Unhappy Not Good

This ain't the news we want to hear. It's not good. We must remain positive

it took me a long time to answer to this ... because i was contemplating what to say ... anyway ...

there would be no one ever like lindsay, in my opinion, but i love women's tennis enough to stick around. lindsay would always have a wonderful place in my heart because she was the one who got me into tennis. as i have said myself before, i was crazy about lindsay so much that i created a whole club for her!

even so, lindsay would retire some day and we will face that eventually. i would want that the club be NOT disbanded even after her retirement because we have shared a bit of ourselves as TOPs and that would never change. we can remember everything about lindsay for ever!

what about it guys?

It's not shyness I have. It's just that I'm not one of those people who loves to open a newspaper of magazine and see myself all the time. I don't like that at all. I prefer to play my tennis which I love, and with which I've been blessed.

KELLY, I read that in ACE and felt a bit miffed but Richard Eaton always in my mind seems to have a bit of a down on Lindsay. I think he was referring to her one operation this year and not to another one. He probably thought she had an operation last year. Unless I have misinterpretted and she has had another Op recently. After all we knew she would not be back before May at the very earliest. Lets keep positive for her guys, Linds will come through this!!

JACS - I would like us to keep TOP going after Lindsay retires - as you say we have all given a part of ourselves in supporting Lindsay so strongly and I would so miss you all. Hopefully we have a few years before we have to do this but it is good to consider our options for the future.

LETS KEEP LINDSAY AND TOP FOR POSTERITY.

I haven't got my new copy of ACE yet!

I think the guy himself has missunderstood. Perhaps he thinks that Lindsay has previously had an op on her knee because she was out for a while last year with knee problems (Madrid, RG retired from one of the US hardcourts vs Dementieva in March).

I'll still follow WTA even when Lindsay retires. As I always say to my sister - "Lindsay rules the court! ".

I will always remember Lindsay for her great matches and most importantly for getting me into tennis in the first place! Yes, like every other British citizen, I watch Wimby EVERY year - with out fail and loved it! But I'll always remember the Olympic final 1996 was when I really started supporting Lindsay.

Lindsay's been the only player who I've had as a favourite, and it will be hard to sort of find someone else to support. The time hasn't come yet, I'm sure we'll still have at least another 3 years left.

GOOOOOOOOOOO LINDSAY!

I was heart-broken when Steffi retired and it will happen again when Linds retires. But Lindsay will recover and continue to play tennis for us. No need to get sad now. Let's hope she will be back by the end on march and let's enjoy her on court.
