Lindsay is one lucky woman

She was so lucky in this match. All her balls catching the outside of the lines, all the calls going her way. Alicia deserved to win the match. And if all this is not enough, she is playing Dechy tomorrow not Patty. Davenport is already in the finals let me tell you. She is sooo LUCKY.

Alicia lost, let it go!! Actually I preferred Lindsay to win. I'm tired of the American commentators having an orgasm over everything Alicia.

She certainly got lucky when Alicia's ace at 7-7, 40-30 got called out.

I think that Alicia was lucky with her backhand mishits in the middle of the important rally going straight on the lines

Considering Lindsay has aimed for the lines her whole career, you can't really call her shots hitting them 'luck'. That's where she's trying to hit them. And regardless of if Alicia 'deserved' to win, Lindsay desrved it more. Cause she got it, and no one can say she didn't give max effort to get it.

Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Luck has nothing to do with it. Davenport has always driven the ball deeper than any other woman.

Both QF are interesting if you look at the stats. Apart from a small advantage on first serves in, Patty and Alicia both had better stats. They lost because they didn't convert breaks. Patty got 2/15 (yes 2) and Alicia 4/15.

That suggests their opponents either defended well or they couldn't win the point and missed when they really needed to win a key point.

Given that Nat got past 2 higher seeds who were playing poorly while she was consistent and one who couldn't convert when she hit 50 UE and Lindsay is playing at her 2000 level and then at her worst in successive games, i wouldn't bet against a Dechy-Serena final. it could be very quick.

No, Alicia still needs to grow as a player.

Alica had won 13 matches on the trot! There is your bad luck. maybe she should have skipped hopman so her 13th win would have been on the final's day!
This girl really is the real deal!

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Of course, Lindsay was lucky. Any woman who wins 9-7 in the third has got to be lucky. Basically, at that stage they prove to be pretty much equal on that day. Only luck then can call a winner; and luck did it for Lindsay. This is in effect what people mean when they say a match "could have gone either way".

Congrats, Lindsay!
Superb effort, Alicia!

That ace that Alicia hit that was called out was crucial and heartbreaking...it was smack on the line...that linesperson is gonna have nightmares when he/she realizes that they fucked up and cheated their own player

Luck had nothing to do with it. Lindsay is the No.1 player in the world! That said, Alicia WAS very unlucky to have that ace that WAS good called out. But things like that happen all the time...
