She needs a semi-final here to improve her ranking points. But any round win will give her points on the race ranking to Istanbul.

Would be nice to draw a qualifier here in the first round..

An excellent draw considering the field.

1R Qualifier
2R BARTOLI(6)/Peng
QF AZARENKA(1) or Goerges or Kuznetsova

Daniela's certainly capable of a quarter-final here but as I said above a semi-final is needed to get more ranking points..

It's a pretty decent draw considering the quality of the field. There are some good players in qualifying so whoever the opponent is will have to be respected. Peng hasn't been playing well this year and Daniela has a very good record against Bartoli and as I type this Bartoli has just retired in Doha so we'll see how fit she is for Dubai. The quarter-final would be against Azarenka or the winner of Kuznetsova v Goerges but Daniela has to win a couple of matches before then. She just has to focus on her first match and winning that. It's so important that she keeps her momentum going.

Daniela will have had the chance to rest and prepare so she should be in much better shape for this tournament than she was for Doha.

If Bartoli withdraws then Lisicki will become the #9 seed and replace Bartoli in the draw, making IMO Daniela's draw a lot tougher...

What if Azarenka withdraws? She was in tremendous pain after jarring her ankle. :(

Azarenka will probably withdraw and if she will play she won´t get into semis i think, Daniela can make a solid result here. GL Dani!

Halep just won her last qualifying, so potentially could be Halep 1R again...

Blech. Bad loss-surprised Aga was playing at all given how much tape is presently on her shoulder.
