Also, does she have to enter the main draw of slams so that they wouldn't count towards her used appearances. Anyone knows what's the deal with WC's in that regard?
She gets Merited Increased for entry into MD or QD of up to 4 PMs or Grand Slams
It's so the WTA can justify having Age Eligibility if someone Donna's age was Top 10 and needed to play these tournaments
I thnk Donna needs to make MD for RG as I don't think she'd qualify on Clay but Wimbledon she doesn't need to be as highly ranked which is good
Also, cut-off is 6 weeks prior to each tournaments so many of her points don't come off until after that, and all of them are 25Ks which pushes them back yet another week. BTW, why do they make these points come on later
BTW, her seeding in Pune has gone down to at least 8 as Petkovic took a WC
