Say if i.e Justine Henin or Sharapova got injured or something during a match and forfeited the match but still made the Semis. Would they be forced to forfeit from the whole tournament or could they still play in the Semis if they chose to?

if you withdraw from a match, you withdrawn from the tournament basically.

If someone withdrew during the Round Robin portion of the tournament, wouldn't the first alternate, Patty Schnyder in this case, take her place?

but not for the semifinal place
the 3rd placed player would go thru.

So Schnyder and Dinara Safina have no chance to play anymore. At least they got to hang out in Madrid on the Tour's dime. ;)
