I could tell that she feels very disappointed, but I hope that she takes pride in the fact that she had the considerable courage to do this.
In a way I feel very badly for her. She's at the top of her sport genre and just wants to play harder. Hate to use a really feminine analogy, but it's like being between dress sizes ... too big for one and too small for the other ... and neither fits right.
Did she say she wasn't coming back next year? I hope not. I'd love to see her keep trying. Of course, that's easy for me to say. She said she was pretty much exhausted after two days and had given it her all.
At any rate, I have nothing but respect for her and she is a great role model for young girls (well, and for everyone!).
