their site is screwed up . . . they list the semis for friday and saturday (this week) but if you go to the schedule and click on the date there is nothing there so it's not posible to be sure of anything.

. . . write to them about their content (or lack thereof): websitecontent@thetennischannel.com

Deboogle!.
01-11-2006, 02:21 AM
I think so, World Beater.

it's like a regular QF draw tourney. The winners advance to the Semifinals, and the winners play a final for a winner.

Except, the losers also keep playing. Since the players are using it as a warmup for the AO, they want the guaranteed 3 matches. SOme of the players, this is their only tuneup.

That's how it worked the past 2 years, I'm merely assuming it is the same this year.

i found a site that has a scoreboard for Kooyong Classic but right now it doesn't show anything. Scores of two other matches are on but nothing on Ljubicic vs Coria yet.
http://www.7sport.com.au/Default.aspx?sport=TNS&module=FORM&competition=867&group=1390&stage=3&event=1
Go to Tennis->Scoreboard and scroll down to 2006 Kooyong Classic.

I really hope this is an active scoreboard. *fingers crossed*

EDIT: the scoreboard is DEAD, so go to the Kooyong site to get the scores.

So this is from an AP Article, reveals what the draw looks like
------------
Haas advanced to the winners group and will next play Guillermo Coria, a 6-2, 6-2 winner over Ivan Ljubicic.

Federer and Ljubicic meet in the relegation group.

In the other half, Andy Roddick returned from two months off and beat 19-year-old Frenchman Gael Monfils 6-2, 6-2.

He'll next play the winner of Wednesday's later match between Masters Cup champion Nalbandian and Nicolas Kiefer.

OK - i found something from last year and i think this clears up some doubts
refer to:
http://www.kooyongltc.com.au/files/4VTS6X23HS/KC%20-%20DRAW%20FORMAT.pdf#search='kooyong%20classic'

notice that in deb's post, federer, monfils and ljubicic losing today goes into the relegation group, while roddick, haas, and coria advances to the winners group. the last tie determines who's the remaining member to go into the 'loser group' and who joins the 'winners group'.
and from now, it splits to that 2 groups. so, if i'm not mistaken, the ones who loses today are out of contention for the finals.

Deboogle!.
01-11-2006, 06:22 AM
no no it's not round-robin.

Think of an 8-person regular tournament, like quarterfinals. The winners move on to the semis and the losers go home. This is the same, except the losers play each other. So Tommy and Coria won, they will play each other in one Semi and Andy will play whoever wins the last match between Kiefer/Nalbandian. Then on the losers side, Roger will play Ljubicic and Monfils will play whoever loses the last match. Once you go to the losers bracket you can't get back over to the winners.

Does this help? :confused:

01-11-2006, 06:30 AM
I know :lol: I remember the first time I followed it a couple years ago I was like HUH WHAT!? Then someone explained it to me so I am happy to pass along the knowledge.

It makes sense if you think about it b/c it guarantees all the guys 3 matches, for some of them it's their first and only warmup for the AO so they need that. And the opponents are all high-quality, regardless of anything else. But yeah, they do need an explanation on the site somewhere, b/c they call it 'round-robin' and it's not really.
