No real benefit for her to test her fitness IMO. She's not going to be able to get extra work in in one week. If she gets a tough draw, the Eastbourne singles field is not going to give her a good preparation. And if she gets a soft draw, she can always use it to work out additional kinks.

What she needed most is confidence and the rhythm of matchplay, and I think the way she served on break points in their doubles match yesterday will give her that.
She played one match though. Did that 2hours of tennis really yield enough rhythm and match practice to go into a major?

It's not 2007 anymore when Serena could just waltz into majors half fit and be a contender. Tbh this whole comeback seems very precarious but Wimbledon will be the big indicator for sure.
