I know they´re VERY slim, but I would like to know if she still has a chance...

she's 100% out :(

even if kuzzie wins from maria, ana wins from maria and daniela wins from kuzzie
then kuzzie, maria and dani all have 1 win and 2 losses
daniela is 0-4 in sets right now, could make it 2-4
maria could also make it 2-4 in sets, but kuzzie can't: she did win a set against ivanovic, so sveta would have 3-4 in sets and would advance

Rough estimate: 0.00000000000000000000%.

ivanovic 2-0

kuznetsova 0-1

sharapova 0-1

hantuchova 0-2

remaining matches:

sharapova vs kuznetsova
sharapova vs ivanovic
kuznetsova vs hantuchova

I think even if thay all have one win, the number of sets win will now count. Kuznetsova got a set from Ana so she is up there. While Maria's win over Kuznetsova would almost guarantee her as Anna might reserve her energy into semis and might tank it out if she can have a chance of being seeded 2 in her group to avoid Justine as the top seed on the other side.

All in all, she is almost out, but a miracle could happen.

Yup she has no chance.
Ivanovic is already through from this group, and even if the other three tie on points ie, Hantuchova, Kuznetsova and Sharapova each going 1-2, either Kuz or Pova will have won more sets than Hantuchova, so she has ZERO chance.

nope, a miracle cannot happen.
there is no scenario where daniela could make it to the semi's (except when someone should give forfait for the semifinals but that is very unlikely )

I hope not.

you have a weird interpretation of the word 'miracle' ;)

I'll take peace with it if danka beats kuznetsova

Since Danka cannot do it anymore, I think its better if Kuzi win, so the real battle for the semis would be the match between Kuzi and Sharpie. I dont want Anna to be torn of tanking her match over sharpi to the expense of Kuzi not qualifying.

Daniela's only hopes of finished third relies on Sveta losing to Dani and Masha.

What are the chances of Daniela qualyfing for the semis?

Probably next to nothing, but regardless she shouldn't be disappointed. She's proven doubters wrong about her IW win (back in 2001) being a fluke.

She is just a waste of space and time.Bartoli would have made her matches competetive and won a set or 2.:fiery:

This is right. I just toyed with the numbers as best I could.

Dani has performed slightly better than I expected her to. Bartoli is a joke.

it's unfair to compare Bartoli to Hantuchova as Bartoli came in without preparation.

Very true.

It's like going to a high school play and expecting the Understudy to do as well as the Lead.

There is a way for Hantu to make the semi's : Kuznetsova and Maria getting ill. At the same time. Today. ;)

Or if she beats Kuznetsova in straights and Maria gets ill/injured.
