I ve read that too in an interview with her father some time ago, although it wasn't certain then. Thats bad news, without Kim and also Courtois not playing anymore we could be in trouble, Justine would have to do very well then.
I'm a bit disappointed Kim decided not to play, I mean it's just after Wimbledon, it's not like it's in the middle of the American hardcourt season. But I respect her choise, Stanford is the week after Fed Cup, so she has lots of points to defend.
