It would only stop her doubters calling her "titleless"
The thing with Guangzhou last year, Laura was physically and mentally fatigued after playing so much tennis, she even said she couldn't move her arms and legs when she was leading 3-0 in the third.
The reason for her regressing in the later part of the year is the change of coaches. Krajan has been implementing things into her game earlier in the year, now Miles has come along with his own tactics. It will leave confusion as a player, she looked confused throughout the Asian swing, as she was trying to do new things but just wasn't comfortable as yet.
Off season should help a lot with fixing these issues.
She needs to start 2014 with a bang. It's vital.
Laura's not done yet, she's not even showing half of what she can do. She just needs a solid direction. She hadn't had that much at all throughout her career, various different coaches through juniors and seniors.
