I can't imagine that Lindsay has a tough road in the draw. First Srebotnik who is by no means easy to beat and then Schiavone, and most probably Momo.

Yay for getting the players we own in our half. That 'tis nice.

But the first match...umm...Srebotnik scares me a bit (has massive flashback to Lindsay sucking against her at last year's French Open)

But overall the draw doesn't totally suck, if she pasts Srebotnik she can defenately make a run at this. She better be ready...

Srebotnik just lost to Ivanovic in the QF in Canada so hopefully she will be tired and disappointed....but she could also be really confident. It all depends on Lindsay, if she is ready to go and on form then she should take her second New Haven trophy.

lol yeah but she sucks on red clay. Even sharapova nearly lost there this year! Srebotnik just really keeps the ball in play - shes not amazing. she only had 10 winners against ivanavic today as well. And Ivanavic got 40 - not playing THAT well!

Kata Srebotnik=possible 1r upset for Lindsay
but if she survives it she should beat Momo and Petrova comfortably

GO Lindsay

how comes that Elena and JHH are on the opposite side of the draw
Need to play some matches Lindsay. WIN!

lol i'll care about this tournament when Big Brother has finished. This final is so good - Davina is hillarious. Surely she should have given birth by now!

But yeah, go Lindsay!

i dont like her draw. mauresmo comes too early.but if lindsay beats her, then petrova/schnyder are not a problem. anyway, she's n.10 right now, so we can't expect a better draw with such a low-ranking.
GOO LINDSAY!!!!!!

I like the fact Lindsay has to play a first round this time I think it will help her find her form again. As for the draw it could have been worse at least Chirstine and Elena D are in the other half. Its just great to see Lindsay playing again. After LA I would take Lindsay winning her first match then we might be able to start thinking about her winning the title.

At least we don't have to wait to Wednesday or Thursday for her to play because she doesn't have a bye

I'm likin' this draw. I've never seen Srebotnik play so can't comment. Should be able able to handle Momo if playing decent. I think Patty will make the semis rather than Nadia. That would be a tricky match.
The most dangerous players for Lindsay in this tournament are Justine, Elena, and Kuz. Thankfully they're all in the other half.

Srebotnik has a pretty good first serve. I hope Lindsay reacts a bit quicker than she did against Stosur other wise she might get ousted. I'm not that confident with Momo coming up so early. But better than Justine I guess.

*1*Lindsay Davenport*1*

Maria Sharapova/Jelena Jankovic/Justine Henin

Also supporting Carla Suarez Navarro,Na Li, Sabine Lisicki,Karolina Sprem,Samantha Stosur,Tamira Paszek

Amelie Mauresmo/Martina Hingis

Just happy JHH is on the other side of the draw. Srebotnik is playing well lately; hopefully Linds has gotten better in between tournaments, she's going to have to play well.
