I remember watching her mixed doubles quarter or semi at wimbledon when center court announced the suspension of play because it was raining a little and Lindsay was on court 1 or 2 and heard them announce the suspension of play on center and started putting her jacket on and gathering her stuff up and the umpire was like "what're you doing?". It was cute.

She never takes any risks with rain, that's for sure.

Lindsay just laughed at herself as she took off her jacket and grabbed her racket and talked to Bob Bryan, I think she asked him if he heard the suspension... it was funny, Lindsay was really relaxed and happy playing mixed doubles.

I never saw it, but I read somewhere about Lindsay smashing the machine that beeps when the balls skims the net on a serve? does anyone know anything about that?

One moment I personally thought was funny was when she was playing Monica in the E-estyle Open classic in 2001. She was serving somewhere around in the first set in the Deuce Court. She serves an 'ace' down the T and the umpire calls it out. Lindsay gives him the 'what are you talking about?' look and serves a second serve. After a long game Lindsay finally serves in the Ad court an ACE wide serve. So you can read Lindsay's lips saying 'Was THAT out?' and she gaved him the bitchiest look ever.

It may not be so funny when by hearing it, but watching it, it really made me laugh! Lindsay CAN be a bitch on court, that proves it.

I saw the moment you were talking about Joaco!!!! Yeah!! I found it funny too!!! Another moment...well, it's not very funny, but it was the only time I saw Lindsay so irritated!!!! It was the semifinal of the masters 2001, at 4/4 in the 3rd set, the ball was down the line, and the chair umipre called it out, Lindsay was so astonished!!! And after, she behaved like a monster!!!!! I was very surprised to see Lindsay like that, because she uses to be very fairplay, and so calm... Well... I know it's not very funny, but her attitude was like the match you were talking about Joaco... I know I know, the end of the match isn't very funny...

Proud to be your fan Lindsay
Lindsay Davenport n1!!!

funny moment for me...wimbly this year. We had ladies finals tix, so obv lindsay was out. but she was still in the mixed doubles. so i dragged my mum round the courts in the morning looking for her, then we went to watch the roddick-ancic semi final that had been delayed til that day. after we went for lunch and had given up all hope of seeing lindsay. we were walking round and i spotted someone that looked like kim cliysters on court 3 i believed. i was walking towards it saying 'is it, isnt it her'. I then glanced over to court 4 and saw lindsay. well i dunno how i 'saw' her cos i didnt have my glasses on...i assume it was the height/body shape! I then stopped dead pointed and couldnt hardly breath. i then turned round and legged it round to that court. my mum didnt know where id gone cos she didnt see that id spotted lindsay!!!! i was so happy!!!!!!

LOL, I was watching that mixed doubles match too - it was so funny! I think they were on court 13 or 18 and Lindsay heard it from centre courts (possibly from the speakers of the giant TV on the side of court 1) and also the number 3 apeared on that code thing, three meaning "get ready to cover the courts" and 5 meaning "play suspended". So Lindsay heard the announcement and saw the number "3" and started to put her jacket on.

It was so funny, the unpire and the other three players were looking at her and smirking......Lindsay looked around, looked at the umpire in a confused way. I was really laughing over that moment, when she was asking bob and her opponants if they'd heard it - too funny.

Also, the other moment you refer to is during the wimbledon womens doubles final of 1999. It was Lindsay/Corina vs. De Swardt/Tatarkova in that final. It think it was 4-4 in the second and De Swardt was serving at 30-40 so Lindsay/Corina, if they got this point would serve for the championship. De Swardt hit a serve that (clearly) court the net - the serve barely reached the service line, so when Lindsay hit the return it went into the net. The Umpire never called "let" so the score was called "deuce"

Lindsay, Corina and their opponants looked a little confused, De Swardt/Tatarkova turned their backs as Lindsay aproached the umpire quite calmly at first saying, "surely that was a let!?", "no," the umpire said "the let cord didn't beep, so it wasn't a let." Then Lindsay got a little more irritated; "WHAT!? because the let cord didn't beep you're not calling a let!? - That was clearly a let!"....."I want someone on this court calling the let cords"....the the umpire was saying, "The cord didn't go off, I'm calling it".

Lindsay continued, getting more and more aggressive, "on such an important point, you rely on a machine to call the let!?".....By this time Corina try's to talk to Lindsay and try's to tell her to calm down, but Lindsay turns back to the net, draws her racket over her head and smacks it down, so hard on the net cord! Then she turned to the umpire and said, sarcastically, "did it go off then!?", she hit it again and walked off......the umpire called for an official to monitor the let cord - Lindsay won her argument, but not the point.

If I remember rightly, it became a long duece game, with Lindsay/Corina breaking serve for a 5-4 lead. Corina sucessfully serves out the match for a 6-4, 6-4 victory! What a moment, and what a great day it was for Lindsay fans - 4th July 1999!
