Me too Joaco. Wonder if she can give Serena a fright like Najeda did?:D
Lets Go Lindsay :wavey: :worship: ;)
yeah, this is the revised draw... if not she would have drawn Venus in QF, which I thought was a petty, because I'm really looking forward for Lindsay to beat Venus SOON!!!!

What happened against Patty???? Tell me please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Apr 18th, 2004, 12:35 PM
there we go post match interview:
Following her loss to Patty Schnyder 6-3, 6-2 in QF of Family Circle
Q. You looked clearly frustrated out there at times. Was it a
matter of finding a rhythm or what was it?
LINDSAY DAVENPORT: Yeah, some days you go out there and it's not
your day. I really felt like -- you know, physically I really felt
almost wiped out. I don't know if it's from the last two weeks, and
I just wasn't on top of my game. And she came out, I thought she
played very well. If I could have gotten off to a little better
start, that might have helped a little bit and get some energy and
get some momentum, but she gave me very few errors, especially early
on. And in the past I've had a lot of great success against her
about dictating play, and just tonight I just never felt like I could
really get on top of a rally.
Q. Late in the second set you tried a drop shot and kind of missed
it and just looked at your racket and looked like you said maybe one
of those nights. Is that kind of how you feel about tonight? It's
just one of those nights that wasn't going your way?
LINDSAY DAVENPORT: Yeah. Absolutely. I mean it happens to all of
us, and you know, I've played so well throughout the year, and it was
bound to happen sooner or later. And some days you really can fight
through it and struggle and pull off a victory. I was able to do
that once last week, and I really wasn't tonight. A lot of that goes
to her. She played great, moving the ball around well, was mixing me
up quite a bit. And another thing, I just didn't feel like I was at
my A game. And that's going to happen at this level.
Q. You mentioned about how well you've played this year. Does that
make this more surprising, or like you said earlier, you just figure
this is going to happen at some point?
LINDSAY DAVENPORT: It's going to happen. I'm already going to put
it out of my mind, starting tomorrow going home. I mean I've gotta
look back in the last four months and be so proud of where I've gone
to and where I've come from and continue with my quest just to move
forward and get better, and you're going to have some setbacks and
some matches you don't play well, but I'm certainly not going to be
very dramatic about one loss.
Q. You had an opportunity to break her right off the bat. It looked
like you were going to break her, then all of a sudden she hit a real
nice drop shot you just fell for and from there it was all her.
LINDSAY DAVENPORT: From the first game on the first break point she
hit a line on her serve. Second one I set up well and missed an easy
forehand. I'd like to take that back and go back and be able to
break that first game, and like I said, go forward with some positive
energy and get off onto the right foot, and I did the first few
points. I just wasn't able to win some of those games early on to
maybe get her a little bit discouraged.
Q. Lindsay, when a player like yourself is a good clean striker of
the ball, when you have an off night, when you're going for your
shots like you normally would and they just don't fall in, does it
feel different or do you feel like you're hitting the same and they
LINDSAY DAVENPORT: It definitely feels a little different when
you're on top of the ball and you're hitting it well. I'm so lucky
because so often I do hit the ball well. I'm very lucky. I don't
have all that many off days, and you know, like she definitely was a
reason for it, and who knows what the other reason is, but you can
tell when it's not going well. I mean I thought if I could get going
a little bit early in the second set, I could maybe change the tide,
and again, I wasn't able to in either set get off to a good start.
Q. Is there anything about her being left hand? I know you said you
had success against her in the past.
LINDSAY DAVENPORT: Yeah. Normally lefty doesn't bother me very
much. I think her play and the depth she was getting on the ball was
more attributed to my not playing well than being a lefty.
Q. Was her style of play difficult to play against?
LINDSAY DAVENPORT: I think when she's playing well it definitely can
be. In the past I've been able to overpower her, be in control of
the points, and tonight, like I said, I just couldn't, and I don't
know exactly why, but you know, I'll go back and work on being
aggressive and on my toes a little bit more.
Q. Are you tired from your recent success?
LINDSAY DAVENPORT: You know, I really, for whatever reason, just
feel a little worn down, for whatever reason that is. It could be a
lot of matches last week, you know, playing some more here, and just
winning a lot of matches this year, but you know, I don't know if
that makes it today, but there's no question winning Amelia took a
lot out of me physically and emotionally. It was a very -- I was
very excited about that. I came here with, you know, plans to do
well and keep it going, but it just wasn't meant to be.
Q. What's the biggest difference between clay and hard court for you?
LINDSAY DAVENPORT: I mean clay slows the game down quite a bit. You
know, the ball doesn't take off as quickly as it would on a hard
court. It's a little bit easier for players to retrieve balls behind
the baseline sliding into balls and getting them back. You know,
just doesn't suit my game as well as a hard court where I'm able to
kind of pound through an opponent.

thank you for the interview!!!!!!!!! Let's go Lindsay, you keep training hard, you know the results will come!
Apr 18th, 2004, 04:48 PM
I am only just beginning to come to terms with the loss :confused: I really thought she would beat Patty even though I am well aware of how Patty can play.
Anyway heres to her next tourney. Get some rest Lindsay and come back fitter and stronger:D
Apr 22nd, 2004, 03:26 AM
Lindsay was really positive in her interview. She's probably really tired from so much tennis. Like she said, just an off day. Better to have one against Patty than in a grandslam semifinal! ;)
