You are right Sveta was never in the match and did not try hard to come back.
But she could be hurt.
Little consolation for Nastya though. Same result will be recorded:
Current Defendiing Chamion loses in 1 st round.

In this these things attenuating circumstances are never recorded.

Myskina wins NOTHING (thus far) this season and goes out in the first round of her Slam. Kuznetsova wins NOTHING (thus far) this season and goes out in the first round of her Slam. Oh well, I guess

Damn. Well at least they have Fed Cup

Nastya 1st Russian woman Grand slam winner
Nastya 1st Russian woman French Open slam winner
Sveta 1st Russian woman US Open slam winner
Sharapova 1st Russian woman Wimby slam winner
...
It turns out, it is also easy to get on the dubious list w/o trying too hard.
Literally without trying hard enough

"Sign of Greatness" - MaSha win in 1st round of Wimbledon 2005!

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)
