...which invalidates this thread as the officials did not stop her from playing, as they--after attending to Na--did not think she was in any danger. Moreover, as you point out, she continued to play, after such a potentially dangerous accident.

There was no common sense at play from either party.

However, if the genesis of this is yet another excuse for Li Na's defeat, it is a poor excuse, as Azarenka was picking apart Li Na's game before any of the accidents.
