Serena about Lindsay; I've always liked her, I miss her

Quote:
Q. Could you talk a little about Lindsay, the fact she's moving on, having a baby.

SERENA WILLIAMS: I've always liked Lindsay. Lindsay and I always got along really well. I miss her. I was watching TV. They were showing some highlights. I noticed they had just like a picture of Lindsay returning serve. I was like, Oh.

You know, I know she's happy. She's had a fabulous career. She was so consistent. I like Lindsay a lot. She will be missed, for sure, especially by me.


Q. What do you think Lindsay's legacy will be in terms of her game and the way she played it?

SERENA WILLIAMS: Like I said, Lindsay was extremely consistent - a little more consistent than I was or, geez, am, was, whatever. She was extremely consistent. She was always in the top five-ish. We've had some great matches.

I think she'll just have a great legacy. She was a great American player. Obviously won several Grand Slams, singles and doubles. A lot of people don't play doubles any more.

It was awesome. She did good.
Nice words about Lindsay Serena, very classy.

I think they got along better than Linzi and Venus, yet Venus und Lindsay had the more dramatic matches IMO.

Thank you for all these moments over the last years! Supported you until your final point!

Re: Serena about Lindsay; I've always liked her, I miss her

Lindsay was so great...These days I have to think about the Open 2 years ago when she was able to fight her way to the final...it was so horrible to watch these matches

Lindsay said that she exchanged email with Serena for a long time at Amelia Island 2004.
Lindsay made a call and thanked to Serena after Serena beat Amelie Mauresmo to help Lindsay hold year-end-NO.1

I think they are good friends.

No - actually they had Lindsay on the air after Serena won that match. I remember it - it was the YEC 2004 when Serena beat Amelie in 3 sets and Lindsay held on to the number one ranking. First Serena was on the air and was congratulating Lindsay and said, "Yay - an American is number one! Congrats Lindsay!" It almost sounded like Serena wanted to win not just to get to the finals, but to help Lindsay hang on. Then Lindsay came on the air and said something like, "That was really nice. I've always been a fan of hers." It was a great exchange.

Lindsay and Serena have always gotten along great. Their matches were always intense, but the handshake afterwards was always nice. I remember the US Open 2001 when Serena won in three sets - they were both smiling and congratulating one another afterwards. It was so great to see. And when Serena won the Aussie in '05 - she gave Lindsay major props, and I thought that was really cool too. Lindsay is going to be missed by everyone. She's had a great career, although I do wish she could have won just one more Slam! But nonetheless, she's got nothing to hang her head about. We love ya Lindsay!
