Andrew, I did the math in my head and if she wins Philly I think she can hang on if she makes like the semis at least of the YEC.........is this right? You seem to be the rankings expert!

Andrew..
Oct 28th, 2005, 01:27 AM
Something like that. At the YEC, alot of it depends on quality points, because there is so much to gain there. I think she may need a final to absolutely clinch though.

Fabulous picture :worship:

Hope she wins YEC - it will help to make up for missing out in Oz and Wimby.

Title Number 7 here - 7 is my lucky number so

LETS GO LINDSAY ;) :angel: :wavey:

Lindsay's group currently will consist of herself, Sharapova, Pierce and possibly Schnyder. I think that's a pretty good line up and will be far more interesting than last year, even if it's a tough ask.

Hey how many more tournaments is she going to play, well scheduled to play, before the YEC? Cos she seems to have played alot recently, like week after week, hope she doesn't over-exert herself! Anyhoo good luck for title no.7!

Not really more than other year. Usually lindsay plays Linz, but not this year. Instead Lindsay has been splitting play up well; Filderstad, weekoff, Zurich, week off, Philly.....then running nicely into YEC :D

The YEC draw is random. It could just as easily be Mauresmo, Henin-Hardenne, and whoever ends up being #8 now that Venus is out.

Andrew..
Oct 28th, 2005, 01:52 PM
Venus has pulled out of Philiadelphia.

Andrew..
Oct 28th, 2005, 01:55 PM
Updated seeds:

1. Davenport
2. Sharapova
3. Mauresmo
4. Dementieva
5. Schnyder
6. Petrova
7. Vaidisova
8. Jankovic

It's turned into a nice little field.

I'm pretty sure last year the groups were Lindsay [#1], Anastasia [#3], Elena [#5] and Serena [#7] in red, then Amelie [#2], Svetlana [#4], Maria [#6] and Vera [#8] - Svetlana and Maria's seeds may have been the other way round.

Nice field, Lindsay shouldn't lose to anyone there.

You are correct, last years seeds were:

Red Group

1. Davenport
3. Myskina
5. Dementieva
7. Williams, S.

But, the seedings were random. It jsut happened to be that they were all odd. In 2003, the seedings were Red Group 1, 4, 6, 7.

Andrew..
Oct 28th, 2005, 07:35 PM
Davenport (1) vs bye
Sucha vs Q
Shvedova (WC) vs Q
Petrova (6) vs Q

Dementieva (4) vs bye
Zvonareva vs Díaz Oliva
Craybas vs Peschke
Schnyder (5) vs Karatantcheva

Overall, not a bad draw. Nadia can cause trouble when she's on, but she hasn't been recently. Ditto Schnyder, but she's in good form right now.

Pretty good field, compared to Linz. Geez, most of the top 10 are either 1) Playing like retards. 2) Injured. 3) Injured playing like retards.

so maria's in the other half of the draw??

Lindsayfan32
Oct 29th, 2005, 09:55 AM
Yep keep apart until the final if Maria gets that far and then let Lindsay prove Indian wells was no fluke expect Lindsay will be nice and give her a game in each set this time.

Elldee
Oct 29th, 2005, 10:41 AM

Hardly surprising as the number two seed.

I think that this is a pretty tough draw with Petrova, Dementieva, Sharapova, but at least she gets qualifier or Sucha and doesn't have to hit the ground running like in Zurich. The only reason people think Maria's half is tough is because Lindsay's in great form and well, Maria isn't.

Good luck Lindsay, have a fantastic finish to the season:)

Frederic
Oct 29th, 2005, 12:52 PM
I'd really like Lindsay to get 9 titles this year, it is possible, and at the same time finishing n°1 for the second time in a row would be fantastic as well!!! Go Lindsay!!!!

LindsayRulez
Oct 29th, 2005, 01:51 PM
If this court is the same as it was before the tournament took a hiatus, then it's much faster than courts like Zurich or Linz, which definitely suits Lindsay. She'll have her way with the field! ;)

Elldee
Oct 29th, 2005, 02:24 PM
Lindsay can't get nine titles; she's got two more tournements to play and 'only' six titles currently.

Andrew..
Oct 29th, 2005, 02:33 PM
I will be arriving in Philadelphia on Friday afternoon. Hopefully Lindsay's QF will be the night match. If not, I'll probably miss it. :(

Infact where has she been for so long? Is she still injured?

Why are you worried about Maria. Lindsay can't play her until the final and by then she will have well and trurly hit top gear. There is no one that should worry Lindsay in this draw. If the court surface is fast even better.

Elldee
Oct 30th, 2005, 10:14 AM
Schnyder too was in the bottom half. Lindsay's route is much the same.

