Lindsay Davenport vs Serena Williams - first time on Clay!

How do you think both players will fare in their first encounter on clay?

I actually think Lindsay may have a chance, if she can hang with Serena in the long rallies, and mix up play. The key for me is Davenport's attitude. If she remains positive, she will challenge Serena.

I still say Serena will win, but Davenport's attitude and her ability to stay in rallies will determine how lopsided the score is.

I heard from friends who watched Davey's previous matches that her attitude is better right now coz she still stayed positive even though she lost her serve twice in a row.... go Linds!

after watching Lindsay struggle against Znoreva last night, I would say Lindsay has no chance against Serena.

Madame Oracene Williams could certainly teach the French & Belgian crowds on how to upgrade their respective primitive behaviours during a tennis match.

linds in two

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

granting that she didn't struggle, then for sure Serena would make her struggle in all departments of the game.

Thumbs up Lindsay will win!

Lindsay will manage to get past Serena in three sets. Whoever wins, it will be a WONDERFUL match to see!

It would be a one-sided match and it's all according to Queen Serena.

whew... pretty glad I have BasicTennis ignored since he's here we all know how "UNBIASED" and "FAIR" s/he is ....

I say Serena in three, although I would love for Lindsay to pull it out.

If Serena plays 70% it'll be over in 2 sets in the 6-3 6-4 area

if not, well, then we'll see
