Dubai was February 13th
If the rankings date stays the same as last year Kaia may be able to benefit from playing in Paris (Premier). She will be safe enough for entry to Doha (56 player draw). But she stands to lose 570 points from missing Brisbane and the Australian Open which could leave her in the late 30s in rankings. That could be too low for entry to Dubai (28 Player draw) with 8 of the Top 10 playing there this year. But a good run in Paris could change that of course
