once again lindsay gets the shitty draw.....henin, williams,golovin----who i think could cause an upset.

Apr 10th, 2005, 01:42 PM

we havent even won Amelia Island yet! this is too premature!

this is next week!

Apr 11th, 2005, 08:04 AM
Okay, now we can think about Charleston without jinxing! No doubles.

Apr 11th, 2005, 08:30 AM
I can't remember how many points she has to defend here, my mind has gone blank as to what stage she reached. She did play here last year didn't she?

Apr 11th, 2005, 10:25 AM
I believe she lost in the semis to Serena 6-1 7-5.

Apr 11th, 2005, 06:33 PM
No, she lost in the quarters to Patty Schnyder 6-3 6-2 [or something similar to that scoreline]. Lindsay will defend her points and then anything from then on is a bonus.

Apr 11th, 2005, 07:09 PM
well, pfffft to the draw! Lindsay can still do it IMHO. She did great last week and she seems to really get her rhythm the more events she plays consecutively.

I was just on Ebay to see if I could find a Lindsay Davenport bobblehead (which i can't yet) but I came across this: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=1226&item=5184288835&rd=1

For those who can't make the Family Circle Cup (like me....being in the UK), FCC are running some auctions on Ebay to raise money for their charities. This is one of the lots and they are offering to get Lindsay to personalise an auto to the winning bidder so it would read, "[Your Name], All the Best, Lindsay Davenport". Two day's is left on the auction and it is up to US$26.00 (about 13.79). I have a feeling that it's going to keep going up with it being personalised.

Pity, I can't afford it this week :(

Oh well, just thought I'd let the rest of you know.

thanks for letting us know :D

Apr 11th, 2005, 09:48 PM
Justine overcame Jankovic but apparently Justine was a bit slow and it took 3 sets and Petrova beat Jankovic in Amelia who Lindsay destroyed.

Apr 13th, 2005, 04:23 AM
Lindsay is number 1 and confident so i think she will beat justine if they play. i think her biggest problem will again be venus. if Venus plays like she did the 1st set of their match in amelia island Lindsay might be in trouble. of course Lindsay could also be playing better than that. We shall see.

Go Lindsay!!!!!!!!

Apr 13th, 2005, 10:34 AM
Lindsay better play better than she did in Amelia Island... she was far too passive.

foreva lindsay
Apr 13th, 2005, 01:53 PM
she plays 3rd on today :D goooooooooooooooo DAVEY!!!

Apr 13th, 2005, 02:47 PM
Go Lindsay:)

Apr 13th, 2005, 04:01 PM
It won't be a tough match anyway... Just wait for for the quarterfinal against Venus...

Apr 13th, 2005, 05:01 PM
good luck linds ::D:

Apr 13th, 2005, 07:17 PM
can i just say in this opening set she served first, won her game to love with 2 aces on the first 2 points!!! thats my girl!

Apr 13th, 2005, 07:18 PM
Looks like Lindsay [touch wood!] will face Kutusova - who she beat in the third round at Indian Wells rather than the seeded Zuluaga.

Apr 13th, 2005, 07:27 PM
She's killing her! i think tehyre could be some bagling!

Apr 13th, 2005, 07:29 PM
at 5-0 lindsays stats are awsome!!!

2 aces
83% first serves
100% second serves
0 double faults
9 winners
20 points won altogether

Apr 13th, 2005, 07:35 PM
ok lindsay now sucks! 5-2

*added bit* but won first set 6-2

Apr 13th, 2005, 08:11 PM
she won 6-2 6-2!

Go linds!

foreva lindsay
Apr 13th, 2005, 08:11 PM
and won second 6-2 :D:D

Apr 13th, 2005, 08:20 PM
Looking at the draw and who's left [Pierce just got knocked out], Lindsay has the nastiest draw of anybody in Henin Hardenne follow by Venus and then a final.

Apr 13th, 2005, 08:37 PM
oh rubbish! how is that when she is seed 1?????

Apr 13th, 2005, 08:58 PM
Crappy draw for Lindsay. But now she is much more confident, so she should defeat Venus easily...

Apr 13th, 2005, 11:46 PM
well done lindsay.

Apr 13th, 2005, 11:47 PM
well, a good win by Lindsay! :woohoo: Although the draw looks a bit tough, I think a few wins strung together against these players could be the confidence Lindsay needs on the clay surface.

