Don't withdraw early. Play to win the thing or don't play at all. I guess I'm old school. Tanking is not acceptable as far as I'm concerned. But I can't imagine that Maria would ever do such a thing. She has too much pride and loves/respects the game too much for that. But there's a week between Rome and the FO. I doubt that she will be tired by the time that the FO gets underway, even if she may feel a bit tired now.
