Unfortunatelly, even with a title here, she probably can't jump more than 5 spots - soon these sorts of events won't matter at all for her ranking!
Well, I guess it matters for confidence. I think it is good she has played this one (and not Stuttgart or Marrakech because during all season so far she just has played 5 MD matches on the tour and simply do not have a lot of back to back wins (just in Miami if count Q, and in MD since last season) and she really needed some matches I guess. Also, she will probably play many WTA events in the rest of the season so I think this was good decision.
Ana Konjuh | Donna Vekic | Ajla Tomljanovic | Ana Ivanovic
She seems to play better at big events as she has played some very tight matches here against quite lowly ranked players but beat the likes of Cohen, Sirotkina, Putintseva, Hlavackova, Rybarikova, Jovanovski, Arruabarrena etc. more convincingly
