Too bad Serena's gonna crush Lindsay tomorrow. Some of you might think ooh, I don't know, I think Lindsay might win in tough three sets, get real!!! Lindsay this Open is not the same Lindsay last year's Open. She maybe thinner, but not 100% physically or mentally. Also, Serena has improved tramedously this year. I'd say Serena will blow Lindsay off the court in 45 minutes, 6/2 6/2.

You are correct Lindsay has not played this Serena. But Lindsay's serve is an awesome weapon and hard to break. Lindsay may win that many in the first set, but after that its down hill. At least that is how I see it. :cool:

We'll have to wait and see, I reckon.
Sep 6th, 2002, 05:35 AM
Maybe Serena will win 6-2,6-1 OMG, i hope not that easy

Remember Lindsay put up a tough first set against Venus in New Heaven..... don't underestimate Lindsay's talent!!!

Close 1st Set but she got served a bagel in the second!
I think that Lindsay has come back as well as she can. She is consistently beating those ranked below her. She even spanked Jelena pretty bad at Stanford! However, Serena has always been a tough player for Lindsay to handle. I am not sure why. She seems to prefer playing Venus (maybe not anymore after their last two meetings).
With the way Serena has been playing, I think that it'll be very hard for Lindsay to get past her. Lindsay is skinnier and maybe more fit, but she's not any faster. That doesn't bode well for a match against Serena.
I think that Lindsay will get three games in the first set, and two games in the second set. But it's already awesome that she's made it into the semi's (although she did have an incredibly easy draw!).

I think Lindsay prefers to play Serena. Venus has had her number for awhile now. For some odd reason Venus beats Lindsay easier then Serena does. Also Serena beats Hingis easier then Venus does.
Anyhow, with that stated I think Lindsay has the game to beat Serena. I think she'll win but I think she can get more then 5 games. Although I wouldn't be surprised if she didn't.
LINDSAY WORK SERENA if VENUS wins against MOMO. If not then Serena trounce her.

Please don't under estimate Lindsay!

As much as I want to smack Serenus across the head, I can't say I totally disagree.
Serena has been devastating so far and there is really not a lot of reasons why she can't plow through Lindsay.
HOWEVER!!!!!!! Lindsay is not a flash in the pan. If she can keep the balls deep, serve well and TAKE ADVANTAGE OF HER OPPORTUNITIES, she could definitely be Serena's worst nightmare.

i agree with dawn
Lindsay tends to give up against Venus ( i wonder why ?)
but even though Serena has a better record against her, Lindsay does not 'give up' against serena (for want of a better word).
when you consider that Lindsay has a better (fighting) attitude-when playing serena, serves lethally and Serena has not been properly tested - i'm not sure the match won't be more competitive than people are giving Lindsay credit for
Go LINDSAY; GO SERENA
GOOOO VENUS and take the whole damn thing

Lindsay is going to fight for every points...
I dun want to see easy match..
i hope it wii be like 7-6 6-7 7-6 for Lindsay :) ;)

Gawd, how I despise crap like this. :rolleyes:
My fave is gonna crush _________ (fill in the blank). How schoolyard.
You'd think this poster actually helped to train Serena to help her improve tremendously this past year. What's the big whoop anyway? Even if Lindsay should get blown off the court tomorrow, she's just back from a serious injury/surgery. Give it a couple of months...when Lindsay has had the chance to get her head back into the game, perhaps then this topic might be worthy of a debate.

even if Lindsay get blown off court today, so what? Lindsay still had a great US Open, she still know deep down she can improve and compete against teh elite in the future.
Even if Serena crush Lindsay today, so what? Serena still got one more match to play before claiming the open, it is not that blowing Lindsay off court would have chnage this fact.
Sep 6th, 2002, 11:38 AM
Let's just wait and see what happens ;)
Goooooooooo Lindsay :bounce:
Sep 6th, 2002, 11:49 AM
GO LINDSAY!!!!!!!!!!!! Show us what you can do !!!
Sep 6th, 2002, 12:02 PM
Don't you just love people with a crystal ball? How much money are you betting on it, Serenus?
Sep 6th, 2002, 12:03 PM
only the future can tell :p go Lindsay
Sep 6th, 2002, 11:16 PM
ok Lindsay won 6 games already :p
c'mon Linds! :D
Sep 6th, 2002, 11:21 PM
Lindsay just broke and won her 7th game :D
Sep 6th, 2002, 11:45 PM
Serenus, you jinxed Serena.
Hopefully she will overcome your curse.
If not, Venus will have to finish the job all by herself.
Sep 6th, 2002, 11:52 PM
Linds won 8 games, thx linds ;) Linds played a great tournament and should be really proud of herself :D
so you lost the bet, a pity we didn't bet for a lot of money :( :cool:

Lindsay played an excellent second set. I was rooting for Serena, but I really like Lindsay and am glad that she is doing so well in her return. She almost took Serena to her first 3 set match of the tournament.
