Apr 11th, 2008, 02:13 AM
well done Linds :) Good effort from k-lina

Apr 11th, 2008, 02:13 AM
Nice recovery from Lindsay though. ;)
Sprem can DEFINITELY take some positives from this, I'd hope.

Apr 11th, 2008, 02:13 AM
Linds :hearts: :banana:
Karo :hug: Great comeback! :D

Apr 11th, 2008, 02:13 AM

Apr 11th, 2008, 02:13 AM
Well done Lindsay!!! Nice fight K-lina u almost had her!!!!

Apr 11th, 2008, 02:14 AM
Wow that was WAY tighter than expected. Just goes to show how great Sprem must be playing.

Congrats Lindsay! :yeah:

Apr 11th, 2008, 02:14 AM
sprem :eek:

Apr 11th, 2008, 02:14 AM
Lindsay! :bounce::hearts: Close one, but it's clay so I'll forgive you. ;)

K-Lina:hug: Fantastic comeback. I hope it continues in this manner.

Apr 11th, 2008, 02:14 AM
Lindsay! :banana:
Now, please find your serve for the next round. Good luck!

Apr 11th, 2008, 02:15 AM


Apr 11th, 2008, 02:15 AM
:sad: awesome fight though karolina!! you hung in until the very end. can't wait for her next tournament!!

Apr 11th, 2008, 02:16 AM
Lindsay! :D

It was a very tough match for Lindsay and I hope she'll be ready tomorrow against Szavay.

:hug: for Karo and her fans, it's still a great comeback for her :)

Apr 11th, 2008, 02:16 AM
Awwwww K-Lina :hug: Soooo close. :bigcry: A few of those games in the 3rd set could have gone either way, but Lindsay showed why she was the top player and Karolina wasn't: crunch time.

Anyway, Karolina should be very proud of herself. Qualified, beat 2 high quality players including a top-tenner, and then stretched one of the best in the world who she'd never previously taken a set from. Hopefully she takes some confidence from this and keeps up her form. It's so great to have her back. :hearts:

Good luck in your next event, K-Lina. :kiss: :hug: Keep your head up.

Apr 11th, 2008, 02:16 AM
Expected close three setter! Great win for Lindsay because Sprem is at the moment an big opponent. Thanks that she won this game.

Good comeback from Sprem, nice. ;)

And now beat Agnes "I smile always, if I lose or win" Szavay, Lindsay! :worship:

Apr 11th, 2008, 02:17 AM
Nice win, Lindsay. Good luck against Szavay! I can't wait to see her live tomorrow. :hearts:

What a great comeback so far from K-Lina. She's showing the talent she posesses and I really hope that she can keep this level of play up as she could really make a lot of noise in the future.

Apr 11th, 2008, 02:17 AM
So close. :sobbing:

Still an amazing week from K-Lina. :worship:
So proud of you. :hug:

Apr 11th, 2008, 02:18 AM
Congrats to Lindsay and her fans! :)

Karolina, you were so close! :sobbing: :hysteric: :sobbing:

Apr 11th, 2008, 02:20 AM
I really though Lindsay was going to lose when she went down a break in the 3rd. She wasn't getting any of her serves in but she seemed to find a second wind. Congrats.

Awesome week for K-Lina :)

Apr 11th, 2008, 02:20 AM
Congrats Lindsay and good tournament Karolina

Apr 11th, 2008, 02:21 AM
K-Lina! :sobbing:

So close, you'll get her next time. Great week regardless.

Apr 11th, 2008, 02:37 AM
Good fight Linds!

Keep this form up Karolina

Apr 11th, 2008, 03:22 AM
i just hope karolina makes something of this instead of falling back into old habits. :scared:

Apr 11th, 2008, 03:41 AM
Well done Linds :D

No wonder it confused the hell out of me this morning and I wasn't even drunk:lol::lol:

Apr 11th, 2008, 04:47 AM
Hmmm...I thought I saw a thread earlier today that said Lindsay beat Karolina 6-2 6-2 :confused:

Apr 11th, 2008, 04:48 AM
Karolina :sad:

Apr 11th, 2008, 04:53 AM
Awesome win Lindsay! Glad to see you pull out such a tough match. :yeah:

Great tournament for Sprem too! I bet most players would love to have the same start to their comeback like she has had.:hearts:

Lindsay :D

Apr 11th, 2008, 06:53 AM
Any clay victory is a great victory for Lindsay. I'm not at all surprised it was a three setter. Good to see K-lina back and playing some good ball. Hope Lindsay wins tomorrow and plays Maria in the Semi finals.

Apr 11th, 2008, 07:20 AM
Lİndsay Goooooooooooooo

Apr 11th, 2008, 07:32 AM
Well done Linds :yeah: wouldn't mind seeing her win this title :D

K-Lina :hug: great effort.

Apr 11th, 2008, 08:01 AM
I'd just like to say I love Karolina Sprem. She rocks my world. I hope she can keep playing well. :hearts: AJMO :hearts:

Oh, and I hope Lindsay wins the title.


Apr 11th, 2008, 08:02 AM
