19 players (the ones in <b>bold</b>) have been able to improve their values thanks to the Australian Open. :)

23 players are in the Tokyo main draw, though 5 have already lost and Hingis has already scored an Ace and can't get any better than that. :)

Thank you, good luck! :wavey:

This was Dokic's first tournament; as the second seed with a first round bye, just entering the tournament was worth a 6 for Jelena.
Ironically, this score forced many posters to renounce to some spare cards with higher values. :rolleyes:

Out of the 15 players who have already lost, Jelena Dokic is the only player who has been able to improve her score in Tokyo.

Let’s take a look at the chances of the last 8. :)

<b><font color=tomato>Martina Hingis</font></b> has already scored the highest possible value. :)

<b><font color=tomato>Tamarine Tanasugarn</font></b> is already a K and so must win the tournament. :eek:

<b><font color=tomato>Anna Kournikova</font></b> and <b><font color=tomato>Monica Seles</font></b> will better their values reaching the final. :)

The winner of <b><font color=tomato>Sandrine Testud</font></b> vs <b><font color=tomato>Silvia Farina-Elia</font></b> will get better, but no improvement for this quarterfinal’s loser. :)

Surely a higher value for <b><font color=tomato>Anne Kremer</font></b>, who will score at least a 9 even if she loses in the quarterfinals, while <b><font color=tomato>Alexandra Stevenson</font></b> needs a win to go beyond her 10. :)

The winner of Anna Kournikova vs Monica Seles will better her value with at least a K, while the loser will score a J. :)

Silvia Farina-Elia will surely have an improvement, she is one of the best spare cards now as she’ll score at least a Q for her semifinal. :)

It’s Martina Hingis vs Monica Seles in the final. :)

The winner will score an Ace, the runner-up a King. Martina has already scored an Ace in Sydney, so the final in Tokyo will decide only Monica’s updated value. :)

Besides Jelena Dokic, who hadn’t played a tournament yet, only three players have been able to improve their values thanks to a brilliant performance in Tokyo. :)

Congratulations to Monica, Silvia, Anne and Jelena! :D

Paris will be the last tournament of the first leg and as soon as the main draw is released, more than half of these values will be definitive. I'll post a new thread with the final results as the tournament progresses day by day. :)

Thank you, good luck! :wavey:

Doc, just testing to see if I'm beginning to understand this...would my current hand be K/A/5/Q/2?

Feb 4th, 2002, 07:28 AM
Hi doc! hmmm testing too... mine will be, K/A/K/K/A, right? and is that good? i'm not really good at poker! I'm more of a blackjack person! :D

Adrian: no

Buttercup: no

I suppose there's still a little bit of confusion about the spare cards, I'll be back with more details for both. :)

DoctorG
Feb 4th, 2002, 02:49 PM
Adrian,
your hand is a little bit better than you expected:

Henin / Hingis / Tulyaganova / S.Williams / Zuluaga
K / A / 5 / Q / -

Your spare cards:
Sugiyama / Molik
10 / 2

Ai Sugiyama is the spare card with the higher value, so it’s her to replace Zuluaga in your hand:

Hingis / Henin / S.Williams / Sugiyama / Tulyaganova
A / K / Q / 10 / 5

Unluckily at this moment you don’t score any particular combination and that probably won’t be enough to qualify.

DoctorG
Feb 4th, 2002, 02:59 PM
Buttercup,
your hand is quite good, you’ll probably have a brilliant performance in this round, but it looks like this:

Davenport / Henin / Hingis / Shaughnessy / V.Williams
- / K / A / K / A

Your spare cards:
Dechy / Raymond
7 / 6

Nathalie Dechy replaces Lindsay Davenport, and so:

Hingis / V.Williams / Henin / Shaughnessy / Dechy
A / A / K / K / 7

This combination is named “two pairs”, it consists of two distinct couples of two cards with the same value, and it’s not a bad result at all. :)

Adrian
Feb 4th, 2002, 03:02 PM
So if I can get another A, K, Q or 10, then I'll have a pair?

If I can score a J, Well things would be pretty sweet ;)

DoctorG
Feb 4th, 2002, 03:02 PM
Of course there's still a week to try to improve. If you have any other question, I'll be glad to answer. :)

Thank you, good luck! :wavey:

DoctorG
Feb 4th, 2002, 03:07 PM
Adrian,
yes, that's correct. :) Iroda is playing in Paris, isn't she? A semifinal in the bottom half of the draw would mean a straight for you, and that kind of result would probably be enough to win the whole tournament. :)

Adrian
Feb 4th, 2002, 03:11 PM
:eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

I'm off to the paris forum to start up a cheering thread for Iroda ;)

oohhh i got it now, Doc! I got confused with Seles.. i forgot, that was in the second leg round, right? Thanks for explaining Doc! :)

:p @Adrian! ;) *putting on poker face* :(

no problem, I was happy to help you. Indeed Monica will be included in your hand only from next week. :)
