Does Dechy have any chance against Davenport?

I realy don't think she does but I don't want to say that Davneport will win 100% although she is the heavy favorite...

Most likely Davenport will win. But sometimes you have to watch out for these lower seeded players making it this far in a Grand Slam (ala Maria Sharapova @ Wimbledon)

Really, don't even look at me...

Maybe.... Lindsay showed some nerves today serving for the match against Molik. And she has been worn down as well. Nathalie might be able to grind her way through

but if nathalie maybe able to show good performance in the first set, or if she's on form she could winn.


Anastasia Myskina my NO.1 favourite.
Daniela Hantuchova super eyecandy!
Emilie Loit heartbreaker.
Alize Cornet she's just 15!
Elena Dementieva pretty!
Amelie Mauresmo idol!
Svetlana Kuznetsova so fuckable! ps. She was never ugly!!

All the best to:
Nathalie Dechy, Caroline Wozniacki, Justine Henin-Hardenne,
Maria Sharapova, Ana Ivanovic, Maria Kirilenko,
Marion Bartoli, Aravane Rezai, Dinara Safina,
Victoria Azarenka, Olga Poutchkova
and all the other pretty players!

I like these players because they are HAWT HAWT HAWT!

Money on Lindsay.

But Nathalie...hmm...wouldn't write her off.

She'll have to play the game of her life and then some. She has been playing some top tennis, but Lindsay simply has too much firepower and finals experience.

BUT. You just never can tell :shrugs:

Lindsay and Nathalie played each other 2 weeks ago in sydney and it was a routine win for the yank.

I really cant see how nathalie can win this, provided lindsay doesnt screw it up (tried to find a touch wood smilie, this is the best i can come up with)

Well we know Natalie is not gonna blow Lindsay off the court, so if the Frenchwoman wins, the biggest factors are gonna be how off Davenport's game is. If Dechy can stay steady, play her own game and take advantage of big points, sure she can do it.

Please go on like that people! As for 3 previous games, Nat was a sure bet to lose....I don't say Davenport won't win, she's off course the favorite but it won't be easy at all and I hope for her and her fans that her body will be ok during the whole match because Nathalie is very strong physically.
And please stop the : "Nathalie never won against Davenport so it's a mental thing....blah blah....this is all bullshit." She never won against her because Davenport was clearly the better player so it's problably not mental.
One more thing that is clearly in Nathalie's favor: look at her face, she's an happy woman and seems delighted. I like to see that. It's different from all those player babes that are always pulling a long face....

We shouldn't be doing all this talk about whether or not Dechy can trouble Davenport. Dechy said it herself in her post match interview, she's trilled to play Davenport in the semis of a grand slam. She's just that happy to be where she is right now and to play against such a true champion.
She has nothing to lose tomorrow and will be having the time of her life, so let her enjoy it.
