Lindsay is so lucky :fiery:

Amelie, you need to get some echinacea (sp)

Mar 12th, 2003, 08:27 PM
I just hope they don't boo Lindsay in her next match. I smell a rat. This is like their second match-up since Aostralia 99....Did anyone think of that?.....
Amelie probably didn't want that pre-match hype stuff that goes on with the rehashing of OZ99.....I think that is why she withdrew.

Mar 12th, 2003, 08:36 PM
No one thought of it because they've actually played quite a few times since Oz '99.

Get well, Momo (and good luck to Lins)

Momo :sad:
And now Eurosport shows boxing instead of tennis :fiery:

Mar 12th, 2003, 08:51 PM
UGH! Lindsay in another final by beating no one big! Grrr... She is indeed lucky.

Mar 12th, 2003, 08:58 PM
Lindsay made the semi not the final.

Good luck to her!

Get well soon Momo and I'll see you in Miami!

Mar 12th, 2003, 09:33 PM
That sucks..:(

Mar 12th, 2003, 09:36 PM
in all seriousness, I wish they had plaeyed cos I think it'll settle the ranking issue and also Lindsay and Amelie need that kind of play going into Miami....Oh well leave it up to IW....with the withdraws...
I bout gave up on this tournament. One good wta match actually one and a half....Hantuchova/Coetzer; Davenport/bovina;Rubin/Sugiyama.....what?...a week into the tourney to finally get some coverage....now tonight they are coming on at 1130pm-3am...be for real...ESPN and IW doesn't have the necessary committment skills when it come to US tennis.

Mar 12th, 2003, 09:41 PM
Aww, poor Momo :sad: Get wel soon!

Mar 12th, 2003, 09:49 PM
Amelie is so unreliable.. I thinks he should retire already.. for such a strong looking woman..she is always pulling up lame..

Mar 12th, 2003, 09:50 PM
Owww that's so sad for Momo... get well soon! :D

She had made her return to the competition at the beginning of February with the tournament of Paris where she had been inclined finally vis-a-vis American Serena Williams.

The next tournament registered with the program of Mauresmo is Masters Series in Miami the next week.

If she got that flu I've had for the past 3 weeks...I bet she's completely put out...there is a very nasty bug flying about here in California!! I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy!

So Linds cruises to the next round...
