Lindsay will be top twenty by the end of the year.



If not higher. Seriously, I get that feeling that she still has a slam or two in her, and her baby may be all the inspiration she needs

Serena. Simona. Ana. Petra. Venus.
Clijsters, Henin, Dementieva, Davenport.

She has to play at least four events to be in the top twenty before 2008.

Re: Lindsay will be top twenty by the end of the year.

So far Lindsay has played exactly ONE singles match since her comeback. Can we please wait with these kind of threads until she actually has played some more? Thanks

No, Lindsay won't be near the top 20 unless she plays a very heavy schedule and does incredibly well. And to my knowledge she's only playing Bali and Beijing this fall.

Re: Lindsay will be top twenty by the end of the year.

It's funny that Davenport isn't playing in Europe considering she has one of most imposing indoor records on tour. Although obviously the demands of being mother have to considered.

She easily could be back in the top 50 or higher by years end if she played a full schedule. As has been said though let's not get ahead of our ourselves - it's just one match.

Re: Lindsay will be top twenty by the end of the year.

yea i think people are getting a litle ahead of themselves.. Lindsay needs the time to spend with her baby and to be able to take care of herself.. she will take a few months to get match fit and re-adjust back to the tour.. that said if she was to do very well in both Bali and Beijing i wouldnt be suprised if she would add a few european stops to her tour

Venus Williams
Sammy Stosur
Ana Ivanovic
Kimmy Clijsters
Martina Hingis
Jarmila Groth
Sharapova Dokic Wozniacki Delaqua Molik Kirilenko Dementieva Na Dani Kvitova

Re: Lindsay will be top twenty by the end of the year.

I totally agree and just now realized she's only playing two tournies and not going over to europe not a big surprise; she's never loved europe.

Given this she's surely not going to finish inside the top 50 even if she wins both tournies she has committed to play, I haven't done the math so I am not totally sure; now given some mathematical intuition these two tournies won't suffice her a ranking inside the top 50 at least that's my belief on intuition and logic.

Nevertheless, game wise she's top 35 and quality wise top 25 even now. Those ground strokes will always be legendary and her timing unsurpassed.

"Ability may get you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there" Unknown ???

Hoping to see great tennis from Lindsay Davenport, Monica Seles, Mary Pierce, Amelie Mauresmo, Elena Dementieva, Jelena Jankovic and Ana Ivanovic. Venus's backhand rocks!!!!!!!!!

Hingis will always sparkle in my eyes because
"No one plays like Hingis – no one else could." as Carillo wrote.

I suppose her main goal is to enjoy herself on court and in the competition and hasn't got many goals ranking wise no?

That's not totally true though. She always liked the venues at Filderstadt and Zurich, but it's eventually both cities will not have events.

Re: Lindsay will be top twenty by the end of the year.

Thinking of it this way, it's kind of funny to think that someone can make a comeback AFTER all slams have been completed, and still have a chance to be top 20 for end of year. I'm really happy Lindsay is back, though

The only way Lindsay can get back into Top-20 is winning Bali, Beijing, Moscow and Zurich. If she managed to do it she would definitely deserve her place in Top-20 despite not competing at the Slams.
