Well she'll probably go back home anyway rather than stay in Asia for 2+ weeks between Beijing and YEC.
^^I think there's a good chance of Dubai OR Stuttgart next year…
Also, what are the rules about Premier 5s? Does she have to play 4/5?
Rome - makes sense.
Montreal - it's not really ideal right before Cincinnati but before than frickin Wuhan.
Cincinnati - obviously.
Wuhan - I bet she'll play but I don't think she should.
For regular Premiers, I still feel that Stanford and Tokyo (if not the Premier she doesn't play the Premier 5s after) seem reasonable but it is a tough schedule.
