Don't you think it's a bit unfair?

Justine won 2 matches, has 4-1 win/lost sets record. As a result: 1-st place in her group is guaranteed for her.
Maria also won 2 matches, has 4-0 win/lost sets record. As a result – she still may not even reach semis…

Re: Don't you think it's a bit unfair?

yeah, it's very unfair. cos justine will not be guaranteed first place in the first place.

and also....mauresmo has a 1-1 record in matches, can finish 1st place in the group if she wins over justine. aw~~~~~ WTA is just so freaking unfair!

If Amelie beats her, Amelie will be 1st.

Are you sure? I thought she won both her matches by 1.5 sets to 0.5.

Yeah, thx, but it doesn't really matter, Maria has the better win/lost rec. anyway.

If Amelie beats Justine, they'll both have the same record - with the same record and a win over Justine, how is it a travesty of justice if that makes her first in her group?

Well, at least semis is guaranteed for Justine, while for Maria is not.

No I think it's perfectly fair.

First of all - it's only a tiny theoretical Mathematical possibility that Maria won't make the semis. But come on - do you really think in practice there's the remotest possibility in practice. Too many ridiculously unlikely things have to happen. Secondly - even if the unbelievable happened and she didn't get through - I'd say that then she wouldn't then deserve to go through since she would have had to fold really badly in a one-sided 2-setter against Kuzy.

Actually I'm glad Maria is not 100% through yet and her match is before Kim vs Lena. She knows she needs to try harder than she did in her last round robin match last year to guarantee her place.
