Lindsay seems to be in a nice form
and it's hardcourt


That should be hers...

I'm surprised I'm actually able to post in a Pierce0415 thread. My computer has been a little allergic to them lately, freezing for some reason.
Anywho. Lindsay seemed quite happy last week right after the draw was shown.
This is probably why. She's playing three straight players who can't tolerate Lindsay's flat deep grounstrokes in Srebotnik, Schiavone, and Amelie.
She couldn't ask for a better draw. As good as Amelie has been in the last couple of months she hasn't beaten her toughest opponent, Lindsay.
She gets her chance but I doubt she will be able to do. Lindsay in two.

"Everybody always said I didn't get that job because my wife is white. If you're not strong enough to look through that then you have the issue."

Something needs to change.

Lindsay is not her toughest opponent. Shes actually beaten Lindsay more than once.
Other than that, I agree.

Interesting match up Ameile has been in great form of late and this is the first time Lindsay has played her since her two grand slam wins. We will find out in this match how mentally tough Ameile really is or does Lindsay still get in her head before they even step on the court. I don't think this will be a push over match I'll take Lindsay in 3 sets.

Amelie has taken one set off Lindsay in 5 years and 10 matches (two = walkovers, though.) I wouldn't be surprised in the slightest if Mauresmo wins, but I'm gonna go with my girl Linds in two.

3 times out of 14 and you don't call Lindsay a tough opponent I think she is look at the results of late. Up a set and a break of serve in the Wimbledon semi final last year and still lost and Lindsay didn't have to play great to beat her either.

Lindsay has a great chance to win with Amelie. Amelie didn't show nothing special against the Russian girl. Lindsay please win it and defend your title here!

Swiss champs.
