Exclamation Today Is Elimination Day For Myskina or Sugiyama

Whoever loses in their match tonight will go down 0-2 and will not have a chance to reach the semifinals of the YEC. Anastasia deserves to be eliminated after leading 5-0 in the first set of her match against Justine last night and losing the set 7-5, but if she can push Justine like that, regardless of how sick Justine was, she may be able to beat Ai, though it might take three sets to do so.

Wrong, my dear. Both players still have a chance even if they lose today, although Ai needs at least a set.

I think it would be great if Ai and Myskina can make an upset!

I don't think so, my dear. Even with a set, there is little chance of someoen who is 0-2 to come back from that defecit considering Anastasia plays Jennifer next and Ai plays Justine and both will probably lose. But we shall see.

But a chance nonetheless
and that's the point.

First post, lizchris writes, "...and will not have a chance"
Second post, lizchris writes, "...there is little chance"

Make up your mind, OK ???

And if you think that both will lose their 3rd match, then this match is meaningless anyway.

I was responding to your post, where you said that one of them will have a chance. I still stand by orginal post that one of them is going to be eliminated tonight.

So post the stupid rolleyes all you want.

Just because tonight's loser is likely to be out and not to reach the semis you can't claim that it's guaranteed.
And even if tonight's loser WILL be out, you have still been talking nonsense.
Hmmm, haven't we had a similar discussion just recently ?

Same question, different thread

I posted this question in another thread... Maybe someone could read this & let me know if this is feasible:


Given the following in the Black Group:
Capriati Beat Sugiyama 2 sets to 0
Henin Beat Myskina 2 sets to 1

And Given the following hypothetical for the rest of the games:
Capriati Beats Henin 2 sets to 0
Capriati Beats Myskina 2 sets to 0
Myskina Beats Sugiyama 2 sets to 1
Sugiyama Beats Henin 2 sets to 1

The result of the round robin would be:
Capriati Record: 3-0 with 6 sets winning to 0 sets losing
Henin Record: 1-2 with 3 sets winning to 5 sets losing
Myskina Record: 1-2 with 3 sets winning to 5 sets losing
Sugiyama Record: 1-2 with 3 sets winning to 5 sets losing

Therefore:
Capriati gets undisputed 1st place. 2nd place is tied between all 3 other players in match & set records.

QUESTION: Who gets the 2nd place into the Semifinals from the Black group... is it determined by the number of games played now???

Thanks

Actually, if tonight's loser will be out, then I wasn't talking nonsense.

I'm glad you finally see my point.
