Joaco, on top of that, she hit 35 winners! No matter how many unforced errors, that is a great stat! Reminiscent of her 50+ winners against Capriati at Indian Wells...man I love Lindsay

Krasnoroutskaya’s Rally Falls Short

Late-arriving fans for Thursday’s night session match on Stadium Court may have missed the first set of Lindsay Davenport’s 6-0, 7-6 (2) third-round victory at the Acura Classic.

Davenport breezed through the first set in 14 minutes as fans were still driving into the parking lot at the La Costa Resort and Spa. The Russian managed to win five points in the set.

In the second set, Krasnoroutskaya fell behind 3-1, but slowly began to find the range on her shots and rallied to get back on serve and take a 4-3 lead.

Davenport served to stay in the match at 5-6 and held serve to force a tiebreaker.
Krasnoroutskaya won the first point of the tiebreak, but Davenport came back to win six points in a row and put the match away on her second match point.

Davenport finished the match with a total of 35 winners.

Davenport Powers Her Way to Semifinals

Fourth-seeded Lindsay Davenport advanced to her fifth career Acura Classic semifinal as she powered her way past fellow American Chanda Rubin, 6-3, 6-3, on Stadium Court at the La Costa Resort and Spa.

Rubin used a service break in the second game to jump out to a 3-1 lead in the first set, but Davenport won a long deuce game to get back on serve and went on to win nine of the next 10 games.

At 5-3 in the second set, Davenport easily served out the game at love to win the match in one-hour and 14 minutes.

_______________________________

I have put in bold another point that suggests that Lindsay's serve is back to it's usual reliable self! Even thought she was down a break she was able to stay focused and serve well for the rest of the match. Also, she was able to pull through a long though game! These are all great signs of how Lindsay is doing. What I do find interesting is that before this match both Lindsay and Chanda had the same win/loss record for the year!? :eek: Lindsay has the better record now (34-10 to Chanda's 33-11) :p

We don't know for another few hours who Lindsay will face )either Kim or Lisa). Anyhow, here are the H2H records vs. both players (curtesy of the Magic Lindsay site :angel: ):

KIM

2000 US Open Hard R64 Lindsay Davenport 4-6 6-2 6-2
2000 Fed Cup Carpet SF Lindsay Davenport 7-6 4-6 6-3
2001 Australian Open R16 Lindsay Davenport 6-4 6-0
2001 Wimbledon Grass QF LIndsay Davenport 6-1 6-2
2001 Stanford Hard F Clijsters 6-4 6-7 6-1
2001 Sanex Championships Carpet SF Lindsay Davenport 1-6 6-3 7-6
2002 Stanford Hard Court SF Clijsters 4-6 6-4 6-2
2002 Filderstadt Carpet QF Kim Clijsters 4-6 6-3 6-4
2002 Zurich QF Carpet Lindsay Davenport 6-3 7-6
2003 Sidney Hard F Kim Clijsters 6-4 6-3
2003 Indian Wells Hard F Kim Clijsters 6-3 7-5

LINDSAY DAVENPORT LEADS : 6-5

It's close, with Kim winning four of the last five :eek: I think Lindsay is due to balance that up a little and expand her H2H lead :)

I can't seem to find any H2H records for Lisa-Lindsay. If there is anyone who can help me out on that. Bye for now,
-Rachel :wavey:

Clijsters Advances to Acura Classic Singles Final

Second-seeded Kim Clijsters of Belgium continued her domination this week at the Acura Classic as she eliminated fifth-seeded Lindsay Davenport, 6-3, 6-3 in a semifinal match on Stadium Court.

With her victory, the Belgian advances to her first career Acura Classic singles final.

Clijsters began the match on a strong note as she lost only three points in her first three service games. She broke Davenport to take a 4-2 lead and went on to serve out the first set in 31 minutes.

Despite two double faults, Davenport held serve to open the second set, but ended up falling behind 3-1 when she lost serve in the third game.

The American did break Clijsters for the only time in the match to tie the second set at 3-3, but Clijsters would sweep the last three games as she broke Davenport twice.

Serving to stay in the match at 5-3, Davenport fell behind 40-0, but rallied to take the game to deuce.

On her third match point, Clijsters won the match when Davenport netted a forehand.

“Although I’ve been playing a lot of tennis in singles as well as doubles, I’m still feeling very fit out there and I’m still enjoying it,” said Clijsters, who was scheduled to play an afternoon semifinal doubles match with Japan’s Ai Sugiyama.

Clijsters won all three of her previous matches this week at the La Costa Resort and Spa in under an hour. Her victory over Davenport was no different as she converted on four of 15 break points to win in 59 minutes.

“I was probably going for a bit too much.” Davenport said, “If she gets control of the rally, it’s all over. When it’s close, she plays the points tough.”

Davenport admitted that she was not at her best against Clijsters. “I didn’t have my A game.” she said. “I’m disappointed, I wish I could have played better today.”

Davenport committed six double faults and a total of 34 unforced errors in the match.

Clijsters advances to the final of the 2003 Acura Classic. She will face the winner of the Justine Henin-Hardenne / Svetlana Kuznetsova match.
Clijsters is now tied with Davenport in career head-to-head meetings. Each player has six victories. Clijsters has won five of the last six meetings.
Clijsters is attempting to win her 16th career WTA Tour singles title.
Clijsters’ 2003 match record improves to 61-7.
Clijsters is playing in her third career Acura Classic.
Clijsters is ranked second in the world.
Davenport is ranked fifth in the world.
Davenport was making her eighth Acura Classic appearance.
Davenport’s 2003 match record is now 34-11.

Sorry Lindsay lost against Kim. I have the match taped but I have not watched it yet, I am too disappointed and also at the loss in the doubles too. I surely must be Lindsay's time for a title soon.

Go Lindsay :worship:
