Davenport To Play In 2007

Direct quote from google news, think the original source was the Philadelphia Enquirer.

Lindsay Davenport, 30, told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel she does not plan to retire. Davenport said she would play in only seven or eight tournaments in 2007, including three of the four Grand Slams.

Think we can safely assume she has no aspirations of capturing the French open then...

True but really why should she enter. She has nothing to prove, she's already headed for the hall of fame.

Her schedule will be something like this. Don't forget other times Lindsay has felt like retiring she has gone on a tear and dominated!

Australian Open
Tokyo
Indian Wells
Wimbledon
Stanford
Los Angeles
US Open
Zurich

What the WTA did was dumb but it wasn't totally their fault. Lindsay was out of 5 months with a back injury which didn't help and the lack of wild cards on her return was another problem. But I'm glad she playing next year as a part time Lindsay is better than a retired Lindsay and the motivation is still there that's great.

plus the fact that she like we know her chances of winning the tournament are slim, as an established player shes already exclaimed that its the majors shes chasing, why put so much strain on her body if her efforts wont pay off.

she struggles against henin on hard courts these days let alone clay.
