How could ESPN miss the best match on Friday night? I want to thank Eurosport for the live audio feed.

Except that the English commentators thought that Rubin qualified... they got the math wrong...

ESPN showed the awful Capriati vs. Henin-Hardenne match late Friday evening, early Saturday morning instead of the terrific Clijsters vs. Mauresmo match.

espn's commentators can't say anything smart enough to make a mistake (that's why there is espn.com to make mistakes for them)

But they insisted that they calculated according to the rules, and led the viewers to believe that the organizers introduced new rules they couldn't know about....
The fact is... they just got their math wrong...
Joe calculated that Mauresmo has won 4 sets out of 8 sets played and therefor has 50% sets percentage, while Rubin has 3 sets won against 5 sets lost and so has 60% sets percentage...
Anyone with a right mind would realize that a 4-4 sets count must be better than 3-5 no matter how you calculate...
