At least no (BEL) until the final.

Well, I screwed that up.

Justine will be ranked #3 after Doha, but because seeds are taken from rankings after Dubai, Lindsay will be seeded #1.

But this one is scarier than the other one IMO because she's a better player.
I hope we get a lame Pierce in our half and the rodent and the shark can battle it out in the other half.
And Momo's not playing?

Suerly it's going to be a real test of Lindsays form. The field is lacking some players - Kim, Mauresmo(lol). Remember that Hingis is going to draw a seeded player in 3rd or 4th rd. I like Indian Wells it's one of my favorite tournaments. IMHO if Linzi' not playing well then th problem for her could be the draw. Either Pierce or Sharapova in the semis, probably a tough QF...We'l see. I'm looking for someone to pull out....wonder who it'll be

Davenport def. Henin-Hardene 6-0,6-0.

Lindsay's double bageled an opponent here two years running. It's only customary.

Lindsay Davenport
Jelena Jankovic
Ana Ivanovic

Bam. Wham. Lindsay Davenport CHAMPION.

How can Justine be ranked higher after Doha without having played at Doha?
And Lindsay hasn't to defend any points here, because she never played here!? So why they should change positions next week and where do you already know that today?

Coz last year Dubai was held in the week befor IW and this year it's Dohas turn . Lindsay earned =+99 points for SF in Dubai which gives her 2902 this week but eventually will loose points from last years win in Dubai(=-220) next week. JHH didn't play last year in neither of 2 tourneys and she's won Dubai - earned 220 points.That means Linzi will have 2682 next week and JHH will still have 2798 coz she's not defending any points from 2005 till Miami. As simple as that. The Sony Ericsson WTA Tour Singles
Rankings work this way - week after week the points are added or substracted even if the tourneys change their date.

She has just played there a few times... Last time was in 2003. I suppose she prefers Miami. She maybe wants to rest for 2 weeks.

Proud to be your fan Lindsay
Lindsay Davenport n1!!!
