Lindsay's scheduled to play a singles match against Nicole Vaidisova on the opening day and then doubles with Nicole Vaidisova against Dementieva and Jie Zheng.

Sydeny = Chance of keeping #1.

Hong Kong does not. AKA: Dump this and start of Down Under.

Andrew..

Seriously.

It's probably because they're forking over a huge appearance fee. Lindsay's been whoring that up lately.

If you want Lindsay to win the oz open it a good idea she's not playing the week before. With the top no shows in Sydney I'm surpised Lindsay hasn't been told to play in Sydney. I want her to win the oz open and if this is the path for her doing it so be it. I just wished she was playing the hopman cup instead Hong Kong though.

Hopman is pretty rubbish because not all the world class players will be there anyways. The HK exhibition has more competition, and plus I will be there - so I hope Lindsay DOES NOT pull out :D

I partly agree with it, but I think that Hong Kong is more of warm-up cos I don't think she's going to get out her way to win the exhibition matches , whereas Sydney is actually a tournament and as any tournament it has a potential risk of injury which is especialy undesirable before OZ open

Tennis is tennis no matter what conditions it's played under. Proof: Last year, Lindasy injured her knee in an exhibition match against Sharapova. Just because the atmosphere is a little lighter doesn't mean it isn't tennis. Injuries happen everywhere.

This, btw, shouldn't even be called an exhibition. Every player here plays to win it. And the field is probably better than any Tier I had last year. If that doesn't say it ...

And even if Lindsay lost every match, she'd have to play three matches. And that's assuming she lost every match. And when and if she does win, she gets to play players that have given her shit loads of problems - Venus, Kim, Serena.

I think all signs point to Sydeny, eh.

Andrew..
Dec 9th, 2005, 12:52 PM
That's pretty much how I feel about it. She's playing a load of top players for no points, no rewards, nothing. And it's alot of work.

Andrew see the above statement I take it all back. Now I know how the Hong Kong tournment works. I agree with you on Lindsay playing in Sydney if she doesn't she is going to be under done three matches in singles and doubles if Lindsay and Nicole don't win their first doubles match is nowhere near enough. I see the logic in not playing the week before but in this case she should.

Andrew I seem to be agreeing with you alot lately is scaring me.

If she needs time off, don't play pointless exhibitions.

Dec 11th, 2005, 05:54 PM
Random:

I had a dream last night about Lindsay and Wimbledon... it was quite weird. She was due to face Serena in the semi finals, and Momo Venus... the sistahz both pulled out because of injuries. I missed the final and someone told me the next day that Lindsay lost 6-4 in the third to DEMENTIEVA. :scared::retard:

Anyway, on exhibitions: Whatever. I just want the AO. :D

Andrew..

The Australian Open plays too slow... unless Lindsay runs her ass off! In 2000 it was the fastest it's ever been... last year the second fastest.

mike/topgun
Dec 11th, 2005, 09:19 PM
The Australian Open plays too slow... unless Lindsay runs her ass off! In 2000 it was the fastest it's ever been... last year the second fastest.
Of course it's way too slow...but, if she dreams of a GS crown, simply must get fit enough, to play 2 weeks (no doubles) every other day, with a high commitment to every single point and set...not as she did often this year...
And that's true rebaundace was extremely fast in 2000, after then every year slower, till 2005 when it was a bit faster, so Hewitt finally made it through to the final, and Alicia stayed strong beating Venus and threatening Lindsay :eek: :bounce:
I suppose, that our greatest chances though, are still in Wimbledon, where the experience and wiseness - supported by a brilliant technique skills - make it far more approachable ;)The accuracy of the first-class quality serve&groundies give her another credit there (and everywhere beyond RG actually) :bounce:
However imho, it doesn't really matter when/where we'll celebrate the Victory...just if (it happen anyway I hope) :p
p.s.
nice try Andrew ,though not along those lines... :lol: ;) :lol: <joke...>

Andrew..
Dec 11th, 2005, 10:16 PM
It's not impossible to win on. If she serves well and keeps the UE's low, then she's right there. Last year, her serving was horrible, and after rewatching the SF a few days ago, I'm not sure how she made the final.

