The difference between being #9 instead of #10 is not immediately important, but then you'd only need one withdrawal for Caro to be QF seed at AO.
No, Caro can't pass Stosur in the rankings if she wins Sofia. Even if Caro wins Sofia while going undefeated in round robin play she'd still be 235 points behind in the rankings.
Caro has to make it the final of Sofia undefeated in round robin play or win Sofia (regardless of win-loss record in round robin play) in order to finish the season at #10. That's assuming that Bartoli doesn't play at the YEC.
The Babylon project was our last best hope for peace. A self-contained world five miles long, located in neutral territory. A place of commerce and diplomacy for a quarter of a million humans and aliens. A shining beacon in space, all alone in the night. It was the dawn of the third age of mankind, the year the great war came upon us all. This is the story of the last of the Babylon stations. The year is 2259, the name of the place is Babylon 5.
