It's up to her. If she decides she cares about tennis/her career/her future and starts playing with passion... she will easily be able to climb back into at least the Top 20.
If she doesn't care, then we might see a retirement.

I'm not sure it will be that easy. Nicole was #7 because she had lots of power. But now, you see lots of girls who can hit like Nicole, even lower ranked (Hradecka, Kvitova, Kleybanova ...). And her movement is so bad, it is hardly top 50. She should (and I think she will) go back to ITF tournaments. Maybe there, she can rebuild her game...
