She won't need much to keep #1. Mauresmo isn't defending her final with win over a #1, and Maria didn't win Miami and isn't playing here. Plus, we can gain in Charleston. Neither field is really that strong, so I think in one or both a final is reachable.

You should all visit be on Becca's forums.

Oh. Venus in the QF.

I just don't think Lindsay has enough confidence against Venus, still. US Open was a great match from Lindsay, but the fact is that she should have absolutely whore slapped Venus there. And, there were some serious issues closing that one out.

Lindsay can beat Venus. Show up, hit crap to the forehand, and it goes out. It's a really simple gameplan, and it's one that Lindsay has stuck to in their last few matches. Slam bam wham. 6-2 6-2. But this never happens. Break point conversion is key. In the last three matches that Lindsay beat Venus, that has always been a statistic that doesn't look great. As I said, at the US Open, there were a ton of chances to kill that match and dominate. But, we let Venus hang around for alot longer than she should have.

Venus is playing a bit better now. I'm not taking anything out of the Miami win over Serena. But the fact is that if Lindsay serves decently and hits crap to the forehand, she wins.

That being said, I really won't be shocked at all if she loses this. I firmly believe she still has mental issues with certain players, Venus included.

Why couldn't we have Petrova or Zvonereva? Venus's movement is just going to be ridiculous and she's going to get every ball back, although thank God it's green clay and not red! I'm not sure, Lindsay has a lot of respect for Venus and her game but knows what she's capable of at Amelia Island... she'll give it her best to try and defend.

Hmmmmmm Venus in the Quater Finals! Thats not what I was looking for....Venus has picked her game up alot.....since lindsay last played her! Venus movement is awesome at the moment...and venus's serve is HOT!! When she played in Miami...she served well through out the whole tournament! Eeeekk! Im was surprized she beat serena actually was really sure that serena would come through on that, but she picked her off pretty easily. I Think Venus is back....and with Kim and justine back too.....boy the tour is heating up!

I completely agree with Andrew, Lindsay can win this match over Venus, she has the weapons to do so! And as andrew said...its allabout attacking venus's forehand..as this breaks down all the time..and is not technally mechanically good! She has big technique problems with her forehand...so exposing this could give lindsay a major advantage! It will all come down to whether she has the selfbelief in herself and has the confidence to say yeah..this is mine, I can take it!

What ever happens.....ill be happy as long as she gives it her all....100% and then if she loses, she cant say she hasnt done her best!

Go Linds.......2 great Tournies to get, Im sure you can do it! LETS Go!!!!!!!!

**********************GO LINDSAY!!*************************

Yeah, Lindsay says she's a traditionalist in that she exploits weaknesses so as long as she goes forehand to forehand with Venus - and her own forehand holds up - she could win here and keep her run of matches against Venus going. Lindsay should definately watch the US Open match, she was immense. Lindsay will be rested and hopefully don't some good clay court practice.
