View Full Version : Please just don't do it.

Jan 29th, 2005, 03:55 AM
The general messages forum has become a place for bashing Lindsay Davenport, and it physically makes me sick to hear people talk about her like that. The only worse thing is if her own fans do the same. Don't get caught up in it.

I'm leaving this board for a few weeks until everyone stops talking about how bad they think Lindsay is. Of course I'm depressed that Lindsay lost, but I'm more depressed by the way the supposed "tennis fans" are acting.

Please stay loyal to Lindsay

Don't worry - as pessimistic as I am in here I'm not even going to go and try and answer some of those topics in the GM forum - it's just a lost cause. I'll hide out in here.

Big question will be is Lindsay going to play Pan Pac Open.

Jan 29th, 2005, 04:00 AM
I'm a pessimist, but I've stayed pretty level here today.

I think Lindsay will likely play Tokyo. I'm not sure she'll do too well, but I think she'll play. If she doesn't I think that's a very bad sign.

I feel the same LindsayRulez.....It is pathetic....I want to say so many things but I can't...I want to hide here....I hope you change your mind and come back soon. Lindsay will make the right choice. She will asses this and come back bigger and better.

I think we'll find out in her press conference if she's going to play Pan Pac Open - the only thing that might lean her to not play it is the amount of time she's played in the last 2 weeks - since she then has to prepare herself for Qatar and Dubai, etc.

I really hate to say this, but it's not out of sadness or anger - it's from the heart. I'm beginning to hope Lindsay goes into retirement. There was something in that speech, and I don't know what it was, but something really hit me - that something hit her - that this just isn't what she wants to do. She's obviously totally in love with John and doesn't like being away from him. Each day she has to get up and work her ass of - for a final. Finals aren't what she plays for. There was something there, and I think she'd actually be happier at home on a full time basis with John.

Oh Lindsay. I think there's something she and John know that we all don't. He was crying during and after her speech.

I agree Andrew with that last comment - heck they were all crying even Adam - you know something's up when he's crying.

Jan 29th, 2005, 04:12 AM
What makes me even more sad is that I really don't think we'd see much of her after she retires. I think she'd make a great commentator, but that's not her. She's a very private person. Once she retires, she'll go home to Laguna Beach, have a kid or two, and live happily with her husband. I just don't see her going back in the spotlight, and if she did, not for at least another 5-10 years.

Jan 29th, 2005, 04:14 AM
gosh its starting to hit me, that Lindsay will retire at the end of this year, possibly earlier, i too was very surprised her husband was crying and Lindsay seemed all choked up, ok now i'm going to cry :sad:

Jan 29th, 2005, 04:17 AM
See this is why Jon shouldn't attend GS finals - he causes everyone to bawl - oh yeah she's definitely a private person and the scenario you painted above is definitely one that will most likely happen.

Who knows we might see her comes out to watch a match from time to time and that's when we can say "that's what happened to LD" *sigh*

I was bawling yesterday from her speech, today I'm just disappointed that she couldn't win the title - I came to terms a long time ago that she would be retiring this year - hence why I made it to all her matches in Australia that I could make.

I don't ever want to see Lindsay back on court unless she's smiling, enjoying it, and knowing it's the right decision. I would rather Lindsay have the best time of her life in a first round loss than this (And I would rather see some mini-Lindsays than her feel like she is just prolonging a life she so wants). I just hope Lindsay that does the right thing and what's best for her. I'm going to drown my sorrows in a hot shower.

Jan 29th, 2005, 08:24 AM
i felt so sorry for her. i dont know what happened! she was so annoyed/upset with herself even during the ceremony

they actually made me cry with some of there comments.

it is slowley hitting home but this is why we must enjoy every moment from here on....good bad and the ugly.

Jan 29th, 2005, 04:46 PM
OMG!!! How can i get over this?? I did'nt even attend to my practice today. I hate tennis now!!!!!!

Jan 30th, 2005, 05:06 AM
I read somewhere that Lindsay will take a few years off any tennis-related matter after she retires. Then she said that she will get back into it someway.

Just ignore GM. It's the best way.

Oh, Lindsay... I still luv ya dearie.

Jan 30th, 2005, 03:59 PM
me too. i have avoided GM as much as poss cos some of those comments people have made just make me :mad: so ill just hang out here for a while until it all calms down.
I hope Lindsay dosent retire yet but i just want her to be happy.
I still love you Linds. :hug:

I hardly ever go into GMs and have not done so for 2 years or more. its just not worth getting into the arguments etc. There are so many irrational posters in there and I am afraid to say it quite nasty ones too as well as just plain silly people.

Stick to our TOP Forum and be happy for Lindsay whatever she decides to do and whenever. I just cherish all the matches she plays now, win or lose.

Go Lindsay:wavey: :angel:
