Expectations for Lindsay in 2005.

Assuming she plays an entire season.

How well will she do in the slams? Who will she lose to? win against? have problems with?

Where will Lindsay dominate?

How many titles will she get in singles and doubles and what tiers?

We have to do something 'til January!

Lindsay Davenport

Elena Bovina | Anastasia Myskina | Flavia Pennetta
Fernando Verdasco | Tommy Haas

slams-semis at the ozzy and us open, 3rd/4th at the french if she plays it...final at wimbledon...would say a win but im not jinxing it.

5 titles- Tokyo,Indian wells,Los Angeles,Filderstaadt,Season End

wont win anything in doubles

she will have prolems with myskina,Sharapova and i reckon golivan (sp??) could trouble her....she will own the williams till late summer when they will both be back and she will lose to serena at the us open semi...the belgians im unsure of...could bt henin but she is a difficult player for lindsay to play against but woth her eing out for a bit lindsay could have a chance.

im off to the bookies now..lol

That's no fun! :-p

I was reading a nice interview with Lansdorp and he said, it was during this years US Open, that Lindsay has another Wimbledon in her. Woo!

Anyway, I think:

AO - Semi.
FO - Quarterfinal [taking out Dementieva]
W- Win.
US - Win.

YEC - semis.

I think she'll win a low tiered doubles at the very start of the year and hopefully she'll defend pan pacific again!

I really expect her to win at least one slam this year. She's the best player in the world, and if she's playing normally no one should be able to stop her.

Aus - Final
French Open- Don't play.
Wimbledon - Final/Win.
US Open - Final.

Win the Cali hardcourts again, this time including Indian Wells. I realyl hope she plays Miami. Just show up, then tank in the QF, and you get a good 150 free points there. Players I think will trouble her next year are Henin and possibly Serena. I don't see Myskina causing her too much trouble on a regular hardcourt or on grass.

That's weird Andrew, when I first did my predictions I did the same as you but then I thought it ridiculous, but it seems illogical for her not to win. This year she only had one slam [the US] where she had the confidence to win and hopefully next year she'll reach her full potential.

I want her to win Wimbledon the most but an Aussie win would be the best way to keep Lindsay enjoying the game and have a great year.

I think she'll dominate the hardcourts again.

I think she has a good chance at the hard court slams next year. I'm not hoping a whole lot for the French.

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.

There was a nice article on fox sports Australia today saying that if Lindsay wins the open she may retire *eek!*

I think she has the most chance at the US and then Wimbledon so it makes the most sense to play the whole year... or petition for them to move the US and wimbly to January.

The article was short and taken totally out of context. She's already said she's planning on playing through at least Wimbledon. This is just pointless hype be the Australian media to add to the drama.

I agree. It's the dude from the australian open trying to boost the prestige of his events in relation to Lindsay's career... I don't see Lindsay retiring unless she tanks with a first round loss or if she wins.

Hey!!!!Where did you get this pic Andrew!!!! About Lndsay's predictions for 2005, I really hope she will win the Australian open, the really deserves it. But I think that she is more likely to win in Wimbledon. Well, in fact, I don't really want to expect anything, we could be surprised because no one expects her to win in Roland Garros, even if she doesn't like clay, she could play a really great game on it. About players who could annoy her during the season, I think about Kuznetsova, Sharapova, Myskina, and Henin. Lindsay can beat them as she is really confident right now, but it will be very hard. So now, let's wait until Sydney in january!!!!!

Proud to be your fan Lindsay
Lindsay Davenport n°1!!!
