She has a good chance I think. Not to much competion for her. Although there are a few who could give her problems.

when does Bali start?

Elldee
Sep 9th, 2005, 08:18 AM
Monday for the plebs. Lindsay would start on Wed or Thurs. I hope they don't make her wear anything that makes her look silly.

sveta
Patty
Molik.

thats all i can think of

oh and i spose jankovic will be there too seeing as she does everything...

foreva lindsay
Sep 9th, 2005, 10:07 AM
Lindsay v Molik final would be good :D

Wow!!! Still shocked by what happened in the quarters... But I think she can bounce out there, and win another title!! I'm sorry, but I won't be able to be present as often as I used to, because I'm studying medicine right now, and it's much more harder than what I used to do... But still supporting Lindsay!!!! (",)

lindsayno1
Sep 9th, 2005, 11:08 AM
yeah im over that now. was just annoyed AND tired at the time.

Shit happens... it was a bad day. Move on.... lots of titles from now on please!

yep lets move on, more titles awaits!

hope linds can pick up more confidence by winning these smaller tornaments, gd luck in the asia tour! :)

Sep 9th, 2005, 03:34 PM
Yes, slam pressure choking out of the way, time to kick butt and go undefeated in the fall.

Go Lindsay.

Andrew..
Sep 9th, 2005, 08:26 PM
Q. Are your plans still the same, or is it still too early to tell after this disappointment?
LINDSAY DAVENPORT: You know, I would never make a rash decision over something, over one match. From here I know I'm going to Bali this weekend, so look forward to that, with my husband. Then maybe kind of figure out the rest of the fall out when I get back from there.
I don't know exactly. The fall has never been a particularly exciting time for me to play, so I'm not sure how much I'll play there. Then, you know, hopefully feel ready to go and start training for Australia at some point. I hope that I have that desire in me when the time comes around.

Q. So nothing scheduled between now and the championships?
LINDSAY DAVENPORT: I think there are some stuff (smiling). I don't know. I mean, I am supposed to play one or two tournaments, so I'll see what happens.


More like five, dear. I guess we should expect withdraws from everything after Bali.

Andrew..
Sep 9th, 2005, 08:27 PM
Monday for the plebs. Lindsay would start on Wed or Thurs. I hope they don't make her wear anything that makes her look silly.
Bali doesn't have any byes, so Lindsay has to play a first round match. Thus, a Monday or Tuesday start, likely against some scrub.

against some unranked player with no serve and a dead backhand.

Elldee
Sep 10th, 2005, 08:55 AM
I don't know if Svetlana's playing so if Lindsay doesn't win it'll be because she's in a post-US Open funk!

I actually found Lindsay's answer about the fall tournements a bit annoying... she's had some great success in the fall and won some big tournements which really suit her game AND, although the surface is ridiculously slow, I wish she'd take the champs more seriously.

Andrew..
Sep 10th, 2005, 08:07 PM
I agree. Oh well, I guess she just wants to make babies with Leach this fall.

Andrew..
Sep 10th, 2005, 08:14 PM
According to the tournament site, Lindsay has arrived in Bali.

Kelly
Sep 11th, 2005, 11:08 AM
eurosport are not showing any of bali....told u i'd get it wrong

Elldee
Sep 11th, 2005, 02:26 PM
It's a tier III, they don't show anything below a tier II.

Lindsay will probably play Fujiwara then Mirza after a first round bye and then is meant to meet Molik in the semis [yeah, right] and then Patty in the final. There's no reason why Lindsay shouldn't win; Top seed. WINNER!

Andrew..
Sep 11th, 2005, 04:23 PM
But, we're not motivated by these fall tournaments. So please hand Rika some nice quality points, and then bang Leach.

Right Kuznetsovas withdrawn, so this should be a walk in the park for Lindsay.

Yes, because Kuznetsova's tennis is so impressive this year.

RayRob
Sep 13th, 2005, 03:13 PM
mmmm, I wonder who the guitar belongs to? Maybe it is Lindsay's which is probably why Jon's carrying her tennis stuff :confused: A lot of tennis players seem to play the guitar to relax.....I know the Williams sisters do, I think Monica Seles does too - it seems to be an easy enough instrument to carry about when traveling.

I would never put my acoustic guitar in a soft case like that - it can easily get knocked about and damaged :o I have a nice solid case for mine.......though my bass guitar lives in a soft case when on it's travels......though it never travels very far anymore....because where the Bass goaes, the amp would have to go too - and that is far too much trouble! :lol:

In the pics on yahoo Lindsay looks awesome and I really like her comments post-match about how she's happy to be on court again after the tough loss in New York and she 'wouldn't have come all this way if she didn't want to win'. If Lindsay wins, which she should, it'll put her in a nice position to set up a streak through Beijing.

I hope Lindsay decided to play @ Beijing is part of preparation for YEC. :o

Andrew..
Sep 15th, 2005, 01:13 AM
Lindsay's body looks smokin' in that last pic.

I'm not sure I buy the "I wouldn't come here if I didn't want to win" line, though. One, they're likely paying her six figures to show. Two, she goes to Bali for vacations anyway. So, okay. But, I like that she says she wants to get back on court. I guess the fall season means something to us now, or something.

Why aren't we playing Filderstadt though. For Filderstadt, it's not that strong of a field this year. Defending champ, hello.

Oh well. I guess we just want to hand that #1 spot away.

Ty-Ty
Sep 15th, 2005, 01:58 AM
Really? She's not playing Filderstadt?

That's a funny move.

jacs
Sep 15th, 2005, 03:13 AM
I am so annoyed. This is the closest that Lindsay is playing to my country and yet, I would not be able to see her.

ARGH!

lindsayno1

i dont get why shes not playing filderstadt! She OWNS that tourney!

Elldee
Sep 15th, 2005, 09:13 AM
Filderstadt is a great tournement for her and she has played it consistently throughout her year. Perhaps Stuttgart [sp?] comes into her whole thing about not wanting to be alone in cities... I don't think she likes the European weather. I loved her Filderstadt though :(

This title makes me oddly happy. Don't know why. Maybe because it's a TITLE. And, as we all know, TITLE = DOMINATION.

How cool we looked on this sunny day in Bali, with our neck of flowers showing proud, and our amazing trophy for #49.

http://www.wtatour.com/global/photogallery/bali/f_05.jpg

Oh yeah, you know it. #1. I guess she likes playing in the fall, now.

Andrew, are you sure that winning in Bali makes her #1 again? I mean, i thought that Bali wouldn't hold enough points to render her back at number 1 - I though it depended on differing factors in Bejiing.

I guess, as alway, I could be wrong or confused....even both!
