ok, well, unfortunately (and maybe this is my pessimism or just my fantacism about lindsay) i doubt anna's going places this tournament. yeah, patty's another clay player who, unlike maggie, is not great on carpet, but then we see lindsay looming in the second round. renowned (until quite possibly last week, or for some of us, still) as one of the best indoors players right now, lindsay is not on par, but is close to getting there. i can definitely see anna getting by schnyder. but barely. not to be cruel, but anna's best surface is
clay. in order, that'd be clay, clay, clay, then hardcourt. forget grass and indoors - the prime opposittes of clay. expect anna to get to round 2, but if hardcourt fed cup was any indication, don't be surprised if she falls in round 2.

im so sorry anna - i hate when by two biggest favorites play again each other. i won't root for either of you i promise :D

good luck anna :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

hi everyone :wavey: (sorry im late ;) )

spank@ Mikey :kiss: j/k

I looked for this before I went to work and thought you were out of town.;) I still love you. :D

Well done for Anna to have beaten Patty Schnyder. Was worried about this one because Patty can win when she is really on.

Like you Mike, Lindsay is a big fav of mine too so this will be rough thinking of them playing each other. :sad:

King Aaron Oct 8th, 2002 08:14 AM

I almost thought you forgot!

Good luck Anna against Lindsay :D

Mikey Oct 8th, 2002 01:48 PM

omg - im so excited :D anna gets a huge win over schnyder. forget who she was playing, she won on carpet - that's so great :D

good luck against lindsay anna - whoever wins i will most certainly cheer on to win the title :bounce: :bounce:

:wavey: @ alon, kerry, aaron, and tf-mtl (if you keep coming, we'd like a name so we can wave to you :D - and we hope you do! the more the merrier :) )

Irish Oct 9th, 2002 12:05 AM

It's okay Mikey. I only tease the people I like. :kiss:

So impressed with Anna's victory. I think the last time she played Lindsay was during Fed Cup. Too bad they are both favs of ours and will have to be sad for one of them. The pic of them at the net after the match was priceless. Anna looked like a small child next to Lindsay. :)

Good luck Anna!!!!!! :bounce:

King Aaron Oct 9th, 2002 07:57 AM

:wavey: !!!! Yeah, it's wonderful Anna won on carpet!

Good luck today Anna!!! She's playing on Court 1!!! :kiss:

Mikey Oct 10th, 2002 12:49 AM


well, in an unhappy but unsurprising day, anna lost. it was such a shame b/c i couldn't even root for her. i would NEVER root against her, but i couldn't go for anyone.

don't worry about it anna - shake it off. you did extremely well if you consider the surface (7 game off lindsay! more than fed cup on hard :D ). good luck in your next tournament :wavey: :)

King Aaron Oct 10th, 2002 11:04 AM

Yeah, I'm really proud of Anna. She's done well considering her record on the surface. Good luck next week Anna! :bounce:

Tennisfan-Mtl Oct 10th, 2002 11:06 AM

Anna :( Too bad especially considering you were leading 3-0 in the 1st set...

King Aaron Oct 10th, 2002 11:14 AM

:eek: She was?! Oh!
