Of course, it's counterproductive-- she'd have a better chance of lasting longer if she took a longer recovery break, but if you're thinking it might go in the gym or on the practice court or in a match... of course she wants to play the match. It's not sound reasoning, but it's pretty typical athlete reasoning-- they are terrible judges of their own physical fitness.

Anyway, I'm with Vanessa. I'm not really upset about what she's doing, just sad that she's not even giving herself a chance. It's pretty depressing to watch, but she's an adult and she makes her own choices, and there's no point in any of us getting particularly upset about it.

Weather in Buenos Aires this time of year is actually really nice. So that's one component of her decision that's actually not totally insane. Who would have thought?
Dinarik is a lovable psycho...that's part of what draws me to her so strongly......As for your reference to the climatological appeal of Buenos Aires,I'll have the biggest cheshire cat grin in Estado Chihuahua if we see pics of JMDP gently rubbing sun lotion on Dinara while they lounge on the beach

Congrats on Number Three, Kim! We need more of you in this world
