When Jennifer plays Lindsay she needs to go in like she is playing Serena. For some reason even though Jenn has lost to Serena in the past so many times it seems as though Jenn has "that fire" and determination. But when she plays against Lindsay who is a step slower the Rena, it seems as though she is lost.

As for Lindsay, same thing. She needs to pretend that Serena is Jennifer when she plays Rena. I know this sounds strange. But I am trying to make a point.

It amazes me how some people go into a match so differently with diff opponents. I would almost prefer Jennifer to face Serena than Lindsay.

serena has problems playing jen. I think all those beat downs in 2001 unnerved her and she never never ever wants to lose to jen again which is why she gets so jittery and anxious. You never see serena like that when she plays lindsay.

Exactly, it seems as though all 3 are totally different players when they play a certain other

Agree with that. JenCap has good matches with Serena and Lindsay though - it's not a complete stretch of imagination to see her winning a couple. It's against Venus that she needs to sort herself out.

Considering how many times jen has played bopth Lindsay and venus compared to only four times against venus, it is difficult to judge how mental it is to play Venus for her. Venus on the other can be very crisp for tournys in a row and then play a macth she doesn't show up in at all. Who knows, if jen meets her when she is off that could unlock it for her! On the other hand, Venus and serena play jen like it is personal and they always rise against her. At the year end champs Serena wasn't really crisp, beat jelena 7/6 and 6/0. (jelena is one of those player when she loses a set packs up esp against top player) Jen also rose to meet serena coz serena seems to do this in her. Serena was ripe for the taking and Kim actually it the next day.

Very good thought. It's so true imo. And this is one of the fun thing in tennis.
