Comments that make this victory all the sweeter...

It's unbelievabla.. it's like my grandma is standing there and hitting some balls.. It's terrible as hell

And this player is the number one What a great image for women's tennis

Lindsay is such a fighter that she will walk off the court with two bread sticks!

Yeah, Babsi Schett is criticizing Daveys motivation as well("She isn't even moving") and said that a number one should at least try to win, Schett: "She knew befor the match that she won't win and seems not really be keen on fighting"
Well, I guess she is right....I really like Lindsay, but a true number one SHOULD fight!!!!

The saddest thing is that Davenport's complete lack of effort was totally predictable

Her attitude is really disgraceful. And it's not as if this is a one-off. She does it all the time! I can't wait for the lazy bitch to retire.

Lindsay is another who will likely never win a Grand Slam singles title again. Not because she isn't a good enough player, but she gets too down on herself.

I wish Davenport hadn't even entered the tournament if she was to play like this when faced with somone she knew she could lose to.
She won't be missed when she retires. Well.. she will be but continuing to play for a few more mouths would be a nightmere for us fans.

I don't know how many times DAvenhorse has let this shit happen. She just steps on the court knowing she stands no chance. She's the kind of player who loses to the same players over and over again and doesn't really do much to change a thing.

Somehow Linzi's attitude is soo visible. Her head looks like "I don't win today, I am just here for my money."

Believe me. She will be on the losing end at the end really. How many games she wins doesn't matter cuz she will lose anyways. She will never ever ever never ever beat Kim again!

no I won't! The thing is Davenhorse just is so used to losing those players that she doesn't make as much efforts to beat them as she does against lower ranked players who she knows she can beat somehow. Her H2Hs against particular players are a clear indication.

Shuzo: Davenport is choking.

Davenport is far from a true champison with such an attitude and mental strength.

Kim is blowing it now!

Missing every important point!

It's a matter of time though. I didn't expect her to lose the first set so easily and win such a competitive 2nd set after down 1-3 but I stick by what I said: Davenport will lose either way according to Shuzo.

Lindsay Davenport

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

Q. Give us an update on the kid.
A. Are you serious?

I so said to the guy you quoted "SHUT THE FUCK UP you don't know what you're talking about' I started giving a few explanations, but then I said to myself... "what for?". These people are unquestionably ignorant, so why care.

Well, it's those sorts of people that I ignor. Some people are ust so negative and how anyone can say that Lindsay hasn't been trying is beyond me. I mean, many of us are even suprised she turned up at Roland Gaross, let alone get to the Quarter finals. She hates the surface so much that people were suprised that she crawled trought the first round. Then she struggled through the second round but found a way to win, same in 3rd and now the fourth against kim!

I mean, anytime in the past - pick a random time if you like (except the US Open 04 & Aus Open 05) if Lindsay had to go to 3 sets in any match didn't matter how big it was, wouldn't bother in the third and lose it something stupid like 6-1 or 6-2 etc. And that was on surfaces she loves, like Hard and Grass but here we are on red clay, which she hates having played 4 matches all have been 3 setters all of which she has come through and ALL have been against competant clay court players!

The last round vs Kim, I mean what an acheivement! Turning around a record of 6 straight loses to Kim on Lindsay's weaker surface, how can people like Shuzo complain.....maybe they just don't have a clue!

I don't care what happens now in this tournie....Lindsay has proved that she is a true fighter, pulled herself from the brink of defeat in her first two rounds and fought hard in the others!

best thing we can do with these sorts of people is just ignor them, because after Lindsay beat kim, I'm sure they felt pretty stupid enough from themselves without us having to rub it in

Go Lindsay!

Reading the rubbish those losers posted makes it all the sweeter. Lindsay has nothing to prove to anyone but she certainly shut the begrudgers up with that win.
