Lindsay OZ open draw

Lindsay has drawn Sara Errani in the 1st round and may player Maria Sharapova in 2nd round and she is drawn in the top section. Bugger is the first word that came to my mind. Lindsay got drawn in the quarter of death as it is loaded up with good. Serena, Justine and Jelena just for starters.

Re: Lindsay OZ open draw

R1: Errani
R2: Sharapova

IF she manages to beat Maria (), then it'll be as follows:

R3: Vakulenko
R4: Dementieva/Peer
QF: Henin
SF: Serena/Jankovic
F: Whoever.

◄◄ Maria Sharapova ►►
Career Grand Slam.

Re: Lindsay OZ open draw

Actually, Linds would have Dementieva or Peer 4R, not Nicole

Re: Lindsay OZ open draw

worst possible draw for her.
I just wish Justine is not there.
2nd round Sharapova is doable for her.

Re: Lindsay OZ open draw

Linds potentially has to beat Sharapova, Henin and both Williams Sisters to win the title

Re: Lindsay OZ open draw

It will only be Maria's second competitive match on this surface, and in the Aussie heat. If she had to get a big name early, Maria is one of the better ones I think. Lindsay tends to go out of her way to complicate things with Maria though.

Re: Lindsay OZ open draw

I don't think it will be too bad to play Maria in 2nd round as she at her weakest in the first few rounds. I had to listen to the draw on AO radio as they didn't show the draw on tv and all they talked about in Lindsay's draw was playing Maria. Another interesting Lindsay fact with a win in the 1st round Lindsay will be top the all time money list on the WTA tour and will will also become the highest money earner in all of women's sports.

Re: Lindsay OZ open draw

That's why she entered doubles. At least she meets Maria in the second round, she has better chance to beat her at this stage of the tournament than in the QF or SF.

Re: Lindsay OZ open draw

I almost like it. 2nd round is a great opportunity to take out a top seed. If she does it, I definitely expect her in the Quarters.

Come on Linds!

Re: Lindsay OZ open draw

That is horrendous! ive just had a look at the draw. The bottom quarter is a joke! Maria sucks in early rounds though...and hasn't played much recently! I cant believe we are in the same quarter as Henin AGAIN! Sucks.com

LINDSAY DAVENPORT!
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
