I don't know Simone but this stop/start schedule she has is frustrating and does her no favours. She is obviously in some sort of reasonable form as she beat Irvin 6-0 6-4 and had competitive matches with Dechy, Gagliardi & Jidkova - all solid top 100 players. She needs to continue to play and get in a groove. Every tournament seems to be like a comeback as she leaves such big gaps between playing. She plays for 2 or 3 weeks then disappears. She should be in europe playing the tier 4 & 5 clay events in my opinion. Come to Europe Miki!!

Is she competing on the challenger circiut at all, because I have not noticed her there. you think someone ranked around 200 would enter challengers rather then getting main draw wildcards.
