Who will win? This is a huge test for Venus. Especially since she's owned Lindsay the last 4 years.

With that said, I think Venus will win in 3 sets.

Who knows. My guess would be Venus in 3 also, but who knows. This thread is probably going to turn into a big bitchfest once a few key posters get in here.

This is one of the game's greatest rivalries. This will be their 23rd meeting. Lindsay owned Venus in their early days, now the reverse is true. This is much like the rivalry that Chris/Martina N. had.

This is year is so unpredictable. Davenport at her Wimbledon form would probably straight-set Williams at her Wimbledon form. It is not Wimbledon though.

Still you are as good as your last tournament. Davenport in two.

I agree that LD is in better form. I agree with YS with the outcome.

The reason why I see Venus winning in straight sets is that though it looked as if Lindsay didn't have a problem with Maria VK, there was something Maria was able to take advatage of and that is Lindsay's lack of movement. I don't know if she was still feeling the effects of the match she had with Mashona or it is age, but Venus could definitely take advantage of that. The one thing Lindsay can take advantage of and that is Venus' forehand, which wasn't good in the first set of Venus' match.

I think Davenport will win in straight sets. Lindsay has been looking very good. While Venus has been shaky on her serve and as usual, her forehand side. I can't see Venus winning unless Davemport has a bad day. This match is in Lindsay's hands. Ultimately it doesn't matter because I love both ladies, and I am overjoyed they will be playing again... ;)

Venus has yet to "upset" any top 5 players to justify her special seeding.
I do hope she can win this to prove that she belongs to the top 5.
