If It Rains The Next 3 Days in DUBAI, How Should The Winner Be Decided?

Posters have said that the weather is not supposed to be good the next 3 days . So there is a distinct possibility that no more play will occur at this tournament. In this case, all the players would probably leave Dubai with QF points, just like what happened in Scottsdale a few years ago when all the players in the SF were awarded SF points and prize money.

But imagine if the winner had to be decided somehow. How should it be decided?

by the spectators' popular votes?
since there's no player from the actual hosting country... it should come down to popularity

All players would get Quarter finals points and prize money and there would be no winner, though the tourny, if players are OK could also choose to play it all on monday (if it has stopped raining)

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

Nope, this possibility exists in WTA rules (see my previous post for the rule )

BOXING MATCH

QF

SVETA def. AMELIE (this would be a close match but Sveta will use her strong thighs to move all over the ring)

FRAN def. JUSTINE, (Justine complains of being too sick to continue after Fran lands her first punch. Carlos throws in the towel)

MASHA S def. MARTINA, KO (Masha knocks out Martina easily with a blow to the forehead)

LINDS def. MASHA K, KO (Well same thing as 3rd match)

SF

FRAN def. SVETA (Sveta just doesn't have anything else to give after her exhausing match with Amelie)

LINDS def. MASHA S (this is a hard fought match but in the end LINDS gets pissed at MASHA's grunts and gets fired up)

F

LINDS def. FRAN, KO

hmmmm... maybe no limit hold'em poker?
Except each player starts off with an amount of chips representing her QF prize money, any player can quit anytime between hands but half her chips will go into the pot, a player is eliminated when she runs out of chips and so leaves the tournament empty-handed. The winner would then theoretically have 8xQF money if no one quits.
not bad, huh? Justine would be good at poker, I think, and Maria's taken lessons from Roddick. Interesting.

Uh yeah... and the other 7 losers get nothing at all is the best part

or maybe a game of monopoly... interesting to see how the players will form alliances....

or maybe a survivor-like challenge? Divide them into 2 tribes, they compete, the losing tribe has to vote someone out... repeat til there's four left, merge tribes, immunity challenges, vote, and in the end where two are left, the other 6 players get to decide.....

hmmmm the Marias would be friends and Maria S is friends with Martina and Lindsay as well... Amelie and Sveta are doubles partners.... so if Justine and Fran fail to win immunity...
Or maybe Martina will backstab and come out 2nd place (cuz in the end no one votes FOR her)...
