what does Monica have to do to beat DAVENPORT?

OK.. so Monica's record against Davenport isn't great, but what does Monica need to do to win?? The last time I saw a Seles Vs Davenport match was Wimbledon 1999 QF... and the score was 6-7 6-4 6-0, Monica ran out of steam, Monica knows how to beat her but it will have to be in two sets or three pretty fast sets.

Both aren't the greatest movers, but both are the the best strikers out there, so it's goin to be who comes up with the shots. Monica will need to be prepared to use more angles to drive Davenport off the court on her way to VICTORY!

GO MONICA

Monica wont have to do much. Linds have no motivation and move worst than Rosane Barr. Lindsay is falling and cant get up...

Well I don´t think Monica has a chance at all, look Davenport´s victories this year includes wins over Rubin, Dokic, Danilodou, Mauresmo, Mykina, Clijsters, Henin. players that have done quite well in the latter part of the year.

Here are Monica´s wins after Wimbledon Barbara Shwartz, Nagyova and Tanasugarn her best wins after wimbledon.

Yes Lindsay has been choking some in those finals she has played, but for her record she has not lost before the quarters, and that was just once, when she lost to Kim in Filderstat, since them all tournaments have been semis or better.


In order for Monica to win she has to get lot of first serves in, plus have a good returning off Lindsay´s serves. Lindsay to lose has to be on a pretty off day serving an make quite more errors off the ground. Lindsay´s game along with the sisters is the game that hurst Monica, cause Monica does not defend well and they (Lindsay and etc..) hit pretty big off their serves and groundies. Monica´s last win over Lindsay was in 97, a Lindsay that moved pretty poorly compared to now


In my opinion Lindsay to "Upset" Monica 6-2 6-4

Monica never can win Davenport if Davenport's leg will be "hurted"..
Ok..to be honest..I think Monica has her chances. To hit hard and serve well...and of course, to move Lindsay. That's the most important thing I think.

All the best to Justine Henin-Hardenne!!

Last time they played Monica lost 6-3 7-5, but she should have won the second set (she was very tired after playing 3 three setters, and made lots of easy errors). The point is that we have no way of knowing what game Monica is going to bring after not playing for so long. If she brings her A game, she can beat Lindsay, especially is Lindsay struggles.

the only way Monica can beat Lindsay is that she must go to the Lindsay's court and hit Lindsay with her racquet!!!

What are you talking about?!? Monica hasn't hardly had a chance to beat quality players after Wimbledon! She was injured up to the US Open and even then looked inhibited then...

Visit MONICA!

I dunno what to think of this match. Lindsay has been playing well lately (except in finals), and Monica hasn't played in a while. However Lindsay isn't too confident right now, I think it depends on Monica. If she's not rusty and she plays some great tennis, I think she will win.

Try some other stuff

If she keeps trying to win over davenport hitting the ball harder, it wont do much. I think that if monica is fit enough so as to be ready for every shot and can move Lindsay a little bit just a Clijsters does, she'll have a good chance at it.

I REALLY HOPE MONICA WINS THIS. Sorry Lindsay but your game is sooo boring...

I think even as a Mon fan, people are putting too much expectation on Monica, the only way Monica can win is when I see arecent photo of her which looks like last year during summer hard court season

Whats up with the doubting Monica tirade? Did Monica have a winning record over Vee when she beat her in Austrailia? NO! I think Monica is gonna surprise the hell outta some people.

She has to take control of the points early. That's the key to Monica beating anyone.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.
