Well we don't even know if she is going to play but the draw gods have given her a nice little present to look forward to if she does - a quarterfinal with KFC.

This is getting beyond a joke now :lol:

And Peng second round. This draw bites, I hope she withdraws and waits for a good draw she deserves.

Robbie I don't think we'll have to worry as Lindsay has said she is less than 50 percent to play and now she going to put everything into being healthy fir the US Open and why I am not suprised she has drawn Kim. She has played Venus 27 times she will be up that against Kim by the end of the year at the rate they are going.

I'm still not convinced that she'll play - I mean, to not get a game at all out of those 5 against Groenefeld....that tells a story in itself!

She said she'll know by Sunday, so we still have at least another 24 hours to wait before she makes her final desicion. I'd rather her not play to be honest, especially if she's going to have to face Kim - again!?!?!?!?! - in the Quarterfinals. I'd rather Lindsay be 100% fit and 100% there :D

Lindsay'll need to be 100% to play Kim so I don't think she should play either and concentrate on getting back for LA. Lindsay and Kim are by far the best players in the draw, followed by Mary Pierce, and they're all the top half.

yes,i would say so too!but,as she said her chances playing are less than 50-50,i dont think,she will risk it!!better prepare for the UO!how great would that be,if she could lift the title there!!kind of fairytale after that season,right??so,linny i wish you all the best health,and hope i see you soon again!!i need you!! :kiss: :hearts:

Damn....that's one ugly draw.

I really think she'll pull out. I don't see how she can be ready to play by Wednesday, at the latest. Too bad, she'll probably lose #1 now. I want her to pull from all of these California tourneys and show up healthy with a WC at either Toronto or the US Open.

I'll be at the tournament on Wednesday and Thursday, so if she does end up playing, I'll be there for her first match against Peng.

Ah no it won't as Maria has withdrawn for San diego aswell due to of all things a back injury (it must be catchy). Lindsay stays number one for another week. If I remeber correctly it will week 80 at number one altogether and week 42 in this stint if I've done the maths correctly.

Let's hope she can get healthy soon so Maria will earn the ranking not just take off Lindsay.

Oh, what a horrible draw. Peng in the second round and then Kim. Wooooow.

I'm convinced that if she's going to retire, it'll most likely be against Peng, before she has to play Clijsters.

If she is fit, I hope she can take care of Peng better than she did at the FO. That match nearly killed me.

Now Lindsay's withdrawn I'm pretty happy she drew Clijsters. It makes it less 'what if?' If she'd had a cakewalk draw to a final against Clijsters it would have been harder to take.

Yep, pretty glad she withdrew....I kinda knew she would. She had a tough draw so there was no point risking anything for it!

Hope it will heal 100% pretty soon though....it is quite worrying...

Of course it is better for Lindsay to withdraw an be 100% maybe in L.A. But after Sharapova and both Williams sisters also have withdrawn from San Diego, it would have been a good trip to the title for Lindsay, because only Kim is a real challenge.

If she also withdraws from L.A. next week, I hope she will enter at New Haven, because enter the US Open without any match practising on hard court is not so good in my eyes.

she came to wimbledon without playing on grass and got to the final.

she came to RG and got to the quarters without playing any red clay events before hand....

With Wimbledon, not many players warm up at any of the tournaments before it and she simply has to practise that serve and she'll win a few rounds on that.

At Roland Garros, she didn't care much how she did and really could have easily lost in the second round. But, the practise from the green clay offers her atleast something.

On hard court, with so many other players having a full schedule with these events it requires her to be so much more fit mentally and physically. She wants to be a threat to win the Open, so skipping all the events can only do her harm to her chances and ranking. She should play, in my very biased opinion, Toronto because L.A. is incredibly weak and she has to play against the good players. Last year her run over Venus, Serena, Myskina, and so many more provided her with confidence. Toronto is going to have all those players and more, and if she has a really crappy 2nd Round loss she always go to New Haven as an absolute back up. Relying on New Haven, which will force to be playing atleast 10+ matches in the mattter of 2 and a half weeks is not good for that injury.

I really don't think confidence is an issue for Lindsay anymore. 2002/3 Lindsay was beating those she should and then struggling against all the top girls in all events. Now, that's not a problem; she is bubbling with self belief. Playing Toronto before she's ready is not a good idea or if she thinks the conditions are conducive to injury. If she's healed in time she should go to LA and then if not there Toronto or New Haven. If she wants to give her back rest til the US Open it's risky in terms of gauging her back and going in cold but she is not going to be upset by anyone outside the top 10 after being on the tour for so many years and with the confidence wimbledon has given her. I don't think the arguement of testing herself against the top players holds any weight... she knows how she needs to play and what level she needs to be at.

I hope Lindsay comes back for a tournement and then the US Open and has a really good Fall season because she's chosen some great tournies to play and has a real chance to rack up the titles.

i'd just play new haven and the open...get a tourney in b4 the slam for match play and anoth 3 weeks to rest up the back.

New Haven makes the most sense because it's both winnable and gives Lindsay a long recovery period from now. Whether she should play straight before a slam is another matter.
