Thumbs down Lindsay withdraws from Moscow! :-(

noooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!! <IMG SRC="smilies/sad.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/sad.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/sad.gif" border="0">
Eurosport commentator said that her withdrawal (as Venus's) doesnt depend from fear to fly or from fear to stay in Moscow but cause Usa is going to attack Afganistan and American airports will be closed for long time during the war so they are scared to not can comeback at home after tourneys.sorry for my bad english,i hope u understand what I mean.

It's not shyness I have. It's just that I'm not one of those people who loves to open a newspaper of magazine and see myself all the time. I don't like that at all. I prefer to play my tennis which I love, and with which I've been blessed.

I'm gutted because I won't see Lindsay but I totally respect her decision and am sure I would do the same if I were in her position.

Sadly, these are uncertain times.

I didn't really expect this, but i understand her dicision <IMG SRC="smilies/sad.gif" border="0">

Does this mean she also won't play Filderstadt? And what about Linz and Zurich?

Och du är ånga, spår av ett moln
I en dröm om att fly till någonting nytt

Och du håller så hårt och när längtan blir svår
Så är jag din, din, din att ta med
Att ta ut, att ta in i någonting nytt

Yeah - i can understand it too - i certainly know how i felt waiting to get a plane home so i wouldnt argue with that at all. I guess this means that theres a strong possibility that the other tourneys will be affected by withdrawals too <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0">

How would you feel
If i was to kneel
Right down, at your feet
Right now?

Lol Mae..er I mean, Angelica. <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">

I hope we do get to see her play 9even if I don't with Aussies shocking coverage!) but it would be great for her! And maybe even beat Venus! <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/berzerk.gif" border="0">

Do you think she can beat Venus? and What do you think about Lindsay's confidence?

but I didn't speak up because I was
a Protestant. Then they came for me,
but by that time there wasn't anyone
left to speak up for me."

Lindsay didnt ever lose to Venus on carpet.head to head is : 5-0 for Lindsay on carpet.it means that Venus doesnt like indoor surfaces,while Lindsay loves them so i think she can beat Venus for sure....depends only from her shape.if she is in shape,she is better than Venus on carpet!!

LOVE U LINDSAY!! <IMG SRC="smilies/hearts.gif" border="0">

Well Lindsay has been in shape for a while now - she looks great! I was lloking at the difference between now and Wimby 99 and she is the slimest now!!!
Gotta love that OF at US Open, I am so proud of her! Will never get over that match! How the hell does she make those shots???
