They do claim that in http://sofia-tennis.bg/en/news/Carol...mifinalist-165, but I think they are wrong. Wozniacki needs at least 6 games against Hantuchova to be certain of the semifinals, but she will probably advance even with 0 games.
Results so far:
Roberta Vinci - Daniela Hantuchova 6-1 6-2
Caroline Wozniacki - Hsieh Su-Wei 6-2 6-2
Caroline Wozniacki - Roberta Vinci 6-3 6-1

The rules are on page 178 (PDF page 181) of http://www.wtatennis.com/SEWTATour-A...Tour/rules.pdf
Suppose these unlikely results in the remaining group matches:

Caroline Wozniacki - Daniela Hantuchova 2-6, 3-6
Roberta Vinci - Hsieh Su-Wei 6-0, 6-0
Daniela Hantuchova - Hsieh Su-Wei 6-0, 6-0

This would give these standings:
Code:
Player         matches sets games
Roberta Vinci      2-1 4-2 28-15 
Daniela Hantuchova 2-1 4-2 27-17
Caroline Wozniacki 2-1 4-2 29-20
Hsieh Su-Wei       0-3 0-6  4-36
Wozniacki would come last of the top-3 due to lowest percentage of games won. In a three-way tie you don't necessarily get above a player you are tied with and beat. All three beat one of the two others in this scenario but somebody has to be third.
