butt!
