I guess but she's going to play every premier event in January, and then probably doesn't want to go to the Middle East for 2 weeks where she'd probably come back to South America or USA so maybe she rather play in the Americas for a couple of weeks.

Oh yes. Watson beat also Chanelle after beating Mandy. And now Gajdosova too. Mandy had a good scoreline against Watson. I still wonder what has happened with her before choking. I hate that vocabulary so much because it puts Mandy into a corner she doesn't belong in my opinion!
I guess Mandy had the best chance to beat Watson of all three quali contenders. Imagine if she would have won 3&1. This must not be utopian. She was quite close to that! If there was no injury it was a question of mentality for sure. She suddenly lost her confidence and she has to work on it not to cramp or to get blockaded. I guess she was scared of herself after wasting her set points in the second set.
She has to be aware about that she could easily win a match even against a strong Watson if she just let it be. If she realises that she she will significantly step forward!
