I personally think Serena was planning to come back at the Hopman Cup and play and Defend her Australian title, but I think there's two factors that changed that.
1) Serena's contract with Puma didnt end until sometime after Hopman Cup (i think) therefore her sponsorship for that tournament would've been a debate.
2) Serena shot the LAw and Order SVU episode almost at the time for Hopman Cup, so I think that's what prevented her from preparing and practicing.
Im sure Serena is physically 100% now she just needs to practice hard and come back, I hope she does that in Paris at the Open Gaz, and does not wait all the way until the Nasdaq. I also heard she might be playing the tournament in Doha.
