Lindsey is in my opinion the huge favourite. Even though its not good that she beats everybody so easily after being out for more than a year its niced to have her back. Tamira played pretty well so far, anyway I say Lindsey easily like 63 63.

2001 Sydney: Davenport 63 63
2001 San Diego: Davenport 61 75
2003 Los Angeles: Davenport 61 61

Lindsey vs Babsi Paulus 4-0
1996 Strasbourg: Davenport 63 76
1996 Chase Championships: Davenport 63 62
1997 Hilton Head: davenport 62 64
1998 Amelia Island: Davenport 75 64

Lindsey vs Beate Reinstadler 1-0
1993 VS of Florida: Davenport 63 61

Lindsey vs Melanie Schnell 1-0
1996 Wimbledon: Davenport 64 61

Lindsey vs Karin Kschwendt 1-0

If Lindsay is healthy, she should win in two. But I'm a little concerned after yesterday.

Lindsay will win, but not easily.

Tamira will be better than all those other Austrian players mentioned in the first post.

The only player who could beat Lindsay in Tier III/IV is Claudine Schaul.

I think that Lindsay will win tonight ... :sad:

Hopefully Tamira proves me wrong :kiss:

I'm happy that Tamira can play against Lindsay. It's nice to have her back on tour :worship:

Lindsay is the favourite and i expect her to win but i wouldn't be surprised if Tamira would win this match!

I'm just proud Tamira made it to her second semifinal. The fact she failed to make a single quarterfinal in 2007 was disappointing, but she did make several fourth and third rounds. She only played one sub-TII event in 2007 though, that's probably why. And she made it to the top 35 regardless. :worship:

Lindsay in two or three, but I just want a great match. Those two backhands battling it out. :hearts:

Hm, I predict Davenport like 6-2,4-6,6-3.

Wouldn't be too surprised if Paszek wins.

Although I think, that Lindsay will win: Your prediction gives me hope, you were so wrong with the last one ;)

Lindsay. She'll be excited to play an opponent who doesn't hit fluff balls. I think the hard strokes will be easier for her to generate power.

6-4 6-3

hmmmm. this is the first real big hitter tamira's gone up against in this tournament.

dav has experience, a serve and great groundstrokes.

tamira has a great backhand and guts/will, her best quality (and why i like her). she needs to hold serve.

i give the edge to dav but i also would not be surprised if tamira won, the whole tournament. dav could blow her off the court though with all of the power.

i hope planetstreamtv will be able to handle all the web traffic. it crashed yesterday and i couldn't finish watching paszek's match.

If Lindsay plays anywhere near her potential she will (in my humble opinion) beat Paszek. Paszek's serve, which is a medium pace slice that mostly goes to the right-hander's forehand, will allow Lindsay to dictate too many points on her serve, and Lindsay will be mostly in charge of her own serve as well. Lindsay serving well is key- if she places her approx 100mph serve in the corners she won't get broken often at all. And although Tamira has talent, she hasn't been hitting as hard as she could recently, which I think is a mistake, since although it prevents you missing, it also stops you from hitting your best shots and rising to the top echelon (unless you play a unique style like Chang, or Arantxa, or Lleyton). Maybe she'll remember how to play at a higher level against Lindsay though. If she doesn't, this could be over quickly. Of course we can't really predict the future, but we can try right? We'll see in a few hours.:)
