Formation of the Groups for World Tour Finals, 2012:
The players are distributed in to 2 groups. With the first seeded player in Group-A & the second seeded player in the Group-B. Players seeded three and four, five and six, seven and eight, were then drawn in pairs placing the first drawn in Group A.
How many points are stake at World Tour Finals, 2012
The players get 200 points each for every round robin match win. (So, in the group stage, maximum points that a player can get is 600 points).
