a TOP project ... interested?

hello TOPs,

i have thought of this idea whilst hitting heavily with my tennis racket and thinking hopelessly of lindsay. sigh ...

anyway, i was thinking of making a lindsay career timeline that we can look to and marvel and remember the good and not so good times during lindsay's career.

our aim is to make this as thorough, preferably from 2001 and backwards.

example:

2001:

ao - semifinal
toray ppo - winner
etc, etc


WE NEED WRITE UPS, PICS and other stuff like this ...

come on guys, i know this would require a bit more effort but it would be a great way for us TOPs to bond together more (i mean, besides our passion for parties )



OH AND GOOD NEWS! JAN IS COMING BACK SOON!


COMMENTS and others post here!

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.

A great idea jacs, I'll see what I can root out with being head spy and all. It seems that I'm now able to post from uni now - I now use internet explorer instead of netscape - I've just figured it out!

I can try to scan in the Lindsay intervievs from ACE magazine and post them here if you want. Then we could get a couple of her trophey pics next to the tournies where she was a winner!

Catch you later,
-Rachel

i'm up for it. dont have a clue how to put pictures on. just a thought though..how are we gonna do cos we will all be posting stuff at diffeerent times and possibly double the info.

so i thought that all those who want to get involved will be dedicated a year...eg jacs-1994 etc etc. or someone could be incharge of getting pics for certain years..just an idea.

well im up 4 it......as usual

just let me know what u want me to do....but remember i cant do the pics...sorry

niftymk & kelly - great! i was actually thinking of maybe assigning years to TOPs ... quite difficult though as not all of us are here.

and pics are not the only thing we need ... we also are in search of results, injury times, exhibitions played, TV guestings, or that sort ...

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.

Great idea jacs. Id love to help

Men när natten är ljus - I ditt sjuttiotalshus
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

Here are a couple of sites that might be useful, one's really great and is regularly updated and the other hasn't been updated since Lindsay won the Aussie Open in 2000 LOL

This is the really good one, with updates, pictures, stats and results:

http://home.das-berlin.de/lindsay_davenport/

This is the not so great one but it does have some useful stats etc, it also has lots of links to interviews & articals-even one from '96, so I guess it's not so bad, it just doesn't get updated:

http://www.lindsaydavenport.org.uk/

Hope this is useful for you guys

all these are so great guys! good work TOPs! keep the research coming.

and kelly, no dear, you are not sad. i used to do clippings of every lindsay tournament before. and i computed rankings. now that's worse, LOL.




okay, ive been thinking about this and ive decided that maybe we should do it as a group. so that the 'bonding' maybe better for us all. it may take sometime but it would be more fun that way. i guess


okay, let's start from 1991 .let's find as many things we can about lindsay from that year. post them here.

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.
