She's #7 (I think) right now. #5 is in reach if she makes a bunch of semis. #4's gonna be real hard cause JH2 defends nothing at RG. And clay is not Lindsay's best surface.

I think she'll get to #5 easy then have a battle with Justine for the #4 spot!
Feb 24th, 2003, 11:43 PM
#4 is a real possibility.
While Justine has nother to defend at the French, she has a lot of pts to defend up to the French.
Finals at Amelia Island
Quarters at Hamburg
Won in German
Finals in Rome
Semis at Wimbledon
Lindsay has nothing. Granted, Clay isn't her best. But she's better then the players she will be playing to reach the QF, SF. So, I see Davenport back in top 4 after Wimbledon.

#4 But I want Jennifer Capriati to be higher than her - she moves better and has a better attitude. Lindsay is a negative beast!

If she stays as she was in AO, I can't see her getting higher then 5. If she becomes her old self or better, then she can compete for non-clay GS titles again. She just doesn't seem to like clay very much.

she should get to #5, i'd like to see her at #4 but at the moment i'd be happy for her to get to #5.

#3 after Wimby is my guess...
Feb 25th, 2003, 02:01 AM
#3 is quite a way away. she actually has a good chance to gain on henin there because henin got to the semis so if justine doesn't defend her points then davenport could catch her.
Feb 25th, 2003, 02:45 AM
i say 3
Feb 25th, 2003, 02:59 AM
4 before french
3 after french
2 after wimbledon
Feb 25th, 2003, 03:03 AM
if lindsay had gotten to the semi's at Oz, i'd say top 3, and unfortunately the current top four all got to the semi's, so at least top 5 for davenport, her and justine will be fighting for the #4 spot during wimbledon...and just maybe she might get to #3 because kim is defending a lot of points in the indoor season...

i Say she should be number 5 before wimby, then be 4 after wimby. I think the top four now will make the SF at RG, but I think Davenport will take a Semi spot from clijsters at wimby. Lindsay should at least QF and SF one of the big summer tournies. I say she could SF or final IW, and QF or SF at Miami, she won't play a lot on clay, but shold gain some points, nad probably make the 4thround or QF at R; but no further.

Lindsay is a negative beast? Can somebody tell me from what pebble downtheline crawled from under?
If you are trying to get respect around here as a new poster I can tell you now you are losing it rapidly.
Feb 25th, 2003, 04:01 AM
Yes, #5 will be easy, and #4 will be possible.
Feb 25th, 2003, 04:03 AM
I think she'll go no higher than #5 this year...

So either you already know the draw for Wimbledon or have the mistaken impression that anything short of beating Justine Henin in the Roland Garros Final would give Lindsay a chance of knocking Kim out of the top 4.

Lets look at the numbers: Lindsay is 1,424 points behind Clijsters before Scottsdale and has no points to defend until Stanford. Kim has 750 points to defend and Justine has the bulk of her points to defend with 1628, between now and the start of the California hardcourt season. I think ultimately the footrace will be between Kim and Lindsay to be at number 3 come Cali-hardcort season. I think Justine just simply has too many points to defend and will eventually loose enough ground to get LD back up to at least number 4. A lot also rides on LD and how serious she is about getting back to the top and whether she "decides" to skip the clay court season again this year. If LD just plays the GS and Tier I's: IW, Miami, Charleston, Berlin, Rome, Roland Garros and Wimbledon and just collect a little over 200 points from these tournaments 200 X 7= 1,400+ points.
The other part of the equation is KC and how she does. She has plenty of big tournaments to pick up big points: IW, Berlin, Roland Garros and Wimbledon to be a real threat for the number 2 position and to further distance herself from LD and Justine.
