She's got this week off, by virtue of reach the Biarritz Doubles Final and not being able to get to the Singles Qualifying play for Bucharest on time. Next week she's slated to play in the Singles Qualifying draw Olomouc a 100K ITF tournament.
After Olomouc my guess would be she'd return to her home base. I think her ranking could get her into the qualifying draw of the CITI Open but that's be like two months in a row without a scheduled break. I'm intrigued to see when she'll shift gears from Clay to Hardcourt.
Before the Spanish Conquistadors arrived in Puerto Rico the native Arawak tribe that inhabited the island called themselves the TAINOS, the name they gave the island was BORIKEN or BORINQUEN. So a native of PR can be called BORICUA ... we have an expression BORICUA DE PURA CEPA ... roughly translates PUERTORICAN MADE OF THE "REAL STUFF" and by real stuff we mean like PR, haha.
Youd probably right? She has a high enough ranking for the us open qualifying. Shes probably taking a break. I hope I get to see her play. Im going to the first day of qualifying.
I was thinking about going to the USO Qualies this year, but my USTA 3.5 team just made it to Sectionals and that trip alone is going to drain $500 out of my money so I don't know I can do two big trips like that back-to-back months.
August doesn't really offer any ITF Hardcourt options that are realistic for Monica, nothing in North America. Weird. The first ITF near her would be the SEP 10th 25K in Redding, CA. Before that we should see her in the qualies of some of the smaller tournaments at the WTA Level.
Good point. Im going to look at some of the smaller tournaments. I downloaded the wta application on my phone, which allows me to track most of the tournaments, including the qualifying. Ill keep you updated. Alos, the qualies at the us open start on aug 21. should be fun.
