She is possibly on the qualies list because Shuai Peng is the lowest ranked player in the maindraw (55) apart from Elena Bovina with a special ranking and two other low players who got in from winning some tournament or something.
I suspect she is one of the higher ranked players (and therefore would receive a high seed) in the Gold Coast qualifying draw.
