Svetlana - stupid or heroic?

Svetlana is barely walking out there. She collapses on the ground between the games. A couple of time she looked as if she was going to faint.
And yet she's fighting like a demon and even doing splits Quite amazing actually. But is it really worth it?

Sveta lost 6-7, 6-7.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

It looked like it got better towards the end, so perhaps she knew what she was doing.

I've always thought the Russians played far too much but it's getting to the stage where if they don't play there would be no top ten players in the tournements. She's stupid for playing when she's almost dying. But also heroic because atleast she cares enough to play.

I'll be reckless and say,well done! We don't see enough players giving their all these days. They pull out of a tournament if they're having a bad hair day.

It's nice to hear of a player who stays out there and fights!
