Smart move by Julie who is playing in Asia instead of defending her points in indoor european tournaments (1 50k win, 2x50k SF and 1 100k final last year), Julie has already lost her points from Joué les Tours and improved her best result today by reaching the final in Tokyo (100k +H = more points than 100k Poitiers)where she'll meet Olga Savchuk tomorrow
She'll also play in Osaka next week (1st round against Vania King, a player she defeated in the Bronx QF)
Her japanese run assures Julie to finish in the top 100 for the second consecutive year and I'm sure her position will be better than her previous y.e.r. of #96. If she could carry on like that, she wouldn't have to play the qualies in Brisbane, Auckland or Hobart.
congrats for winning Tokyo!
Unfortunately,in Osaka she lost in 1R to King 26 63 64
Yes, but she's still in the tournament in doubles with Mathilde Johansson, 2nd WTA SF this year after Estoril, taking revenge on King (partnering Mirza, a great pairing) with a good opportunity to make it to the final as they are playing Scheepers/Spears.
I think Julie will go back to Europe after that as she's going to play a 100k in Ortisei or Poitiers.
