OMG LINDSAY!!!!:bounce:


I have never ever been more into a Lindsay match when she wasn't playing one of my faves. She is just such a wondeful woman and really deserves to do well here. I AM SOO HAPPY FOR HER!!! Lindsay/Serena FINAL!!!

Both times serving for the match down 15-40, wow, this is really the type of match she is used to losing. She never fights this well. LINDSAY CONGRATS!!! I am impressed.:D

Great run ALicia, you'll be back!!!

Just put Davenport in the final.

Dechy? Yeah.. right.

i feel sorry for alicia. i actually wanted more for her to win this. it could have been a fairy tale story for her. it was a very close match. couldn't get any closer than that. alas, lindsay reminded her of reality and ended her dream run. i think the top players should take molik seriously now. she can win a slam. :)

lindsay this is your chance. next up dechy. get into the finals and win the freaking title. no excuses this time. ;)

That was a wonderful match. It shows what a good serve on both ladies can do for the women's game. It was like watching men's tennis but less boring :)

Lindsay! :worship: I don't know how you won that last service game in the end.

I'm off to bed. Too tired for emotions,

Alicia got that horrible call at Advantage Molik at 7-7 when she served an ace and it was called a fault. :(

Simply amazing tennis from both people. Molik looks like the future of tennis.....

It was so close... :sad: A few bad calls... like an ace which Molik hit on game point at 7-7 was called out when it was half on the line.. Linds went on the break in that game..

Oh well.. better luck next time Alicia! :D

:bigcry: NOOOOOOO but what a fight from Alicia :D

The only thing she did wrong all day was NOT convert one of SO MANY BP's in that 3rd set...

But a great showing from Alicia to take the world #1 to 9-7 in the 3rd. She certainly deserves her place in the top 10.

Alicia got rorted at 7-7, 40-30 in the 3rd when she hit an ace but it was called out. Hawkeye showed it right on the line. Alicia would have had an 8-7 lead and maybe things would have been different...

Good luck for the rest of the tournament, Lindsay. You played like a true champion

I didn't see this coming....
Coz' Alicia was very determined and have the whole crowd behind her....
On the other hand, Lindsay looked dejected, bouncing her racquet!!!

Alicia was unlucky with the call on her serve at 7-7, she served a 3rd ace in a row and should have won that game to go up 8-7.... in fact, the linesman called it a fault!!! :o

Thumbs up to Lindsay though, came up with good plays after down 15-40 2nd time again to serve for the match......

Looks like Lindsay always have a tough match at AusOpen.... losing to Justine 2 years ago 9-7 in the final set!!!

What a match!!! What a fight from both women!!! :worship:

poor alicia, i wanted her to win it, it would have been a nice birthday present for her :sad:
I wanted Alicia to win too. :sad: However there is nothing to be a shame of about her performence on this match. Both Lindsay and Alicia played excellent tennis. This is the best match so far in this tournament. :D I hope better matches to come in the semis.

Chance
Jan 26th, 2005, 04:03 AM
Congratulations Lindsay! I thought you would let it slip through your fingers like in Wimbly but you fought hard... Now Get to the final!!!!


Alicia, great effort..... I'm feeling guilty for not wanting her to win- she comes across as a sweet girl. Pity about the line call at 7-7....

Btw if you look at the draw on ausopen.org for the semis- it has Lindsay Davenport vs unknown :( you can't even tell there is another quarterfinal going on...shitty coverage

poor alicia, i wanted her to win it, it would have been a nice birthday present for her :sad:

:sad: her dream run has come to an end. but look at the bright side, this is just the beginning. if she plays like she did in this AO, i believe she'll have many many more chances to win a slam. top 5 lookout!! :)

lindsay, i never thought she was such a fighter. :eek: :worship: she always seem to lose the close matches. she really wants this AO. i really really want her to win this title now. :lol:

Lindsay looked like she was the world's no.1000 towards the end of the second set... she was not attacking molik's serves and she was on defense! i was disappointed and worried, and I still felt that way when i came back to see lindsay trailing 6-7!!! She was like giving up... i swear the whole geo lesson I was so worried that Lindsay would lose the match... thank god she pulled it off in the end.... but i don't have a good feeling for her next matches :(

Awesome match! :worship:
It's hilarious how Lindsay looks like she's putting in no effort whether she's winning or losing. The look on her face doesn't tell you if she's up 5-0 or if she's serving to stay in the match:lol: It's all just a casual day at the office ;)

Great match by Alicia, nothing to be ashamed of at all :worship:
Congrats Lindsay! now win it all if you're not too tired that is:p

Great match by both players to day. Lindsay is my girl but I actually applauded Alicia on several occasions.

Moliks attitude is fantastic and I really think she is gonna do big things in 2005.

As for my girl, so glad to see her fighting so hard and valient again. Guys I really hope she wins the title.