Im not worried about masha beating Lindsay. It was just a general question as to where has Maria been and whats wrong with her in a general context. Not in the context of whether or not she may be fit enough to beat Lindsay!

Stay cool dude!

sweet pic.this girl is just oozing class,no matter what she does... :kiss: but i am not so sure about the easiness for her in L.A...IMO,some surprises could expire from the other girls.but it will be a great spectacle,thats for sure!!

I took one look at this thought Lindsay looks so thrilled to be there and it looked darn cold. I have been Ice skating once and never again it was the coldest wetest place I had ever been and it must suck more if you're team getting beaten aswell.

Oct 31st, 2005, 08:35 PM
she'll win Phily with ease :p becouse the court surface isn't slow enough to make her trouble :devil:
maybe Nadia or Elena are kind of dangerous on hard or clay ;) but on any other court Lindsay is simply far better than the rest of the players in Advanta Champ's :lol: even Maria :lick: especially in this form as she showed previously in Moscow :tape:
in the YEC Lindsay's group should be like this: :bounce: :worship: :devil:
(1).Lindsay Davenport
(4).Amelie Mauresmo
(6).Patty Schnyder
(7).Nadia Petrova
it would be fantastic :lol:

Nadia is underrated. She's crazy and streaky as hell, but on her best days she's a top five player.

I find her game weird though. It's as if she's trying to be a scrambler when her body type should be better suited at being power player. And she looks physically awkward somehow...

LethalLindsay
Nov 1st, 2005, 04:21 AM
You are so right Andrew. I have really grown to appreciate Nadia as a player and i LOVE the fight and spunk she shows! Particularly against Sharapova in the quarters at the US Open!
No love lost there!

I don't understand what you mean... Do you mean she's trying to play like Shnyder or Martinez's game?

Withdrawn with "flu".

Yeah, okay.

I could post my full anger right now for blowing money on tickets, airfare, and hotel rooms, but I'll just refrain until a later date.

Elldee
Nov 1st, 2005, 10:39 PM
Well, let's hope she doesn't actually have flu. I'm pretty annoyed in terms of the world number one spot, not to mention the fact that she'll now come second in the race by a few points and that Philadelphia is now the most boring tournement of the year. I didn't expect this, Philli's in America afterall!

Well, she pulled the same thing in New Haven last year.

The "flu" is a dumb excuse. Lindsay has showed up at tournaments when she's had the flu, i.e. Sydney. She pulled out before her QF, but she made the effort. She also had the flu in Moscow. She just didn't want to play this week. That's fine, but don't wait until two days after the tournament has started to pull out.

I'm thinking Philadelphia was her hard designation. That's the only reason for her to pretend to play in it. She didn't even sign up for it last year. And I also have to think the WTA knew about this a while ago. That's probably how Amelie found herself in the draw. Don't forget, this isn't exactly the most honest tournament you'll find. In 2003, they kept Venus in the darw through Monday, when it was abundantly clear she was out for the season.

Yes, yes of course all of this is true. Assuming she qualifies, Venus may not even show up at WTA Champs if she's got something better to do.

boy have i missed a lot in a whole week. My intanet has been dead since monday due to change over of modem from NTL set top box (because we now have SKY) to NTL cable modem. Trying to install it and register has been a pain in my ASS (for the second time tonight....never use NTL for anything!)....the disk crashed my PC for good....it was dead and now the phoenix has risen....well, been formatted anyway. I haven't even installed my scanner and printer back in yet - perhpas a job for tomorrow along with anything else.

Anyway, first I heard about lindsay's withdrawal was on BBC teletext service and that wasn't until about wednesday, so I text Becky to ask her and she gave me the low-down. I'm sure the "flu" will be gone by time YEC arrives.

I know Lindsay supports Anaheim Mighty Ducks, but that player isn't of the Ducks.....is that red Jersey belonging to a player for Detroit Red Wings? That's the only team I know with a red Jersey.....probably wrong as they are possibly in different conferences.....oh, I know - phoenix coyotes....just re-read my message and the fact i typed Phoenix earlier reminded me of them.

:haha: I'm right, I think....Coyotes played Anaheim twice in the last week or so, so I don't know why Lindsay is so sad in the picture when The Ducks won both times (I think)......so, I'm pretty sure that that match is Ducks vs Coyotes. :yeah:

:lol: just noticed that the girl behind Lindsay has an Anaheim jacket over her face....not sure why i didn't spot that! One of their matches went into overtime, so if Lindsay is watching the tense match with overtime, well, she's bound to look like that.....just think how our faces must look when Lindsay ends up taking an important match into a tiebreak or something.....then you might be understanding what she's thinking ;)
