Well I find Fed Cup a lot more interesting than the never-ending stream of MMs but still think this was the right choice.
Hopefully she can get totally pain free before IW. Does she defend any points before that? (Shouldn't really matter, she's in that band of players who are guaranteed MMs but can't quite get into the small Premiers...)
i defeated the mountains
i severed the oceans
i was the stronger of us
yet the weakest one still
Such a shame she had to retire, but it was a great week for her. Beating Paszek, Cibulkova and Safarova with a back injury Now take some rest and take your time to recover from that back injury. Maybe she should WD from Acapulco. I mean, it's just 1 clay event and after that going to the HC in IW/Miami. And she would have an extra week to recover. She allready defended all her points until the end of April I think (her WTA win in Fes).
Will be tough for the FedCup team, but Aran could use a few matches. And good for Bibi as well to have some matches coming back from her ankle injury.
