It was silly of her to play today, I have some serious questions for her team if they thought she'd be okay to go out there like that.
Well it's not like an injury where playing will make it that much worse. Yes, the grind of full practice sessions and long matches all while on meds would cause problems, but today she clearly wasn't pushing herself that hard. As long as she rests between now and Beijing, as well as after Beijing, it should be fine. Vika is definitely aware of the risks of pushing her health, as we've seen with all the injury withdrawals.
