I think it can

I hope the draw falls this way:

Pool 1: Justine, Venus, Serena, Capriati
Pool 2: Clijsters, Mauresmo, Rubin, Dementieva

SF: Venus vs. Mauresmo, Serena vs. Clijsters

F: Venus vs. Serena.

We could see Juju vs. Venus, Juju vs. Serena, Juju vs. Cappy, Venus vs. Cappy, Serena vs. Cappy, and Venus vs. Serena twice!! That would be

With the round robin, every match is guranteed to be sensational unless kim plays chanda or dementieva, that will be in two easy sets.
If Justine has to play Venus, Serena and Jen in a row she will end up on the drip. No easy task there.
You are right, this is going to be better than the slams from the get go :bounce:

So Lindsay will definitely not be playing in the year-end championship?

So there are two groups?
Are they chosen randomly or is it like 1 and 2 opposite, etc.
No idea how it's done here. In the Masters Cup indeed

#1-2, #3-4, #5-6, #7-8 all divided over the two groups

It's my understanding the grouping will be

Group A :#1, #4, #5, #8
Group B: #2, #3, #6, #7

The best two from each group advance to semis (ie : Semis: #1 v. #4 and #2 v. #3).

Points will be given for each match won in the round robin, and tier points for SF, F, Winner.

I just realise you want a cakewalk draw for Kim this time too. Putting the 2 Williams and Justine (the 3 best players) in the same group is not very fair. Then, you add Capriati in this group !!
Whereas Kim only have Mauresmo (who she thrashed at USOpen), Dementiva and Rubin !!

Sorry, but the best draw would be:
Pool 1 : Justine, Serena, Mauresmo, Dementieva
Pool 2 : Kim, Venus, Capriati, Rubin.
SF : Venus - Justine , Serena - Kim
Or Venus-Serena , Justine-Kim
Finals : A clash beween Justine and Serena !!! Winner doesn't matter as long as it's a good match.

As of today:

Group A:
Clijsters, Capriati, V Williams, Dementieva

Group B:
Henin-Hardenne, S Williams, Mauresmo, Myskina.

I think those look equally as tough.

hey soemeone said that had the points system for the the end year champs, but could only reveal it after the USOPEN.

Where is that poster?

The WTA champs website only states that 2 people will be seeded.
