is it being shown on tv?

No, it's an exhibition. I really wanted Lindsay to win [yes, yes, I know it's only an exhibition] so she can get over wimbledon and win the aus open beating Maria in the process! Maria's one of the main contenders afterall.

ETA:

Lindsay and people like Andy Roddick and Mary Jo Fernandez are playing in a charity this weekend... it's organised by Chris Evert.

Lindsay will play Maria in Baltimore on december 17th.

Basically, everyone's right.

Andrew.

Lindsay's not winning this though. She'll show up and hit but won't push herself too hard. It's only an exhibiton. But Hype will actually care for some reason, and will therefore win. But Lindsay is smart. Exhibitions are stupid. Save your top game for the real events.

I hope you're right but how can Andy Roddick be playing an exhibition when he's playing the Davis Cup final in Spain??

Andrew.
Dec 3rd, 2004, 04:54 PM
And BTW, Maria is not a top 4 contender at Aus. She sucks on anything remotely slow.

Oh, maybe not Andy Roddick then... I just skimmed the article.

Andrew, Maria just won the YEC, that surface was sloooow.

yeah that's what I was thinking; she also got to the quarters of the French last year on the slowest surface EVER

Andrew.
Dec 3rd, 2004, 07:02 PM
The quarters of the French isn't a big deal. Habsudova and Plischke did it too. Had Bepa not tanked in the 3r chances are Princess Masha wouldn't have made it there. And, Suarez kicked her very hard in the quarters, in what was one of the funniest matches of the year.

I think we all know Sharapova won the YEC with luck, just like she wins everything.

Elldee
Dec 3rd, 2004, 07:23 PM
I disagree on.... everything. I think Maria is one of the biggest threats at the Aussie.

Myskina, Serena, Jen, Justine and Kim could be trouble but they're very beatable if Lindsay's pumped.

Elena, Svetlana, etc will be easy wins, IMO.

Intersting to see the views of Lindsay's fans...

We the Maria Sharapova fans like Lindsay DAvenport, cause hse si a friend of Maria... But why the hate?

Personally... I don't care who wins... as long as they have fun!

Elldee

I don't hate Maria, I think she's a big threat and to translate that would to be say, she's a damn good player.

Lindsay and Chandler. Heh.

There's also stupid 'articles' from the dude in charge of the Aussie Open talking about Lindsay retireing after the Open, but there's no quotes from Lindsay.

What matters is the good cause and heart from Lindsay and Maria.... they are no enemies! :D

About the WImbledon semi-final.... well something happened, but all of us the maria fans defiently believe that her match agaisnt Lindsya on the last Wimbledon was the most exciting she have ever played.

Just letting you know also that all of us, maria fans, have a great respect towards your player. Finally, good luck on this match Lindsay, do your best!

Nice one Luis :D
Thats exactly right...Maria and Lindsay are friends and I know Maria has great respect for Lindsay as a player of similar style.
I have great respect for Lindsay, probably more so than for any player other than Maria.
The Wimbledon SF was an amazing match not only for the way Maria won but for the brilliant tennis Lindsay was playing for most of the match and the spirit and enjoyment between the 2 players.
Its a shame I wont be to see this exhibition match, it would be great to be there.
Luckily Ill get to see Lindsay again at the Hopman Cup in January.

Dec 7th, 2004, 11:14 AM
if it is a new racket for next season i hope she doesnt have any problems like ferrero did this season....even though he changed manufacterors and lindsay is still wilson, all rakets are different right?

LindsayRulez
Dec 7th, 2004, 12:23 PM
the wilson n-codes are supposed to be the best things out there, so she should be just fine...I want one now!! lol And that is her 2001 hair, no?? I think she looks great! I love that outfit, she looks so slim!! Kick ass, Lindsay!

Elldee
Dec 7th, 2004, 04:52 PM
LOL, we notice her hair over the raquet!

She does look younger actually, maybe the headbands will return!

jacs
Dec 8th, 2004, 01:34 AM
From the pic, it looks like she's wearing it more like her 99 days.

But after years of using hammer rackets, she is suddenly switching to n-code? How different are they from each other?

Elldee
Dec 8th, 2004, 04:07 PM
Do you think maybe Lindsay was using a less powerful raquet because it was an exhibition and she doesn't want to thrash her opponent and make it more fun? Lindsay's power is integral to her game, so I'd expect to see her with her old raquet type next year.

soos n the sis
Dec 9th, 2004, 08:25 PM
hey Lindsayrules! I don't think I'm going. I'm kind of... grounded. can you believe this s***?! I was thinking of going anyway, but then my mother would kill me... and I need money for tickets, so it is complicated... I think it's oficial: I'm not going.

I don't really like Lindsay playing exhibition matches, I prefer her to concentrate on the actual WTA tour. I know I sound boring but as she is not a youngster any more in tennis terms I would prefer her to concentrate on the slams and tour events but of course its up to her and nothing to do with me at all. Charity matches are good of course but I am still not keen on her playing them now. I expected she would lose that match to Maria. As long as she wins the important ones against her!:wavey:

Golinds
Dec 30th, 2004, 06:56 PM
I agree, especially as she is so late on in her career, she needs to win as many WTA tornies as poss.
