Something about Lindsay's tactics

Have you guys noticed that Lindsay always chooses to receive even
she wins the toss?I think it may be feasible against lesser opponent,
but in a grand slam final,when your opponent is serving to stay in the match,
Serving first can definitely put a lot pressure on your opponent.

lol yeah shes always done that - probs cos the other person will be more nervous/crap in the first couple of games - so its easier to break/get into the swing of the match.

Say what you like about Davenport, but shes achieved what most others could only dream of!

You know, Justine prefers to receive 1st too. She always chooses to receive (well, there were just a couple exeptions).
I always thought she does that to found some rhythm before serving.

She wants to get the early break, and I think in certain situations it isn't appropriate.

I thought it was an odd tactic myself I thought Venus had won the toss but it must have had something to do with a pervious match she had played against her. She has always done that though.

I read somewhere before that she chooses to receive first most of the time because she wants to warm up or get more of a feel for he match first before serving, or something to that effect.

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.
