Yep. Even if it fully heals it'll take some time to regain the confidence, which she took 2 full years to attain last time round. But think of it this way, with experience last time round, she may just be more adept in terms of handling expectations and fluctuations in her game.
I'm so thankful that she didn't win Gold last year though, I believe she has her sights set on Rio 2016 and retirement before that is impossible.
