Can't say for sure but I seriously doubt it.

She should have stuck with $80Ks

She has indeed. Her first ever WTA MD.

Wonder what she plans after that. She could potentially make Wuhan qualies since there is 3 WTA's next week and ITF has 100+H and 80k in Nort America, 100k in Russia and 60k+H in France. So some players will not make it to Wuhan due to singles, doubles and ITF. She is not makig Bejing Q draw for sure. Lucic did not get in one year when she was top 100.

After that? Who knows? Asia will have many strong challengers in November, might be smart to play that.

She is not in qualies draw, but not sure if she made it or can not play because she is in 25k SF this week.

If it turns out she traveled to China just for 25k it will be very bad decision since she could have easily played bigger challengers in Europe, even on clay.

Looks like she made it into the MD. Top Q seed is Cabrera, who is ranked below Pera.

I've never understood when players take a good chunk of time off immediately after a breakthrough. You'd think they would want to play as much as possible as soon as possible to milk their good form That's what I would do

Let's see if he's in the MD draw tomorrow at next week's Serbia $15K.

Since writing this a week ago, Nino won another $15K, and next week he's in the MD for Banja Luka Challenger

Until a month ago, he hadn't won any pro singles titles -- and now he has three

Probably not, but never say never.
