Re: Comeback continues - Beijing

Love this draw Likely to be a JJ semi and a Sveta final, but she can win with this draw I just hope she's not too tired

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

Re: Comeback continues - Beijing

It's a pretty decent draw for Lindsay if she isn't too tired. Though the idea of her playing Lena D still makes me nervous even if Lena is having a bad year.

I wonder who the qualifer will be...

victoria azarenka

This is great draw for Lindsay after playing in the Bali final tomorrow she doesn't want to have a challenging match in the first round in China. Even though she's in the draw I just hope this forearm injury she's got isn't too serious.

It does look a kinder draw than Bali did but look what she pulled off.

She has some potentially tricky customers to deal with. Daniilidou will be out for revenge, Paszek is an up-and-coming young player with tremendous heart, Lena D is an old nemesis and the if she gets through that it will be Jele J again who I think will have learned her lesson and will put the practice in.

But they will all be fearing Lindsay after this week. This is sooooooo exciting to have her back. The butterflies are back.

Re: Comeback continues - Beijing

SO excited, and good draw... after getting tough draws in NH and Bali, I thought for sure she'd get Sveta or JJ 2nd round here

I worry about her getting tired, but she should atleast get to the QFs, which would be great anyways

Re: Comeback continues - Beijing

It could have been worse...she could have had a seed first round! This is good!! Shame shes on the opposite half of the draw to Martina...i cant WAIT to see these two play again!

LINDSAY DAVENPORT!

Re: Comeback continues - Beijing

If she plays the final tomorrow and leaves tomorrow night then she won't be scheduled til tuesday, hopefully have an easy match [who's in the quali draw?] and then another easy-ish one against Eleni and then hopefully she won't have exerted herself too much for Elena or Paszek.

Lindsay Davenport

Elena Bovina | Anastasia Myskina | Flavia Pennetta
Fernando Verdasco | Tommy Haas


Q. Give us an update on the kid.

Q field is very weak - headed by Salerni and Castano. Ditty is in there, as well.

Re: Comeback continues - Beijing

I have been a Lindsay fan for years. The one thing in her career that I have always believed is that she plays her best when nobody really expects things of her. Although she has alittle ways to go to get back to the top of the game, nobody is expecting anything too crazy yet in her comeback, which I think will help her tremendously come next year. Lindsay plays her best (Like anybody really) when there is no pressure and there is nothing to lose, if you remember back to her slams she really wasn't expected to win either the us open or wimbledon when she was in the finals. Anyhow good luck Linds, its so great to see a classy American back on the tour. I think the sky is the limit next year

DAVENPORT & CAPRIATI FOR FAN LIFE

I think Salerni's quite talented but loses to people I can't imagine how she would... but thats not to do with Lindsay. But, yeah, GO LINDSAY DEE!
