Exclamation Venus & Lindsay have never MET on clay

Isn't it kinda strange that in 25 career meetings these two have never played eachother on the dirt

Anyway, if Venus wins her next match and Lindsay wins her next 2 they'll play in the quarters.

Who do you think clay favors?

I think Venus is the better clay court player and should beat Lindsay, althought Lindsay played amazingly here last year.

Oh, they've never MET on clay

For a sec I thought you were trying to say Venus and Lindsay have never played on clay by themselves

hmm, good question? I think Venus is going to take the next step in her evolution back to a top player and beat Lindsay.

Lindsay doesn't play enough Clay court events. Venus is amazing on clay though, I'm sure she'd win.

It will be truly interestnig to see this match-up, if it happens. I think Venus will have a hard time attacking the net on clay against someone with Lindsay's power. If Lindsay can move okay, she can out-rally Venus. If Venus can move Lindsay, she'll win, but that's nothing new there. Can't wait!

I don't think Lindsay has played Serena on clay either. I guess fate has just dictated that.

Until possibly this week.

I think Venus plays her best on clay @ times, Davenport hates it with a passion.... so I'd pick Venus in 2 tight sets on clay.

Serena d. Davenport 6-1 7-6 2003 Charleston for the one who asks.

Quite frankly, regardless of the surface it boils down to the same thing. Lindsay will hit everything hard to the forehand, and either Venus will make the shots or she won't.

Basically that's what happens everytime

I agree but on clay those hard heavy balls Venus will have more time to set up for getting her out of defense and on to offensive more quickly.

Lindsay should have murdered Venus at the USopen, but instead she can't get it into her head, to hit it to the forehand and get misses.

I have no idea what Lindsay's been doing since the final of IW. Hopefully she'll be feeling better losing to Kim (after she treated this Miami field like they stole her lucky pair of underwear from the Indian Wells hotel suite)

This quarter should be good, provided Lindsay can remember who she beat and how she played in the final last year

Women's tennis sucks.

I think it will be a tough three-setter, but I think Vee will pull it out, not because she's my fav, but because Venus loves green clay. She does very well on it and it allows her to be more aggressive to come into the net. Whereas, I've heard that Lindsay's not too fond of clay. Anyway, one way or the other, it will be a good match. My v-Cash is on Vee though.

Lindsay's won a few clay court titles so she'll be tough. This match, if it happens, could go either way but I'll give Venus the edge because she's quicker (for lack of a better reason, sorry).
