To answer all Kim vs. Lena questions...

If Dementieva def. Clijsters 6-3, 6-0, their games scores would be:
Clijsters: 23-26: 46.9%
Dementieva: 25-28: 47.1%
Kuznetsova: 20-32: 38.4%

As soon as Clijsters gets 4 games, her % is above 47.1 (which is what elena's will be if she wins this match)

So, Clijsters has to win 1 more... now 0 more matches to advance to the semis.


The only way for Kim not to make it now is for her to retire, in which case Kuznetsova would move into the semis

How should you be? You should be like a rocky promontory against which the restless surf continuously pounds.
It stands fast while the churning sea is lulled to sleep at its feet. I hear you say,
"How unlucky that this should happen to me."
But not at all.
Perhaps say instead how lucky I am that I am not broken by what has happened,
and I am not afraid of what is about to happen.
