Will make a better post in a while.

The Tower of Power Lindsay Clan is six years old by Indianwells. As tradition dictates, we will continue to party as long as Lindsay is in the tournament.

And as with all parties, try to lessen the negative vibe y'all even if it is just for this tournament. (And even if we appear freakishly idealistic/mildly delusional for doing so.)



Someone bring out the karaoke machine! :bounce:

A party isn't a party without a good drinking session. Along with a good ol' Karaoke sing song we should raise a toast to Lindsay and sink a few pints in her honour :rocker:

Lindsay's chances just got even better now that Pierce has withdrew. :sad:


I'm hoping she will beat Sharapova 0 & 0 again!!

Since jacs went and USURPED the other thread...

She needs another big tournament win to motivate her. Stanford 2004 was a perfect example. She realized she could beat anybody. Now, it's like we're back at Wimbledon 2004, on that sad Thursday which became known as the Darkest Day in the History of Women's Tennis.

She SHOULD be able to handle Martina. Apart from her win over Maria, Tina hasn't been too impressive against the top players. But, what top players has Lindsay beaten this year? Equally unimpressive. If she gets beyond that, I like her chances against Myskina in the QF, alot. Her semifinal, sigh... She has everthing to beat Maria, EVERYTHING. There is no reason for her to lose to Maria. But, four times, she has screwed up. At Wimbledon, tanks. At Tokyo, that was more injury than anything else. The YEC...I'm still trying to figure out WTF that was. It was like a semi-tank yawns performance. Then, Dubai. She could not serve. She was missing second serves by FEET. Plus, her attitude wasn't great. More laughing at Maria's winners. Reminds me of another match...

Anyway, I have a really bad feeling about that match. She just can't get the job done against Maria, and unfortunately I see that trend continuing.

Andrew here's a surpise I disargree with you. Sure Lindsay could've got a better draw. But indian wells brings out the best in Lindsay and she plays her best there no matter what her pre tournment form is like. So just for one tournement could you please stop being so negitive and just enjoy Lindsay playing in tourment for once after all its TOP 6th birthday and that's worth celebrating and hopefully we get a Lindsay indian wells victory aswell and she needs all her fans to get behind her for that to happen.

Also we don't know how much longer Lindsay will playing beyond this year so enjoy it while it lasts as she going to be a long time retired.

IW brings the best out of Lindsay - I still believe she's able to beat anybody.
However, I'm not so sure, she has a big chance for the final along with Martina and Masha in the draw and possibly a final clash against JHH doesn't look too encouraging.
Stay positive and cheer for Lindz coz she probably needs the support from her fans.

I'm not being negative. I'm reviewing the situation. She's lost to Maria four out of five times they've played. Those aren't great odds going forward.

Can you try to stop using run-ons. Thanks.

It was decided in our first year that instead of one particular date, the whole Indianwells tournament, or if by some weird instance that it would not be held or if Lindsay doesn't play in Indianwells, the next tournament where she does play would mark the TOP anniversary.

Thanks for that Jacs so its one long party for the whole Indian Well tournment sounds good to me. Now lets hope it ends with Lindsay holding trophy.

Another question that's all fine and good but what happens once Lindsay retires? Does that mean the clan stops altogether? I hope not this is a great place to come and chat about Lindsay.

Mar 10th, 2006, 09:36 PM
Has someone seen it. It surely was an astonishing performance from Davy.
Strange. It's unbelievable, how well Lindsay can play on a given day. But the serve must work more consistently in order to prevent 4th rd exit to Hingis. Ashley's a nice player, but she's had a 'bad day'. Frankly, I'm a little concerned, coz it's a second straight tournament where Davenport kicks off with a double bagle:p. We all know she can beat anybody, but I'm afraid it seems, that she deals with a kind of unstable disposition, I mean f.e. one day everything works, but the 1st serve isn't quite there as often as it should, next match she serves better but same time struggles with her groundstrokes or whatever. When one beats an oppoent like 6-0, 6-0 one gains adequate coonfidence, so I hope she will destroy Martina. Then a possible QF against Anastasia or maybe Marta Domachowska who has beaten Meghann Shaughnessy in three;). Well, work on serve and get your revenge on Masha, just like you did last year Lindzi:). Let it be a good start of a winning path.

