OGDF Suez Tier II

Alex SHOULD be playing Pattaya this week, IMO. Regardless, she plays Eva Hrdinova in R1.

Although, this is a fast indoor surface so this should help her game.

Which, hopefully, is a USTA Challenger.

Re: OGDF Suez Tier II

Should be a Challenger, but i'd even take Memphis. Even she wouldn't enter Dubai, right?

I seriously doubt that Julius would pay for Alex to fly all the way to Dubai for one match. She'd be much better off trying her luck in Midland, MI.

Midland, MI is this week. There are no U.S. ITFs next week, so hopefully she plays Memphis.

Re: OGDF Suez Tier II

^There's a 25k in Surprise

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Re: OGDF Suez Tier II

Oh my bad, didn't see it. Nevertheless, Alex has way too much pride to play a $25k. I can't remember the last time she played one below a $50k.

With a record like Alex's, you can't afford to have any pride.