Nice try what?

Elldee
Dec 11th, 2005, 10:20 PM
The only time I've seen Lindsay show intensity of every point of a match was against Clijster's in the fourth round of Wimbledon.

I am not ruling out the Australian Open and hope Lindsay stays positive; her speed really does change from match to match, she was SO slow against Dementieva in New York.

lindsayno1
Dec 11th, 2005, 10:50 PM
that match was HORRENDOUS. theres no other word for it.

Andrew..
Dec 11th, 2005, 11:07 PM
Her match against Dementieva was one of the worst matches I've ever seen her play. It's scary how she almost won that.

Elldee
Dec 12th, 2005, 12:43 AM
Yeah, it hurt. I criticised Mauresmo and particularly Capriati for losing 7-6 in the third to Dementieva from commanding positions at the US Open and then Lindsay throws in a horrible match; that came for bad decision making, they were trying to save her back and so didn't practice enough and she just wasn't on form.

Andrew..
Dec 12th, 2005, 01:06 AM
She won New Haven the week before, easily beating a top four player in the final. I don't buy the "out of form" arguement. Lindsay frequently blows against Dementeiva, and she just played horribly that day.

Thats becouse LenaD likes to play Lindsay and sometimes Linds doesn't like to play Lena that much...and you must admit, that in the 1st, Demented played(and served) great...or far better than Lindsay did (what Dav made then, was much alike the 1st set in OZ Open Vs Dechy-so, so slow)
the 3rd was a real battle, and the stronger one (that day) just captured it...
(as for not a long time), but Lena had great luck in the tiebreaker<as the tb was a string of haps and mishaps for us>
In New Haven the draw was quite an easy one (for the WTA n#2 -Peschke, Hantuchova...) and Mauresmo never had beaten Linds in the US<on an outdoor HC>, so Lindsay has the advantage right a way on the start (and also with the MoMo style - FH topspin etc.) it's much easier for Linds to come up with her shots all the time - dictating the points in the crucial moments of the match :lick:
------------------
However, if you had seen the 4th rd Vs Dechy in NY<surely>, then you must have been as dissapointed, as I was watching this creepy quarterfinal match-up (live - on tv - about 3 o'clock in the morning) :fiery: :eek: ;) :lol:

!<blocparty>!
Dec 12th, 2005, 01:01 PM
Lindsays fourth round Wimbledon win was amazing. Her returns were just ON FIRE for most of the match. Her depth, movement, own serve and forehand were amazing for the first and third sets. (some of those FH cc's :hearts: ) Such a difference from the final.... where she played WELL, but not like that. Weird.

!<blocparty>!
Dec 12th, 2005, 01:02 PM
So basically, she needs that play against a top player in the final rounds. It's come against a top player.... just not passed the quarters, yet. :unsure:

Dec 12th, 2005, 01:56 PM

Thats true - last couple of GSs' QFs, where she did stand up against like JHH(OZ '04), Serena (US '01), Venus ( Wimby '03), Graf (RG '99) or even Pierce and Lena D this year - just make me being more realistic bout her chances for a slam in 2006...and the whole serie of SF loses to the Russians...that sucks... :fiery:
But her abilities are far higher, than a QF loss to Lena D in NY :worship: and lets stick to this conclusion ;) :p :wavey:

Dec 13th, 2005, 09:42 AM
She needs to play here because I am dying to see Lindsay! I was planning on going during the US open but plans got messed up.

Kimmi
Dec 13th, 2005, 05:35 PM
Oooh, that quater final was something else! :sad:

She just looked generally pissed off IMO, and if you watch the match, she is yelling all sorts of comments and general naughties (:tape: my innocent ears :lol: ) , one of which looked like (but probably wasn't because I suck at this lip-reading stuff) ".....not coming back" - fill in the blank at the start if you dare. Even against Mary in the YECs, she looked pissed off. It's like she just gets bored and then stops :awww:

