Will Lindsay final overcome her mental hump against the "Belgian Sisters" today?
She's lost to Henin-Hardenne four times in a row and six times in a row to Kim Clijsters. She hasn't beaten either of them in at least three years now. While she's always been competitive in her losses, I get the feeling she really doesn't BELIEVE she can beat them anymore.
She's got her best chance to do so in quite some time today though. Henin-Hardenne is still going cautiously in her comeback, and although she's playing well hasn't returned to full form. A complete choke by Sharapova was the only reason she got a set against her in Miami. Lindsay is playing the best clay court tennis of her career at the moment, but it's her worst surface while it's Justine's preferred choice.
What do you all think? My guess is that Davenport gets over the hill in a tight three setter- 6-2 5-7 6-4. It'll take Davenport a few match points, maybe even serving it out more than once...but she'll get it done.
