I know this may sound weird coming from a fan of her's but i'm REALLY dissapointed. From the last 7
) finals she has played since her comeback surgery last year she won only 1 against Monica this year in Tokio.
She started off really well lsat year coming to the final at the Morgan Chase Open to Chanda Rubin. It was expected Lindsay to win but not so sure bec. she was comming off an injury and that's exactly what happened. She was 7-5, 5-3 and couldn't close the match eding up loosing 7-5, 6-7, 3-6.
A couple of weeks later she reached the final again at the Pilot Pen Open against a strong Venus Williams, there was nothing for her to do: she was up 5-3 in the first set, but lost the next 10 games.
After a good run in the US OPEN reaching the semis, she again got to the final of the Ladies Kremlin Cup. With Venus Williams loosing in the second round against Maleeva, Lindsay seemed to have an "easy" opponent in the final. That was proven wrong it was Maleeva's good week and despite having a match point Lindsay lost 7-5, 3-6, 6-7
That was a really hard loss to take but two weeks later Lindsay reached ANOTHER final in Zurich where she had a PERFECT record except for a loss to Martina Hingis two years previously. Lindsay again lost having a good lead and 3 match points 6-7, 7-6, 6-3. In this tourney she had had an amazing win against Justine in the finals so as a good one against Clijsters in the QF. So we could say that she was pretty much all set up to win the final but....
She reached no other final that year but ended up with a loss against Monica having 7 match points left.
2003: She started off really well reaching the final of the Adidas Internation Open but again failed to win the title with an amazing Kim beating her 6-4, 6-3. Lindsay did not play "well" the final Clijsters was just too much.
A week later in the AO she could not win the 4th round match against Justine despite being down in the second set 1-4 and up in the third 4-1. Another VERY hard loss 9-7 in the third. Justine prevailed, congrats to her.
Then came the week where she actually DID won the title, against Monica even though she lost the first set.
Confidence was coming back for Lindsay and in Indian Wells she played an amazing much against Jennifer wining the semis in the third set 6-4. Later the next day she lost against Kim with a 6-4, 7-5. What happened? Lindsay did not play so well the final, her opponent was better that her. She could not keep up the level of the semis.
AND AGAIN, this week, playing Patty some "Prefect" tennis and beating Jennifer in the semis. She had a lead of 4-2 in the second against Elena but couldn't prevail and finish it. Again, it wasn't meant to be, it was Elena's week.
How long will this be repeated? Ohh no it was X week, it just wasn't meant to be. I'm really dissapointed, I hope Lindsay can talk things out with her new coach, Adams, and try to figure out a way to solve this. I though it would change this year, but apparently so, it hasn't. I don't know what to think.... it's very hard for me to write this thread, but it is just something that can't be ignored....
