lol well we've got it and it'll be played on Australia Day - so beware it's going to be one hell of a day *eek!*

I've decided I can't decide who I want to win - I want Lindsay to win because she's been my favourite player for over the last decade while being Australian I should be going for Alicia.

So I've decided I'm just going to skip straight ahead to the SF and whoever progresses then to follow them all the way through :)

nah u gotta stay faithful to the one you supported the whole time...

look at me! im a traitor and im proud - i was wishing for tim henman to lose!

lol I wanted him to lose only because I want to see Davydenko vs Duckman.

But you see in my case is I've been following both Lindsay and Alicia since they started :)

It's only because Lindsay's been on tour the longest (and is older) hence why it's been over a decade - Alicia probably it's almost 8 years I've been following her (since she was about 16-17) so Lindsay would win the longest battle by 2 years *g*

Hence why I'm torn - so I'm going to try and black out the singles and concentrate on the doubles - cheer Lindsay and Corina onto a SF place instead :)

ETA: There is one thing I'm certain of - I want Serena to beat Amelie tomorrow.... you see I don't want Serena to win the tournament but if she could knock out Amelie it means Lindsay's no 1 position is guaranteed to at least the Pan Pac Open :)

OOOO lindsay vs Molik, Lindsay to win that ofcourse, i like molki and everything, glad she beat venus, but she'll be knackered after that match.

Come on Lindsay :bounce: if she can get through this she has a fantastic chance of reaching the final!!

I really believe she has it in her but it will be tough the Australians want this so bad, i think this isn't goin to be Alicia's last chance but it is Lindsays, Alicia will be pumped and as she said already "Bring It On" so it isn't goin to be easy but Lindsay has the game to take it!!

:bounce: C'mon Lindsay :bounce:

If you support Lindsay and Alicia equally you have an advantage over us... you'll be happy either way and can admire both players whilst we might be gutted.

Go Lindsay!!!! I know she can do it. She just has to stay concentrated on her game, playing just like last time, when she won 6/1 6/0...

One thing's for sure - if she beats Alicia the crowd will be on her side in the SF :) I know Lindsay doesn't care if the crowd is on her side, etc - but pretty much every single match I attended to the crowd has been supporting her (even when she was playing doubles against Evie and Daniella)

I want to hear the crowd boo her. The last time a crowd was really on her was in Stanford a few years ago, and she thrived off of it.

gossipcom
Jan 24th, 2005, 11:25 PM
lol! Actually we're a pretty good crowd we don't boo - unless there's a major decision that was bad big time (aka Sharapova vs Lee-Waters) ;) unlike the Spaniards @ DC we know how to act - though tomorrow it might be a different story because it is Australia Day :)

It may have been 6-1 6-0 last time but Alicia is a MUCH more together player at the moment and her confidence is highest it has ever been. I would be EXTREMELY surprised if that is the same scoreline and if Lindsay's serve does not improve over her last match...............

Hey I've been good for once :) I'm just saying the crowd technically won't boo tomorrow unless something drastically goes Lindsay's way - heck I'll take a 3 set win ;)

aussies are nice...they dont boo (well from what i've heard :))

We don't - we're probably one of the fairest crowds when it comes to this sports-crazy nation :)

The only time they booed something was during the last week when Sharapova got past Lindsay Lee-Waters and the point to bring up match point was clearly out but was overruled as in (when the replays showed it was out as well) - the RLA crowd booed it :)

You are so lucky in Australia. On the contrary, the french crowd is absolutely horrible!!! I remember the semifinal match Henin/Serena, they were an umpiring mistake, and the crowd was against Serena, it was totally unfair, when I saw the situation on tv, I wanted to kill the crowd!lol!!!! (my mother can prove it!!!). There are so much more examples of this crappy crowd... As regards Lindsay's match against Molik, I think the two player are very fairplay, they respect each other, so there won't be any problems. But I still want Lindsay to win this match!!!! GO LINDSAY!!!!!!!

I do think Lindsay will be far more able to keep her serve to Alicia's backhand side than Venus was (if it doesn't play up like it did against Sprem!), and she will try more to keep the ball on Alicia's backand side as well during the rallies. i just don't think it is going to be 6-1 6-0. I give Alicia the underdog status but we all know what can happen with the underdog story don't we?! LOL

I think it's better than she's playing Alicia in the day session... in the night match against the crowd seemed very close and fiesty... I don't know if that makes sense.

It is very important for Lindsay to get off to a good fast start.

In Stanford Lindsay was targetting Venus's forehand throughout and hopefully she'll be able to manuveur her shots onto Molik's backhand. Deep to the backhand should bring about short replies.

lol Frederic a big WORD there :)

I think the reason we're a good crowd is because we just love our sport in general, so we're adaptable to whatever we're watching - plus we've seen how our players have been treated in other countries and we don't want to return the disrespect they've received.

when I saw this match up I felt for the first time ever, feeling..... well who ever winsthis match Im behind them for the win of the slam, but after about 2 points of the match I was behind lindsay all the way. I must admit I feel alicia is the one I will follow when that dreaded day comes, when Lindsay waves us good bye
