What are the tie rules?

How du you read this?


4. Final Standings of Round Robin Competition

a. Final Standings

The final standings of each group shall be determined by the first of the following methods that apply:

1. Greatest number of wins;

2. Greatest number of matches played; or

3. Head-to-head results if only two (2) players are tied, or if three (3) players are tied then:

1. If three (3) players each have one (1) win, a player having played less than all three (3) matches is automatically eliminated and the player advancing to the single elimination competition is the winner of the match-up of the two (2) players tied with 1-2 records; or

2. Highest percentage of sets won; or

3. Highest percentage of games won.



Does that mean only the set score between the 3 tied players matter, or is it the set score from all matches?

Madison Brengle: "I'd rather chew on a pinecone than play this match (against Wozniacki)."
Nicole Melichar: "Do you want me to go find you one?"

Re: What are the tie rules?

yea, that author of the EB article just got back to me. He says that it's only the set score between the three players in question.





Or is this wrong?

Could someone more knowledgeable about the rules clarify? It's confusing to say the least...

Re: What are the tie rules?

You're probably all confused why Venus went to the SF and not Elena. Here's how it works!

1) First you look at number of wins. Serena had 3 wins. She moves to SF. Kuz, Demen, and Venus all had 1 win, so there is a 3 person tie.

2) To break this tie, you look at who played the most matches. All three played three matches, so they're still tied. (This rule is mostly so that alternates don't move to the SF with only 1 win).

3) Since the 3 still tied, you have to look at the percentage of sets that the players won. Kuz won 3 out of 7 sets (43%). Elena won 2 out of 7 sets (29%). Venus won 4 out of 9 sets (44%).

Venus 44%
Kuz 43%
Elena 29%

Venus through to the semis.

Just FYI, if let's say Serena won all 3 matches and moved to the SF, and Kuz and Elena both beat Venus, both of them would have 2-1 records, so whoever won the match between Kuz and Elena would have moved to the SF.



GO VENUS!!!
