Davenport/Blake to defend Hopman Cup

Okay this would be the best indication yet that Lindsay may very well play on in 2005.

Scud, Molik for Hopman Cup
October 14, 2004

MARK PHILIPPOUSSIS will attempt to put aside a disastrous 2004 and get his flagging tennis career back on track when he partners Alicia Molik in January's Hopman Cup in Perth.

Philippoussis has replaced Lleyton Hewitt in the Australian side for the mixed teams event with Hewitt opting to start his 2005 season at the hardcourt tournament in hometown Adelaide.

Molik has risen to a career-high No.18 in the world and won a bronze medal at the Athens Olympics, but her Hopman Cup partner has slumped dramatically this year.

Philippoussis started the season ranked ninth in the world, but a spate of first round losses has seen him plummet to No.103.

The Victorian, who has lost in the first round in each of his last five tournaments, is hoping to kick-start the new season with a successful showing in Perth.

Russia's World No.9 Marat Safin and French Open champion Anastasia Myskina are the tournament's top seeds, with defending champions the US seeded second.

The American pairing of Lindsay Davenport and James Blake is back to defend its title, with the Slovak Republic and Argentina seeded third and fourth respectively.

Germany and Italy are also in the field, while France will meet the Netherlands in a playoff for the final place in the tournament. The official draw for the Hopman Cup will be made later today, with the tournament commencing January 1 at the Burswood Dome.

oh thanks for that - it's a good sign. Perhaps it's safe to say she'll be here for at least part of 2005! Go Lindsay!

I think this pretty much makes 2005 a definate for her, at least the first half.

I think she'll retire after Indian Wells / Amelia Island - if she doesn't then it'll be at the end of 2005

I don't expect anything, but I think if she wins a gran slam next year, and I sur that she can do it, she'll surely keep on playing until the YEC 2005.

Proud to be your fan Lindsay
Lindsay Davenport n1!!!

No competition for Lindsay in there, unless Molik plays extremely well. But who knows about Blake.

Looks like Lindsay will play a full 2005. I honestly don't see her retiring mid-year or after the US Open. The latter would make some sense but she was extremely against that idea this year and I think she likes the idea of ending her career Champs in LA, her backyard. I just hope she can play a smart schedule, stay healthy, and achieve her main goals remaining in tennis.

oh, great, something to look forward to early in the New Year. I reckon she will play on at least for part of the year. If things go well I think she may give Wimbledon and US Open another go. Not so sure about the French though, even though it is the only Grand Slam she has not won.
