Well that excuse matters only when the coach doesn't want the player on the team. For example, if King needed to play the tie to fulfill the Olympics requirement but the coach chose WS, Mchale and Huber, she wouldn't be denied a spot because she made herself available. But do you seriously think USA would not want Serena on their team if she's making herself available?
