Round Robin

It seems crazy that something this important, making the semis of the YEC,
comes down to sets lost or total games.

I thought Round Robin was okay, but after watching this tournament,
I think they should go back to 16 players.

Let the winners get determined on the court, not by adding up numbers.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!

Re: Round Robin

Shut up, freak. You are just pissed that Petrova got her ass kicked in this event and is on her way home.

Re: Round Robin

Nadia is 1-2.
This is a stupid system if she's out by 4-5 to 3-4.

Let the players play a regular draw.
This is a tennis tournament. Like every other one.

Roundrobin is exactly what makes masters exiting. Seeing topmatchups between players that are GUARENTEED. At the end of the year that makes this a lot of fun.

I do think they should have done better scheduling but i think we can all agree on that.

Re: Round Robin

I agree round robin is better for a Masters tournament. There is no such thing as an easy draw in round robin. Everyone has to play eachother.

Re: Round Robin

That's why IMO they should go
back to the traditional. Top 16
and one match elimination.

This RR crap can and IMO does
lead people to tanking to try and
control whom they play and when.

I agree!

Also this is great for the players as well as the fans!

Taking Hingis as an example, she hasn't played the YEC in 6 years and even though she only went 1-2 she knows more than ever that she can hang with the elite, despite the unfortunate scheduling! Plus we hadn't been able to see a Nadia/Hingis matchup yet this year, which was very exciting for me!!!

Look how confusing this is.
You need an accountant courtside to figure out the numbers

yeah ok, sometimes there are numbers to be cracked but still. It's not that hard, some people just need to look around better before posting threads lol. i prefer seeing the 8 best for at least 3 matches while 4 of them go to the semi's then only 4/16 players at least 3 matches then followed by 1 final-match(when using a 16-format). Like hingis for example, even though she lost the first match it's great she was still here so she could play such a great match against petrova. I really enjoyed watching that match. That's what makes it fun, i'm so waiting for the semifinals.

Re: Round Robin

I don't know what Sveta has to do to get in tomorrow.
She and Kim are both 1-1.
Sveta can win and not get in, or lose and get in, I don't know

if she loses sharapova will be #1 in the group and svetlana will have 1 win. So a lot will depend on kim beating dementieva. If dementieva beats kim they will all have 1 win and then sets will be counted.

right now kim = 2-2 svetlana = 2-2 if they both win all will depend on sets won then games won since svetlana, kim and maria will be in a 3-way h2h.

if they both lose they're in a 3way with elena. Sets and games will be counted again then. So pretty unpredictable untill now untill a few sets are played. Elena only has a shot if both lose and she loses not more then 3 games to kim lol.

the h2hrule has no impact here i think, godominique correct me if i'm wrong please lol. and you can be polite

Well, you do know that if she wins her chances are better than if she loses, don't you?

And you like that?
They'll be counting the games if Sharapova doesn't give full effort,
and Sveta and Kim win.
All three at 2-1.
Or like you said, there could be 3 at 1-2.

That's why there should be a regular draw.
The majors have a draw. This is the next biggest thing.
Miami and IW have normal draws.

It's only here that we count up games to eliminate a player.
