Harder than everyone on tour...that is when she is on top of the ball..She hits a heavy ball as you can see.The thing is that she doesn't do it on a consistent basis.Agree or disagree?

um...actually we can't really see if someone is hitting a really heavy ball or not. all we can see is the speed, but i don't think that she does. i mean we can't measure their heaviness, but i mean we have to put both Williamses, Clijsters, Dokic, Seles, Capriati, Davenport, and a few others in the same boat and say that they all pretty much equally hit as fast/hard as eachother give or take a little bit

Lindsay's offense is the best in the game IMHO- by a long shot. (well, that is kind of an exaggeration, but she does hit it harder than anyone else I think)

The problem is that her defense is almost literally non-existant, so when her opponent comes up with a great counter punching shot (like Kim/Venus/Serena do often), she is left in the dust. If Lindsay doesn't control the rallies first, she looses. If she lets go of control before winning, she looses. She needs to hit hard early and keep sending it to the corners to win.

This is why it is getting more and more difficult for her to beat Kim. Kim has about a half dozen different ways to dig herself out of a hole when she's on defense, Lindsay can only wait to be finished off.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.
