Fran played good serving 7 aces. Lindsay is just too good today.

Lindsay could have beaten her easier, but linds is still having issues closing out sets.

I am watching it right now at 3-2 in first set and Lindsay is absolutely hitting the crap out of her returns. :unsure:

That is a bit of a worry about her serving but it will improve with match practice but overall i'm pretty happy with everything

It's on ESPN. Played very well to get up 5-2, a couple of lousey games/Fran playing better to 5-4, then served it out well. Great serve stats.

She's moving well for her - I don't notice her visibly faster or slower than she was in 2005. She's made a few silly errors, but that's to be expected - she's been fighting well in some games, making great, deep returns, and has had a high 1st serve % with only 1DF I believe. She hasn't gotten down on herself, even when it was 5-2 to 5-4, laughing a bit, smiling at times (no fist pumps circa fall 2005 though. :sad: ) For her second tournament back since March, and considering that bleakocity of a loss to Stosur, she's playing far better than I'd expect.

Watching on ESPN2,

Movement, could be better, she's trying though. Footwork doesn't look too bad.

2nd serves, haven't seen enough...

Sharpness, overall it's good, she is having issues closing out set and matches, but that was to be expected. She is shanking balls here and there.

Attitude, lol, first three games in and she was already talking to herself. She's doing it shanks and misshits. Have yet to hear her drop the f bomb though. ;)

Oh, and her passing shots are :drool: ditto on her overall returns. lol.

Thank you very much.

Sounds like she's playing much better than in San Diego, which is surprising considering she had looked horrendous in practice (according to posters in New Haven).

LOL... I juz watched ESPN2 interview with Lindsay.. I must say that she is really popular with the commentators...

They seem to really like her and joking with her about playing for another 5 years!! lol...

Oh they were also complaining bout her not able to get WCs..

Anyways Congrats!!

Hope she manages to play good and beat Momo tml...

She's my pick for the USO. She got a decent draw and I think her matches there are totally winable.

As far as New Haven, I think she'll take Mauresmo out. I like Momo, but if Lindsay's return game is on, as well as her serve, then Momo doesn't stand a chance.

Davenport played very well, especially considering she isn't very deep into her comeback. I do have to say, though, that I was pretty disappointed in Schiavone: when you have that style of game you can't hit as many UEs as she hit today.

True, but on the other hand I think Schiavone felt pressured to take more risks. Either way, she was going to lose.

When Schiavone is off she is probably the worst player in the top 30. I've seen her on a bad day... It wasn't pretty...

i think its a bit premature to say shes your fave for the title.. shes played 3 matches since march.

Let's wait for the match tonight. Schiavone is not as good as in the first half of the year.

But good to see her back in a quarter.
