... if in WCH Round Robin Final 1 two or more participants will be having 4/6 points. Who will be the opponent of Gino Figlio in this case?

I think the player with the higher entry rating in that stage.

Is that fair? I mean, in that case it's the lower rated players that have performed better overall?

Highest TER qualifies

Dinesh is right. There was many discussions to justify this rule in the forum. Statistically (for correspondence chess) the rating may be more important than performance to know who has more chances to win a tournament. Anyway this is only a rule.
