Yeah originally I just wanted 1 good result post USO to end the season and maybe get seeded...she got 3 and looks pretty set for a seeding given she defends nothing in the first week of the year.
I thought the Luxembourg surface didnt suit her tbh and in the first round you could tell she wasn't quite there mentally like she had been in the weeks prior...just a little sloppy. Plus her coach wasn't there either so it was just obvious to me it wouldn't go that well. I dont think we can be disappointed, Pavs passed her in the rankings but she's still 29, which is 28 with Bartoli gone so considering it could have been out of the top 50 a few weeks ago, it's been great.
Like you said though, it did top off what was kind of a blah year except the last 3 tournaments
