Wow! I was totally shocked when I saw the draw! Lindsay Davenport was given a 3rd seed, behind Kim and Justine, the numbers 1 and 2 respectively. Venus Williams is the 4th seeded player.

This is interesting!

If Lindsay can hold court, she will probably get JHH in the semis; and Venus will have Kim. Lindsay has to believe that she has the overall game to easily defeat JHH on hardcourt. Plus, she will definately have the fan support.

The most interesting factour is she DOES NOT have to play a Williams in order to make it to a final. With Serena being out, and Venus being ranked number 4, Lindsay, for the first time in five years, could possibly have an Open without facing a WS! Wow! Incredible!

I say the Davenport team is wiping its eyebrows now.

I wonder if she's already made out her $1,000,000 bank deposit slip!??????/


One ponders.....!

I hope that Lindsay does win the USO, but she does have a mental block where Kim is concerned and Justine is playing amazing tennis, also Amilie is a huge threat, although she does a good record against Jen so she doesn;t worry me, but it will be interesting to see who she draws.

You have to wait for the draw to come out. She has just as equal chance to meet Kim in the SF, and if that is the case, Davey can pack her bags to go home, because her Open will be OVER.

Good thing she doesn't have to play Kim Clijsters before the Final, what with having lost 6 of her last 7 against Kim. Oh wait, maybe she will have to.

Yep better pray for NO KIM CLIJSTERS for Lindsay, ´cause Kim OWNS, no ENSLAVES Lindsay these days!! Although Justine´s no slouch anymore either! what people forget of the Oz match was that Justine could easily have won in straights.....

One things for sure- Lindsay Davenport is not winning the US Open... so it doesn't matter what she's seeded. I don't know who will win :eek: but I will bet a huge sum that she ain't winning- sorry Lindz fans...and btw, I don't think Venus is winning it either ;)

In the words of the joker, after he saw Vickie Vail: "stop the press"!

Davenport's got to his Open in the bag! She's only allowed Kim to win those smaller tournaments, so that kim would have a committed since of superioty. Little did she know that she was being set up!

I think you may be jumping the gun a bit. The draw isn't even out and the seeds follow the rankings, so obviously Lindsay would be seeded 3rd. You have to remember that she is injured and it could flare up any time, also Justine and Kim are playing much better than her and the last time they played the Belgians beat her. It's all about how you play now in tennis. Really Lindsay will be lucky to make the semis in my opinion.

[email protected] poster(s) who can't let go of the notion that draws and seedings are controlled by some all-seeing, all-knowing tournament official whose mind these posters have the ability to read :lol:

Repeat after me:
Seeds go by ranking
Draws go by chance
Seeds go by ranking
Draws go by chance
Seeds go by ranking...

I think that Lindsay has a good chance of making the final if she's in Justine's half of the draw.

Granted Justine won their last match, but it was very close and even though Justine is a better player now, I think that Lindsay has a better, in fact, still a reasonable chance of defeating her.

GO LINDSAY :D.

The sad thing is, if Lindsay wins the US Open, I'd be willing to bet dollars to doughnuts that she'd retire:sad: ...
