The general Wimbledon audience won't know/care she's been sidelined for 6 months, they'll still expect her to win the whole thing
I could not agree more. The backlash could ruin her. As you said the majority of the public would have no clue of her injury/lack of match play.

If she doesn't have a good set of matches under her belt before the grass then she should seriously not play. I could see her trying to tough it out by playing but it'd be a stupid decision.

It's a new art form showing people how little we care.
