Can someone explain the RR in Buenos Aires

I'm trying to figure out why Nicolas Devilder advanced to the quarterfinals in Buenos Aires:

If in RR Group 8, Ferrero, Devilder & Lapentti all finished with 1 win apiece, the winner should've been whoever had the highest % of sets won right?
According to the results on the draw sheet, Devilder had a lower % of sets won & games won than Ferrero, so how come he moved on to the quarters? Can anyone explain this to me?

Yes, please someone. I can't figure it out either. :shrug:

Lapentti withdrew from the tournament and was replaced by Lukas Dlouhy.

Ferrero and Devilder finished up in a tie, that was decided by their previous meeting. Devilder won 16 76 60, so he went through.

Because he won the match between the two of them, isn't that it?

Aaah, thanks Caralimon, I didn't realise it became a head-2-head thing if a tie. Makes sense now.

So JC didn't want to play Dlouhy because he knew that even if he won he wouldn't go through?

this is how the process was summarised by a professional writer

Earlier Thursday, former No. 1 Juan Carlos Ferrero defeated Czech replacement Lukas Dlouhy 6-3, 6-3 and still failed to reach the quarterfinals.

Ferrero was second in his round-robin group to Nicolas Devilder of France, who beat the Spaniard on Wednesday and advanced to his first ATP quarterfinals against Diego Hartfield of Argentina. Devilder had lost to Nicolas Lapentti of Ecuador, who withdrew because of an injury and was replaced by Dlouhy.

i don't think it makes more sense than our mtf explanations, but he tried :lol:

I think it confused me more... :lol: :lol:

Hopefully rr will be gone in 2008, and I won't have to worry about understanding it anymore.
