I was just about to make a thread.

It was nice, anybody is better than Annabel fucking Croft.

Some good points about Lindsay: She has been working really hard on her serve since Australia.... which is good. She was serving at 90% first serves in today. :eek:

She said, "Chucky is making this look like 'child's play' again Myskina! It's obvious she came back because this mediocre player won Roland Garros 2004."

I've always wondered if Lindsay would be a commentator for ESPN when retired. She always says she won't be involved with tennis after she is gone, plus I don't see her travelling much when she's finished playing. But maybe she can commentate for Cally tournaments? :D

You know, the usual "gosh, she is such a great, great player" stuff Lindsay does.

"I just think Martina's an amazing, amazing player, you know, coming back after 3 years and beating almost everyone is just phenomenal".

"Yeah, I think Myskina is a great, great player, you know, she had a bit of a disappointing year last year after her amazing 2004, but she's still very tough to play".

It kind of annoys me that she won't be involved in tennis whatsoever after she retires.
Does she even like what she does ? She seems to hate the interviews, the travel, (many) players, etc.

Or is it like, "i guess i have to play tennis since i'm so good at it".

Damn, I was checking out my tv guide wondering why I missed tennis.
I guess I'll have to wait until the next slam. :sad:

It definitely was Lindsay sitting in the booth when they showed it. Also the ES2 commentator several times said; "Lindsay, blah blah bla." and finally; "thank you Lindsay for joining us....."

Yes. Lindsay hates tennis and only plays because she's good at it.

Lindsay has said after she retires she wants to step back from tennis for a couple of years she does want to be involved with tennis after she retires just not straight away it might have something to do with wanting to have a family too. Lindsay is a thinking player I always thought being a commitator could be a post tennis career move. Yes she still does love do it or why would she hire a new coach and be bothered with all the training involved to stay near the top she has said that herself too.

Does it matter. Lindsay would be an improvement over all of them except maybe Cliff.