Lets keep this going! Who's next vs. Lindsay and when?


Apr 13th, 2005, 11:52 PM
kutusova tomorrow i think. not sure

Apr 14th, 2005, 12:41 AM
Nice Lindsay. I hope they televise you're match tomorrow. I would LOVE to see you and Kutuzova.

I CAN'T wait to see Lindsay-Henin Hardene. I really want to Lindsay to win the tournament but really want to see that matchup. Maybe Iveta will knock her out? Doubt it. Oh well, it will be interesting at least.

Apr 14th, 2005, 09:39 AM
I don't rate Benesova but maybe she's better on clay than on hardcourts. I want the match to take place and although it's clay, if Lindsay's going to win against Justine [and she'll be dissed in GM if she doesn't] then it's now!

Apr 14th, 2005, 03:41 PM
Good Luck Lindsay today against Kutusova... keep your matches short and prepare for the big ones. GO GO GO LINDSAY!!!!!

Apr 14th, 2005, 07:39 PM
Gooooooooooo DAVEY!!!

Apr 15th, 2005, 01:29 AM
Lindsay won 6-3 6-1. I watched the score board and I got worried when her 1st serve % plumeted from 60% down to 47% by the end of the first set. She managed to get that back up to 52% in her last service game of the match.

Yet again she was 5-0 up in the first and then dropped the next 3 games before closing the set out :grr:

2 dub faults, 3 aces, and 31 winners. Fastest serve 114mph. I'm quite impressed that these days she is serving consistantly in the 100/110mph section, whereas she only used to do between 95-100....a good serve used to be 105mph. I believe that, 105mph was her fastest when she won wimby in '99......well, she certainly isn't getting slow as she progresses in age.

Next up for Lindsay, I think is Justine Hammer-Hard'un but correct me if I'm wrong. An interesting prospect me thinks and surely a match to be shown on Eurocrap.

Friday, Eurocrap are showing "1/4" finals live on Euro1 at 18.00 UK time. At time of me going to bed, there was no schedule for friday, so I just hope it's Lindsay's match.....even though I'll be at work :sad:

All in all, a relatively good win......no time for snoozing against hammer-hard'un though!


Apr 15th, 2005, 03:39 AM
Lindsay vs. Justine. On clay. I'm scared.

Apr 15th, 2005, 03:43 AM
i really hope Lindsay can take out Justine. all she needs to do is stay focused everything else will fall into place, c'mon Lindsay!

Apr 15th, 2005, 04:03 AM
She knows she can do it. She must have the belief in herself. She is the #1 player in the world!!! Good luck Lindsay tomorrow against Justine!

Well Done Lindsay...now this will be a MASSIVE test

LETS KICK SOME ASS ;) you know you can do it :D

Apr 15th, 2005, 08:24 AM
Little factoid: the first time they met on Clay (and I think, ever) Lindsay won 7-5 in the final set. It was RG 99. Granted JHH is way better now though...

Apr 15th, 2005, 09:14 AM
yeah but so is lindsay too!

Apr 15th, 2005, 10:10 AM
positives....lindsay is number one, playing with confidence, justine has had some tough matches fatigue could be a factor...

negatives....its on clay and justine cheats.

kick her ass lindsay.....i want revenge for that ozzy open match.

lindsay is due on court not befor 1pm which is 6pm our time so eurosport will show it

EURO1...6-7.30PM LIVE

Apr 15th, 2005, 11:05 AM
Lets go davey porty! Kick some henin.....i mean come on....shes been taken to 3 sets almost every game shes had........she must be knackered!

I bet henins just as scared of this match as i am !

I have faith lets go linds!

Apr 15th, 2005, 11:18 AM
come on lindsay!

Apr 15th, 2005, 01:46 PM
Lindsay all the way! You must beat Justine!!!!

Did you know Justine is playing with the same racquet Lindsay is. Again. What a copy cat. :devil: :p

Apr 15th, 2005, 02:36 PM
c'mon Lindsay, you can do it! I'll be at work while you're playing, but I hope to come home to some good news and a dvd of you beating Justine! ;)

Apr 15th, 2005, 05:10 PM

Apr 15th, 2005, 09:10 PM
gutted.....those dam warm up sessions! Cant believe it :(

Apr 15th, 2005, 10:29 PM
oh dear :sobbing: Did eurocrap not show it then?! Gits! I even set the tape as well.