Not to be a downer, but Lindsay's comments kind of concern me.

She went on about how she doesn't want to play a full schedule. Fine. Then she said that she only wanted to play "between 10 and 12 tournaments". K. We're not Venus or Serena. I understand she want's to play less, but 10 tournaments is ridiculous. And, her ranking won't be above five with that kind of schedule. This is frustrating.

Well.. honestly, I'd rather have her PLAYING than being retired.. I know your response will be "give 100% or nothing", but really.. let's take what we can get, okay? Big freaking deal if she wants to play 10 tournaments a year, it beats nothing.

AO, Dubai, IW, Miami, AI, FO, Wimbledon, Stanford, LA, San Diego, US Open.. that's 11. Maybe she'll skip the clay season all together and play Fildy and the YEC's. Maybe not. Who knows. Let her do what makes her happy.

mike/topgun
Mar 11th, 2006, 10:47 AM
It's ridiculous...whateva...I want to see Lindsay enjoying, winning and playing her best tennis and I really don't mind if she plays 10 touneys or more.
And when she'll skip clay court season, which is very likely to happen, she'll play in automn indoors probably. Do agree it doesn't make sense not to play RG when you're going for the GS title, same time we all know what are Lindzis chances for a win in Paris... She doesn't care for the ranking anymore, but it's significant to earn as many points as it's required to be in top 4, if your gunning for GS win. We know her best shot is in Wmbledon, but when she's seeded outside top 4 she'll be drawn to face some of the top players earlier on. It's a gamble. Let her do what she wants - she's grown up. In 2004 I didn't even dream Davenport will play in 2005 and 2006;)so I am grateful she's still there.

Frederic
Mar 11th, 2006, 12:04 PM
It is right about double bagel. 2004: 6/0 6/0 in the 2nd round against Santangelo if I remember well and 3 6/0 in a row. 2005: 6/0 6/0 against Sharapova in the semi and 3 in a row again. 2006: 6/0 6/0 in the second round. I really want Lindsay to keep playing well and keep focusing on what she can do the best...

The Daviator
Mar 11th, 2006, 12:57 PM
I remember a reporter asking Lindsay if this might be her last Wimbledon - in 2003! And here she is hinting that she may play in 2007! These past few seasons have been a bonus, and even with the lack of GS success, she's still provided some great moments and memories...

Anyway, she's winning this event and Wimbledon :worship:

Oh, and hi everyone - I'm new :)

Can we debate Lindsay's latest comments after she finished playing this tournment who knows what she's going to do but one thing is for sure we're going have to put up with her playing less. All I care about right now is Indian wells and nothing else then we can debate and worry about where she's playing next. It see less of Lindsay or retirement will come sooner than anyone wants it.

Emmanya
Mar 12th, 2006, 11:54 AM
I think Lindsay's decision to play less tournaments is to try and help her body hold out a bit longer so she can compete in more slams. I also think its to help Lindsay enjoy her tennis because although she obviously likes what she does I think the more she is forced to do the more it becomes more like a job.

Andrew..
Mar 12th, 2006, 02:17 PM
You can't plan on injuries though... They're going to happen when they're going to happen, and nobody really has control over it. Obviously if you play four weeks in a row, you're begging for it. But reducing one's schedule down to 10 tournaments is harsh.

Wsisters45
Mar 12th, 2006, 04:34 PM
Lindsay plays on Stadium 2 today against Granville. Should be an easy win. Like 6-3 6-1.

Emmanya
Mar 12th, 2006, 04:39 PM
Here's hoping! But why does Lindsay always get such shitty draws? There are third round matches between qualifiers and wildcards but Lindsay runs into a seed? If this was a better field we might not be having such a comfy win.

Andrew..
Mar 12th, 2006, 04:44 PM
Granville is a ridiculously easy 3r match. An example of a bad draw would be drawing Hingis in the 3r of Miami.

This field blows, but that's not a suprise.

Yeah but she'll get Hingis in the very next round. It gets tough for Lindsay right after Granville.

