Do you like the round robin format?

Have you enjoyed the round robin format being used for the WTA Championships?

Yes its great. You see the top players play more than one match and you get to see matchups you probably wouldnt see back to back to back.

The only thing missing were the williams sisters and lindsay.

It's good but would work better if there were more players in each group or more groups.

No, because some people in the semi-finals don't deserve to be there. And its very easy to rig a match so your friend could come into the semi-finals. A.K.A If Clijsters hadn't of lost that set Mauresmo and Rubin would have been tied. And don't even try to tell me Mauresmo was playing well.

Besides its also to complicated.

I really like the format too. It's cool because it's a nice change from the single elimination format used the rest of the year.

Wrong. Amelie would still have better % (because she won in 2 sets and Chanda in 3).

Mixed emotions.

On one hand, it's nice that you can lose a match and come back and still have a chance to win the tournament.

On the other hand, it kind of takes the excitement away from having to win every match and every match is important because every match is essentially and elimination match.

I think this format is great. With the WIlliams and LIndsay this tournament would have been perfect.
THere's just one rule that anny me a bit.
the fact that Chanda isn't qualified, and Mauresmo yes. Chanda and Mauresmo both lost twice. BUt Chanda beat Mauresmo, so for me Chanda should be the semi-finalist.
ANyway, Mauresmo'll bring Justine more points to win !!

yes, it´s better

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood
