If she qualifies for the main draw in Strasbourg (that would be great, she was the finalist there in 2005), then it will be definitely a good start
when? where? how? the fact that she used to be top 100 years ago doesn't mean (at all!) that she has a potential now to be there again. still, both her and linette need to take this opportunity, especially that q spots are rather weak.
