She wanted to play Stanford as she had a lot of points to defend!katrientje said:I agree VS1, it definitely was a good thing she lost early, but if her entourage agreed with us, why did she play? that's my point
She played San Diego in hoping to become the world number 1 and if they was a tournament she wanted not to play was Los Angeles I think if she would have win the final of the Acura Classic, but as she lost it, she told herself, come on, you have a great chance to take that first spot in LA as I know i can beat Lindsay so she played LA!
She played toronto because the WTA asked her (Hey, Antwerp had a better draw than Toronto) to play as lots of Top-players w/o and also because Fila asked her to play (Fila is the clothes sponsor of Toronto)
That's my point of view
