YES, because Lindsay and the Williams fans have always gotten along ---you just haven't been around long enough to realize it

I can't speak for all fans, but she gets an A+ from me.

She was the best player in 2004 and still going strong.

I love to see her winning, except for when it's Venus or Serena.
She pretty much swept Venus and Serena among others in 2004.

I don't know, I like Lindsay a lot, but of course I would've been very disappointed for venus after all that hard work. But I would have gongratulated Lindsay and would have been happy for her
When Lindsay's playing any one else I'm very Sad when she loses and I hope she does really well the rest of the season

Ser ena the best and coolest in the world along with this person: Venus Williams

If LD had won yesterday, would Devil be so obviously seeking attention?

If you read many posts by fans of Venus (and Serena) that praised Lindsay, a lot of them talked about the level of play, intensity during the match. Both players were applauded for their efforts and to this date I haven't seen one that attacked either Venus or Lindsay's play unless it was someone trying to discredit both or someone upset their favorite wasn't in the final. A lot more admiration came after the match and that was based on reactions of both players but also a sense of loss for Lindsay. That wasn't false and I have a hard time thinking that sentiment would have been turned into something negative if the opposite result had occured. When it's a good match and either player could have won you're hard pressed to be a negative person and I would like to think that the reactions would be the same by Lindsay fans if Venus had lost too.

I've never understood why it's okay to be mean and offensive instead of exhibiting respect and admiration.

I think she's getting praise from everyone including Venus fans because of the way in which she lost the match. Neither Lindsay or Venus deserved to lose that match and although they're ecstatic for Venus I think everybody is gutted for Lindsay at the same time.

A lot of Venus fans are Lindsay fans like myself, so it would've been great if Lindsay won as well. Some one-dimensional people can't understand that though

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

i wasnt so gutted when she lost the AO - cos she got trampled over in the end and didnt fight.

Here she fought to the bitter end and it could have gone either way at any time. its a shame they had to stop when lindsay did her back in

LINDSAY DAVENPORT!
Say what you like about Davenport, but shes achieved what most others could only dream of!

Always trying to start trouble.

the answer is yes.

when she lost to Serena and no Williams fans (and definitely no Williams Haters ) praised her because of the way she lost.

this time in losing to Venus, Lindsay played like a champion; so there only reason she's getting praise is because she deserves it.

I believe most people who have heaped praise on her said she deserved to win...instead of attacking Williams fans you should give us credit.

When we see real class (a rare event), we praise it.

If your fave's coach isn't Richard Williams, that's just her first problem...

No, it's just that some people are so young and full of hate that they'll try to discredit certain tennis players and their fans in any way they can, no matter how irrational it may seem.
