    If Bartoli wins her match, Philly10 beats the draw if Radwanska wins the final.

    No one can beat the draw if either Bartoli or Flipkens wins the tournament.

    No one can beat the draw if Bartoli and Lisicki both win their semi-finals.

    I believe the SP will be won by one of those mentioned above. No matter who wins the Bartoli/Flipkens match, there will be at least one player in the position to make a pick for the finals. For instance, if Bartoli wins her semi, we have a winner (Philly10).
    SP players not mentioned above have made their last pick.

    Now that Bartoli has won the first semi, if Lisicki wins her match, won't the Lisicki pickers and the Bartoli picker win medals because no one has a pick left for the final?

    Irena 2, That is of course what happened, and I think you are exactly right. Those are the people who made it through the semis, but then had no pick left for the finals. I was wrong above when I suggested that no one had a chance to "win" other than those with a likely pick for the finals. I forgot to analyze (for SP's sake), how everyone would stand with this outcome. While I mentioned that no one could beat the draw with this outcome, I forgot that we would then have others coming into play since another group would make it through and then have no pick. The moderators need to confirm this, but I really think you are right. GH

    Thanks, Glenn! Got my fingers crossed!
