Thank you! No dead rubbers on Friday

Everything is still possible, only player certain of semifinals is Justine!

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

Hopefully Justine won't tank and let Amelie beat her!

actually, even Maria isn't certain of qualification yet!!

If Kim beats Elena in straight sets
and Svetlana beats Maria (losing less than 5 games)

--> Maria not in semifinals; Kim & Svetlana qualify

Re: Thank you! No dead rubbers on Friday

If Justine tank it, Maria will face Amelie and trash her. Justine will have to face Kim or Svetlana (probably Kim as she should destroys Dementieva also ) and maybe ends up losing in semis ans losing #1.

She will try her best

Re: Thank you! No dead rubbers on Friday

the only thing certain is Nadia can pack her bags and go to the airport
I hope somebody tells her so she dosen't get her hopes up and stay around to see the outcome of these matches

Re: Thank you! No dead rubbers on Friday

if they did it the ATP had it when they had 3 matches per day, you wouldnt get any dead rubbers (well apart from the final match on the Friday could be a dead one)

Good luck in 2016 to my favs*Kuznetsova*Sharapova*Kleybanova*Vesnina*Shvedova*Kulichkova*Kasatkina*
Pavlyuchenkova*Makarova*Diatchenko*Pivovarova*Gasparyan*Leykina*Zhuk*Potapova*Pervushina*AZARENKA *Govortsova
MINELLA TsurenkoAlize Lim*El Tabakh*Robson*Cirstea

It's very very unlikely, but not impossible

Re: Thank you! No dead rubbers on Friday

Masha would need to fall down the stairs in order to miss the SF. Possible? Sure. But it is also "possible" that Martina Hingis will show up at my door wearing nothing but a ribbon saying "Take me, take me now."

So, yeah, it's going to be interesting to see how it all turns out. Sveta just ran into a freight-train today. Kim was so ON that it was ridiculous. But I think Masha will take Sveta out tomorrow. Number 19.

If Kim plays half as well tomorrow as she did today, she will be through too.

I think it's going to be Justine v. Kim, and Masha v. Martina in the SF, after tomorrow.

Guess my prediction of Elena pulling an upset and making the SF was wrong. Damn.
