I thought they were behind Elena because they wanted to see a 3rd set.

I dunno, I didn't even hear the crowd.

They were as dead as can be throughout the final, except for the last game or so.

IMO there were some people screaming Lindsay's name but in truth they were very well behaved and I thought they were all for Lindsay but considering how well Elena fought I think they had no idea who to cheer for!!

I think they are a bit moderate. Lindsay is a absolute favor but not as dominate as Serena or Venus throughout the match.

Yup it was right in the front. At first I thought that was just a huge stuffed animal but freaked me out when it started moving. lmao

I find the crowd to be pretty dead as oppose to last years final between Venus and Justine. The crowd was on they feet. I guess the W/S brings out the best in the crowd watching that match I did not even think people were in the stand.

Crowd was for Lindsay more for than Elena! But we know why the, the crowd will root for the American white counter part as oppose to Venus and Serena. Then you'll hear Pam the robot state: well the crowd likes to root for the underdog. lmao!
