The Round Robin format has always needed some adjustments, but this year I had to take a decision about Serena, as she did play, so in Tennis Poker terms she must get a value, but was removed from the final standings.
Considering the other 8 as quarterfinalists, Serena will get the usual value for a 5th seed retiring or losing in the last 16 round, which would be 4.
Keeping the other usual YEC rules:
Q: Ivanovic (semis losing to eventual winner)
J: Chakvetadze (semis losing to eventual runner-up)
10: Bartoli (3rd place in the eventual winner group)
9: Hantuchova (3rd place in the other group)
8: Jankovic (4th place in the eventual winner group)
7: Kuznetsova (4th place in the the other group)
I do think this is the best solution and I'm taking this decision way before starting the 8th leg work so that nobody will take advantage.
