Sure, a result in RG is not an imperative but she has built herself a sort of reputation by becoming #1 and winning pretty much every junior event in the past several months, so a lot will still be expected of her.
Anyway, the most important thing now is surely to heal the injury and the rest will work itself out hopefully.
there's, to me, really no good decision or bad decision over which tournament to play, Ana beat Radwanska in Israel and dispatched Siniakova easily early in the year, so 10K, 25K, 50K or some Junior events, whatever
as you said, her team seems to be bit over-thinking on her schedule, but that won't necessarily translate into a good tournament run as they wish
if she loses in the first round, then move on, no big deal.
with Ana's game-level we saw over the past several months, the ONLY bad decision is to play a tournament when she's not healthy
(I'm not concerned with Ana's capability to carry the No1 JUNIOR ranking atm
