Re: Katarina Srebotnik!

Possible scenarios (YEC):


1. Kata and Ai lose tomorrow

Standings after Linz:

4 SUGIYAMA, AI (JPN) / SREBOTNIK, KATARINA (SLO) 2392
5 BONDARENKO, ALONA (UKR) / BONDARENKO, KATERYNA (UKR) 2350
6 RAYMOND, LISA (USA) / STOSUR, SAMANTHA (AUS) 2197
7 CHUANG, CHIA-JUNG (TPE) / CHAN, YUNG-JAN (TPE) 2196

Assuming only the Bondarenkos play Québec...if they win, they move to 4th place with 2515 points. If they reach the final, they move to 4th place with 2465 points. If they reach the semis, they move to 4th place with 2425 points. If they reach the quarterfinals, they remain in 5th place (behind Kata and Sugi).

Assuming Lisa and Sam play Québec…even if they win the final, they remain as no.6 with 2332 points.



2. Kata and Ai reach the final

Standings after Linz:

4 SUGIYAMA, AI (JPN) / SREBOTNIK, KATARINA (SLO) 2457
5 BONDARENKO, ALONA (UKR) / BONDARENKO, KATERYNA (UKR) 2350
6 RAYMOND, LISA (USA) / STOSUR, SAMANTHA (AUS) 2197
7 CHUANG, CHIA-JUNG (TPE) / CHAN, YUNG-JAN (TPE) 2196

Assuming only the Bondarenkos play Québec...if they win, they move to 4th place with 2515 points. If they reach the final, they move to 4th place with 2465 points. If they reach the semis, they remain in 5th place (behind Kata and Sugi).


3. Kata and Ai win the tournament

Standings after Linz:

4 SUGIYAMA, AI (JPN) / SREBOTNIK, KATARINA (SLO) 2542
5 BONDARENKO, ALONA (UKR) / BONDARENKO, KATERYNA (UKR) 2350
6 RAYMOND, LISA (USA) / STOSUR, SAMANTHA (AUS) 2197
7 CHUANG, CHIA-JUNG (TPE) / CHAN, YUNG-JAN (TPE) 2196

Assuming only the Bondarenkos play Québec...if they win, they remain in 5th place with 2515 points (27 points behind Kata and Sugi).



CONCLUSION: TO SECURE A SPOT IN THE YEC, KATA AND AI MUST PLAY QUÉBEC UNLESS THEY WIN LINZ.
