Okay. That seems to be the consensus. But is she really getting rest? Or is she working hard on grass with her coach and her team? I'd guess the latter. So I think she and her team feel that she can prepare better doing directed workouts/practice than rolling the dice on match play. They can watch film from last year, zone in on weaker spots and do some fine-tuning.
"The human mind is not capable of grasping the Universe. We are like a little child entering a huge library. The walls are covered to the ceilings with books in many different tongues. The child knows that someone must have written these books. It does not know who or how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. But the child notes a definite plan in the arrangement of the books - a mysterious order which it does not comprehend, but only dimly suspects." - Albert Einstein
