Saw Lindsay today!!!

Yay and I got my t-shirt signed .

We found her aorangi park on a practise court next to KFC. But it was rammed so we couldnt get anywhere near. So we went to wait at the terrace for her to come past after she'd finished practising. Got a space at the front ready with my pen so she could sign my top.

She came past not looking at anyone (as if she was invisible) and me and the random next to me called her. She came over (woo) and signed their stuff and i knew she was gonna bolt straight after. So i was like 'Lindsay please can u sign my t-shirt'. lol she blatently thought *stupid person wanting their top signed* then she took her pen towards my top and then looked and saw it was a 'LINDSAY designed top' and she stopped and looked kinda taken back and pleasantly surprised and said 'oh gee!' and scribbled her name on it. Then she bolted. We were the only 2 she signed for I believe (later realised its probs cos JON is here!!!). lol he was yawning all thru the match...obviously jetlagged

Watched half of the first set of Masha on court 1 and then left cos she was doing my head in with all her shrieking and shocking play. (it was SO bad) and went to queue to get on the standing bit of court 2. couldnt get to the very front thou so couldnt see during the mens match before. But two LOVELY ladies left when Lindsay came on! So i had front row seats with the lovely adam and Jon smack bang opposite me. I later noticed that they kept looking over at me (obviously cos of the T-shirt). Didnt notice Lindsays mum thou....

Anyhoo Lindsay played AMAZINGLY. Creaming the lines left, right and center. As for the grunting thing, she didnt grunt, but breathed really loudly every time she smacked the ball! But yeah, really good match. Dinara played really well all things considering. Lindsay screamed and cursed at herself as per usual... so nothing new there. only 1df - v impressiiiive!!! Would like some more aces thou

After the match I legged it downstairs to see her comin out. Jon ignored me, but Adam spoke. Then Lindsay came off court and got hounded by ppl for autos...literally crushed (photo attached below). So she signed a few whilst walking, but then bolted with Adam and Jon. Hmmmm about Jon being here! He's bad luck!

Adam and Jon


Lindsay after the match being mobbed and crushed by people. U can see shes not impressed by that - not the most flattering of pix thou!



Finally...if she plays today like she did against Kim...she wins, no questions asked! She just did what she needed today thou, smacked the ball well and cleaned the lines. She just needs to put some drop shots in against Kim to bring it to the very top! All in all, a good day on the Dav front!

LINDSAY DAVENPORT!

he he he's not always bad luck.

In fact when at grand slams this year she's won all her matches he's been at - it was after he left Australia she lost

ETA: That shot that you took of her at the practice session is an awesome shot.

He he he, me too. I met linds, she signed my tee shirt which she also liked. Its the tim getting punched one and she was like 'oh wow, thats interesting'!
Funniest thing was....i met richard williams, cos he noticed i have managed to craft a flag in, he was like 'go girl' and then i asked him a few questions about who did he think was gonna do better this tourney v or s. (expecting him to come up with they are both my daughters i couldnt possibly pick a winner) Nooooooooo. He was like 'definately venus' followed swiftly by 'serenas been eating too many pies' or sumat, it wasn't pies or doughnuts but it was sumat along those lines....And sure enough, she is out!
He did make me chuckle, he even commented on my t-shirt, so everyone is loving the tim design this year!
Will post pics after i get em back and also t-shirt signed too.
I totally shifted some little kids out of the way to barge infront to get linds signature, i love my long arms they ROCK! xx beckl

my design got noticed by Lindsay!!! Wow - that's nice but I haven't seen Lindsay yet She'd better make the Quarters to meet the real designer of the punching Tim picture

Glad everyone is getting their T-shirts signed though hopefully it will encourage her to get past kim

Go Lindsay!
