Talking Indian Wells used new ranks to seed to give Hingis a better draw.

at least they tried
she could have got Pennetta or Groenefeld in 4th rd but ends up with Davenport.

had they used ranks of Feb 27, she'd have been seeded in 25-32 range and would have played top 8 seeds in 3rd rd.
i bet she would have got a better draw that way.

now 4th rd vs Davenport, cant wait for Hingis to take down Lindsay again

Good luck to my favs

Do you think Martina stands a chance against Lindsay, if they both get that far? I'm very concerned.

Yea too bad Lindz is going to mangle Martina in the 4th rnd

The woods are hopeless. Don't waste your time, they will be destroyed. So will the marsh. It is a losing game mankind has played for more than a century. Sadness is what you are, do not deny it. The universe is a lonely place, a painful place. This is what we can share between us, period.

If Martina is able to return Linds big serve,then she'll be trying to move her from one corner to another.Playing drop-shots and forcing Linds to 'running for her life' I believe she can win,but in 3 sets.

it very muchos depends on Lindsay I think... she should be able to beat Martina if she serves well and hits the ball good... if she doesn't Martina will be able to attack Lindsay's service games and make Davy run for her life.. that way Martina has achance to win in three...

if anyone knows how to handle Lindsay it's Martina.

Serena: Queen of the odd in OZ.

Venus: Please follow suit and win Wimbledon again.

I guess she was going to meet Davenport sooner or later

I think it's good she's meeting top players so often now... She'll know what she needs to do to crush them all later (except Momo, of course )!!

19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

I can't see Hingis beating Lindsay in rd4. Lindsay hits the ball so heavy and deep that she controls most rallys she plays. Hingis will have to play really brilliantly if she is to beat Lindsay.

RIP Elena Baltacha, thank you for dedicating your life to a sport we all love. You'll be missed but never forgotten.
