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!
Say what you like about Davenport, but shes achieved what most others could only dream of!
Jelena Jankovic Mary Pierce MARTINA HINGIS! Kim Clijsters Ana Ivanovic
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.
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.
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.
