Most likely scenario is that Kaia will retire before Rio.
Anett's injury is A) not that serious and B) should have been healed by then. What injury may ensue from playing a match or two on a soft surface would be extremely minimal. Even just play Doubles in Ties where they would win a Singles match would be helpful: just going... I mean she would be training by the time of the tie if it was supposed to heal in 12-14 days...
I think that the same applies for Kaia, just being there would be helpful...
