Re: WTF semi-final qualification speculation thread

I read a British poster (Roamed) say that Murray would have the afternoon semifinal, can anyone confirm ?

it's better to have more rest before the final next day, esp. as I think the second semi will start quite late.

Come oooonnnn, Muzz

Murray wins a set, he's qualified. Djokovic qualifies first and Murray qualifies second.

Re: WTF semi-final qualification speculation thread

Tsonga must be surprised that he's still in the mix for a SF spot, that is if anyone has even told him. Beating Murray won't be an easy task, but if he's going to do it, his best chance is a straight sets win. That will only happen if Murray doesn't get his ground game going, if it goes to three sets Murray will grind his way through to a win...

So now that Djokovic has won in 2, 3 of the 4 scenarios will get Murray through. Only a straight sets loss to Tsonga would be enough for Jo to get the second semi-final spot.

Re: WTF semi-final qualification speculation thread

Yeah the table makes it easier to see instead of paragraphs of scenarios.

One thing I would suggest though is to order te rows and columns of the tables differently, order them, Murray 2-0, Murray 2-1, Tsonga 2-1, Tsonga 2-0, and the same type of thing for Nole/Berdych, IMO it makes it easier to we the gradual change of what happens from result to result. For example in that case the first 3 columns would have Nole advancing so he only needs 1 set, instead of 2 columns with him advancing then the Berdych 2-0 column where he wouldn't wrap a spot up yet, and then another column where e advances, its not as easy to see things like that with the current ordering

Or maybe its just me but that's how I'd order that table

Well, Federer beat Hewitt twice in 2004, at a time their H2H was tight (went from 7-6 Hewitt to 8-7 Federer). He also recorded his first two wins against Agassi in 2003, going from 0-3 to 2-3 in the H2H.

Re: WTF semi-final qualification speculation thread

Djokovic-Berdych will be the afternoon session.

1. if Djokovic defeats Berdych in 2 sets, Djokovic will be number 1 of the group, Berdych will be out, Tsonga will need to defeat Murray in 2 to take him the number 2 seat.

2. if Djokovic defeats Berdych in 3 sets, Djokovic will be number 1 of the group, Tsonga will be out, Berdych will have to hope Tsonga wins in 2 to take Murray out.

3. if Berdych defeats Djokovic in 3 sets, Djokovic will be through, Tsonga will be out, Berdych will have to hope Tsonga wins (whatever the number of sets) to take Murray out. If so, Berdych would be number 1, Djokovic number 2 ; else Djokovic number 1, Murray number 2.

4. if Berdych defeats Djokovic in 2 sets, Berdych will be through, Tsonga will be out, Murray will have to defeat Tsonga in 2 sets to take the second qualifying seat from Djokovic. If so Murray would be number 1, Berdych number 2. If not, Berdych would be number 1, Djokovic number 2.

Re: WTF semi-final qualification speculation thread

Best case scenario:
Djokovic beats Berdy, Murray beat Tsonga,
Fed and Ferrer finish 1, 2 in the other group.
Murray has a shanghai type performance against Fed in the semi, the other semi and the final are replays of the US Open and Murray wins again in London
