Yeah, I don't think this MD placement will do her much good, except maybe from the financial standpoint. She might very well play a seed or even an in-form unseeded player, and we all know what could happen then. As one of the top seeds of the qualies she could've at least picked up 40 points rather easily. Oh well, good luck with the draw.
I am not surprised, her team has seemed to me to be the ones to blame for a lot of her trouble lately. She is too good to be with such a shitty team. Her coach coming on TF and fighting with her fans instead of coaching was just the first sign that something was majorly wrong there. I really hope she can find a better team to work with. She is still pretty young, and there is time to achieve her potential. But it is very important to be surrounded with quality people. Hopefully this will serve as a wake up call to shake things up.
