Should Monica not play till the summer hardcourts?

What do you think? Do you think she should rehab her foot and come back like she did in 2001. Her foot looked 100% after that long of a rest and the only reason she didn't do well at the US Open was she overplayed in the month before it. I would actually perfer this than her going out in the 2nd rounds of RG and Wimby. I also think she needs a coach and a personal trainer (or someone that could help her manage the injury). I don't know if she has either and she should not have to do this all alone. What did Mike Sell and Monica do before the summer hardcourts in 2001? I mean she was playing so well through the 2002 Pan Pacific. Then played too much again.

I say she should rest and come back when she feels she's 100% healthy. If that happens to be by hardcourt time, then so be it. Otherwise, just make sure it's completely healed this time.

That makes sense, I should have put that as an option.

The answer is yes... she needs to heal her foot first.


Inspiration is for amateurs

She should not play until she is better.

Of course, the main priority is to stay healthy. But i personally think that whatever she'll do, she'll have pain until the end of her career
Her great come back during the Summer 2001 until Miami was fantastic, but she obviously made worse with her foot's injury by overplaying (Hopman Cup/AO/Paris/Tokyo/Doha/Dubai or the end of 2001), and she didn't really stop since, only for a few periods, but not enough. Too much pressure have been put on her foot the months before.
Right now, if she'd stop, she'd risk to lose many points and the pain would surely reappear.
It's obvious that Monica would like to finish her career with a victory, but it seems impossible. As i think the pain won't go, i believe she has to do her best to try to adjust, prevent her foot with special insoles.
Try do learn to play with the pain which would be as mend as it can be.
Imagine how sad would she be to miss the French
Remember Goran : he learnt to play with his pain and finally managed to win Wimby. The problem is that Monica isn't really happy on the court because of that injury, and on the other hand of my argue, we can be sure that she tried since almost 3 years to correct it. But unfortunately, it is worse and worse. As she admitted after Casanova's match, she knows she's on the last stage of her career.
Get as better as you can do Monica

She keeps making these aborted comebacks..when is she going to realize that she needs to take a significant amount of time off...and that means no activity...

She should stop playing until she is 100% if it is 3,6 months or all year.

She should have the foot surgery done and come back when healthy - give next years Grand Slams 'the go of her life' with 2 feet again!
