Of course, I'm not saying that Petra would've ended up better than Doi cause Sharka is currently in a league of her own (OK, in a league with Serena), but it doesn't prove it either.

The same goes for claiming that a player who lost in qualies, if it weren't for the loss, would've drawn the same player his conquerer ended up getting in the main draw Anyone had science classes and possibly heard of something called the butterfly effect? Or maybe of cause and effect systems?

You're right on both counts. It's just that sometimes the temptation to draw those conclusions is too strong
