Q starts tomorrow :bounce:

hopefully Nicole will find her hardcourts form at least from IW/Miami, I think she could really do well on hardcourts this year and earn a lot of pts as she has almost nothing to defend for a whole year.. I hope her comeback starts on hardcourts, it looked promising in March during IW/Miami :)

Anyways, here is her Quali section

In case you are wondering,

:o :sobbing: omg this is why I don't believe struggling players should try to drop down to lower level tournaments to recover their form. Qualifying is not that different from an ITF.

Because their opponents are not beating them, they are losing the matches themselves, so it doesn't matter that much if the opponent isn't that good. And if you are having mental problems then the added pressure of being favourite doesn't help. I mean, maybe Stacey will be a good player one day, but just a couple of weeks ago she lost 0 and 2 to Mashona Washington. So clearly she is not a world beater yet.

Nicole you are just :weirdo: :smash: :help: right now.
