She will want to play as soon as possible, especially since there is a lot in store for her for the rest of the year.

The American star has not yet revealed her plans for the rest of the season. However, she will definitely want to play soon as she has a chance to qualify for the WTA Finals that is scheduled for November.
She is currently the world No. 9 and she just needs 260 more points to make it to the top 8. Moreover, the new ranking system is working in her favor as she cannot drop any points.
