The journey to make it back to the top 100 isn't worth it.

The LTA shouldn't even help her if she comeback as it would be better to give WCs to younger players.
Like who? You actually think GB has tons of promising players outside of the top 100 right now? Johanna Konta and possibly Tara Moore are the only ones who have shown they could make it on tour.

Even injured, she was still winning matches at Grand Slams. She's obviously never going to crack the top 30 or anything like that, but that doesn't mean she should retire. And if she wants a wild card to say goodbye at Wimbledon, being the British No. 1 for several years and an Olympian means she's more than worthy of it.
