Why is Lindsay Davenport not playing any of the grass tune-ups?

Is she going to ask for a wildcard anywhere or is she intending on walking into a Grand Slam having not played a match in 3 1/2 months?...

More time to rest the back, probably hoping she has some good first round matches where she'll get to hit a lot of balls to find a rythm

Well Mary Joe said that the "back was getting better very, very, very fast" meaning she just used it as an excuse to not play the claycourt season.

Didn't Mary Joe also say that she was "50/50" for Wimbledon ?

I think Lindsay will be just fine without playing a tuneup.

There's still time for her to accept a wildcard for Eastbourne, although if she's going to do that then I'd expect a statement no later than the weekend...

Still, in 2000 Venus was out for a long period and she won, so there's hope for Linds

She hasn't in years, but she wasn't out since March then, either.

How many people have won a slam without playing a warmup? Obviously Venus and Serena have done it. How many others have? I'd assume Wimbledon or the Aussie would be the most likely where players have skipped warmups to play.

RIDE OR DIE! Down for Venus Williams

Lindsay won Eastbourne on one occasion but normally comes into Wimbledon without playing a warm up event. Like the Daviator, Lindsay is my favourite player but the prospect of her coming into Wimbledon so short of match practice is a worry.

The most important thing is that her back is on the mend and she will kick some serious butt during the US hardcourt season.

As an aside, Mary Jo Fernandez isn't a kiss ass. I've sat near her a few times at tournaments and I confess that I've overheard some of her conversations. It's patently obvious that she is very intelligent and articulate with a mind of her own.She has also been a friend of Lindsay's for over a decade so she is privy to lots of inside information.

Go Lindsay!!!!!

Lindsay will be just fine coming in cold...at least until the semi-finals.