mike/topgun
Dec 13th, 2005, 08:19 PM
And it is kinda strange..coz when it didn't go her way in Me!bourne against f.e. Alicia or Dechy<the most boring player in top 15> she then actually gritted her teeth and worked it out...she wasn't pissed off of course - she was eager by then...
But in NY Linds was far from her best form & against a very motivated fighter LenaD<who played remarkably well that day, unfortunately>...it required a great effort from Dav, to level the match and fight it through in 3rd, to the eventual tiebreaker, which she lost in very adverse circumstances...
In YEC (as well as in NY) I suppose, we were just witnesses of how Linds can be frustrated, after a match that she didn't pull through <VS Maria>, she was obviously tired and not moving well enough, to be able to compete with Mary on the highest level<but she did> and win that one in those close endings...And the serve was not working for her in the decisive moments (in tiebreaks)...those floppy FH errors are so uncharacteristic for Linds :p
Motivation, determination should be greater than ever...technique skills and wiseness of her game combined with a good phisicall form should bring relevant results...
Think we all are convinced that the start of 2006 will be as good (or hopefully better :bounce: ) as in 2005 ;)
:wavey:
P.S.I can't wait to see Lindsay again on court :drool: :lick: <in tv :rolleyes: >

Elena is talented but Linds lets her get into her head which is why Linds loses focus and matches to Elena. It happens to the bets of players.

Ty-Ty
Dec 30th, 2005, 11:07 PM
Blah to the ah. It's a nice event and everything, and it's probably the best warmup for the Aussie Open, but other than the match play, we get nothing! Kim will take over Number 1 and fjdsalkdfnsaklfjd.

But I guuuuess it'll be somewhat worth it, though. :unsure:

Andrew..
Dec 30th, 2005, 11:21 PM
I like how she's just handing the #1 ranking to KIM!. It's great when the world's top player openly doesn't give a fuck about being #1. Another A+ to the WTA!

It's not the best warmup for the Australian Open. Considering this is an exhibition, I doubt she cares how she does. She'll probably tank to NIKI in the 1r. NIKI is so pretty. She should always win!

and Nicole is quite pretty but she deserves to win every match which she doesn't lose to Lindsay...you've just forgotten to add :lol:

Andrew..
Dec 30th, 2005, 11:31 PM
I was being sarcastic. :p

In all seriousness, I don't think Lindsay would go out there with the intention of losing the match. But I don't see her fighting much if she gets down a set or something.

GrandSlam05
Dec 30th, 2005, 11:57 PM
I agree Andrew I don't see Lindsay fighting the good fight just for an exhibition when she has more money than God, but I just don't seem to care about the #1 rank anymore. I mean we're lucky to still have it. The Shark had several chances to take it this year and we're damn lucky the Golden Retriever tanked at the YEC and handed us the YE #1.

Ty-Ty
Dec 31st, 2005, 02:26 AM
In terms of who's she's playing, I think it's the best warmup. Though of course I wouldn't know the draw for Sydney, I doubt she'd get the kind of match play there against Venus, Kim, Elena etc. that she would in Hong Kong. That's what I meant.

And this exhibition is different. Every player plays to win it. I would thinkLindsay is going to put the same amount of effort she would into any other tournament. Weither or not the fact that this is only an exhibtion will sneak into her head when she's down a set or something, I don't know.

Andrew..
Dec 31st, 2005, 02:28 AM
I think Lindsay would probably lose to most of the players at HK so early in the season - at an exhibition. Thus, it's not a good warmup if Queen Vee beats us up in the second match, or we tanks losts to NIKI.

Ty-Ty
Dec 31st, 2005, 02:41 AM
Meh. You can't be sure about that. I doubt Lindsay would've taken the time to show up and get romped by Queen Vee or tank to a Nikki. I personally think Sydeny would've been the best choice, still.

