Thumbs up Lindsay knows it all

From CNN: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/ten...port_wta_reut/

LOS ANGELES, Nov 5 (Reuters) -- The WTA Championships may be the richest tournament in women's tennis, but Lindsay Davenport said Tuesday that no one knew what the event was or who was playing in the $3 million season-ending extravaganza.

"It's our fifth major and the people don't understand that," said Davenport, who will meet fellow American Monica Seles in a first-round clash on Wednesday. "When you keep moving it around, it's hard for people to know what it is.

"I've heard a lot of people say, 'I'm going to the Staples Center,' but they're not quite sure what it is or who's playing.

"That's when you've got to try and establish a foundation and keep it in one place for a couple of years.

"I think they [the tennis officials] really don't have a five-year plan. They don't really know what's going to happen, and we have to figure it out as soon as possible."


Lindsay for president ! (of the WTA)

The mens' championships have a similar problem. Last year (in Sydney) all people cared about was that they got to see the Hewitt-Rafter match. Most people didn't even know which tournament it was

Possible career for Lindsay when she retires from tennis? She would be a great person for the job. I just love how she tells it like it is and doesn't seem to give a fuck if she gets criticised for it

Careful with the rush to cannonize "Saint" Lindsay, from time to time she speaks out of both sides of her mouth.

Too bad Lindsay doesn't know how to win.
