To add to the above, Lera's not had a good year on any surface, so her form is suspect-- fortunately for her she drew a player with even more suspect form. Yes, great possibility to pick up points here.
Probably there is something wrong, she withdrew yesterday from both the ITF grass tournaments in Nottingham starting next week. Qualifying list for Wimbledon not out yet, but have a feeling Lera will not play there either . Hope she will recover fast and return healthy, or whatever the issue is.

Good luck to all russian players
