Basing my pick on today's matches - Lindsay.
Basing my pick on R1-R3 - Lindsay.
Basing my pick on Summer 2004 - Lindsay.
Basing my pick on all 2004 - Lindsay.

So, I'll say Venus wins.

I want Venus to win, but I would not be surprised it Lindsay did.

BTW, if Venus wins, she gets to the final; if Lindsay does, Justine gets to the final.

I really truly want Venus to win, but I love Lindsay and want the best for her and would be happy if she won as well. I'm looking forward to this match---a rare occasion for me.

If they keep the level of tennis that they're playing at the moment, then Lindsay will win. If Venus steps it up she KNOWS how to beat Lindsay and really gave her a stiff challenge in the Stanford final which could have gone either way. If Venus picks it up and cleans up her forehand, then I can see Venus winning.

No.

The winner of this match goes on to face either Eleni Daniilidou or Asagoe (this was Myskina's quarter). I think either one of them can beat the both of them, but if Justine gets through to the semifinals, as I expect her to, I think Venus' chances are better at beating Justine than Lindsay as I believe Venus has a better GS SF record than Lindsay does (and a better record against Justine).

Lindsay had never beaten Venus for years before this summer but went on to beat her twice in two tournaments. I see no reason why the same shouldn't hold true in case of Venus v/s Justine

The last full match they played had two tiebreakers. I wouldn't be at all surprised if they played three this time.

Davenport is playing really good so that would give her the edge. Venus knows she is the underdog and I think Venus will prevail. I know she played a ugly match against Rubin, but I saw some positives. Venus is building her confidence little by little and that's what she really needs now!

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

I like Lindsay's chances. She's on a roll winning twenty straight matches including one over V. Besides Venus made far too many errors tonight and Lindsay will make her pay by playing smarter and bigger than Chanda on the important points. I see a close match but Lindsay prevailing.
