She doesn't have Djokovic's grass experience, so skipping all preparation tournaments may seem risky. On the other hand, these prep tournaments don't exactly duplicate Wimbledon's grass... which also evolves during these two weeks.
Beware of the early rounds floaters, there are always a few players able to upset a top seed. Djokovic can do that since it's also best-of-5 for him... Iga isn't in this position.

True

1GA should play Birmingham or Eastbourne. Just to find her marks on grass.
Although I don't think there is so many dangerous floaters for 1GA. You think Yastremska, Kostyuk , Brengle are threats ? Not at all.
Having Andreescu in the R1 can be tricky, but I think 1GA still easily dispatch her. Andreescu is no more the player she was at 2019 and her game doesn't work at all on grass

And people forget that 1GA was very convincing in the first three rounds at Wimbledon last year, even if it was weak opponents. And still took the first set against Jabeur...
Like last year, Jabeur is maybe the only complete player who is able to beat 1GA, and Ostapenko because of her ultra-agressive game.

But as we saw with the FO, they have as much chance of flopping as of meeting 1GA

I have a feeling she will skip the warm ups and go straight into Wimbledon. Her participation in Warsaw may depend on how deep she goes at Wimbledon. If she loses in the first week of Wimbledon she will play Warsaw.

These are complete guesses on my part.

It will be a funny MM tournament. Which player want to go there from the top 30 to get double bagel 🥯🥯 in the final on clay? There wil be the No1 and the others? :D
Well, Prisacariu has gone 9-3 since her double bagel, and Lys has reached two QFs at the 100/125 level since getting pummeled in Stuttgart. Sometimes just sharing the court with a future legend, however briefly, can be enough to light a bit of a fire. :)

Lys definitely must go to Warsaw. I will watch her every match. And the result doesn't really matter. :)
