lindsay in 2 sets. i think her game would match up quite well against jelena..

jelena can beat her, but jelena needs to be very sharp and move very well

I would like to see Lindsay thrash Jankovic but I don't think it will happen. The reality is that if this score line happens it will be the other way around but I would love to be proven wrong and if the Lindsay from the first round comes to play there's a chance it could be belting by Lindsay.

Jelena in two as Lindsay finishes her singles campaign after a very successful return and two solid wins.

jelena in 2 tight sets... cant see one of the best players on tour losing to a mama on her comeback!! lol!

but hopefully it'll be a good match and show lindsay where she is in the game and what she needs to work on to get back up to the top...

If Davenport get's close to a win against Jelena, I'm gonna call the WTA Tour a bad joke as a matter of fact.

If any player returns in her 30s only a couple of months after having given birth and beats the world #3 (and probably #2 in the end of the year) - the tour is a joke. Even if this very player is a former number 1.

So: Jelena in 2.

You think Jankovic is REALLY the second-third best player in the world? :tape:

I agree that Lindsay probably isn't ready for this big a win so Jankvovic SHOULD win,but a lot of top players do great after long lay offs,doesnt mean the tour is a joke.

I think JJ will win, but I hope Linds makes it "close".
Her timing seems to have come back quickly which is key for her. JJ is so quick that she could give Linds some troubles, though.

Jelena is probably the one who is tired.
Giving 8 games to Casey is not a good sign.

If Jelena thinks she can this match against Lindsay with that serve of hers, she has another thing coming.
Lindsay isn't Venus, she doesn't need to go all out on a return for it to be effective.
As much as Jelena is good at directing a ball, the relatively flatness is going to make it hard to do it after every shot, something she likes to do from time to time.

jelena in two sets. she might have a problem or two in the first set, but the second one will be one-way traffic. she's just in better shape. but good to have lindsay back, although i'm not a huge fan.

mike/topgun
Sep 13th, 2007, 06:31 PM
There's no way Lindsay will trash Jelena who plays similar to Clijsters. But if she serves like in the 1st match vs Elenia she's got a chcance to make it an even contest. I'd say Janko 7-6, 6-2:(

It could go either way (hard to know what to expect). If I had to put my house on it, I’d say Jankovic in 3.

She's saying that she's tired since like Roland Garros :lol: so I wouldn't pay much attention to it, I guess after 3 months of being tired she's used to it :o

Since When?

Troll Alert on Lindsay's comeback!

Going back to the topic:
I Think it depends on Lindsay, wether she wants to fight it out or just give away the 3rd match comeback when it comes to tight situation.

I still go with Lindsay. I dont think her serve would be that rusty cuz she served 9 aces to Danilidou. Also JJ serve is piece of cake but if Lindsay's return timing could still be off, There you have a tight match.

Otherwise if Lindsay is not even rusty anymore, even with poor movement, she will win in 2 sets. Her serve and return is good enough to beat JJ.

Jelena SHOULD win but just in case Lindsay's serve is on & her return is on, she COULD win. Jankovic hates somebody who hits it hard & accurate. The problem is that Lindsay is not in match shape so she will probably get tired - so serve, return & strokes won't be as effective.

CJ07
Sep 14th, 2007, 04:03 AM
Lindsay is a bad match-up for Jankovic. If she swings freely, she'll win.

lindsay has the kind of game that is a bad matchup for jelena. plus, she should kill jelena's serves. i'm actually gonna say lindsay in two :eek:

GrandSlam05

Here is what Lindsay has to say about the JJ match:
"This is what I came back to do, to play some matches and try to play some good players, so I'm excited about it," said Davenport. "I don't know what to expect. The court's fast so that does help me but to be honest it probably is a bit soon to play somebody at the very top."

She sounds cautiously optimistic.

Sep 14th, 2007, 05:27 AM

"Lindsay should retire!" :(

Normally I would say Jelena but she wasn't that good against Dellacqua. I think it would be far too soon for Lindsay to score a Top 3 win this early in her comeback though. But then again I didn't even think she would make it past Daniilidou, so she has surpassed my expectations for sure. I hope it's competitive no matter what happens.
