The rules are clear on that. Wozniacki advances.

They put percentage sets won and percentages games won in the subsection of three way tiebreakers. That is really open to interpretation, whether this applies to the H2H three way tiebreaker or the overall group.

Azarenka is assured winning the White Group now, right?

What scenario would need to occur for Woz to finish 2nd in Red Group? I want another Vika/Caro match SO badly.

twinbridge

Oct 27th, 2011, 05:23 PM

Well the answer to that singular question is NO.

If Wozniacki loses, and Radwanska wins 2-0, she might be through. The WTA rules are not clear on that.

Say Kvitova beats Wozniacki 2-1, and Radwanska 2-0. Radwanska beats Zvonareva 2-0.

If all results matter as a tiebreaker Wozniacki advances. If only H2H between tied players matters Radwanska advances.

For the scenario u mentioned above,

the tournament rules states:

When 3 players ties at 1-2, the players played less matches were eliminated first, then CHECK winning percentage of sets :
for Woz it is 4/9
for Radvanska it is 3/7
for Zvonereva it is 2/7

Woz advanced to SF.

for Woz, if she beat Kvitova at 2:0, that would be sufficient for her to be No 2 in RED group; if she beat Kvitova at 2:1, then Zvonareva must lose 1 set to Aga to have Woz in 2nd.

This group is still not settled yet.

If Vera beats Aga either 2 or 3 sets, then she will be 2nd, regardless the last match. Kvitova will be st.

If Aga beats Vera 2-0, she will be in. If Aga beats Vera 2-1, then tomorrow match will be determine who advance:

Aga beats Vera 2/0, lose to Petra 0-2-->Aga 3-4, Caro3-5, Vera 2-5---> Aga advances.
Aga beats Vera2/0, lose to Petra 1-2, ---> Aga 4-4, Caro3-5, Vera 2-5---> Aga advance.
Aga beats Vera 2/1, lose to Petra 0-2,---> Aga 3-5, Caro 3-5, Vera 3-5---> Game win/ lost ratial will be counted.
Aga beats Vera 2/1, lose to Petra 1-2----> Aga 4-5, Caro3-5, Vera 3-5---> Aga advance.

It the start of the 2nd set Vera's games won/lost was 30/30. Caro's is 34/41.

Just did a quick calculation, I think Radwanska now needs to take a set off Petra tomorrow even if she beats Vera. She cannot go through on games won/lost.

Yes she does.

..and if you are Kvitova, I don´t think you want to have Vera in the semifinal. She played and served like piss and still broke Kvitova four times. If there is one player that seems to be able to handle Kvitovas serve it is Zvonareva.

Here are the results:

VERA has 35-37 games
WOZ has 34-41 games

So, Vera is definitely BETTER than Woz.

AGA has 27-30 games.
If AGA loses in two sets: Her games percentage is worse than VERAs.

I think:

IF RADWANSKA WINS A SET: Radwanska IN THE SEMIS

IF RADWANSKA LOSES 0-2: VERA is IN THE SEMIS

killerqueen

Oct 27th, 2011, 09:31 PM

If Radwanska wins tomorrow, she goes straight through.
If Radwanska loses in three sets, she still goes through as she'd have 4 sets to Wozniacki and Zvonareva's 3 sets.
If Radwanska loses in straights, she's eliminated and Zvonareva goes through, as she has a better win/lose game ratio.

Radwanska can finish anywhere from 1st to last in her group, depending on the Petra match.

If she wins her match, she lands in first place.
Wins a set, second place.
Loses in 2 tight sets, third place.
Gets whipped, last place.

All very likely options. Who knows which Petra shows up? She is already through.

And if Radwanska wins the match she also wins the Group

(Memo to Sam Smith who said that Kvitova has guaranteed the Group)

No, this was the one thing Sam Smith and Simon Reed got right. If Radwanska wins 2-1 then it will be as follows

Kvitova - 2 wins and 5/2 on sets
Radwanska - 2 wins and 5/4 on sets

If Radwanska wins 2-0 then Kvitova would be 4/2 and Radwanska 5/3. Not sure if 4/2 (66.7%) is considered better than 5/3 (62.5%) but if it comes down to games then Kvitova is currently 24/12 and Radwanska is 27/30. In that case Radwanska would have to thrash Kvitova to top the group.

Total percentage of games won/lost from all three matches will count and Radwanska cannot overtake Zvonareva even if she loses 67 67 to Kvitova. Hence she must win a set. Wozniacki is definitely out.
