Will Lindsay play Dubai?

Hey new member here and *HUGE* fan of Lindsay's tennis and of her as a person. First fell in love with her in Wimbledon 2002 and have been following her ever since - needless to say Wimbledon 2005 was one of the most traumatising tennis tournaments of my life but I have the faith!

Anyway...yeah...so she's injured and I haven't seen any mention on the boards if her ankle feels better cos a defended title in Dubai would really help Lindsay in terms of ranking points. i.e not dropping anymore.

And after Dubai...where is she playing?

Sorry if this is all common knowlede - I.is.thick.like

I'm sure her ankle is better by now. But that doesn't mean she'll play Dubai.

She's also scheduled to play Indian Wells and Miami.

Well, I think it's a 50-50 as to whether she plays Dubai. Her ankle is probably fine by now, but she may choose to rest up for Indian Wells and the now mandatory Miami.

If she does miss Dubai, she can make up the points with a good showing in Miami

I read in the top 15 listing on the WTA site Lindsay is playing in Dubai next week. We've gone from nothing for three weeks since the oz open to she will be playing every week for the next four. Also Welcome to Emmanya hope you enjoy being a member of this board.

Yea playing 4 weeks in a row esp at this point in her career prob isn't the best thing to do. It suck that Lindz has to play Miami cause, as we all know she doesn't like playing there.

The woods are hopeless. Don't waste your time, they will be destroyed. So will the marsh. It is a losing game mankind has played for more than a century. Sadness is what you are, do not deny it. The universe is a lonely place, a painful place. This is what we can share between us, period.

She shouldn't whine about playing Miami. All players play it, and have for years. And it's really not that bad... She has a 1r bye at both IW and Miami, and probably won't play her first match until Thursday or Friday. And I doubt she makes it past the QF at Miami, so there's nothing to worry about.

She's supposed to be playing AI, too.

Selfishly, I'd rather see her skip Dubai and focus on kickin' ass at IW and Miami since I'll actually get to see those on TV, alot. But this is Lindsay we're talking about.

If Lindsay doesn't play Dubai, I guarentee she doesn't do well at IW. You can't just show up at a hugh tournament with zero prep. We've seen with other players what happens.

She's not going to withdraw or tank. If she does, that's a really, really, really stupid decision. Miami is a mandatory ranking tournament.

For all of her "I hate Miami, blah, blah, blah..." talk, she really hasn't done that badly there. She made the final in 2000, winning a fantastic semifinal match. That's probably my favorite Lindsay match ever. And other than 2003, she consistently makes the later rounds of the tournament. Miami was actually her breakout tournament back in 1994. She whipped then-world number five Sabatini in the QF, then gave #1 Graf a good fight in the SF. Ditto 1996.

It's all an attitude problem. If she goes into it in a bad mood, thinking she's losing early, she's going to lose early. If she goes into it okay, there's no reason for her to lose before the semis. It's exactly like Roland Garros.
