Gold coast could be great as she would be able to take some ranking points, but as Hong-Kong is a round-robin format (I think), then she would be assured to play at least three matches...

I want to go to HK exo :banghead:

Although I'm not sure she'd want to play agaisnt Williams, Clijsters, Davenport in her first few matches...

hmm maybe, but if she ever managed to win one of these, it would be so great for her self-confidence :p

It is Catch 22 situation here

If she goes to Hong Kong she is guranteed at least three matches due to the Round Robion format; however Gold Coast offers her her first ranking points and then she will be ranked after the Australian Open (if she plays Canberra). I would say go to Hong Kong and gurantee matches and gain form.

She wouldn't need to play canberra, she should get 1 point for last year's Pattaya, so with G.C., AO and pattaya she would have three tournaments

I say, go to HongKong.

Rankings points are absolutely NOT important at this stage.

Having three matches against the worlds best players at the moment, is a good way to see where you stand.

The HK organisers will surely change the format of the exhibition to add Martina.

I think she should play Gold Coast and maybe Sydney. That solves the catch 22. That way, she's guaranteed to play at least two matches. If somehow she wins Gold Coast, then she can decide to not play Sydney to rest for the AO. But if she loses in Gold Coast, she'll at least get another match. Also, she'll play a better mix of players. I don't like the idea of her first matches being against top 10 players. She should work up to that.

If Martina come here, I promise I give up all my study and go to watch, scream at top of my lung for every point, game and set and match she wins!

I agree that Martina should play Gold Coast and Sydney.

It is unlikely that she'll do that well in her first few tournaments due to lack of match practice, so I don't see the point in her getting her ass-whooped in 3 matches by the top players at Hong Kong and totally demoralising her confidence.

I think it's much better if she can get a couple of matches in at the Gold Coast maybe with a win against someone in the top 100, then going to Sydney and getting another match or two in (maybe with another win). That way she has at least 2 matches before the Aus Open - possibly about 5 or so, and she's eased her way into it, and the chances of her winning a match and building her confidence are greater.

Plus, i really wanna see Martina at Sydney ;) So I can watch her live :p
