It's so annoying! I'm watching the match on Belgium tv and they keep talking about "how great kim plays" and "how she works on Lindsay" I mean, in the first set Lindsay didn't even do something out there. I knew she had some difficulties with the running and reacting thing.. but this is outrageous.. Come on DAVEY!

Well, Kim's making her pay for it. Kim won the first set 6-1.

Well they also said she was playing poorly ;) And yes, Lindsay's moving is worse than ever it seems.

I wanted Kim to have a match in which she really needed to WORK. But I'm afraid it won't happen in this match... 3-1 Kim in second set.

Ofcourse she's making her pay of it! I mean it's a grandslam right and Kim is a great player... but this isn't the way the number one of the world (even if she's bad on gravel) should be beaten up by Kim

I've hoped that Linds would put a lot into the match ....

But it looks she gave up after *3-1 in 1 st set. Babsi Schett on EuSp(co-comm) was predicting this pathway and is now dissappointed that Linds doesn't fight for the points :confused: )

come on Linds, hang in !

Yeah, Babsi Schett is criticizing Daveys motivation as well("She isn't even moving") and said that a number one should at least try to win, Schett: "She knew befor the match that she won't win and seems not really be keen on fighting"
Well, I guess she is right....I really like Lindsay, but a true number one SHOULD fight!!!!

well, kim normally steps off the pedal if she wins the first set. davey could get lucky and win a few more games.

she also said smth like: "for me, the real number one should be able to play well on every surface"

The saddest thing is that Davenport's complete lack of effort was totally predictable :tape:

Her attitude is really disgraceful. And it's not as if this is a one-off. She does it all the time! I can't wait for the lazy bitch to retire.

I don't think Lindsay came into Paris with the mental attitude of being able to win the tournament, much less against Kim.

Lindsay is another who will likely never win a Grand Slam singles title again. Not because she isn't a good enough player, but she gets too down on herself.

I wish Davenport hadn't even entered the tournament if she was to play like this when faced with somone she knew she could lose to.
She won't be missed when she retires. Well.. she will be but continuing to play for a few more mouths would be a nightmere for us fans.

dododo
May 29th, 2005, 10:53 AM
I mean how many contenders do you have at the moment for the title? There are maybe 4/5 girls who could win the trophy and these were exactly the ones everybody could name from the beginning..

Actually she still can be the number one in the world so i think she would be missed as hell. It's 3-3 so maybe she actually can fight back..

I don't know how many times DAvenhorse has let this shit happen. She just steps on the court knowing she stands no chance. She's the kind of player who loses to the same players over and over again and doesn't really do much to change a thing.

Some of you just need to shut the fuck up.

if davenport didnt give a shit, she could have let it slide after going down a set and a break against Srebotnik.

If davenport didnt give a shit, she could have let it slide when 2 pts from defeat against Peng.

She could have given up against Razzano.

She could have thrown in the towel when a set and 1-3 down here. As of now shes 4-3 up.

The fact is Lindsay is playing like crap. Kim will win Im 99% sure. But she is trying. Thats obvious.

shut the fuck up. She DID fight in her last 3 set matches. She was 2 points away from defeat against Peng, she played over 2 hours to defeat Razzano. Now she's 4-4 up in the second set coming down from 1-3.

no I won't! The thing is Davenhorse just is so used to losing those players that she doesn't make as much efforts to beat them as she does against lower ranked players who she knows she can beat somehow. Her H2Hs against particular players are a clear indication.

shut up you Lindsay haters! I don't think you understand what an obstacle clay is for someone who doesn't move well anyway, you constantly feel uneasy, like you're gonna fall if you make one wrong move.

If Lindsay didn't fight for her matches she wouldn't be in this round, hence her first three results this week.

Even if Lindsay doesn't win today, she won more games than most people gave her a chance to so fuck off!

Kim needs to learn that she's the one who has to take control. She's the only one who's gonna win her the match, Lindsay's not going to give it to her! Each time she gets tight, she doesn't go for her shots anymore. I really hope she can still win this, but my gut feeling is telling me that she'll have a VERY hard time doing that. It's her mental approach that is just not strong enough... She needs to hang in there and struggle trough! Don't give in Kim, you still have a chance!

Yeah, Babsi Schett is criticizing Daveys motivation as well("She isn't even moving") and said that a number one should at least try to win, Schett: "She knew befor the match that she won't win and seems not really be keen on fighting"
Well, I guess she is right....I really like Lindsay, but a true number one SHOULD fight!!!!

I don't know how she is world number one then, with that attitude.
