Breaking News: WTA Tour too dumb to understand their own system

http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/3...?ContentID=987

"If Mauresmo loses, she will finish fourth in the Yellow Group and give Hingis the right to play in the semis. If Mauresmo beats Henin-Hardenne in straight sets, she'll finish No.1 in the group, but if the Frenchwoman needs three sets, Henin-Hardenne is first."



I guess they've been reading WTAWorld threads.

Re: Breaking News: WTA Tour too dumb to understand their own system

Does this really count as Breaking News tho?
Didn't we all know it for a while?

I mean, is anyone actually surprised that they got it wrong?

Re: Breaking News: WTA Tour too dumb to understand their own system

The only reason this system exists is because the WTA, ATP, and ITF
have chased away all the fans and media.

If members of the sports media tried to explain this system to fans,
they would be ripping it nonstop. Because it's impossible to explain the possibilities.

This is a stupid, incomprehensible system.

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

Re: Breaking News: WTA Tour too dumb to understand their own system

This is incredibly stupid.
Nadia beat Mauresmo, lost to Justine and Hingis.
Hingis lost to Justine and Amelie and beat Nadia.

How does that determine who's in and who's out?

Play a regular draw.

Re: Breaking News: WTA Tour too dumb to understand their own system

Nadia beat Mauresmo in 2 sets.
What she did is equivalent to what Hingis did.

This system is pathetic.

And it's only around because tennis is totally out of mainstream sports now.

It's a little cult sport that goes unnoticed, even when deciding champions.

It's lost you dumb fuck


And, just to make a point, there is a chance that you guys are wrong about the system. In both '03 and '04 the set % was used to determine who moved on, and in '05 they used H2H. There is a chance that they tried it for one year then decided to switch back. I mean, do you have the actual written rule??? I understand why you're insisting it's H2H, but isn't there a chance you're wrong?

I used to list my favorite tennis players here...
...then they all retired.
I used to keep track of my rankings in fantasy games here...
...then I realized how much I suck.
I used to update this signature, once in a while...
...then I realized no one actually reads it.
