The final is the king of kings that concludes the year’s world tour. In five events
including men’s and women’s singles and mixed doubles, only the eight players (teams) with the highest tour scores will participate and be divided into two groups.
After the group stage, the top two in each group will play a semi-finals tournament to determine the winner.
Kim Ga-eun, who defeated Ahn Se-young in the first game, lost 1-2 to Tai Tzu-ying in the second game.
Accordingly, Tai Tzu-ying is currently in first place in Group A with two wins, including a 2-0 win over Toonjung in the first game.
Kim Ga-eun and Ahn Se-young follow with 1 win and 1 loss. Tunjung confirmed elimination with 2 losses.
For Ahn Se-young to advance to the semifinals, she must defeat Tai Tzu-ying and then watch the results of the match between Kim Ga-eun and Tun Chung.
If Kim Ga-eun defeats Tunjung, Ahn Se-young, Tai Tzu-ying, and Kim Ga-eun will all have 2 wins and 1 loss, and the rankings will be determined based on game gains and losses.
In terms of game gains and losses until the second game
Tai Tzu-ying is +3, Kim Ga-eun is +1, and Ahn Se-young is 0, so Ahn Se-young is at the most disadvantage.
For Ahn Se-young, she needs to win 2-0 to increase her chances of advancing to the semifinals. If Kim Ga-eun loses
Ahn Se-young and Tai Tzu-ying will advance to the semifinals.
If Ahn Se-young loses in the third game and Kim Ga-eun wins, Kim Ga-eun will advance to the semifinals.
If both players lose, Tunjung and the other three will have 1 win and 2 losses.
Tunjung, whose current game gain/loss is -4, cannot surpass Ahn Se-young and Kim Ga-eun,
so Ahn Se-young and Kim Ga-eun will decide the semifinal ticket based on game gain/loss or point gain/loss.
