Let's play "Remember when Davenport..."

Remember when Davenport beat Nathalie Dechy in the semis of Indian Wells '04, hitting three aces in a row from 3-4, 30-40 down in the 2nd, another three consecutive aces from 4-5, 15-30 down, more big serving from 5-6, 0-40 down, and then finishing off the match on her 10th ace in the tiebreak?

Let's keep this going.

You have some memory

Remember when Davenport nearly walked off the court at the YEC '05 cos she was tired of waiting for Maria to finish her celebrating?

Re: Let's play "Remember when Davenport..."

Let's remember when Lindsay lost 2 times in straight sets to Myskina at the end of 2004 after dominating their previous meetings!

Anastasia Myskina


Radwanska - S. Williams - V. Williams - Kerber

I just re-watched that Dechy match again recently, but it's one of my favorite Lindsay service patches ever.

I also love that moment of her not waiting for Sharapova to finish her dramatics. Stupid Maria who then tanked her next match in the round robin.

Re: Let's play "Remember when Davenport..."

Remember when Lindsay came back from a set down in the 2nd round of the Australian Open 2003 to beat the talented Iroda Tulyaganova 6-7, 6-4, 7-5.

In the second set she looked so pissed off she almost walked away from the match.

Her big groundies saved the day and she walked away with a win and a big uncharacteristic scream "YES!" at the end!

Мари́я Ю́рьевна Шара́пова​ , Јелена Јанковић, Venus Williams.

And the same in Hong Kong 2006.

Does anyone remember when Davenport, in the 2nd round of the '02 US Open against Petra Mandula, just sat down in her chair after the first rain drop and would not budge until the court was completely dry? She was the boss of that court, and not taking any risks after the knee surgery.

Re: Let's play "Remember when Davenport..."

Remember when Davenport lost to Sharapova at Wimbledon in 2004 and everyone thought she was as good as retired. It's funny because there were a lot of people on these boards who counted her out at that time. Only a few peeps could imagine her playing in another slam final. And an even smaller amount of people that could believe she could get to two slam finals. And not a single person that could believe it would happen twice in the same year. We all know she also went on to finish 2004 ranked number one. Then managed to do it again the following year. Just when you think she's no longer a major threat, she reminds you why she is!!
