That damn second-round AO loss to Hypeson really hurt her ranking points. Due to her 'consistent' showings during the slams last year, she won't really be able to compensate her ranking till the late part of the season. The only time she might do it is during the YEC or during the Asian swing. I really hope she can qualify for the YEC and hopefully resurge back to the Top 5 at the end of the year.
