hello TOPs,

i have thought of this idea whilst hitting heavily with my tennis racket and thinking hopelessly of lindsay. sigh ...

anyway, i was thinking of making a lindsay career timeline that we can look to and marvel and remember the good and not so good times during lindsay's career.

our aim is to make this as thorough, preferably from 2001 and backwards.

example:

2001:

ao - semifinal
toray ppo - winner
etc, etc


WE NEED WRITE UPS, PICS and other stuff like this ...

come on guys, i know this would require a bit more effort but it would be a great way for us TOPs to bond together more (i mean, besides our passion for parties ;))



OH AND GOOD NEWS! JAN IS COMING BACK SOON!


COMMENTS and others post here!

A great idea jacs, I'll see what I can root out with being head spy and all. It seems that I'm now able to post from uni now - I now use internet explorer instead of netscape - I've just figured it out!

I can try to scan in the Lindsay intervievs from ACE magazine and post them here if you want. Then we could get a couple of her trophey pics next to the tournies where she was a winner!

Catch you later,
-Rachel :)

i'm up for it. dont have a clue how to put pictures on. just a thought though..how are we gonna do cos we will all be posting stuff at diffeerent times and possibly double the info.

so i thought that all those who want to get involved will be dedicated a year...eg jacs-1994 etc etc. or someone could be incharge of getting pics for certain years..just an idea.

well im up 4 it......as usual;)

just let me know what u want me to do....but remember i cant do the pics...sorry

niftymk & kelly - great! i was actually thinking of maybe assigning years to TOPs ... quite difficult though as not all of us are here.

and pics are not the only thing we need ... we also are in search of results, injury times, exhibitions played, TV guestings, or that sort ... :)

WOW! i found this great site when i was searching for stuff:

http://www.angelfire.com/ca/lindsaydavenport/

its so amazing! it has pics (which i didnt check out, but im sure r fantastic) which stretch from '97-'99! not only that, but it has the career highlights which stretch back all the way to '91!!!! :eek: amazing! it also has some articles (a couple) that are all about lindsay. and also, it has the specific statistics by year in both singles and doubles from '97-'99!!! :eek: i was amazed! so if you want, feel free to check it out! :kiss:

if you need any info, its still comin' - im still checking and searching for stuff. also, if you want, i can post that stuff from the site and post it here (or in the new thread if that's being made...). just let me know!!!!

YAY LINDSAY!!! :wavey: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :cool: :hearts: :kiss: :hearts: :cool: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :wavey:

Here are a couple of sites that might be useful, one's really great and is regularly updated and the other hasn't been updated since Lindsay won the Aussie Open in 2000 LOL

This is the really good one, with updates, pictures, stats and results:

http://home.das-berlin.de/lindsay_davenport/

This is the not so great one but it does have some useful stats etc, it also has lots of links to interviews & articals-even one from '96, so I guess it's not so bad, it just doesn't get updated:

http://www.lindsaydavenport.org.uk/

Hope this is useful for you guys :)

all these are so great guys! good work TOPs! keep the research coming.

and kelly, no dear, you are not sad. i used to do clippings of every lindsay tournament before. and i computed rankings. now that's worse, LOL.




okay, ive been thinking about this and ive decided that maybe we should do it as a group. so that the 'bonding' maybe better for us all. it may take sometime but it would be more fun that way. i guess :)


okay, let's start from 1991 .let's find as many things we can about lindsay from that year. post them here.

ok, so i cant find a lot of stuff out there, but i did find one thing. in 1991 it says that she was named the female junior player of the year by TENNIS magazine YAY! :hearts: :eek: :hearts:. well, thats the latest. i dont know if there's any more stuff out there just b/c that was way @ the beginning! ill keep looking for stuff! :)

go lindsay! :bounce: :bounce: :cool: :hearts: :cool: :bounce: :bounce: f
