I have some more time now to elaborate on this topic, so here it goes: (I hope it won’t be too boring
First of all, there is no way that Kim could play Roland Garros, Eastbourne and still remain injury and pain free for Wimbledon. As we all know the biggest dream of every tennis player is to win Wimbledon, so understandably she wants to be fit and ready for it. It probably means that one of the other two tournaments has to go.
If she skipped Eastbourne then she would play Warsaw and Roland Garros on gravel (which would be very demanding on her body), she wouldn’t be able to practice on grass before RG was over( you can’t keep switching surfaces just like that) and she wouldn’t play any tournaments on grass before Wimbledon. In another words she would be totally unprepared for it.
If she decides to skip Roland Garros, she’ll practice a little on gravel, go to Warsaw and then have plenty of time to adjust to grass and be fresh for Eastbourne and Wimbledon. In this case, the big question mark will be whether she is going to use this advantage wisely. The two things she should work on are her serve and her net game. I absolutely don’t understand her fear of coming to the net, she almost always finishes the point with a nice volley when her opponent forces her to come forward. If she wants to have any chance at all in Wimbledon, she will have to do that voluntarily.
I agree with Bram that she is putting a lot of pressure on herself this way, but I think that this whole year carries a lot of pressure with itself anyway. Unfortunately Kim is not the kind of a person who thrives on it. But I always believed that it is important to try to make your dreams come true. Even if you fail, at least you know that you have tried.
As far as the rest of her season is concerned, I think it will depend on her results and her health. If things go wrong she might get fed up and lose interest completely, or she might get even more determined not to end her career that way. Who knows. I am sure of only one thing though. If she wins Wimbledon, that final will be the last match she will play.
