How do you think both players will fare in their first encounter on clay?

I actually think Lindsay may have a chance, if she can hang with Serena in the long rallies, and mix up play. The key for me is Davenport's attitude. If she remains positive, she will challenge Serena.

I still say Serena will win, but Davenport's attitude and her ability to stay in rallies will determine how lopsided the score is.

I heard from friends who watched Davey's previous matches that her attitude is better right now coz she still stayed positive even though she lost her serve twice in a row.... go Linds!

after watching Lindsay struggle against Znoreva last night, I would say Lindsay has no chance against Serena.:devil:

granting that she didn't struggle, then for sure Serena would make her struggle in all departments of the game.:worship:

Lindsay will manage to get past Serena in three sets. Whoever wins, it will be a WONDERFUL match to see!

It would be a one-sided match and it's all according to Queen Serena.:devil:

whew... pretty glad I have BasicTennis ignored since he's here :angel: we all know how "UNBIASED" and "FAIR" s/he is .... :rolleyes:

I say Serena in three, although I would love for Lindsay to pull it out.

If Serena plays 70% it'll be over in 2 sets in the 6-3 6-4 area

if not, well, then we'll see

I think Davenport did't move very well.
On clay,it's very important to move well,Serena did it pretty well.
There are usually long points on clay,I think Lindsay can't afford the long long points.As a result,I think Serena will win easier here than on hardcourt.Maybe she will win in 2 easy sets.
