Has there actually ever been a semifinalist with only one victory?

Of course it's happened many times that three players have two victories, but I can't remember a Masters/WTF where three players had one win and advanced to the semis. In doubles that has happened a couple of times, but apparently never in singles?

How is that even mathematically possible?

In singles - no-one got the final, but in doubles Connell and Galbraith won the title in 1995 despite losing two round robin matches (one of them in straight sets!).

Sure it's possible, the first guy (D) wins all 3 and then the rest win against each other: A wins B, B wins C, C wins A with D winning all.

Its not ATP finals but its recent: Istanbul WTA finals last month when 3 players finished at 1-2 record (Zvonareva advanced) behind Kvitova (3-0).
