Come in if you ever met Lindsay...

I am so happy I saw her play twice...The first time at Madison SQ Garden when she lost to Demented at the YEC...and once at the Pilot Pen when she got bagled by Venus in the second set...then she took a pic with my nephew and and signed his oversize tennis ball...It's in his room to this day...

Re: Come in if you ever met Lindsay...

At the 2005 US Open, I waited at the practice courts for ages to get her autograph, it was really hot so I went to grab a drink, and when I got back she was gone

Then I came back at the '06 Open, didn't make the same mistake, and got her auto

Re: Come in if you ever met Lindsay...

i saw her beat defending champion novotna in the quarter-finals of wimbledon 1999. that year was the best year she has ever served at wimbledon, she went on to win it that year....

i can't believe we'll probably never see her play again but i'm happy for her at same time

I met her and Jennifer the same year. I can't believe that whole generation of US tennis players are retired or injured.

Going to have to start watching men's tennis...

Re: Come in if you ever met Lindsay...

Wow, I consider myself lucky to have finally gotten the chance to at New Haven this year. She has always been one of my top three favorites, and if this is the end, I'll miss seeing her play terribly. Nontheless, congratulations Lindsay...I'm sure she'll make a great mother!

Re: Come in if you ever met Lindsay...

I've never gotten her autograph or spoken to her, but I've seen plenty of her matches at the US Open. This news definitely makes me appreciate even more being able to see her 3r match live @ the Open this year. An already unforgettable match has been made even more special as it's probably the last time I'll see her play.

Re: Come in if you ever met Lindsay...

I saw Lindsay play 3 of her final 4 matches at Wimbledon, including the final. Moments I'll never forget.

Women's tennis sucks.

Go Rafa.

I was there at that match as well...

I stood right next to Lindsay at the US Open one year and our eyes met. Even though I'm an inch taller than her, she made me feel short....

I also saw Lindsay at this years Pilot Pen vs. JHH.....I want my money back! LOL

Re: Come in if you ever met Lindsay...

I've seen Linds play a bunch of times, the last being at this year's USO against Srebotnik. I was cheering my heart out for her (she had match points against her). Little did I know, that might have been my last time seeing her live.
My most memorable interaction with her, was giving her some fan letters from wtaworld one year down in Miami. I felt like I was looking up at a skyscraper.
I really hope she plays the USO this year, but it's probably wishful thinking.
