Tennis is tennis no matter what conditions it's played under. Proof: Last year, Lindasy injured her knee in an exhibition match against Sharapova. Just because the atmosphere is a little lighter doesn't mean it isn't tennis. Injuries happen everywhere.
This, btw, shouldn't even be called an exhibition. Every player here plays to win it. And the field is probably better than any Tier I had last year. If that doesn't say it ...
And even if Lindsay lost every match, she'd have to play three matches. And that's assuming she lost every match. And when and if she does win, she gets to play players that have given her shit loads of problems - Venus, Kim, Serena.
I think all signs point to Sydeny, eh.
Bam. Wham. Lindsay Davenport CHAMPION.
