Until she's had a good few weeks of hitting, she won't be near ready to compete.
Whoops! My mistake. Well that makes more sense, but I'm still fully expecting her to pull out.
I hope that if she's out for the entire clay court season she won't return for Wimbledon. That lack of match play added with the home pressure could be a real confidence blow. The general Wimbledon audience won't know/care she's been sidelined for 6 months, they'll still expect her to win the whole thing
