What happens if a player forfeited a match in the Round Robin?

Say if i.e Justine Henin or Sharapova got injured or something during a match and forfeited the match but still made the Semis. Would they be forced to forfeit from the whole tournament or could they still play in the Semis if they chose to?

If someone withdrew during the Round Robin portion of the tournament, wouldn't the first alternate, Patty Schnyder in this case, take her place?

So Schnyder and Dinara Safina have no chance to play anymore. At least they got to hang out in Madrid on the Tour's dime.
