She has the chance to get a career high ranking with barely anything to defend till RG and she decides to skip playing tournaments leading up to a GS. I dunno what she is thinking.. well she is obviously not thinking.
Yeah, that's what I was thinking, there's so much chance in the beginning of the year. Also I don't see why she would think not playing a warm-up tournament would benefit her.
Oh well, I will wait patiently and see how she'll start into the season. Just hope it's not a decision she made just because she wants to spend more time with her boyfriend.

She might still get into Sydney as she is 3rd Alt there but she really should have thought about playing Auckland and Hobart. I thought perhaps the reason she wasn't playing Brisbane or Auckland was because she had to qualify for Sydney... but that obviously wasn't it. I'm glad she's happy in a relationship and nothing against him at all.. but at least with Igor spending more time with him still meant spending time playing tennis. Oh well fingers crossed everything goes smoothly next year. I can't handle another shitty start to the season.
Strange. This isn't like her at all. For now I just assume she is somehow guaranteed to get in, maybe a Wild Card or something. Otherwise I really don't know what to think... Can't seriously go to the AO without any matches beforehand...
She def thinks shes getting into Sydney.. but it's just silly of her to assume and not be better prepared. I spoke to her coach on twitter last month and he said Sydney was her first tournament. But I still wish she was playing the week before too.
