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.

Birmingham isn't the week before Wimbledon.. so... I think he's talking about other tourneys with that.
