My point is that she would have lost anyway so better to be it in MD.
These are pretty much my thoughts on the subject also - as she is in a bad form at least she'll get a chance for a fluke win (against a WC, a Q-er or someone who just doesn't feel good on the day) which could get her some much needed points, and still bigger than what's on offer in the qualies. Her form is such that playing qualies doesn't make a chance for a win any greater.
