Players meet more than once in a tournament

I am wondering how often players play against each other more than once during the same tournament.

I guess it happens quite often where more than one player progresses from a group stage (e.g Masters Cup).

However, in straight knock out tournaments I guess it will only happen when a LL is promoted to the Main Draw and subsequently plays against the qualifier who previously beat them. How common is this occurence?

Is there any other scenario I have overlooked?

Uncommon occurrences.

Second Round: Nicolas Lapentti (LL) def. Wayne Black 1-6 6-3 6-0

Re: Players meet more than once in a tournament

I remember one thing, but it was on wta tour... i think it was RG qualies, Flipkens played against somebody, and won, and then lost in the MD (i think it was that way) but that's not on ATP tour...

Re: Players meet more than once in a tournament

1) funny that the loser would go on to meet the more important of the two matches - the MD one. I wonder if it has something to do with mid-match or pre-match knowledge that a LL spot was promised already even with a loss, and so the higher ranked/better player wouldn't mind losing the final qualifications, since he would make it to the maindraw anyway, where amusingly he met his "conquerer" again just because of mere chance.

2) in the wtatour, an amazing repeat match accured when Ivanovic would beat Czink in a low TierIV event in Australia in the third round match of qualifications.
not only was it a Q VS LL final match without seeds, in which they both upset thier respective ways all the way to the final, but Ivanovic would beat Czink again in a matter of 5 days and lift the trophy.

Re: Players meet more than once in a tournament

It looks like on virtually every occasion when this happens the result is reversed in the second match! Maybe it's the psychological pressure on the winner of the first match that somehow is a big disadvantage?
