Question Who will the crowd support more? Monica or Lindsay?

I think this will be a great match, and I am looking forward to it. I was thinking though, will the crowd support be for more the Cali chick? Or more so for the sentimental favorite? I actually have no idea. If I HAD to place a bet, I would have to go with Seles.

A friend of mine told me that the US Open crowd was the loudest she had ever heard, when Monica faught back to win her match against Barbara Swartz.

I can't wait for this match!

I think Monica, because in the LA final last year the crowd was mostly for her. Although she's not as clearly the underdog as she was then, so things might be pretty even.

Davenport better watch out. Seles will be rejuvenated and whenever she comes back from a break she sizzles. Go seles, im dure the crowd will be behind her more.

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!

I think he was talking about Monica in the final of the LA Tier II tournament last year during the summer. I hope Monica gets the most support!

Monica, wherever she goes in the US normally the crowd go with her, i mean i seem to remember her playing in LA last year against Serena, she something like, "it was like the whole of New York was cheering her on out there"

Dunno why she said New York tho lol.
Anyway, Monica will have my cheers, and i'm in England

Also, everyone likes the underdog, even if monica is seeded above linds, for me she still seems the underdog

Here's an even tougher question, given the fact that BOTH Venus and Serena grew up on Compton, a few miles away from LA, should they meet in the finals, who would get the "home field" advantage?

Euhm..is this thread about venus and serena? I think not.

Imo Lindsay will have the advantage. She's practically playing at home.

Men när natten är ljus - I ditt sjuttiotalshus
Och du är ånga, spår av ett moln
I en dröm om att fly till någonting nytt

Och du håller så hårt och när längtan blir svår
Så är jag din, din, din att ta med
Att ta ut, att ta in i någonting nytt

last time they played in California, I thought the crowd was equally divided. I love Monica, but I'll support Lindsay.

It's too soon to aim for peace. Aim for better conflict management.

Lindsay is my girl
