But she probably should have made that decision right away instead of waiting until the last minute.
Agree with her decision, playing would have achieved nothing. No chance of winning the tournament and very real possibility of aggravating the injury. For that reason i think she might have withdrawn sooner. Not that i mind much, she's not the only player who withdraws very late from tournaments sometimes.
