Smile Awesome mom Davenport is 18-1 since coming back!

You have to congratulate Lindsay, no one expected this, not even herself! She just shows what a fantastic player she is, pure talent and knowledge of the game! It would be perfect if she didn´t lose to that Serbian player in Beijing last year ( the ball that player threw at/near Lindsay, 5-5 in the second set, threw Lindsay off and she lost those 2 games and the match, I bet she would won that set and the match, like she did in Bali against the same player, anyway...)
So, nice start in 2008 and this is a good sign for the season to come!

She's an amazing woman. An amazing example of the mother-athelete. So glad that she is back!!!

If you get hit by a ball and lose a match then you deserve to lose a match.
It's difficult to play a player in back-to-back weeks and win both matches anyway.

I expected this from Lindsay.
Her timing has always been the best. She's now the player who hits the flattest on tour, it is difficult to get under shots like that and then to control it.
Only a few players can do that and they're in the top 8 right now.

She's done very well but none of the players besides Jankovic have given her that much trouble before she left for 11 months so, it's really not a surprise.

When she starts beating the players that we all know she has issues with, then that's when I'll really be shocked.

"Everybody always said I didn't get that job because my wife is white. If you're not strong enough to look through that then you have the issue."

Re: Awesome mom Davenport is 18-1 since coming back!

This is really bad on the Wta I mean Lindsay is a great player but only 1 person has been able to beat her? Lindsay just had a baby for god's sake and shes a little bit overweight not to mention she took a year off from tennis.

but good for her but girls please get it together.

Although this girl beat Lindsay, don´t forget that Lindsay also beat her the week before! It isn´t bad for the WTA, it´s just Lindsay, who´s a great player!

oh my god. She was off tour for one year. Does that mean that anyone in the top 100 should beat her when she was no. 1 the year she left? Aye...

Agreed. This really isn't that surprising. Her results are comparable to those of pre "retirement." It is remarkable that she can compete at this level following a pregnancy, though. But, I wouldn't hold my breath for her to start beating Henin and the Williams'. Though, I am excited to see how she will hold up against them, and the rest of the top 10. While winning these small titles doesn't tell us that, I do think it was smart of her to test the waters in the lower Tiers before jumping right in.

But this (save the pregnancy) has been done before. Hingis and Seles come to mind...They both were very consistent after hiatus, but could never really make a dent against the cream of the crop--at least not when it mattered most...it still boggles my mind that Seles lost to ASV at the FO in 1998. She couldn't catch a break!

Re: Awesome mom Davenport is 18-1 since coming back!

I've given up trying to prove the doubters wrong. Lindsay is just too good. Justine, Serena, Venus, and now Lindsay have all come back from prolonged breaks and returned to the top afterwards.

Keep on keepin' on Lindsay.

Re: Awesome mom Davenport is 18-1 since coming back!

Good on Lindsay! Great to hear that she is back!
But she needs to play higher level tournament to compete more with top players.. Sure she can beat those weaker and lower level players easily but I really wanna see whats her true level at the moment when she plays players like Justine Henin, Serena Williams, Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova and S. Kuznetsova.
She needs to compete more on Tier 1 and 2 tournament and cut off her Tier 3 tourney because Its more enough for her to get her pace back and she shows all that she is belong to Top 20 now with no doubt.

I'm very happy for Lindsay, but I still want to see if she can hold all this straight victories once she plays big tournaments.
