World Tour Finals 2013 - Qualification Scenarios (Group B)

Group B of the 2013 World Tour Finals - including Novak Djokovic, Juan Martin Del Potro, Roger Federer and Richard Gasquet - ended its second day of matches with similar results to those of Group A (check the link for scenarios). We have player who won his two matches, two players with one win, and one player who lost both his matches and won't be able to qualify, no matter what.

Saturday's matches are Djokovic-Gasquet and Del Potro-Federer. Here are the qualification scenarios for every possible outcome of those matches (winner + number of sets):


Del Potro in 2 Del Potro in 3 Federer in 3 Federer in 2
Djokovic in 2 1. Djokovic
2. Del Potro

So really, there are only two scenarios and it's all super simple:
  • Djokovic already qualified from the 1st place.
  • The winner of Federer-Del Potro will qualify from 2nd place. The number of sets doesn't matter!