Lindsay always seems to injure herself in warm-up sessions......it's probably just a muscle strain and will heal in a couple of weeks. I have a feeling that we won't see her until Roland Garros now which will probably mean that her #1 will go before then.

Hope she will be OK. Well done anyway for taking the first set! Darn injuries! :grrr:


Apr 16th, 2005, 05:07 AM
:sad: Lindsay... but at least she gets a good rest now :)

Apr 16th, 2005, 08:59 AM
:( Poor Lindsay. I hope maria plays like crap and doesnt steal her no1 ranking! she doesnt deserve it!!!!! ha ha its LINDSAYS! Anyhoo im sure Lindsay will steal it right back

Apr 16th, 2005, 11:38 AM
This sucks, Justine was not playing well at all and the clay court was more like a hardcourt... this would have been Lindsay's. I don't like Justine, she hit two balls really hard right near Lindsay after losing points... from when she retired I doubt Lindsay likes her either, it wasn't exactly warm.

Apr 16th, 2005, 12:00 PM
i noticed the hittin of the balls as well...lindsay kinda glanced at her on the second one i think.

Apr 16th, 2005, 12:50 PM
i noticed the hittin of the balls as well...lindsay kinda glanced at her on the second one i think.

Yep, it was damn close! Lindsay was a step away from it... in Dubai against Zheng Lindsay had the courtesy of belting the ball out of the stadium.

This loss is really bad for me... she didn't beat Justine, she didn't win a tier I on clay when the draw was quite good and the surface was fast. Damn injuries!

Apr 16th, 2005, 03:14 PM
But there's no doubt in my mind that Lindsay would have won that match if she weren't injured. From game one she was limping and still took the first set pretty easily; Justine is nowhere near as strong as she was before she came back. This has to give Lindsay confidence for the next time they play, preferably on a grass or hard court ;)

Apr 16th, 2005, 03:52 PM
lindsay played excellently imo considering the injury and would have trashed justine if she were fit! her shots were amazing!!! NEver mind. It was awful seeing her limp off at the end though :( :( :(

Apr 16th, 2005, 04:21 PM
Of course, Linda can win Justine very easily if she didn't get hurt.
Now, i am really afraid that Maria will be the next No.1, because Lindsay will not go to Europe until the French Open.
Hopefully, Maria will get injured. Sounds a little contemptible, but i hope so.
God blesses Linda keeping No.1 until she retires! Thank you.

if only...it sucks! just when shes out to win another title and on clay too!!! :rolleyes:

Apr 16th, 2005, 06:11 PM
I never hope a player gets injured... if Lindsay got a major injury now she wouldn't be back. I'm sure Lindsay will get it back as the top four in the world at the moment were last years wimbledon semi finalists.

Apr 16th, 2005, 06:48 PM
Linda. That sounds funny. Sounds like some prude, old, wrinkly secretary. :)

Sad for Lindsay. That second set was a little blah and so was the first a tad. I think there was only one WOW shot Lindsay had, that backhand she the painted the line with. Other than that, it was very meh like. But I'm glad that she didn't risk another injury and continue. Be healthy and lead the U.S. to another Fed Cup title Lindsay and just WIN EVERYTHING!

Pst, I'm getting confirmed tomorrow (Me Catholic) and when the Bishop asks me what he wants me to pray for, I will tell him, "For Lindsay to win one more slam!!!" Hehe.

Apr 16th, 2005, 06:57 PM
YAY!!!! u seriously doin that?!

Apr 16th, 2005, 11:05 PM
Of course! Lindsay MUST win another slam. Hopefully this Bishop man will make some "Shzam!" and Lindsay will win another!

Apr 17th, 2005, 09:32 AM
Any news on Lindsay's injury? I want to hear her say something about it.

Apr 17th, 2005, 10:22 AM
www.familycirclecup.com --- click on player interviews. She says she's going to go to the Fed Cup place, get treatment and be part of the team... she says this injury usually takes about a week to heal and she thinks she'll be fine by the fed cup matches.

Apr 17th, 2005, 12:34 PM
schweet. its only a strain so its not too serious. shes not torn anything or broken anything so she will be fine!
