A suggestion, is it not possible to list the Round Robin matches in a cronological order as the matches were played? I remember Henin-Momo in 2005 was a great last match which decided the final standing in the group.
That would be much better as we know that the results of the group affected the willing to win by many players eg. Petrova trashing Sharapova 6-1 6-2, etc...

It's a great idea Tommystar-if anyone posts or PMS me the results in the order they happened I will edit them in.

Virginia Slims Championships
New York, New York, USA (Indoor Carpet)
Notes:
A record 5 women of Czech origin entered: Kelesi, Mandlikova, Novotna, Navratilova, and Sukova.

Excuse me, but I always thought Helen Kelesi was of Canadian heritage?

Hi Josus:wavey: Kelesi was Canadian, but her parents were Czech. They emigrated to Canada the year before she was born.

Is there a list anywhere on this forum that shows all the winners of the 3rd place play offs? I was just wondering as it seems that some years had a third place play off and others didn't and I just wondered whether there was a list available that showed them clearly? Sorry if that's confusing!
