yeah but Jelena D's still in there and behind Venus Williams would be the inform hardcourt player at the moment - personally I'd love to see a Dokic / Davenport final and hopefully see Lindsay kick her butt <g> but first I'm just hoping Lindsay can win her SF

oh, i think it will be Chanda Rubin vs. Lindsay Davenport in the Final, with Lindsay coming through in 3 sets!

but guys, the 3 other players left in the draw have ALL lost to Davenport in the past 2 weeks, when she was just returning from a 9-month injury! and Chanda was the only one of the 3 to take a set from her!wow! so if Lindsay plays anywhere near her best stuff, this title is hers for the 2nd straight year!

:bunce:

Let's Go Lindsay!SHE'S BACK BABY!

I like what Lindsay said in her press conference after her match yesterday:

"If you had told me this a while ago, I'd have been ecstatic," Davenport said of her results.

"Now that I'm here, I'd like to go a step farther than the semis. It's a great start, a very consistent start, but again, you want to break out of the mold of being a consistent performer and be a contender."

****

Today is her make or break day - if she beats Sugiyama to make it into the final it'll be another step in her recovery and ultimately a contender. Who knows today might be third time lucky for her and she may make the final - since in the last few years she's definitely owned this tournament either in the form of winning or being runner-up.

YES!! Lindsay beat ai 6-3, 6-4!!! That is SO great news!

Come on Lindsay, you can take this title home for the second year in a row. BTW where do you get the press conferences Lindsay does after a match??

Anyway, hope you can win tomorrow. We'll all be so happy, and the final itself it's a recovery and such a big step, not only phisically but also mentally. Now you will know Lindsay you're back at the top again!!!

Joaco

OK TOPs let's bounce for Lindsay to win the final

sometimes they'll float around on the net or rock up in articles - the above one was in the article.

This one was in a Reuters article:

"There's no question I'm tired physically," she said. "Mentally, I'm still excited. I have a chance to win my first title of the year and I didn't think it would come nearly this quick."

****

Let's hope Lindsay finally fixes her toss problem because if she's playing like this with a dodgy serve, God only knows how she'll play when her killer serve returns.

thanks gossipcom! Lindsay had a comfortable win today over Ai, but she was a little sloppy in the 2nd set and lost her concentration a bit. but she stay tough at then end when she was down 0-30 on her serve at 5-4! good serving got her through.

joaco! wow, that's the most amount of bouncies i've ever seen in a post!

Good Luck in the Finals against Chanda!

okay sometimes I hate Lindsay's attitude on court - I'll admit it, the slumped shoulder *arghh* that's all part of confidence level - but damn I love her mental picture off the court and what she's been saying in her press conferences.

re: comeback

"There's no question I'm tired physically," Davenport said, "but mentally I'm excited that I still have the chance to win my first title of the year. I didn't think it would come nearly this quickly.

"My biggest fear, besides not being able to play again, was coming back and not being good and not being successful. I've been in the top three for five years maybe, and I didn't want to come back out here and just be a top 50 player.

"It was important to get off to a good start, because if you start off coming back from an injury not playing well it can sometimes just keep snowballing and you lose all your confidence.
