The british ones are normally quite tough but hopefully most are in America. She should be the equivalent of seeded for qualifying. I think that she will definately win rabat if she plays well (she says she played badly in Tallinn which makes sense given her results but in the hihlights she was playing well) and Bath and quarters or semi showing could be nice. Chiasso will be a challenge but if she plays like in Fed Cup, she is as good as a top 100 player. I hope she plays Bastad as it is on clay, it is a weak field and she should have learnt from Timea Babos that if you have confidence, you can go a long way
So the list is out, seems quite tough. Anett would even be nowhere near the qualifying cut, more like alternative no 100. The last main draw spot is 214 (compared to 288 in Moscow for example) and for qualifying 286 (vs 403). Of course this list is not final, but looking at the priorities, there will probably be a number of withdrawals from Moscow, but likely not so many from Bath.
Anyway, let's hope Anett won't have the worst draw and can get at least some wins
But you have to remember that some fo the good players will drop out because their are other good players. E.g. Nastassya Burnett. A 50k winner and a girl who beat Hradecka isnt going to play 25s if theres a risk shell lose 1st round
I am not definately quitting though, I am simply considering it. I will probably not start any more threads (except in Baltic Breeze) and also not do fed cup anymore but only follow my favourite players threads
