But seriously, that's probably what's gonna happen. Jankovic beats a fatigued / injured Caroline 2-1 and then Caroline will be kicking herself that she didn't finish off Zvonareva in two sets when she was up 6-0 5-2 with match point.

Jankovic on the other hand will be eternally grateful to Safina for awarding her two free sets by retiring at 1-1 in the first.



Of course, Radwanska could end up being the hero(ine) in this mess if she can somehow beat Azarenka.


GO RADWANSKA

I thought Caro was already in SF. Someone plz explain all the possible scenarios.
If Jelena beats Caro in 2 and Vika beats Aga in 2, so Jelena and Vika will advance?

Yes.

If Jelena beats Caro either 2-0 or 2-1 and Azarenka wins her match, then Jelena and Azarenka go through to semis.

Thank Christ you let us know.

Just now I was sitting here thinking, "Wow, I wonder what kman is going to do if Caroline loses..?", and it was just bugging me so much not knowing. Thanks so much for solving that problem.

You missed the point of this thread. This point was to point out that Jelena is one lucky DOB for getting a gift 2-0 against Safina. She should've been forced to play either Zvonareva or Radwanska so she could earn it instead!


And for the people saying Caroline is always lucky, being up 6-0, 5-2 with match point and practically winning the point but then having the call challenged by Zvonareva and the point replayed... ouch. That's gonna haunt her.


Unless!



Caroline and Radwanska are very good friends (better friends than Radwanska and Azarenka I think) so hopefully Radwanska will do her best to help Caroline through should it become relevant. Has Radwanska ever beaten Azarenka?

it would be totally unfair but yes, Caro can go out at Vika and Jelena's advantage with the latter having played only 2 games vs Safina and losing her match to Azarenka in straigth sets that's if both JJ and Vika win today .

Conchita MARTINEZ-Mary PIERCE-Lindsay DAVENPORT-Martina HINGIS-Serena WILLIAMS- and new legend Monica PUIG
Kata Srebotnik - Anabel Medina-Garrigues - Arantxa Parra-Santonja
Garbińe Muguruza- Caroline Garcia- Polona Hercog- Kimiko DK - Eleni Daniilidou ...

thanks. I'm not sure if Jelena can beat Caro but Vika will probably crush Aga. But who knows Caro is Aga's best friend so maybe she'll give her a helping hand by giving it all

Sorry, all I saw was you trying to discredit another player's achievement because it would mean that your fave would probably miss out. I wonder what gave me that impression?

I can understand what you're saying. After what caroline has shown the last days she really deserves that spot. It's really a shame the organisation has such retarded scheduling and put caro-jelena before azarenka-aga.

The same with serena-elena venus-svetlana yesterday.

Elena, thank you for all the joy you gave me, you will always remain in my mind.

I heard the commentator on ES mention this schledule during that first match yesterday.
So maybe the organisers have made this schledule at the very beginning?

How can you call playing 1-1 in games against Safina and then getting 2-0 in sets from Safina's retirement an achievement?

That's some crazy-ass luck right there. Crazy-ass luck if I ever saw it. No wonder Jelena was beaming all over when Safina retired

It's also crazy-ass luck for Caroline that the tour is in it's worst state, like, ever. So stop dissing poor JJ.