The Daviator
Mar 12th, 2006, 07:57 PM
No matter how bad the field seems, it's not as bad as the fields were in Tokyo or in Zurich, it's still got JHH, Masha, Elena, Nastya and Hingis...

Beating Hingis, Myskina, Sharapova and Henin-Hardenne for the title (which is what Lindsay may have to do) is impressive, you wouldn't see that sort of run at a GS even...

I seemes to have missed a couple of days of IW.....I just not been able to check any scorelines because I've been so busy....

I'm glad to see Davenport vs Hingis, though I wish is was a final like the good ol' days! I wonder if it will be shown on Eurosport like that showed the first Hingis vs Sharapova even though it wasn't scheduled!

I'm sure it would be a night match too - IW would be stupid not to make it a main event match! If that's the case, it would be early hours of the morning but keep an eye on ES2 scrolling updates as they could alter scheduling and actually show it.

fingers crossed!

Lindsay's attitude was disgusting. I had to look away from the TV. Martina played very well, but this was Lindsay's match to win or lose. I really thought this tournament would say alot about Lindsay and the future. Sadly, it's saying alot about it. She is no longer playing like an elite player, and her attitude is God awful. If you walk onto court like that, why bother playing?

I've tried to support Lindsay since Wimbledon, and taken these hits and losses since then with a positive outlook nonetheless.. but this loss seals it for me. I feel just as defeated as a Lindsay fan as she looks on court. It is just so frustrating, I can't take efforts like these anymore.

I completely agree with you.

The Daviator
Mar 14th, 2006, 11:13 PM
Andrew, you're acting as if Lindsay's demeanour today was something new?

She's ALWAYS like this, and it'll never change, poor body language, slumped shoulders, cursing at herself, appearing despondent - that's Lindsay! The only time when that wasn't Lindsay when during the Wimbledon final, but from her losses to Pierce last year, to her loss to JH-H in Melbourne, that's what she like, and well you know it too...

Feel free to criticise her, you often do, but she's not going to win every match - Hingis was waxed by Mauresmo 6-2 6-2, and now she's beaten Davenport, that's tennis...

I agree she's in a slump in comparison to last year, but it's nothing to do with her attitude, this new coached has f***ed with her serve, anyway, with each loss, retirement is more likely, so let's just enjoy her, hey...

PS, I know I'm new, but I've actually been reading this board for a long time, and I'm familiar with all you Lindsay fans :)

mike/topgun
Mar 14th, 2006, 11:15 PM
Now, it proved...just why I wasn't so enthusiastic bout those bagles earlier on.
I think, that with this kind of form Lindsay has a chance for a GS QF nothing more, though...Todays result says she's not playing good and she's not fired up like she was at Wimbledon, or in AO last year. Her atitiude does say enough. However, 8-3 W-L record in 2006 doesn't look impressive, still LD reamians a top class. She's had a wonderful careere:) and she might bounce back, but it's not going to be easy. When you fall behind almost all of the top players then it's extremaly hard to get back where you belong - we saw this especially in 2002/2003. And as I mentioned earlier it seems to be a fact now, that when her serve is not working - like about over 60% 1st serves in, and then most importantly over 70% of them won, along with a good percentage of second serve points won - then her game's not effective to beat f.e. Hingis.
I'm not being too pesimistic, but I can't see how she would win Wimbledon this year with this form. Nevertheless, I still do hope she'll find her game and regain the confidence once again...for the last time at least;)
The ranking will drop now, and imho Lindz should skip Miami, AI and play Eastbourne to prepare for the Championships. It's not worth all the drama to travel around the States and lose in the 1/4 or 1/8 of the tourneys. I feel like a bad luck turned around...no easy draws for Davenport this season no tournament victories so far.
Maybe "Misses Consistency" could wake up and show some of her best, coz she's still able, or her body doesn't want to cooperate...that'd be another story.

