Lindsay practiced today in Auckland! What is this racket? :scratch:

She is looking really good! I hope she's playing well and all that. It's good that she has this kind of 'i'm still in the middle of my season' mindset so she can keep her momentum from Quebec City going through to this year.

Good luck Lindsay!:bounce:

Yay she's in Auckland! :bounce:
I have no idea what racket that is either. It doesn't look, to me, much different than the ones she's always used.

Good luck, Linds! :hug:

Wow when Lindsay said she's been workout over the off season she wasn't kidding. She look super fit. Looking forward to following her matches in Auckland and then watching her in Melbourne.

Good luck Lindsay :bounce:

That racquet looks like a K-Tour, but it's most likely a paintjob. I know she said she was going to experiment with the new technology over the off season and possibly make a switch, I always thought that was unlikely, given she's in the last stages of her career.

On a side note, I'm not loving the hair - she needs to grow it again :p

If main draw comes out at 11.30am (auckland time) it'll be on WTA or the tournament's page around 16pm? Am I right?

Lindsay has lost a lot of weight since returning. Especially in her face. You could barely see her eyes in Bali!

This Australian season could be very successful! :D

Claudine Schaul bagelled Lindsay from what I remember as well. That match was an embarassment but if I remember right that was when her knee started bothering her again and she was doubting her self a lot. Hence the whole "I don't think I'll be back next year" crap a few weeks later at Wimbledon.

Barring any sort of disaster, Lindsay *should* win this title. ;)

There is a slight difference in the surface the Schaul match was played on clay Lindsay's worst surface Auckland is played on a hardcourt surface Lindsay's best surface. As I've said before this is Lindsay's tournament to win or lose and Jagger seems to be her good luck charm and he's with her.

She has a good game but it's inconsistent and if they do play in Auckland Lindsay does everything that little bit better and their poles apart in experience and something tells me if they play that will count for alot.

Lindsay should be able to handle Michaella without too many problems.

Hasn't Auckland switched to Plexicushion, btw? From the pictures I've seen, the courts are now blue (like the Australian Open ones will be), which would suggest to me that they have changed :shrug:

Exactly, they met two times and Lindsay won both matches in 3 sets. Kirilenko isn't playing too well recently though.

Kirilenko could take a set, but again I really can't see Linds losing to her. She played really well this summer though so I do expect a tough match there.

Lindsay is going to have a hard time beating most players in the top ten, minus some players whose game plan fits right into Lindsay's attack zone, like Ivanovic, or players who blow, like Bartoli.

A serena 07 type draw would be good. Low, crappy seed, unseeded, bit of a test, up through the gears.

Petrova isn't a top player anymore, though.

Gotta hope for Bartoli.

MH0861
Dec 29th, 2007, 10:13 PM
I'd hope for Chakvetadze really. :shrug: Bartoli probably won't be a Top 8 seed, so I think Anna C is the next best bet.

Dec 29th, 2007, 10:34 PM
I'd hope for Chakvetadze really. :shrug: Bartoli probably won't be a Top 8 seed, so I think Anna C is the next best bet.
She's a cheap Hingis who folds under pressure. Could probably take Lindsay to three, though. 3R would be fine with her.

Or, get Hingis' AO 2006 draw. Nobody until QF, then #2 seed. Then #3.

I'd favor Lindsay against those current players, especially in the later stages of a slam (!).

Lindsay should win Auckland. Only few players in the draw could give her some trouble.

Then in Melbourne it could be hard. We really can't predict who she'll draw in the 1st round. We can't exclude Justine as Lindsay's 1st round opponent in Aussie Open - remember that in 2003, 2004, 2006 JHH was Lindsay's nemessis.

Hingis was drawn to face Pierce in the third round, but Mary surprisingly lost :o

You have to start somewhere and let's be thankful that Lindsay didn't draw a seed in the first round. Lindsay is only going to get better with more matches and I would say by the scoreline there was some rust there too. I look forward to her next match.

I will try the live stream for Lindsay second round as I will have my computer back. The computer i borrowed was too slow for live steaming.

That match was infuriating. She's cruising, hitting to the Molik backhand, making her look out of her depth, loses momentum, scrapes the first... and don't get my started on *4-5 in the second. And then, Molik played well. I like the last game, a couple of good net rushes.

Great match practice by far ;)
Hope Lindsay wil be fresh for Paszek who is a dangerous player. It could easily be a 3set thriller imho. However, if the serve clicks it could be another routine win over a young and up-coming player.
The patch on her arm is worrying...she had some trouble with it back in 2004 and 2006...can't wait for the semis, cause Tamira is able to move Lindsay, or win points outright. Actually this match should show exactly how far away from her solid disposition Lindsay is. :)

Hey All. Its been ages since i posted a message, but i have been following every moment of Lindsay's return, and am just delighted to see her playing so well, and ready to collect title no 3 since her return to tennis. And i can't wait to see her in Melbourne. My trip to the Open will now be ultra special. I'm just grinning from ear to ear, and am counting down the days. Just a piece of Lindsay trivia, but has anyone else noticed that since her return, Lindsay now plays with her wedding ring on. She never used to. It used to be the first thing she would put on, together with a bracelet after she won a match, but i've noticed in all the photos since she has returned, that she is now wearing it. I think its great. I wonder why the change. Anyway, good luck in the final Lindsay and see you and jagger in Melbourne.
