No. She reached last 16 in both Athens and Beijing.
The blog you linked is a bit misleading.
It says Kei and Ai went to the same high school, but Kei was only a correspondence course student of a high school in Aomori, where Ai was a student. And Ai was often in China when she was high school age anyway. So it's not like they went to school together. This high school has a sports course and offers correspondence course to teenage athletes.
Also, it's only one middle aged woman who phoned the Japan tennis fderation to complain, as far as the report goes here.
If you don't mind seeing more papparrazzi pics, here are some more.
