Lindsay really brings out the best of Williams...

As a Lindsay's fan, it is really hurt to watch a semifinal of Wimbledon like this.
And it is obvious that Venus and Serena raise their levels when they meet Lindsay. e.x, that tiebreaker alone, Lindsay should not have any problems when Venus was that nervous.
But this is tennis, people motivate people to improve. Imagine the Williams sisters were never around, what could Lindsay achieve?
Thanks Lindsay and Venus for bringing us some many high-quality and exciting matches!

Yea, I was thinking just the other day how sad it was that Lindsay got hurt because she could have made a serious run at Wimbledon. The match today could have been Venus/Lindsay part 30-something

I believe Venus has played 2 matches over 3 hours (without interruption) and both were with Lindsay. Lindsay won the first (somewhere in California I believe) and of course Venus won Wimbledon a few years ago. I suspect both ladies would consider the other as among (if not THE) their most formidable opponent in their careers.

Re: Lindsay really brings out the best of Williams...

it is more the best out of venus, against Serena she was often beaten, she was more competitve against serena when serena was returning from injury

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Agreed
Serena usually plays like shit against Lindsay.
Maria brings out the best out of Venus on grass.

Somebody must be smoking some grass, and it ain't the one on center court.

Re: Lindsay really brings out the best of Williams...

I think Serena has an issue for those so-called pretty girls, i.e. Maria, Ana and Anna...
On the contrary, she is tied with Jankovic...
As for Lindsay, if she does not bring out the best of Serena's, she should have more wins than just 3.
The 2001 US QF is a good example, back in the days when Lindsay did not tank when things go against her.

Re: Lindsay really brings out the best of Williams...

I think by "best" some folks mean "a more competitive match" because a variety of players bring out the "best quality" tennis from Venus and Serena. Like Maria for Serena anywhere; Maria for Venus on grass; yes, Lindsay for Venus on hard; and perhaps Justine for Venus on hard if she hadn't retired...

Someone is quietly turning back the clock...to them bulldozer dayz...

Always on the lookout for a great tennis match.

Re: Lindsay really brings out the best of Williams...

If the William sisters weren't around, I reckon Lindsay could've & should've won a hell of a lot more GS titles. But they r around, which imo, makes the womens' competition a lot more interesting.

HANTUCHOVA // IVANOVIC // DELLACQUA // KIRILENKO // SAFINA // AZARENKA // ZVONAREVA
and more!

So I guess Serena doesn't consider Jankovic a pretty girl I knew I loved Serena for a reason.

Really, don't even look at me...
