I was thinking about the same. Ok, Dubai and Doha could be missed. But in my opinion Mary makes every year the same mistake. Because of her ranking she SHOULD'T miss tournaments like Indian Wells and Miami. She could be seeded there and there are many points to grab and the best players in the world are there. Mary wants to prepare to clay court season but it doesn't make sense. And Mary doesn't have good results at clay cours even if she misses the 2 Tier-1 events(last year's Amelia Island and Charleston was a disaster and Berlin and Rome-not better). So I don't understand her decisions about missing Indian Wells and Miami(btw, I love the tournaments!!!!). Mary should play there. Her ranking needs it. Now Mary is in a good shape but there are no good results coz of tough draws(Mauresmo). Good starts in Indian Wells and Miami could help her to be in Top 20 again and be seeded in Amelia Island and Charleston. Mary is in a good shape but her ranking doesn't improve. She has to play there. If not, it'll be a mistake.
