Clay season

Here's a thread to monitor Lindsay's injury through the clay season, and also any plans she has to play.

Not suprisingly, Lindsay is not commited to Warsaw or Berlin. The Rome entry list comes out next week.

I would love to see Lindsay in Warsaw somemday but we have enough good players coming this year, so it's going to be an extraordinary event anyway, as if they all show up. Berlin isn't her tourney, but Rome...Foro Italico are the fastest red claycourts I saw, so it'd be great, if she decides to play there. We'll see. As for now it seems she's out till RG - not that bad idea, cos the main thing is to heal the back and be confident bout physical aspect of the game. I'm sure it's her goal for those off weeks.

Wherever Lindsay plays, its for her best interest and she knows what she needed to win more majors. To hell with the rankings.

Year she would probably have to lose 1r at all the slams. Even a slumping Lindsay would have too much pride to do that.
Anyway I don't see Venus going anywhere but down. She's playing even less than last year and there's no way in hell she's winning Wimbledon this year.

I think she'll play an event before the French to warm-up a little bit and test the injury... maybe Istanbul or Strasbourg... I'd love to see her at Rome though.

Lindsay should be three weeks into her six week lay off.

Yeah, I agree - we all know clay isn't her surface of choice, but it's so important to just get match play in before Wimbledon. Rome sounds like a good idea, in my opinion.. no point in making herself extra-miserable by entering a rinky dink event instead. And I mean, hello - I know she hates her little European Adventures, but she's been sitting at home for so long now that she should suck it up and play Rome/RG.

Rome, RG, Eastbourne, Wimbledon. That's the ideal schedule, IMO.

She definitely needs to get match practice in before Wimbledon, I don't care how much she dislikes clay!!

Ha. If Lindsay plays Rome, I'll eat my shorts.

Honestly speaking, whenever Lindasy openly discusses her reduced schedule, Rome and probably Eastbourne too, seem beyond any realm of possibility. Especially Rome.

It'll probably go Charleston, RG, and Wimbledon.

WTF. Wasn't Lindasy on the Charleston entry list?

Blagh. I bet she just skips everything untill Roland Garros now.

I really need to keep up.
