Lindsay in Eastbourne.

French Open, Smench Open... roll on Eastbourne!

I never know how I want Lindsay to do when she plays the week before a slam... I don't want her to do badly and be demoralised, but I don't want her to have tough matches and not be fresh for wimbledon.

More importantly, is anyone going?? I think I'm going to buy tickets tomorrow either for Monday/Tuesday or Tuesday/Wednesday. If I get monday/tuesday there will be no way I can miss Lindsay, but if I do tuesday/wed I'll probably see her and then Ivanovic too... thoughts? The schedule for monday last year was pretty grim.

Lindsay Davenport

Elena Bovina | Anastasia Myskina | Flavia Pennetta

Q. Give us an update on the kid.

Re: Lindsay in Eastbourne.

why do the top players not get it...eastbourne is WINDY! Birmingham is awesome - nice little tier 3! Jankovic and Pova have the right idea there!

LINDSAY DAVENPORT!
Say what you like about Davenport, but shes achieved what most others could only dream of!

Mary Pierce MARTINA HINGIS! Kim Clijsters Ana Ivanovic

Re: Lindsay in Eastbourne.

Have been to Eastbourne every year since 2003 and there have been days when it has been windy but it isn't as bad as all that. I am going to Birminghan too this year so it will be nice to compare the two tourneys.

Eastbourne is a must this year as Lindsay is playing and next year it will be fantastic as a joint WTA/ATP event

Re: Lindsay in Eastbourne.

Eastbourne should be great this year, Ivanovic, Sharapova and Lindsay. Big babe tennis will reign supreme. Hope Lindsay goes far

Re: Lindsay in Eastbourne.

If Lindsay doesn't play I'll CRY. The field's pretty weak this year... I'd pick Lindsay for the title without a draw.

Re: Lindsay in Eastbourne.

I thought Sharapova and Ivanovic were playing this year?

Anyway hopefully Lindsay will show them how it's done on grass. With Henin, Clijsters and Rubin out, Lindsay will be the only former champ in the draw unless Kuzy plays.

Re: Lindsay in Eastbourne.

I think it's not the first time that Maria enters Eastbourne. After RG she usually withdraws and plays Birmingham instead.

She is at the moment, but I've heard her say that she'll only play Eastbourne over Birmingham if she reaches the final of RG.

So she probably won't play

Re: Lindsay in Eastbourne.

^^^ though admittedly Maria might pull out and head for Bham instead. I hope Lindsay sticks with Eastbourne now.