I'm eagerly waiting to see some DiLucia magic though.

mike/topgun

would you personally fly those 10 th miles just to show up on an exo?
maybe Linds often seemes like she doesn't care but it could be a fals impression this time coz it's her only warm up event before The Oz ;) then there's practice...
And in my mind HK's not that bad at all with Kim/Vee/Ree/LenaD/Nikki and Sania on board plus a thing - Linds will play those 3-4 matches anyway...
Still it's a shame that she won't compete in Sydney for the n#1 :( nevertheless I'd prefere to see her with a GS trophy than with a n#1 in the ranks - but it could be harder to get a slam with a lower rank(THE DRAW)

Elldee

I'm beginning to think she's pulled out. As of yesterday, she was still in Socal. If she leaves tonight for HK, she still won't get there until Monday - two days before she's scheduled to play. Either she's not planning on going, or she's going to be dealing with some serious jetlag.

mike/topgun
Dec 31st, 2005, 04:10 PM
The jetlag thing is obvious now...
don't think it's much money for Linds:p, and maybe she's going to pull out from HK while still considering a Sydney late-entry/WC...who knows with her
which particular one you mean by:
"the last time Lindsay's pride was at stake against a certain young player who I detest"?
I suppose it's not bout pride - lets say Agassi lost to some newcomers like Nadal ;) - she's proud of herself(career/private life) anyway but if she's enjoying the game she's winning whatever:D imho Lindsay is not like Reena she's more like Vee...

All top players get six figures for that tournament.

Did you just compare her to Venus.

mike/topgun
Jan 1st, 2006, 01:05 PM
I did not compare Linds to Veenus - just have pointed out "she's more like Vee while definitely not like Serena" - there's some slight similarity to Vee in the "pride factor" ;)

Andrew..
Jan 1st, 2006, 02:10 PM
I disagree... Serena and Lindsay are actually friends who talk to eachother, while Venus kind of sits out. Serena is kind of cool too, and so is Lindsay.

True.And your right of course - Linds is not like Venus off court.
But (again) I've meant not the character/personality but their "pride factor" on court: fighting spirit/then not showing that many emotons (unless she finally wins a Slam :lol: )...and that's what seems to me kinda makes Lindsay and Venus somewhat alike. Might be wrong but my intention is not to compare or evaluate them as players :angel: Those are some of my own impressions f.e. from 2005 Wimby final<OMG still can't believe how lucky Vee was on some points and with this back injury :tape: > and the other matches between Linds and WS(and there were some).

Lindsay always shows alot of, how should I say this, "respect" for QV. I get annoyed be her comments sometimes, like when she says how amazing QV is, etc. It was particularly annoying during the 2002-2003 era. So, I call her Queen Vee, like Lindsay would want me to do.

From Yahoo! Sports:

Davenport, who turns 30 in June, said after the match she plans to play fewer tournaments this year. The Hong Kong exhibition is her only warmup event ahead of the Australian Open, which starts Jan. 16.

"For me, at this age, I just felt that I'm going to play where I choose to play," she said.

God, yes. She was so hyped in reaching the fourth round of the open and people expected her to challenge Sharapova when she'd struggled to beat everyone she'd played [she should have lost to Mashona Washington] and then she did worse against Sharapova than the likes of Schruff.

Who do you honestly think is going to win? my heart says Lindsay and my head says Lindsay. Venus is bound to be a little rusty but her stats are not great-2 aces,6 doubles, 9 winners,28 unforced errors. Also it seems that she may be protecting her back against an injury (though I wouldn't be entirely convinced of that) so her movement could be restriced. If Lindsay can serve well, I think she will take it. I'd say tactics will play a part and it will be interesting to see what the new coach might come up with. Cmon Lindsay!!!!!!!!!

More winners than errors and it's a done deal. Some good grind from Lindsay to take games to deuce and break from there as well as avoiding break points [she was only broken once serving for the first set]. So, basically, other than the most important match of 2005, Lindsay hasn't been beaten by Venus since 2003.

Lindsay hasn't been beaten by Kim on any surface other than hard and Lindsay hasn't had success against Kim on outdoor hard since the Aussie Open 2001 and indoor since the YEC's in the same year. This would be a big win especially because it's on hardcourts.

Davenport downs Venus
From correspondents in Hong Kong
January 7, 2006

WORLD No.1 Lindsay Davenport blitzed Venus Williams tonight to set up a Champions Challenge final against Kim Clijsters in a warm up for the Australian Open.

Clijsters, the world No.2, had a tougher battle against world No.8 Elena Dementieva with series of long rallies before she prevailed 6-3 6-3.

Serving for the match, Clijsters was broken for 5-3 before recovering and breaking back against the 24-year-old defending champion.

