I have a bit of the article that I typed up a while ago with the intension of posting it - I never got to finish it off, although I hope to one day
Here is that part that you're all reffering to though:
LINDSAY DAVENPORT has a tendency to swear. Not just the odd curse when she stubs her toe or bangs her head, but full on four-letter expletives that turn the air blue and shock people.
“I used to swear a lot more than I do now,” she tells ACE. “My dad has a filthy mouth and I grew up with it. I have the foulest mouth. I used to swear incessantly. It’s terrible. The slightest thing went wrong and I’m like, ‘S***’. But I definitely want to stop. I’d say that over the last few years I’ve gotten a lot better. I’ve started to cure my habit. I think I admitted to swearing a lot so that I would force myself to stop.”
It’s all part of Lindsay’s contradictory personality. She has a reputation of being the nice-girl-next-door, the player everyone gets on with, the person who always has a kind word to say about everyone else. Yet scratch the surface and you can see that she has a mean streak in her.
“People say ‘Oh, you’re so nice’, she laughs. “Honestly, I can be a total bitch. When I’m playing I get so p****d off. On court, for sure, you have that mean streak in you. My birth sign is Gemini, which is the twins, or two different personalities. I definitely think I have that. The person that you see on court is definitely not the person you see off it.”
Off court she is almost always smiling and friendly, but you get the impression there’s a permanent warning sign around her neck that says ‘Don’t mess with me!’
