It's not that she's a three set choker, it's that she tanks alot of three set matches.

andrew, this is a POSITIVE thread! :p

I don't think she is a choker in that sense of the word. Its just that if a player gets on top of her and is ahead she gets into a sulk and doesn't fight that much. Nothing to do with 3 setters.

They are all from 2001 or earlier = before her injury. Since then she has done nothing.
2003 Indian Wells: Davenport def. Capriati 6-4; 4-6; 6-4 in one of the best matches I have seen. Sadly, J-Cap lost:sad: :sad: :sad:

2003 Amelia Island: Davenport def. Capriati 6-2; 5-7; 6-3 not as good a match, but J-Cap STILL lost, and on clay:eek: .

That's because Lindsay has made Capriati her bitch.

Well, Jen is no top-player and Slam contender anymore, just like Lindsay.
Yes that would explain why both of them are ranked well inside the top 10 and have been for a significant amount of time. Oh and that would explain why Lindsay is ranked just inside the top 5. That would ALSO explain why Lindsay nearly reached the final at this years Wimbledon.

NEARLY getting to the final of Wimbledon would in my opinion make one a grand slam contender.
