Your favourite lindsay match(es) ever

Although she lost, mine has to be the wimbledon final 2005 against venus. it had it all: two great champions battling it out, match points on both sides, injury, high quality power hitting with winners, drama

i will also remember her 1999 quarter-final win over pierce at the US open. saving those match points and grinding it out to the end. great fighting from a defending champion

Re: Your favourite lindsay match(es) ever

Indian Wells 2005
when she crushed sharapova 6-0 6-0 in the semis

such a clean striker of the ball

that sound she makes with her racquet is unmatched

Re: Your favourite lindsay match(es) ever

When she defeated Kim at the French last year. Unbelievable. I didn't get up to livescore it because I was so nervous. When I did, and I checked the scores on wtatour.com, I fell to the floor in shock when it said Lindsay won. It was the only match she's ever won (in my time period of being a fan--Sept. 03) that I literally was running through the house as if I were a 5 year old on Christmas morning.

And the last gut match she won, against Srebotnik at the Open this year. Absolutely living and dying with every point. Classic stuff.

That's what I'll miss the most.

Re: Your favourite lindsay match(es) ever

Of the ones that I've seen, it would have to be her win over Kim at Wimbledon in 2005, amazing quality from start to finish (apart from the slight wobble in the second set ), followed by the Wimbledon final that year (God, that was some fortnight )

Third, for the hell of it, the double bagel

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

Re: Your favourite lindsay match(es) ever

Wow, am I the first to mention her Wimbledon final in '99? I was supporting Graf but it was such an amazing match from Lindsay that I couldn't help but be happy for her.

Re: Your favourite lindsay match(es) ever

Actually I have a match request, Anyone have the 1998 Chase Final Davenport/Hingis? I have never seen it!

I also wanted to add the Tokyo 2001 final, amazing stuff in the 3rd again by Davenport!

Yes, I too was supporting Graf but Davenport's serve was so perfect and beautiful that day! Steffi seemed a bit stiff but still, Lindsay closed the deal that day with rigor!
