Lindsay joined Elite Club!

Just forgot to mention earlier: Lindsay defeated Venus and Serena back to back. There are only a few players who did that. I know Steffi (Sydney), Hingis (Australian Open) and Arantxa (Sydney).... Anyone else?

Congratulations Lindsay!

Lindsay did not beat Venus!! So she is really not in the club. But congratulation anyway on the win.

My Reason For Living Is Too See Venus Dominate In 2007!!!!

Lindsay and Kim doesn't count as they won by retired.

Aussie circuit is the only a player can defeated both in same week!

Stefanie Graf Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario Martina Hingis


Inspiration is for amateurs


Faves: Mona Barthel / Samantha Stosur / Roberta Vinci

technically it still counts as a win if she retired...if it were a w/o it wouldn't count.

So if I would always retire when I'm matchpoint down I could say I never lost a match in my life? I don't think so...

That's an elite club, but not as elite as being a Best Actress Oscar winner!

Got that right!

What a testiment to the Sister's that their
is a coveted club just for those who've had
the honor of defeating them back-to-back.
Umm...no matter the circumstance.

if there is an elite club in beating V + S - what does make Venus and Serena?

Btw I wasn't aware Venus retired match point down.....

A retirement is a defeat, so Lindsay defeated both Venus and Serena at the same event.

Howeber, unless my information is incorrect, the last two to do it (Hingis and Clijsters) have not beaten them since, so that's a positive for Venus and Serena.