While she was pleased with her performance against the Russian and defending champion, Clijsters said she would need to improve for Saturday's final of the invitational against Davenport.

"It's always great to play against her because she's number one at the moment... it's perfect to play someone who's playing as well as she has. Yesterday she played incredible so it's going to be a tough match but it's good preparation for me," the US Open Champion said.

"It will be tough and I'll have to play better than I did today. I'll have to serve very well to keep the pressure on her and her serve.

"I'll have to move well because she definitely makes you run around so I'll have to make sure my legs are fresh and ready to do lots of running."

Davenport meanwhile easily defeated Williams 6-3 6-1 to qualify for Saturday's final of the exhibition tournament.

Davenport, who will be hoping to add to her three Grand Slam titles in Melbourne, broke four times in the first set against Williams, who needed treatment to an injured left hip during her earlier match.

The American, who also beat rising Czech star Nicole Vaidisova in straight sets here, was delighted to reach the final in her only tournament before the year's first Grand Slam.
"I was hitting the ball really cleanly and was hitting some good corners. Some days a lot of balls go in and today was one of them," she said.

"I played really well. And I was going for a lot of things. There was a little inconsistency serving but other than that, I played pretty much how I wanted to play."

The 29-year-old Davenport said the win was a confidence boost ahead of the Australian Open.

"Knowing that I worked hard and knowing that I'm playing well certainly makes me fell very prepared going into Melbourne," she said.

Davenport made few unforced errors in the second set, racing to a 3-0 lead. Williams gifted Davenport another break with a double fault as the five-time Grand Slam winner continued to look unconvincing after a three-month break.

Williams had not played since pulling out of the China Open in September with a knee injury. In her opening match here, she beat India's Sania Mirza in straight sets despite the mystery hip ailment, which she said continued to trouble her during her match against Davenport.

"I have not been diagnosed. No one seems to know what's going on. It really affected me today," Williams said.

"I'm confident I will get better but I just need a high-calibre physiotherapist to diagnose me because physically they don't even know what to treat."

Her younger sister Serena pulled out of the tournament citing an inflamed left knee earlier today after being surprisingly beaten by Russia's Elena Dementieva.

Four of the top 10 are taking part in the eight-player invitational ahead of the Australian Open on January 16.

Some good stats from Lindsay:) so with them she should beat almost anybody;)
It's nice to open the season with 2 straightset victories over top class opponents.
The final is going to be an exciting one to watch while both are playing well...imho Linds is playing better than Kim so she's prepared for the Oz and a win over one of the greatest rivals will do for her confidence for sure.
It was looking far better in the Vee match than in Nicoles' so the final against Kim may be the best from Dav in HK. No matter what the finals' result will be it's a quite well rounded beginning of the year for Lidsay and Dave.

I don't think any of the tactics that Lindsay possibly employed from the new coach was different. I've watched her practice with him and they were hitting a lot of baselines rallies, as far as I could tell. It was the usual forehand, backhand, and then serve routine. I think I need to watch her more and carefully observe. But Lindsay was laughing a lot during her practice :)

dav abu
Jan 7th, 2006, 09:11 AM
Kim won 6-3,7-5.Feck it!! Don't know anything about the stats of the match but Lindsay served at 5-3 for the second set and its a concern that once again she can't serve a set out. Kim does seem to have Lindsay on the hardcourts, some were saying on the message board that she moved Lindsay around and that was the key. Anyways its only an exhibition, onwards and upwards to the OZ Open :)

Elldee
Jan 7th, 2006, 09:22 AM
THIS is why Lindsay should have won the slams when Kim was out. I realise this was an exhibition or whatever [and to be honest, this loss doesn't hurt at all] but Lindsay seems to have an inability to beat Kim on hard.

Jan 7th, 2006, 09:50 AM
Grand slam here is a fact when Linday get into her zone no one beats her. It was only her third match of the year and Kim can't play Lindsay in Melbourne until the final and this was only an execo. I believe Lindsay can come to Melbourne and train for week and be well rested and win the oz open this year.

