Cool How long till Billie Jean starts hounding Lindsay to play WTT?

You just know BJK won't let Lindsay alone once that baby is born! She MUST get her to play WTT; it's a religion to BJK, and she's its Creator AND its Sustainer. But when will she start her campaign?

Re: How long till Billie Jean starts hounding Lindsay to play WTT?

OMG I was just thinking about this earlier.


I think BJK has already phoned Lindsay to say congrats on the ankle biter and end of her career.

I'm going to say when Lindsay's in labor. BJK will be walking the hallways listening on doors for that voice and those cusswords.

But I would LOVE it if Lindsay comes back and plays WTT. That would be fantastic.

Re: How long till Billie Jean starts hounding Lindsay to play WTT?

Can you imagine if she came back and played doubles a la Nav?

I still want that AO title

Re: How long till Billie Jean starts hounding Lindsay to play WTT?

Considering there's a WTT team right in her hometown, I wouldn't be surprised if she plays a couple of home matches in '08...she won't really be in a position to do so next year having just given birth.

As far as travelling with the team for the whole three week show though? Absolutely not.

I know and she kept changing partners too.
I still find it funny that she won the French in doubles but could never ever get the AO.

And I think she may be pursaded to play WTT in 2008 or something, but yeah she'll only play home matches.

Re: How long till Billie Jean starts hounding Lindsay to play WTT?

I chose the option whre Billie Jean King got on the phone yesterday to call the pregnant Lindsay Davenport. Well Billie Jean is legendary for being a proactive person and this is an example of that.

Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap. - William Bennett

Re: How long till Billie Jean starts hounding Lindsay to play WTT?

I would hope she would give her at least a years time with the baby and her family.

Re: How long till Billie Jean starts hounding Lindsay to play WTT?

I'd say the 3rd option was the nearest to being right: A week before the baby is born! Good Luck Lindsay

Bump!

The right answer is : About 2 weeks after the baby is born
