Good draw for Lindsay I would say. Sprem is in her half and also Schynder who can be a tricky customer but nothing Linds can't cope with including Amelie,.

I actually think that if she can get by Sprem, she will fly through to the finals. I know she CAN get by Sprem, but she can be a tricky customer!

Lindsay will get by sprem easily, just because she played great at wimbledon doesn't mean she will follow it up with great results, and i don't think any of the other players really cause a threat to her

Can she make it a California Sweep??

Davenport Sears Serena; to go for 2nd California Triple
Williams: ĎItís the second time Iíve tried to commit suicide out thereí

By Matthew Cronin
********************


Susan Mullane/Camerawork USA
Davenport is ona 9-match win streak.
FROM THE JPMORGAN CHASE OPEN IN CARSON,CA. Ė Maybe she needed to kick herself in the shorts or maybe someone else did. Whatever the case, since falling miserably and hurt in the fourth round of Roland Garros to Elena Dementieva, a now healthy Lindsay Davenport has played the best tennis of anyone on tour over the past five weeks and is now a serious threat to win her second "California Triple" and go on to New York and win her second US Open crown.

In her 6-1, 6-3 devastation of top seed Serena Williams to win her fourth JPMorgan Chase Open title Sunday, Davenport played as consistent and heady of a match against an elite player than she has in four years. She was more powerful, accurate, smarter and actually moved better than the once fleet number one.

She came into the contest with a 2-9 record against Serena and immediately looked like it was she who had dominated the rivalry. She was in complete control of the first set and every time she was threatened in the second set, tightened her game into a sailorís knot. And, just like she did against Venus last week at Stanford, she showed a lot more confidence on the monumental points.

"Iíve had a tough time playing the Williams than last four years," said Davenport, who only committed 12 unforced errors to 29 from Williams. "Going out and playing good tennis and being able to withstand two full weeks of tennis against good players is great. Iím building and want to keep the momentum going."

If Serena had managed to win any of her three break points in the match's final game, the contest could have turned around, but she doesnít have complete strength in her legs yet, is vulnerable on her forehand side and isnít returning with confidence. Predictably, she was sickened by her performance.
"I played like a nightmare," William said. "I tried to commit suicide out there. I pretty much killed myself. I had a awful, horrendous, terrible, miserable and horrible day."

On the first break point in the final game, Davenport forced Serena into a forehand error. On the second one, she cracked a 109-serve and then took a sitter and rifled a backhand down the line. But it was the third break point that mattered most and illustrated where they both are with their games, when in the longest rally of the match, Davenport hung with Serena in an exhausting rally and finally cut Serenaís legs out from under with a hard forehand. A tired Serena ended up doing a split on the baking court and committed a forehand error. The match was over two points later when she couldnít lift a backhand over the net.

"I feel like the last 10 months Iíve been building a stronger base physically, can withstand the power and run down some balls," said Davenport, who is now traveling with a trainer, Todd Norman, and a physical therapist, Laura Eby said. "I have a lot of inner confidence now."

Davenport crushed Sprem last time, but I think that was Davenport's best match of the year. She was on fire and then some. If her level is a bit lower if and when they play in the second round, it could be tough because Sprem can hit just as hard. Still, Sprem is more comfortable on clay and Davenport has so much confidence right now. After that, I think she has a clear draw until the semis, where either Dementieva or Mauresmo will be waiting. Davenport has a great overall record against both and, if it's Dementieva, you know she will be looking for revenge after that embarassing loss in Paris. And then maybe a rematch with Serena in the finals... or, better yet, Sharapova. I sooooo want to see her destroy the Russian and prove that she should have won Wimbledon, had it not been for the rain.

Keep up the fine form and keeping wearing that sexy yellow jacket, Lindsay!

I'm sure she'll beat Sprem, and I hope to see Conchita Martinez in the 3rd round, because Conchita leads in the head to head record, so I want Lindsay to pulverize Conchita!!!!!!!!!I would like to see Lindsay beat Amelie int the semi and Serena(or Maria, who knows...) in the final of course!!!!!!!!GO LINDSAY

Sprem can be hideous when she's off. I mean bad. But if she's on, she will cause problems. But, Lindsay is playing the best tennis I've seen her play in four years. So, hopefully she can cruise.

I'm going to San Diego tomorrow. Hopefully she'll be playing.

I agree with you there Leo.

Lindsay went into that match knowing how well she had to play inorder to win. Lindsay knew that beating Venus Williams at Wimbledon wasn't an easy feat (Sprem had to win in two tie-break sets). Whatever, Lindsay will play pretty competantly against Sprem and I have no doubt that in the form Lindsay is in, that she will come through that match comfortably.

It is sad for Sprem to have such an early exit after such a great Wimbledon, but infortunately the same happened with Alex Stevenson back in 1999 after Lindsay trashed her in the Semi's of Wimbledon.

Lindsay has a great draw and there are few people in that half that could trouble her. In fact, she has a winning record against all of them! Her closest rival might come in the form of Amelie, but Lindsay has already beaten her this year, on clay which is Lindsay's weekest surface!

Let's go Lindsay!

I think its great that lindsay has a personal physio travelling with her as this may helpher prolong her career (shame I'm not yet qualified as I would have volunteered to be her physio )

In the world you are just 1 person, but to 1 person you are the world

Two thing really would have to stop Lindsay from not getting to the final.

1. She would have to have a bad day and her opponent playing well.

2. She is fatigued and or injured.

Lindsay is on fire and I don't see a single player in her draw that she would fear at this point considering who she has beaten the past two weeks.

Seeing Maria orSerena in the final with her would be a great match to see.

Actually, as Freddie mentioned, Lindsay does have a losing record against Martinez. It would be nice to see her change that.
