I dont think so
she has chosen to play Rosmalen a tier 3
and according to the Wta rules
a top player can only play one tier 3 and she has chosen rosmalen

i hope she dont have any problem with the belgian officials because of the charleroi thingy last year...

kim choose not to play rosmalen to play hasselt

Well, I think that's a good decision. Get some grass preparation before Wimbledon

That's not a bad thing. She got so few points for that title anyway.

I'd rather she prepared for grass. Last year at Wimbledon, it was lack of grass experience that proved costly.

Plus we need Elena to win some BIG titles now :D

Prepering ti Wimbledon can be very good idea.

Not really a miracle she chooses not to play Hasselt. First of all because of wat happened in Charleroi and second of all, if you look at the Tour-calender you'll see that Hasselt is scheduled for the same week as the Kremlin Cup in Moscow. So there was no way she was gonna go to Hasselt anyway. :)

I read somewhere (yahoo news i think) in january that she won't play in belgium this year cause this 'charleroi thingy', so it's not a surprise for me, let's hope this helps her to acquire a great skill in grass