Somehow this feel appropriate:


Where is the moment we need at the most
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost
They tell me your blue skies fade to grey
They tell me your passion's gone away
And I don't need no carryin' on

You stand in the line just to hit a new low
You're faking a smile with the coffee to go
You tell me your life's been way off line
You're falling to pieces everytime
And I don't need no carryin' on

Cause you had a bad day
You're taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don't know
You tell me don't lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
The camera don't lie
You're coming back down and you really don't mind
You had a bad day
You had a bad day

Well you need a blue sky holiday
The point is they laugh at what you say
And I don't need no carryin' on

You had a bad day
You're taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don't know
You tell me don't lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
The camera don't lie
You're coming back down and you really don't mind
You had a bad day

Sometimes the system goes on the blink
And the whole thing turns out wrong
You might not make it back and you know
That you could be well oh that strong
And I'm not wrong

So where is the passion when you need it the most
Oh you and I
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost

Cause you had a bad day
You're taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don't know
You tell me don't lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
You've seen what you like
And how does it feel for one more time
You had a bad day
You had a bad day

I pretty much agree with that. Skip Miami. She'd have to play a top 8 player in the QF, and given her current form, I don't see her getting past that. But, play AI. It's a few hours up the coast, and there's absolutely nobody playing that. Even in poor form, that should be a routine title.

Blah. That's all I have to say about today. I really think this is Lindsay's last year,so I'm not even really gonna get that pissed, and I'm gonna enjoy Lindsay while she's still here. Still,this was disappointing. Her serve still hasn't improved. Coincidently,as her movement is getting better and better,her serve is getting worse and worse....

mike/topgun
Mar 15th, 2006, 12:16 AM
I've just seen the highlights...and what happened to Lindsays 2nd serve?
Martina played great, great match -giving all the credit to her for what she's done on the court. Same time Lindsay somehow forgets how to play against Hingis? Unbelievable, how badly Davenport was choosing directions of her groundiesat in some points. Some outstanding shots they've (both) produced and exactly the same amount of points both have won 86-86 but what a lopsided scoreline...The better player won for sure.
It was a battle and I think next time it could only be better.
Is Mauresmo playing AI:p Imagine a draw :
(1). Davenport Vs (7). Pennetta
(4). Schiavone Vs (6). Groenefeld
(3). Schnyder Vs (8). Likhovtseva
(2). Petrova Vs (5). Myskina
--->that would be ok. like for a "routine title" path:p
Some players atm. like JHH, Sharapova and Hingis are definitely a threat for Davenport. Let's hope for a good draw in the next event she'll decide to play. A title or a good result = a boost of confidence and positive energy, exactly what Linds was lacking against Martina...at least partly.

Andrew..
Mar 15th, 2006, 12:29 AM
Three top ten players are playing AI: Lindsay, Pierce and Petrova. That's a nice field to pick up a title.

Justine, Kim, Sharapova and Mauresmo are in a different league than Lindsay right now, sadly.

Hingis wins latest round of rivalryBy KEN PETERS, AP Sports Writer
March 14, 2006



INDIAN WELLS, Calif. (AP) -- Martina Hingis won the latest round in a rivalry with Lindsay Davenport that stretches back more than a decade, taking a 6-3, 1-6, 6-2 victory Tuesday in the Pacific Life Open.

The 25-year-old Hingis, playing a full schedule this year for the first time since an injury-plagued 2002 campaign, won for the 11th time in 25 career matches against Davenport, 29.

The two former No. 1s, who first played each other in 1995, had not met since 2001 until their fourth-round match at Indian Wells.

With Davenport having trouble keeping the ball in play early, Hingis won the first set simply by being more consistent with her shots. In the second set, the tide changed, with Davenport's forehands and backhands that had been sailing long and wide suddenly landing just inside the lines.

Hingis changed the momentum again quickly in the third set, chasing down almost everything Davenport hit and keeping the ball in play until Davenport eventually made a mistake.

Davenport, ranked No. 4, finished with 42 unforced errors to only 14 by Hingis, who has climbed to No. 32 from 349th when she re-entered the rankings on Jan. 16.

The meeting was their earliest in a tournament since they played in the third round at Roland Garros in 1995, when Davenport won in three sets. They have met in finals 16 times, including Davenport's victories in the 1998 U.S. Open and 2000 Australian Open.

Hingis said the win over Davenport, who usually plays very well in the desert tournament, provides an indication of progress in her comeback.

