I agree with you. I fell and hit the back of my head like that a few years ago, blacked out, suffered a concussion and was out of it (not knowing where I was) for approximately 20-40 minutes afterwards.

There was a doctor on the court who checked her for signs of a concussion, but you are right blacking out is a definite sign of a concussion and the match should have been stopped.
