Nothing. She didn't play between Tokyo and Indian Wells in 2004.

wtf did she sign up for Qatar as well? I remember her choosing Dubai - it doesn't surprise me since they're near each other in terms of dates, etc and location *g* but I completely missed her committing to that one.

Lindsay could March away
Paul Malone
31jan05

THE Indian Wells tournament in March looms as a possible retirement date for Lindsay Davenport after she lost the women's singles final to Serena Williams on Saturday.

Williams' mother and coach Oracene Price said she had heard of rumoured retirement plans and felt Davenport's poor third-set performance in her 2-6 6-3 6-0 defeat had been because she knew retirement was imminent.


Davenport's friend Raquel Martin, a WTA Tour staffer, could not confirm rumours Davenport, 28, had identified the March tournament in her home state of California for her farewell before settling down with husband Jon Leach.

Price said: "She started to think too much maybe about this being her last lot of tournaments . . . that maybe it will be the end in March, I've heard. I don't know.

"I think she lost a bit of hope. Lindsay missed shots she would normally make, shots I've seen her make from the time she was in juniors. Sometimes when you lose it, it's hard to get it back."

Davenport is understood to have played her last Australian Open and, unless she makes sacrifices for a realistic chance at Wimbledon and the US Open, her last set in a major will be one in which she won eight points.

She did little to dampen speculation she would not play another Australian Open, telling the crowd at the presentations she hoped "to see you again".

Davenport, winner of the 2000 Australian Open, lost 10 points in a row after serving at 3-4, 40-0 in the second set, including two double-faults, and she blamed her demise on fatigue in her third consecutive three-set match.

"The fact you could win another grand slam goes through your mind the whole time and I knew I was playing well in the first set," Davenport said.

"But I don't think that was due to the fact I was close to winning. It wasn't like I was serving for the match and thought: 'This is it'.

"I felt like I was in control pretty much of the match until I had that horrible lapse. I made a few quick errors, and kind of opened the door for her. "The time-out (called by Williams after five games for back pain) helped in terms of getting her better. And as the match went on, her serve just got harder and better."

I actually had predicted last year that she would end it at Indian Wells when I heard she was coming to Australia that's what I called on again.

My prediction would be this:

If she wins IW she'll retire - if not then one of the other US tournaments, etc.

Then she'll finish the year (if the US team is successful) by guiding the team to victory in the Fed Cup

I truly believe that would be her biggest accomplishment, moreso than a GS win since it's been a few years since the US team has won the Fed Cup.

I think Fed Cup is highly overrated.

I believe Lindsay will play a full, uninterupted schedule in 2005.

K. That March rumor has been circulated by the Aus media for months now and has been nothing but pure speculation. In an interview given in December, Lindsay stated she had worked out a schedule through March, which was incorrectly twisted into meaning that she would retire in March.

She is not retiring in March. I would bet my house on it.

That's more like it

It would be sad if she does retire after Indian but I don't think she will. Maybe the watery eyes shared between Lindsay and Jon were that of realisation that Lindsay's retirement is imminant and that a year isn't all that long. Especially when you know you are going to end a big part of your life!

I try not to think about it too much, but I won't kid myself into believing that she'll be back next year - deep down, I know she won't and this is surely her final year.....like we say it's the "Unofficial TOP Lindsay Farewell Tour". If she doesn't cry over it before Wimby, we who are going should attempt to get a blubber from her

To a lot of people Fed Cup might be overrated - but for who take honour representing their country it isn't - same goes for Davis Cup

lol Kelly *g*
