Did the Williames screw up Lindsay's career??

I know this is rubbish, but I need your thoughts. I can say the say about Lindsay screwing up Vee when she was consistently beating her, but I am not this childish

well ask Andrew(loveulindsay) and he will say yes and call VEnus a *itch, but thats besides the point and i don't think so, i think ultimately what it was, when she had to have surgery on the knee, she hasnt been the same since, i mean Lindsay could have very well beat Serena in the finals of wta championships if she hadn't have injured herself, but i don't think The williams have messed up Lindsay's career at all

I think Lindsay, HELPED the Williamses Career, especially Venus. She use to DOGGG Venus in Matches, Venus had no answers for her...after her wins against Lindsay, Venus was more confidence wins more credible.

you could say the same for Justine
she lost consecutively against Clijsters until she suddenly won in Berlin last year and the she went on to crush Clijsters on almost every occasion.

Well, thing I can say is that since the coming out of the Williamses Lindsay hasn´t really been much of a factor at the slams...look at all her losses at the slams since like the ´00 oz open and you´ll see the name WILLIAMS coming up an awful lot.

Still had a nice career.

Always bet on black!

Shocking isn't it? I'm tempted to even use the dreaded "O" word....OWNED

I think Venus hurt it more. 2000. Lindsay probably would have had three majors in one year. Serena has owned her, but the Venus matches were bigger matches.

In all sports there is always going to be someone bigger, badder, and just flat out better. It is up to players to adapt and adjust to beat them. I don't think the sisters have messed up Lindsay's career at all, Lindsay is still a very good player capable of winning Slams. I believe she needs to adapt to beat them, I still remember when J-Cap beat Serena on a consistant basis, and it wan't until Serena adapted did she start beating J-Cap.

Let's take a look at Lindsay's GS career.

Code:
	OZ	RG	WB	US Open
1991	-	-	-	1ST
1992	-	-	-	2ND
1993	3RD	1ST	3RD	4TH
1994	QF	3RD	QF	3RD
1995	QF	4TH	4TH	2ND
1996	4TH	QF	2ND	4TH
1997	4TH	4TH	2ND	SF
1998	SF	SF	QF	WON
1999	SF	QF	WON	SF
2000	WON	1ST	F	F
2001	SF	-	SF	QF
2002	-	-	-	SF
2003	4TH	4TH	QF	SF
2004	QF	-	-	-
In 1998, 1999, 2000, Lindsay's career was progressing nicely with a GS win every year. Then we see a decline. What happened? Hingis wasn't a factor from that point on. Who do we see in the picture? Of course there were injuries, but injuries actually visited just about all the top players. I do see the impact of the Williamses on that decline.
