Ordinarily I would call this matchup on clay "too close to call," but looking at Lindsay's scorelines this week...I think you have to give the nod to her.

not many people would have given patty much of a chance to beat lindsay on indoors in zurich last year and we all know what happened then. i don't expect patty to win, but i know she can, and i feel that it will be a score like 6-0, 6-0 or maybe a little closer

last year in Zurich doesnt prove anything.Lindsay was totally out of the match,she wasnt focused at all,she was so lazy!!now everything is changed,she's playing great.Patty can play some good shots but at the end Lindsay will win.
Lindsay in 2,something like 6-4 6-2

oh yes she was so lazy that she beat clijsters and henin in the same tournament! give me a break. i don't think you can take too much from beating pratt on clay and lucky loser from qualifying weingartner. i don't doubt that lindsay is an amazing player, but lindsay lost in straight sets to serena in charlseton last week, and what did patty do the year before? oh that's right she beat serena and then no.1 capriati, which would lead me to believe she can do a little more than hit a few good shots!

nice job for Patty to go this far to stay in TOP 20
though........good luck with that......
btw, people know she is a streaky player,
and extremely inconsistent,
but give her some credits coz she
is one of the handful Tier I winner
