I don't think so. I see Goerges beating Wozniacki or Sharapova beating Li/Kvitova.
It's definitely possible though!

The bolded one simply cannot happen so no. Also whoever makes it out of the bottom is winning the title.

Those projected results are certainly plausible especially since Rus has beaten Razzano; which probably was the most likely spoiler match to prevent the wooden spoon scenario. I remembered this happened to Caro at both the FO and Wimbledon last year but at least Caro won two matches at RG and three matches at Wimbledon before the wooden spoon route unfolded.

I dont know anyone thinks it is more than a very tiny likelihood, like almost nothing. Wozniacki beating Goerges on clay would be a huge upset given their past matches and Wozniacki not even in good form or momentum right now. Sharapova is unlikely to lose to Na or Kvitova in the semifinals right now. She is just too mentally strong for the currently headcasey and error strewn fellow power hitters, even if both can match her shot for shot, and have the games to beat her. Azarenka, Stosur, or Radwanska have little chance vs any of those in the finals too given the surface and matchups. Well Azarenka could well beat Sharapova, but that would be the only one, and after their last match I would favor Maria in that too.

i don't think it's going to happen, but the chance isn't that remote either

I think it could be possible if Kanepi beats Woz since she could beat Goerges
If Stosur makes it through, she would crush Li who could beat Sharapova

If you lose in the first round, and your opponent loses in the next round, whose opponent loses in the next round, etc. then you win the wooden spoon award. There's only one each tournament.

Yeah, it's an (dis)honorable award for the worst player/team in the competition. In tournament formula it works the way you described.

Would be amazing if Serena got one. :haha:

In theory, to win the wooden spoon means that you were the worst player in the entire tournament.
