Why is the Group A Scenario confusing everyone?

People saying Djokovic still has a chance?

Djokovic finished 1-2, and sets lost was 3-5.

Even if Berdych loses in two, that means he'll finish 1-2, 3-5 in sets and it'll come down to how many games they've won

26-42 record in games for Djokovic

Berdych has a 30-34 record now, so basically he needs to avoid a beatdown, and I don't see that happening against Ferrer

Am I missing something here?

Yes you are. If there is a three way tie, the guy that hasn't played all the group matches is eliminated and then the h2h between the other 2 players will decide which one goes through. As Djokovic defeated Berdych, he will advance if Ferrer wins tonight.

Because Tipsy is substitute, only 1W-1L

If Ferrer 3W-0L (Ferrer win Czech), both Djoker and Czech 1W-2L, Djoker KO Czech by H2H)

If all Ferrer, Djoker, Czech are set 2W-1L, no H2H can be counted, but Djoker lost # of set.

Djoker's lose seems delibrately. If he loses, Ferrer need to win Czech to confirm A1, the Djoker will be A2.

However, if Djoker wins his country, Ferrer seems need only 1 set to confirm A1 (loses to Czechby 1-2 still A1, but Djoker out)

If the tie is between two players, the tie breaker is the head-to-head.

If the tie is between three players, than the tie breaker is percentage of sets win

Group B would have to be cheering for a Ferrer win tonight so they get a crack at a tired Novak.
