Have mixed feelings about this. While her ranking is now high enough for AO qualies, gaining points in Toyota could've helped her get into other events next year. Plus it's the same surface as Taipei...
I suspect she's that much serious about her singles career now. She's just trying to enjoy as much as a player, and she's obviously good enough to make some decent results here and there and make pretty good money, at least in doubles. So she probably wouldn't want to try that hard again risking another injury or illness. That's just my opinion though. Of course, I would hope she'd give it a go once more before she retires.
Here are some good pics from last week.