Elldee
Jan 7th, 2006, 10:57 AM
Lindsay was up 3-1 in the first set and 5-3 second set... I guess serves are broken a reasonable amount in exos though but losing five games in a row at the end of the first and four at the end of the second is pretty bad. Roll on the AO!

How convenient.

Yesterday when she beats Venus, everyone is treating this like a "real tournament". Now, it's just an exhibition. I'm not buying it.

This is a typical match against KIM!. Kim sucks, but still wins. And, of course, we blow leads.

And I think this loss does hurt. She once again loses to arguably her biggest rival, and shows she's not the best player in the best form going into Melbourne. This wa more than an exhibition. Plus, this match will be in the back of Lindsay's mind the next time she plays Kim, and will be a big confidence booster to Kim.

dav abu
Jan 7th, 2006, 12:25 PM
I get what you're saying Andrew. It does hold more importance than any old exhibition match because its another win for Kim over Lindsay on hard courts. It can be said now that she owns Lindsay on this surface. Another disappointing aspect is that Lindsay lost 5 straight games in the first and blew her chance to take it to a third-wtf!?! there is no excuse for that exhibition or not. Saying all that I would imagine when it comes to a slam match Lindsay will be more focussed and concentrated and won't throw away big leads-well we can hope not!

Andrew..
Jan 7th, 2006, 12:28 PM
Lindsay isn't exactly Ms. Focused in slam matches, recently.

GrandSlam05
Jan 7th, 2006, 03:33 PM
I don't know what Lindsay will take from this, but I think for Kim this is just an exhibition. She tends to play better when there's less pressure and I still think she'll tighten up a little in big slam matches (hitting those df's and crazy forehands). Hopefully Golden Retriever will get Henin in her half of the draw and choke big time.
I haven't seen the match yet but from what I read Lindsay was streaky, playing great sometimes but then making 4 errors in a row and df'ing on a break point.
The blown leads sting the most. I just wish Lindsay would get over Kim. It's like she doesn't have that 'killer instinct' against Kim because "Kim's so nice." Bleh

RayRob
Jan 7th, 2006, 03:44 PM
Lindsay isn't exactly Ms. Focused in slam matches, recently.

Or should be say "Mrs." Focused!? :p

I agree. It's been (sadly) a while since Lindsay has remained focused for the big matches. During the Early rounds of RG and up to the QF of Wimby, Lindsay showed she can focus but for some reason the last couple of years, Lindsay hasn't been able to fully concentrate on the match at hand in semi's or finals.

This has lead to various loses in matches from a winning position! In any profession, lack of focus is not acceptable, so I'm sure Lindsay herself knows it's not acceptable. It's not for me to say it's not acceptable as it's not me who's going out and showing myself up. I'm sure Lindsay has come to that realisation which is why she's gone for a change of coach (I suspect) and gone with DeLucia (or whatever his name is ;) ) because he is apparently known for wanting hard work from his players.

It was a good run at an exo event with a seemingly tough draw, she had her chance to make right the mental advantage Kim has over Lindsay but didn't take advantage of it. I remember us all saying this various times when Lindsay played Venus - even Andrew you still say it now ;) - that Lindsay has a mental block whenever she faces Venus, but Lindsay seems to have turned things around and it's more an even keel. When they play, anyone could win - pretty much 50/50....Lindsay wins one, Venus wins one etc, etc.

I think the same can be said for Lindsay vs Kim. At the moment, (at least on Hard Courts) Kim has the 70% edge over Lindsay but I think eventually it will turn just as it did against Venus. There's something about experience that seems to get Lindsay the advantage in the long run...she's like a cat that will always land on her feet eventually. Just imagine what she would be like if she added her focus with this experience!? Well, we've seen it in the early rounds of Grand Slams - she's unbeatable.....but I know, you know and Lindsay knows, getting to the Quarters DOESN'T win the biggies!

That's just my opinion.

I don't think that Lindsay will win the AO (though I hope she proves me wrong because it would be great!) but I think Lindsay's best and stronger chance is at Wimbledon where her serve scores cheap points - when it's on!

Lindsay has been world number one for 95 weeks, Kim can take it in Sydney with a win and will definately take it at the Open... she might not make 100 if she plays a reduced schedule :(

:eek: oh no :sad:
