Debateable. If you have acknowledged her current schedule, before Indian Wells, Florianopolis is the only event which is bound to have a fairly weak field. Now is the time where she can really take advantage of the rankings and gain as much points as she can seeing as she was struggling this time last year. Whilst I think Laura is more than capable of eliminating people higher than her, going out in first/second rounds of premiers to better players at this moment in time could be disadvantageous to her confidence going into two of the biggest prem mandatories, which is why all i'm saying is that KL/Memphis would have been a good move
Hopefully, she'll fix up well for Doha and she can do some damage there.
