All with the exception of Clijsters went onto win the final. In other words, they were in red hot form.

I can't see Dechy beating Lindsay.

You saw Dechy beating Schiavone, Myskina and Schnyder? May I call you? I'd like to know if my next job will bring me a great boost in my career?

Nathalie Dechy is far too underrated on this board. She is not spectacular, she doesn't have a huge shot that makes everyone tremble in her wake, but she is consistently good and can hit a lot of winners (as demonstrated in the Schnyder match) and will be dangerous if Lindsay isn't 100%.

Give her a break.

Lindsay will win, but it will be closer than expected.

They haven't been consecutive GS SFs - but the last 6 GS SFs she's reached she has lost (as GoDomique said) 5/6 times.

Also when she lost in the QF last year to JHH - she then went on to win the championship - so she does have a habit of losing to the eventual winner

Here's hoping today isn't the case and she actually reaches the final

Lindsay should win 6-1 7-5. The first set is going to be really ugly.
