Question Can Nadia or Svetlana Beat Lindsay?

One of them is going to be a semifinalist and I wonder if either one of them can pose a challenge to Lindsay. Convential widsom says Nadia can because of her big win over Justine tonight but she has been too inconsistent in my bood to even consider her. And I can't see Svetlana trying to return one of Lindsay's deep serves.

I think Sveta would have to best chance. She can rally more consistently than Nadia, and she can move Davenport. Plus she has been serving better than Petrova

Tatiana Golovin, Timea Bacsinzky, Petra Kvitova, Kristina Mladenovic, Laura Robson

I really don't think so, cos Lindsay is really hot right now and it is going to take someone playing the best tennis of their life to beat her this time around. She is the heavy favorite going into the final.

Justine's always got the fight in her


Serena's always got it. Never underestimate the heart of a Champion

of course they have chances, but i totally expect lindsay to make it, however, she has come up short in the last few major matches when she had chances, anyway, i say lindsay MUST be favorite

It will always be Arantxa, hall of famer! and martina hingis and kim clijsters - amazing legends
ana ivanovic and the italian girls, especially pennetta (forza azzurre! RG CHAMP FRANCESCA AND FINALIST SARA!)
aga, vika, sam, na in the next tier

Can? Yes. Will? I dunno. I saw Kuznetsova play today, and her serve was really on. She is not the best returner, however. So I think if she is at her top it will come down to at least one tiebreak, which gives her a shot. Petrova played a different Davey last year. I think that she really could've one that match if she played smarter. However this is a better Davey, and Petrova might be out of Ashe quickly if she is not at her top.

Lindsay's head went into choke mode today as she served it out - she pulled it back helped by Venus errors. Sveta at her best this USO is serving well. Her UE count is low and she is is faster than most. Depends if she can get the returns back, keep cool and serve well and if Lindsay's head blows as it did at wimbledon in a similar situation.

Come to think of it Nadia and Mary are pretty good practice for playing lindsay wheras Lindsay will be playing asagoe"

Lol well, Asagoe's first serves barely hit 90 mph. Lindsay will rape them sideways.

I saw Asagoe play Eleni today; she'll be lucky to get two games off of Lindsay and I am talking about the entire match.

True, Asagoe first.

But Sveta is a mini-Clijsters and remember who Lindsay lost to last year. And Petrova has weapons of her own which have helped her to challenge Davenport on a few occassions in the past, although not beat her yet. I think if Davenport does face one of them in the semis, it could definitely be close but experience and confidence are in Lindsay's favor, plus greater consistency.