"Beating Lindsay here under these circumstances on this occasion, it's definitely not easy for me to play her," the Swiss star said. "But now I know that I have the potential to meld with the best, and that's very helpful (with) confidence."

Hingis said it also may have been to her benefit that she has had some time off the tour.

"I was probably a little more fresh," she said. "Probably I was a little more determined, even more hungry. I ran down a lot of shots, which probably other girls try to over-hit or risk too early.

"Even when I had a letdown a little bit in the second set, I just tried to focus in the third early on, just to put her under pressure, and it worked."


Davenport said she enjoys playing Hingis.

"She really makes you go for a lot, and think about shots," Davenport said. "Great mover; places the ball extremely well. I felt like I didn't play great, but I thought she played very smart, which is typical of her.

"That's what she does best. I mean, she's always going to be a good player and be dangerous to anybody."

Although she wasn't using it as an excuse for the loss, Davenport said she had been struggling with a bulging disc in her back for the past month and doctors have recommended that she rest so the injury can heal. "I have this tournament and then Miami, and then I think it's about four to six weeks off," she said. Hingis won the Indian Wells title with a victory over Davenport in 1998, and lost finals to Davenport in 2000 and Daniela Hantuchova in 2002. Davenport has won the tournament twice, the first time in 1997, and was the runner-up four times, including losing to Kim Clijsters last year and Justine Henin-Hardenne the previous year.

mike/topgun
Mar 15th, 2006, 11:32 AM
I don't want to spread panic, but a <<bulging disc>> is not something that you could trifle...I'm convinced that actually it was the main reason Lindsay's serve's sucked through lats month. But it affects your movement generally, so she's definitely feeling, you know, I think even something more than just a stiffness or pain and discomfort. Lindsay's back seems to be very much like damaged since the Wimbledon final when she gave totally her best physicaly and mentaly. Her postHingis interview is typical Davenport in 2006 - "I don't know yet...I would like to play...I have to rest...it's very important for me to play only where I like to play". This really seems like her body is not going to hold up for a longer period of time. I was afraid it'd happen, but i didn't want to see it happening that soon. And troubles with vertebrae L4 is also very common, but still it's dangerous and there're no 100% potent treatement for those kind of injuries even if you heal the inflammation :(. Rehab's something indispensable. With the situation where Lindsay's feeling pain when she gets up it's not optimistic at all even though "there's had been a space between the bulging disc and the nerve" it could turn out to be no space just after that match or in like a week time, or so...
Now I understand why she's so, you know her attitude and everything, still I hope she'll rebuild or recover her physical form - it's significant at this point of her careere.

funkydynamo
Mar 15th, 2006, 11:54 AM
Yeah i agree with Mike/Top Gun. She would have been in a heck of alot of pain with a bulging disk. In fact, I'm surprised her doctors let her play. She needs to stop now, forget Miami and get the 6 weeks of rest or whatever she needs and only come back when she is fully recovered. Don't be too disheartened by this loss fellow TOPS, its hard to move, let alone serve and run and have a winning and positive attitude when you are in alot of pain. I think she put in a pretty gutsy effort all things considered. But no more tennis for now Lindsay, don't risk more permanent career ending damage. Just go home to Jon and rest!

LindsayRulez
Mar 15th, 2006, 01:47 PM
sounds like she's not playing Amelia Island :( which is really my only chance of the year to see her; oh well, obviously it's better for her to rest up and get ready for Wimbledon. I just don't like the fact that she's going to put everything she has into one tournament, because if you don't win that one tournament (and winning slams is obviously a hurdle) then how are you going to feel? Just sad right now I guess

Andrew..
Mar 15th, 2006, 01:52 PM
Ack... That sound much worse than it sounded earlier. Reading her interview, it gets worse and worse as she continues to elaborate on it. L4 injures are bad.

If she insists on playing Miami, the she could take a cortisone shot, but I'm generally not a big fan of those. If I was her, I'd skip Miami, play AI where it's a weak field and a nicer surface for the back, and then not play until Roland Garros. If there's still any pain at that point, just skip it. The good thing is that as it stands now, this WILL get better over time, but playing will only make it worse.

