LINDSAY BACK TO No.4

I am a bit worried with Lindsay dropping to number 4 and not playing the Olympics. As she is not playing she will gain any points and as the number 4 player in the world will be most affected at the U.S Open if Serena gets a special seeding!
If she is bumped to 5th seed, which is one thing Lindsay herself said she was trying to avoid, then it make it a lot harder for her in the draw!

She doesn't care where she is seeded, so it really doesn't matter. She's not losing any points either, and she's going to start flying up the rankings in the fall.

There is always someone who knows better than everyone else on this forum! Has anybody else noticed that? LOL
It's a post mate, not a life and death struggle for popularity by knowing what the players are "thinking" every second of the day.
Geez, lighten up!

You're the one who was proclaiming what she was thinking in your original post. I'm saying that her US Open seeding shouldn't matter. She can beat everyone there no matter where she is seeded. And the title of this thread was "LINDSAY BACK TO No.4". So I discuss Lindsay's ranking come this fall. And I'm not trying to enter a "popularity contest". I would be much nicer if I wanted to do that.

You said, and i quote, "she doesn't care where she is seeded". How would you know that?
You really need to lighten up and not be so defensive mate! Just chill, it's called sarcasm.

I totally agree Andrew. I think she will be No 5 seed at Open as if Justine is ok at the Olympics she surely will play at Flushing Meadows. The same with Serena. I think Lindsay can cope wherever she is seeded if she carries on playing as she did in the last 3 tournaments.

I don't DISGAREE with the fact that she will win no matter what if she continues to play at the level shae has been playing. What i am suggesting is that she may not look forward to playing Venus in the third round, then serena in the fourth round, then Justine in the semis etc etc.
If she is seeded fourth or higher it simply makes her draw a little easier that's all!
A Grand Slam is totally different to a Tier 2 event on a number of levels.

This year Lindsay has defeated everyone who will be seeded about her, except for Justine. And in Lindsay's current for, she can take that.

And please not LethalLindsay, that because you are in the negative rep numbers, all you give me is a little grey square, which does nothing. Thanks.

Serena will have her special ranking most likely until the end of the year. She has eight non-slam and non-ITF events to use it in, and she has used it in six. She has two left, so I imagine she'll use them for two indoor tournaments this fall.

It doesn't matter if you only got a grey square. You're a wank, you'll always be a wank, and it was you who started this whole five year old's temper tantrum by doinf it to me first.
It doesn't bother me what you do mate, I just love tennis. You just love the attention and being a smart-ass. You wank.
