That could be convincing scenario. Although do they want Pogorilaya and Sotnikova to battle either? Seems in their best interests to spread their top ladies out as much as possible. Still, it would make sense for them to invite Sotnikova to CoR in my view... she may be seen as needing protection after all the drama, plus, Yulia will be the #1 seed and have her pick of events other than SA or CoR (assuming Gracie's seeded at #3 and SA picks her, and Anna's seeded at #2 and CoR picks her). Problem is, between those three ladies and Radionova, they have four women very capable of making it to the GPF. They can't keep all of them away from another completely!
