Re: Serena about Lindsay; I've always liked her, I miss her
i seriously doubt that
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!
