Seles Wins 3-6 7-6(6) 6-4

Ok Lindsay still has a match to win but a 10-0 record suggests that this is the final.

This is really hard to call because of several factors:

1) That Darn Ankle
2) Carpet
3) Lindsays Choking (Back off, its late)
4) Lindsay just cant win a title
5) Monicas 'lapses'
5) H2H as it is
6) Moni hasnt beaten Davy without Saving MP

6-3 5-7 6-3 Davenport

Lindsay is not in the Final yet.

And is there anyone on this board who has a clue how to spell "choking", "loser", or "Evert"? Raise your hands.

talk about jinxing someone can we change this thread to Lisa and Monica? ;)

Feb 1st, 2003, 06:24 AM
Well, not only does the thread disrespect Lisa, but it disrespects Monica as well, assuming that Lindsay would win but waiting to see what Monica does before posting the poll.

Considering Lisa is up a set, you are really premature.;)

Feb 1st, 2003, 06:42 AM
Yeah would you like to change the poll? :)

Lol, damn your brave cause me thinks I would have deleted this thread by now.

Feb 1st, 2003, 06:46 AM
I hear Davenport fans are assembling a posse to go after the starter of this thread. The word "jinx" can be heard in their mutterings.

I would advise laying low. ;)

Feb 1st, 2003, 06:48 AM
Lindsay in convincing straight sets.;)

Okay, now the poll is relevant.

Monica in three!!


:bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

Feb 1st, 2003, 08:01 AM
Lindsay in two or maybe three

Feb 1st, 2003, 08:18 AM
Lindsay in two straight sets!!!!!

Feb 1st, 2003, 08:29 AM
This is a tough final...could go either way.

Monica is hoping to be in top form, she has won a tier one since 2000...and not even a tier two in a while.; while Lindsay NEEDS a title. She hasn't won a title since 2001, and this would help her confidence

My vote: Lindsay 75 75

Feb 1st, 2003, 08:32 AM
I hope Lindsay in two or three :)

There are so many themes to this final though. High Drama ;)

Feb 1st, 2003, 09:00 AM
Lindsay in 3!!

Feb 1st, 2003, 09:09 AM

LD will find some way to choke the match away!

Feb 1st, 2003, 10:27 AM
Lindsay MUST win this - and please on the 1st match-point. :rolleyes:

Feb 1st, 2003, 10:42 AM
yes Lindsay deserves a title to give her confidence..pls God let Lindsay win this! :kiss:

Feb 1st, 2003, 01:04 PM
Its tough to call because Lindsays been choking in finals recently, but Monica is slightly injured and not in her best form. It'll be 3 sets, but i think Monica will find a way to win.

Feb 1st, 2003, 01:54 PM
Go Monica!

Feb 1st, 2003, 01:59 PM
Monica in 2!!!! :bounce:

Feb 1st, 2003, 02:06 PM

Feb 1st, 2003, 04:12 PM
I see Lindsay leading 3-6, 7-5, 4-0 and finally loosing 3-6, 7-5, 4-6....

Feb 1st, 2003, 05:07 PM

It would be nice to see Monica win this in straight sets.

Monica has more on the line here than Lindsay. She will drop to #10 if she loses but move to #8 if she wins. Davenport will be #9 or #10 depending on the result. But over the next 6 months, Lindsay has no points to defend and will quickly move up to the top 5 even if she just makes finals semis and quarters of tournaments. Monica has a lot of points to defend to keep in the top 10.

If Monica's ankle is really impairing her mobility, I do not see her winning. Hopefully the ankle is OK and she will take it to Davenport.

I saw some highlights of Monica's match against Chanda and her movement wasn't that good, because of her ankle i presume...Really hope she can win the tounrey!!!!Go Monica!!!!!!!!!She looks fit though!:)Which is good to see!
