Yeah I heard Casey saying she won't play again for the rest of the year! This is stupid! When she is in the best form she has been in for a couple of years she has a chance to get her rank up so that she will get direct entry into Gold Coast or Auckland at the start of next year instead of having to rely on a Wildcard. 19 tournaments in a year is not enough!!
^ Not to mention that she could miss the cut for AO?
Not sure how many points she'll lose now, so she still might sneak in. But very silly decision. Go play an Asian MM or something and be done with it.
If she doesn't play she will drop back out of the top 100 by years end after all the points from the 25k's come off, however the entry list for Melbourne is 6 weeks before the tournament starts so the last few she had to defend won't matter anyway, so she will 90% make the cut off. Still silly not to play another event or 2 though.

Excuse my ignorance....
Is it kinda odd that Australia had no girls attend the US Open girls event?
Excusing Barty of course, none had rankings high enough?
Will Bains/Tomic/Hon/the rest be battling out the girls Slam events in 2013?
Or is 2014 more there year?
