Going East for Success (February Thread)
So.. Ana is next playing Pattaya, Doha and Dubai.
She has a total of 190 points to defend in february (120 points from QF in Dubai and 70 points for 2nd round in Doha). This year Dubai is the P5 and Doha the P700.
It would be important to get some good results in these tournaments before having to defend 450 points in Indian Wells. I think its clear that having a top 12 seed makes a huge difference.. Facing Kvitova, Errani, Kerber or Na Li is tough but way better than taking on Serena, Maria, Aga or Vika before QFs. Ana is currently 100 points behind Nadia for number 12.
