I am really confused. i don't know why suddenly Davenport doesn't get seeded for big tournaments. And then she faces seles in the first round- that is ridiculous.
Who will win, do you think. Davenport has a really good record against monica but she has lost to people who she normally beats:
Chanda
Maggie
Patty

They both also have injuries. i don't know what to expect. :(

Lindsay had an 'injury-protected ranking' because she was out more than six months. That has now run out, so she's seeded by her ranking points now like everyone else.

I really think it's going to be a fifty/fifty kind of thing. I would give a very slight edge to Davenport because she is younger and tecnically still at her peak, but Monica can still kick butt when she puts her mind on it, but she strugles against big power hitters (US Open Venus/Seles anyone remember??)

Anyway, does anybody understand the rankings this week? It looks like the points that players earned last year in Munich have already been taken off before they had the chance to defend them. Serena is now only about 700 points away from Venus, instead of 1000. Is there a different rule for the Championship points?

Just wondering....

the ranks go on week to week basis not tournament to tournament basis i think... maybe this explains why the points came off a week early.

Go Monica :)

Thanks for the explanation of Davenport's seeding. I was wondering about this as well.

I'll go with Lindsay

7-6, 6-4

What a tough 1st match for both, I think it will be a long match.

Lindsay cannot use her protected ranking in the Race Championship, even if when she wouldn't have used them yet in the last tournaments. She is ranked out of the top ten right now. And she will play with the n#5 player in the world.

I hope Monica beat her ass down like she stole something. Lindsay's best days are far behind her and she has no chance of winning anything anymore. Even if Monica lose to her, she wont make it pass the next round. Linds needs to reconsider her tennis career. Maybe she should stop now and coach...?

Lindsay's best days are not over yet!!! look at how well she has coped with the tourneys just after her surgery.... although she wasn't able to close out matches she can still do better coz she just returned from her surgery... she needs more practice and mental training.....

I'll go with Lindsay to win the 1st round...... and she'll give her best against venus/schynder in the quarters!!!!

Go LINDSAY!!! :D :bounce: :D:bounce: :D :bounce: :D

I will proove you wrong when Lindsay wins.
These are some reasons why probably Lindsay should win, and I really have faith on her so I believe she WILL win:

- Lindsay likes playing more on indoors, Monica does not.
- She has played a solid indoor season and has made it to two finals.
- Monica has been injured for a long time, maybe she'll be rusty.
- Lindsay's head-to-head againt Monica is 8-2, she has a mental edge.

Besides Lindsay wants to take revenge from last year's final...
I really like Monica, wish this match wouldn't have happened in the first round, but.... hope they can both make a good match out of it and play really well.

If Lindsay's best days are over, then what to say about Monica? In fact if Lindsay should retire, 99% of the tour had better do it too.

It was meant as a joke, or ? If not, you'll need a couple of sessions at the psychiatrist !

Dont worry freeztinker, You always fail to see everything!!!!
Now rest again and think of a more valid point for your arguments. that is if you buy a bit of brain recently.

For Sure Freethinker iŽll see you here again if Lindsay in fact beats Monica and then loses to Venus and youŽll say that Linds you retire.

DAvenport has a lot of credit to herself not having played 3 of 4 Grand Slams in the year, she still is just out of the top ten, that is just pretty amazing to me. If she stays fit, she can get into the top ten by the end of next yearŽs Australian Open. Go Lindsay!!

I really like them both and of zourse as a Monica fan, I hope Monica will win. But honestly I doubt it: she did not play for a couple of weeks and wasn't in great form before...Lindsay on the other hand is playing some really good tennis. Anyway, as long as it is going to be a high quality match, I am happy, may the best woman win! :)

Go Monica!
Go Lindsay!
