Not a good way to start the year by any means.
Let's hope for a soft draw in the first couple of rounds at the AO so that she'll get some time to work herself into the tournament.
I'm not really worried about her not having matches under her belt, of course it would be better but she proved other times that she can get into a big tournament anyway. What I absolutely want is that she's physically fine and I hope it's true when she said she's feeling so much better.
