Will Davenport and Hingis Rise back to #1 and 2 when they return???

I think they will definitely be back in the hunt. If Davenport stays healthy she get back there when she plays next winter/spring. If Hingis's surgery works out I think she will someday be #1 again.

What are your thoughts?

It's a definate possibility. 'Specially if they play the events next year that they've missed this year. Surefire way to gain points - since they'll not be defending those points.

Answer to the thread:

Not a chance.

Lindsay will be retired before she is 30 and Marti may struggle to stay in the top ten.

I dont think they will ever be 1 and 2 again.

I think they can regain the top 5 again though - LIndsay's knee injury may hurt her movement, but she isn't known for winning matches based on her court coverage anyhow - so I dont think it will kill her game.

Martina Hingis, on an off year stil does better than anyone not named Venus, Jenn, Serena, etc. So I think she will get into the top 5 again.

people like Tee Rexx are just wishful thinking.

They've been saying that Martina would fall out of the top ten for years now .

yep. it's only a matter of time till Lindsay is no. 1 again. and I have faith in Marti, too. she'll get back on the horse. she's a fighter.

It's too soon to aim for peace. Aim for better conflict management.

Lindsay is my girl

I agree with Becca. I think they can get back into the top 5, but it'll be tough for them to reach #1 and #2. If it does happen, I don't think it'll be for long.

I don't think it will happen.

Lindsay came back last year in a good shape. Probably she can do ir again this year, and gain more points in the begining of the next season, but she also has to defend all her titles this year.
Martina is a mistery yes, we don't know if she will be ok after the operation, and when will be she able to play again.

I think they can improve their ranking and stay in #4 to #7, but not to the top spot. Venus, Serena, Justine, Kim and Jennifer are the top 5 for a long time

SERENA WILLIAMS

Both at 1 and 2, I don't think so.

If I had to put my money on one of them to be number 1 again, I would bet on Lindsay. After all, she's struggling with an injury, while Martina is struggling with her game. She's less intimidating than Lindsay right now.

venus, jennifer and serena are surely tough contenders for the top spots.
but once lindsay and martina come back healthy, i'd definitely put them above kim and justine (as much as i like those two).

I think they will. They did it before, theres no reason why they couldnt do it again.

Men när natten är ljus - I ditt sjuttiotalshus
Och du är ånga, spår av ett moln
I en dröm om att fly till någonting nytt

Och du håller så hårt och när längtan blir svår
Så är jag din, din, din att ta med
Att ta ut, att ta in i någonting nytt

I think Lindsay can become number 1 again... she has the game to do it. Injury is putting her out.

With Martina, it is her game. Unless she fixes that, I don't see her getting to number 1 or 2.

It will be a long and hard way, but I think they can do it!

At the same time? Unlikely. Can lindsay make it to #1 and Martina to #2 at SOME point? Yes.

I won't be surprised if they can make it if they work hard. Anything can happen.

Hingis never thought Venus will be No1 till she retires... Only time will tell
