Your post makes a lot of sense, actually. I always forget how young she really is. Maybe she should take the rest of the year off and come back, recharged on life, in 2014.
Caro is almost 23 (2 months short of it), which isn't that young in tennis. A tennis player's prime tends to last until their late 20s.
I think Caro taking the rest of the year would be too long. She would lose too much rhythm and it would take some time before she got used to the grind of the tour again. Plus she would be in danger of falling out of seeding for the slams.
There was a time when this whole quadrant belonged to us! What are we now? Twelve worlds and a thousand monuments to past glories. Living off memories and stories, and selling trinkets. My god, man! We've become a tourist attraction. "See the great Centauri Republic - open 9 to 5 - Earth time."
