Question Chanda Out, Will Lindsay Follow Her Out As Well?

Well, Chanda just lost 6-4, 6-4. Will Lindsay suffer the same fate?

well from my point of view: "let's hope so", but if she hadn't been playing els: "hell noooo"

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

Exclamation

I'd unfortunately have to agree. If Els can give Serena a hard time and Serena can beat Lindsay pretty easily at times, I think Els has a chance at a upset.

It had nothing to do w/the wind. She played a crappy match, it's not her first time playing on that court, she was the first player to play there when it opened. She's lacking match play, and it showed.

"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. "

I wish you would check the draw. Alexandra is on the bottom half which means she will play tomorrow, against Emilie Loit, who beat her earlier this year.

Not necessarily, Serena-Callens match up may be like the Dementieva Justine or maleeva-venus ones, full of trouble for only that player. Lindsay would probably not break a sweat against Els if she is pain free.

As for Chanda, what a wasted opportunity to get to the quaters or semis considering that Lindsay's health is suspect. Will she ever forgive herself!

that makes no sense at all

according to you someone like kapros would easily beat venus on clay cause oh oh kapros beat henin and she has beaten venus before

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

If I am not mistaken, the match between Kapros and Justine went three sets, so it wasn't that easy.

The point is, dumbass, is that anyone can be beaten, just like Chanda was today.

of course anyone can be beaten. where did i say the contrary?

another point is that some people are able to have decent discussions without calling eachother names

I don't get why people keep talking about Els like she is in the top 5 or something. She played one great match against Serena at Wimby, and all of the sudden she gives Rena a hard time.

I loved the first Wimbeldon match between them because it was a classic where Serena really did earn her win, but I don't think Els/Serena is a tough match for Serena anymore.

Too bad for Chanda, but those are the breaks. She just wasn't prepared. Chanda rarely loses in the first round of a slam these days, so I guess she just has to rest that shoulder and move on.

Also, I do feel that Lindsays days are numbered. It's too bad, because I really wanted her to win the title but with the injury it's impossible for her.
