I am wondering if Jie might withdraw from Tokyo too
If she wants to rest anytime before the European indoor tournaments, it has to be now
However, I think Jie tends to struggle indoor for some reason, so I think Tokyo is her best chance of stocking up pts.
On a more long-term perspective, however, I just hope Jie can carry this hot form into 2009
Like, for example, win a match in AO
Because she genuinely has a great chance of making top 20 in 2009. She has about 120 pts or so to defend during the January to March period, but that's nothing, honestly. Most importantly, she didn't play any clay tournaments this year except Roland-Garros
so if she actually plays a full clay season (which is a decent surface for her) she could rack up some nice pts.
