I've said it elsewhere but I'll say it here too...
I was shocked but pleased with this decision. She's played a hell of a lot of tennis as of late and needs to rest a bit and also to work on serve, shots, strategy, etc.
She's really accomplished a lot this year and has paid her dues to France. If she's the ONLY player they have that can bring it home to France, that's not saying much about the rest of the team now is it? I don't understand why this is all on her shoulders.
Forget knew it was coming, she'd given him advance notice, but held off with her final decision until after the YEC so he had some time to prepare to add another member.
Now its time to focus on herself. I just think she's tired both mentally and physically and sometimes one has to put oneself first.

There's a fine line between love and hate; that line is called family!
No one does things exactly the way I want them to. No one ever has. It’s a problem they have!