Frederic
Mar 15th, 2006, 03:55 PM
Now it's very hard for her to play... See how the back will be before the match, rest a lot because she is one of the oldest player on the tour... If she can't be fully healthy and trust her body, it's quite useless to play, because now, it will be like gambling. Well, in one tournament (I hope it will be Wimbledon), no injury, no pain, good serves, good strokes, positive Lindsay, confident Lindsay... All those things together at the same moment to see her winning a slam... Improbable...
You know, I wonder whether it's a good idea to play 2006 until the YEC(if she is still in the top 8)... Maybe, she should have retired in 2005 with a victory and as n°1...

Andrew..
Mar 15th, 2006, 04:05 PM

joaco
Mar 15th, 2006, 04:51 PM
I think a smart decision would be to not play Miami, there you have 2 weeks. And then other 2 weeks. The sooner she recovers the better. Health is THE most important subject so she should take care of it and not force it. Besides, what's so good about enduring pain and playing? she's not even enjoying it... :sad:

I agree skip Miami there's no way to win it unless she is absolutely 100% fit so it's just not worth it. I guess AI is just up to her. I think she can win that at under 100% so a good way to pick up a title. I just like Andrew wish we could see a re-match of last year's Amelia Island QF vs. Vee. :lol:
But I'd bet my left eye that Vee won't play this year.

mike/topgun
Mar 15th, 2006, 08:06 PM
I think she'll decide whether to play Miami or AI after some mri scans then consulting it's results with her doctor.I'd rather see her 100% fit in AI than underprepared in Key Biscayne. It all depens on in how serious condition the disc is actually, and of course how (un)comfortable is she feeling with her back and probably we won't know that until she announces where's the tours next stop.
Just wait and see whats going on with the injury, but I'm more than convinced she's not going to play in next 6 weeks...I mean it seems like it's out of her mind atm.
Sadly it all turns out to be her farewell season to the tour, and even now she doesn't stay injury free :rolleyes:

Kimmi
Mar 15th, 2006, 08:10 PM
I think I might be inclined to go with becks on this one.

I's definately skip Miami though. I'm having flashbacks to the US Open Series when she tried to come back too early and ended up 5-0 down to Anna Lena Groenefeld. And that wasn't as serious as this :sad:

I can give you another reason Lindsay should skip Miami. I read in an article this morining she can get a medical expemtion, She can get one of two allowed. She had a injury its not worth playing just to prove a point and it sounds like that's all she's be doing and risking not being fit by Wimbledon even. I hope common sense prevails and she withdraws.

It is confirmed that Lindsay will rest about 6 weeks after Miami, that means no clay (red/green) season, so no Amelia Island... And still confirmed for Miami.

Lindsay's watching the Federer-Ljubicic match.

She's sitting between Mirka and Gwen Stefani. :)

Maybe Rog and Linds are planning on playing mixed together! That would be awesome, Linds could get the full set of titles at Wimbledon! :bounce:

i dont think lindsay will play doubles again

would be a great pair of two champs...almost like Graf/McEnroe in Wimby '99
I think Linds is too 'old' to double the trouble.

I think Lindsay should play Miami and pick off the lower rank players. It's not ideal, but it'll help with her ranking. Unfortunately, however, when players know someone's suffering they're going to believe in themseleves more and give themselves more of a shot.

Let's just hope for a healthy, 100% fit Lindsay and a relatively good draw next time she's playing no matter where it's going to be. I believe now that S.Williams has withdrawn from Miami, Linds will show "the courage" and do the same. But I'm only guessing. May be she'll surprise all of us and will play both Miami and AI?Who knows.
I'd like to see her playing n winning but most importantly enjoying it like she did in 2004 f.e. - it was a re-breakthrough season for Davenport.
BTW any news on the L4 -bulging disc, yet?

God it's tough being a Lindsay fan, the last 3 years she's reached the IW final she's had to play Kim, Justine & Kim again...

Sharapova reaches the final, and who does she get? Dementieva :rolleyes:

Lindsay better get Vento-Kabchi or Pin in the Wimbledon final! :lol:

Yeah, but Dementieva has given Lindsay fits in the past anyways. ;)

Dementieva BLOWS. The matches where she makes Lindsay look stupid make me giggle.
