What grade would you give Anna thus far?
I would give Anna a solid 'B' She has been very consistent but is missing that breakthrough performance to be considered an elite player.
Players from rank 8-15 are quite close and Anna will struggle to maintain her current ranking as she has many points to defend later in the year.
Anna has to do well now to maintain her top 10 ranking and a chance to be in YEC.
