She has not given up it seems . She is on the EL for St. Petersburg 25K +H in 3 weeks. Currently ranked 442 still, but almost not played for a year. Atm she #10 Alt to qualies, should have no problems getting there, maybe even MD.
Dasha is back She got a WC at 50K St-Pet qualies starting tomorrow, and actually has a really winnable match in a rather strong draw - she will face fellow WC Valentina Kulikova. Dasha hasn't played since last September, good luck tomorrow!
