Its official website says Martina will be competing Betty Barclay Cup, Hamburg, Germany this year. I hope she keeps her winning streak in Hamburg going, and picks a lot of points there by beating the new No.1 Venus Williams in the final
So, it seems Martina has decided to skip both Amelia Island and Charleston, where she played last year. She defends 282 points at Charleston and 73 at Amelia Island.
The 283 points from Dubai last year are coming off next week, so she'll have 3558 points next week. Good news is that even though Martina was semifinalist in both Indian Wells and Miami last year, she doesn't have that many points to defend as she picked up few bonus points along the way to the semifinals in each tournament. She's defending 185 points at Miami and 164 at Indian Wells.
So the point of this thread that I hope Martina wins the two tournaments which she didn't play last year, Scottsdale and Hamburg, does well to earn more points than last year at Indian Wells and Miami and gets close to getting her No.1 ranking back
before Roland Garros.
We all know she'll have her No.1 ranking back, which she deserves, by the end of this year, but sooner is better
Go Martina, good luck to you in the up-coming tournaments!
