CAN Lindsay win the US Open!?

With all likelihood that Venus and Serena WILL be in the same 1/2 of the draw, and the possibility that Kim could eventually lose in the 1/4's to Amelie Mauresmo, her probable opponent, could this be Lindsay's last good bite at the apple? I say yes!

Outside of the Williams Sisters and Kim, I would like to believe that a modestly healthy Davenport has a more than fair chance of defeating the remainding players (she has a winning record against the the rest) She's got all the weapons, and experience, to take this title! She's just got to have the inner belief that she can do this this!

I believe that Lindsay has 3 more Slams left in her!

Three more!

I think she can, but only if she has to beat Venus, and not Serena along the way. Serena has Davenport's number, and has for years. Lindsay just doesn't like playing Serena (not that many people do)

The second set at Wimbledon versus Venus was good to see- Lindsay back to her old form for a little bit. She needs to work on her fitness to get it back.

Funny to see fans "lighting candles" hoping Serena and Venus cancel ea. other out so thier favs. might, just might have a chance to win. LOL

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

Linds and Cappy both have one more slam in them each IMHO. I think Linds can do it at this years Open, but Cap can't because she doesn't believe she can. If I had to bet on one of them winning a slam, it would sadly be Lindsay though . She has the serve, and does better against the top players.

As long as she doesn´t have to face a Williams she can, but what are the odds for that happening?! Too bad, but the Williamses own her and BAD!

Long as she doesn't face a Williams. She can perhaps squeak a win on one of them but she can't do it to both. It's too much work to beat both of them in the same tourney. This goes for Kim C and Cap.
Really Lindsay's is now in the mindset of leaving the sport at this point.

The open will be different from the other 3 slams - the Sisters will definately be in the same 1/2 of the draw. No doubt about that - New Yorkers don't play that crap! Another All-Williams Final? Not in our backyard!

The draw has to work in Lindsay's favour. She needs either Justine or Kim in her 1/4's. If it's justin (fingers crossed), I can see her easily dismissing her in straight sets! In so doing, I suspect that she and Kim will meet in one semi; Venus and Serena in the other. Now, if Lindsay can get by Kim, which should be easy if kim's forehand goes to sleep, as it normally does in big matches, I would suspect that she will await an error-proned Williams, hopefully Venus!

Between us girls, I believe that Lindsay thinks that she has a better chance against Venus. I mean, hasn't she beaten Venus, like, 10 times or something!? She's definately knows out to play her!

She can do this!

The opponent doesn´t matter?! Well, it has been more than two years since Lindsay has taken a set off either Williams on hardcourts. She can surely beat Kim, Justine or even Jen....Venus and Serena will be a whole different ballgame though!

No, Lindsay will never win another slam in her career. Sorry. Shes not physically fit to compete with the William Sisters or Kim. An injured Venus can run faster than a fit Davenport.

I hate to say it, but Lindsay proved at AO and Wimbledon that she can't do it.
