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.
If a country has the success Russia had, the players as a group are bound to make history without trying to do so.
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)
