Day 3 updates

Nadia and Elena are both definitely out.

Justine is definitely through to the semis.

If Justine beats Amélie, Justine is top of group and Martina qualifies in 2nd place.

If Amélie beats Justine, whether it's 2 or 3 sets, Amélie is top of group and Justine drops down to 2nd place.

Maria is certain to make it through to the semis unless Svetlana can beat Maria in 2 sets. If Maria wins a set (even if she loses the match) she qualifies.

If Maria wins, she is top of the group.

If Svetlana wins, she has to hope that Elena beats Kim in order to qualify to the semis.

Basically, the semis are in Maria's and Kim's hands. If they win their matches they are through. Simple as.

Assuming Maria beats Svetlana (which looks very likely) she will be top of her group and play either Justine (if Amélie beats Justine) or Martina (if Justine beats Amélie.)

Assuming Kim beats Elena (which looks very likely) she will be 2nd in her group and play either Justine (if Justine beats Amélie) or Amélie (if Amélie beats Justine).

Re: Day 3 updates

Technically Elena is not out.
If Maria beats Svetlana in straights and Elena beats Kim (losing less than 4 games), Elena qualifies

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.

Re: Day 3 updates

In that case...I repeat... Elena is definitely out

Re: Day 3 updates

So if Amelie beats Justine even in 3 sets, will Amelie be first in the Yellow Group?
Well, if so, I do think JuJu certainly wants to beat Amelie, just to be sure to meet Maria (likely first place in her group) only in the final.

is JHH beats momo, momo is last in the group

Re: Day 3 updates

Amelie loses to Justine in the first match on Friday, so Sharapova has all the needed information to decide how she will lose to Sveta
