Nina had her best year in 2012, finishing in the top 100 for the first time.
To repeat the trick for 2013, Nina needs to start out well, as she has about 60 points to defend before the AO, and 212 points to defend at the AO!
She has not ended the year convincingly, and needs to right the ship, quick!
Her Shenzhen draw:
Li v Minella
Bratchikova v Cohen
Duan v Q
Cadantu v Jovanovski
Julia is coming off a strong ending to 2012, so this could be a tough match. Nina then potentially meets Na Li.
