If Ana really reach in February FED CUP next round and Dubai QF like I predict, we should not to be unhappy with that, despite some ugly early loses at MM-Pattaya and P5-Doha.
For something bigger, we just need to wait next month March and Indian Wells. If she stay injury-free, and with day for recovery between matches, we will see in California what is real level of Ana's current game.
But WHY sign up for this if she isn't up for it? WHY? If she isn't able to perform, then just don't sign up. As it is, it IS VERY unprofessional behavior. If you are on court, you are able to perform, then you are professionally obligated to TRY your best. Anything else IS completely unprofessional.

If you aren't up for it, then just don't play.

Mental Strength is an underrated ability, it sets champions apart

Making mistakes is human, repeating them is dumb.

What I write is my opinion, and my opinion only.
