Lesya is playing AO qualies now, she's Seed 1, must be a bit frustrating to be one spot away from direct MD access. Anyway, if she keeps up the game level she has displayed in the last couple of weeks, she should definitely get through. Biggest threat is probably Ormaechea, even if she seems to be in poor form. And BMS isn't a walking bye either. Goooo Lesya!

Her draw is terrible, she's still a bit unsure of her capacity of being consistent, this draw will put that into test. I think Matek-Sands, Zanevska and even Tanasugarn can be difficult. Ormaechea will be tough too but she seems in bad form so more beatable.
