Reliving the past...

It is cold and rainy outside today, so there is nothing better to do than watch some old matches! And lucky me, I received an order today that includes 6 matches: Lindsay's 3 grand slam final wins, Lindsay over Seles in the semis of the 98 Acura, Lindsay over Venus in the semis of the 99 Advanta and Lindsay over Hingis in the final of the 99 Sydney.

Most of these matches I've never seen so it is so exciting to watch them, even if I know who is going to win! Every time I see a great point I want to run on here and say "OMG did you guys see that?!" but of course since they happened 5 or 6 years ago, you probably wouldn't remember.

If you're looking for matches on tape and cannot find them, go here: http://www.users.bigpond.com/tennisvideos1/ You will be very pleased; the woman I'm dealing with is so wonderful, she even sent me a free photograph of Lindsay after her win at AO in 2000 because she could tell from my order that I am a huge Lindsay fan.

Also, if it's a crappy day outside and you have nothing better to do, then pull out some good tapes and watch some good tennis!

Being a Lindsay fan it's best to relive the past, because the future looks bleak

The last time I checked, having a record of 14-1 to start a year is not so bleak

Last year was by far her worst in a looong time and even then she finished 47-15. What kind of record do you expect her to have this year? Would you like to make a little wager?

By the way, who's your favorite player?

You didn't answer my questions. If you tell me what kind of record you expect her to have, then we can make a bet.

I do not have a favorite player

Lindsay will not reach further than the quarters of any other major this year or any other year in her career

she'll cry off injured around september, and won't be seen again until the new year 2005

her record will be worse than last years, hows this, will that do?

Consider yourself lucky to not have a favorite Canadian player because tennis looks bleak in Canada, as it always has.

And yes, that bet will do just fine for me. It's up to you as to what we bet. I don't want to take away your allowance

no problem; to be honest I dont know if I gave you good or bad rep points but whatever

Consider it a done deal - I'll be looking out for you at the end of the season to collect my money

You know rightly what you gave me. Do not act surprised.

I doubt you’ll be around at the end of the year, you’ll be too embarrassed to admit I was right.

actually I was pretty sure I gave you bad rep but the way you acted in response made it seem like I accidentally gave you good ones

and seeing as how I've been on this board for years, chances are highly likely that I'll be here at the end of the year; I will have no problem admitting that you were right if it so turns out that way, but I highly doubt it will - then again, that's why we have the bet in the first place now isn't it?

By the way I didn't mean to come across as an ass but it is not a good idea to come onto a message board and disrespect players; other than that, welcome to wtaworld
