Yes. If Alison wins she will be 100. But it's not as rosy as it sounds. The week afterwards Alison will drop her points for having won Equeurdreville last year. Hence she really does need to win the Taipei Open to give herself any chance of getting into the AO maindraw directly. It is possible even winning this event might still not be quite enough and if she could ask for a WC at one of the upcoming ITFs to gain a few additional points I think that would be a good move.
