That's very true. If Caroline on the other hand took a very long break I very much doubt that she would be able to get back into the groove like he could. So a long break sounds like a bad idea to me when it comes to Caroline. But a short-ish break to think things over, to figure out for herself what she really wants out of tennis and her life and then when she has come to a descision take the necessary steps that she thinks give her the best chance to achieving her goals is a good idea.
