Oh, I agree that she's sometimes played the PR game and said she's going to playing certain tournaments even when she has no intention or has serious doubts (after all, even after Cincinnati, in that press conference she said she was "planning to win lots of matches at the US Open"). If she'd just said this in an interview after being specifically asked about it, I probably would'n't've taken it as any sign. But it's the fact she brought it up in a context where she didn't need to say anything atall that gives me hope.
