Lindsay to play in new Heaven

Just read a net article that says Lindsay has commited to the new haven tournement the week before the US Open.


(WTNH, Aug. 4, 2005) _ A huge commitment today for the Pilot Pen tennis tournament. Lindsay Davenport is coming back to New Haven.

Davenport will make her 6th appearance at the Pilot Pen, despite an injury to her back that forced her out of other tournaments earlier this year.

"I'm looking forward to returning to New Haven," Davenport said in a statement. "I've had so much success here and the fans have always been so supportive of me, it's one of my favorite tournaments to play."

Davenport is currently number one in women's tennis, with two titles to her name this year. She was also in the finals at Wimbledon.

She was in the finals in New Haven for four straight years, from 1999 to 2003.

Here is a thought is she playing it to get the number 1 ranking back I think she cares about it more than she lets on.

Hmmm... I don't think so. I think she's playing to get into a groove on this surface more than anything. I hope it doesn't aggravate her back though.

It's not shyness I have. It's just that I'm not one of those people who loves to open a newspaper of magazine and see myself all the time. I don't like that at all. I prefer to play my tennis which I love, and with which I've been blessed.

im not so sure that new Haven is a good idea....the problem lindsay has is that she can't play too much intebse tennis was consectutive amounts of time. I really think playing 3 weeks solid in a row, will be too much for her and could possibly hinder her chnace of the USO crown

Both in the wimby and oz open 2005 and the USO semi 2004 lindsay was playing floorable tennis, but the intensity of 7 matches in 2 weeks (plus doubles) brought on Tiredness that caused nagging injuries, which eventually saw her lose the possibility of 3 Gs's

I hope lindsay rests up till the US open and then plays her heart out for 2 solid weeks, fresh ad ready to go, I really think this is the way forward.....what are your thoughts?

i think corina has been having a rather sucessfull partnership with Patty so I really don't think that Lindsay will be playing doubles at the USO.

It was because she played a match everyday during USO 2004 and Aus Open 2005 that she lost steam towards the end. Don't think it has a lot to do with playing 3 weeks in a row.

I think playing New Haven is a good choice....a weak field means she's more likely to be able to find her groove and hopefully take a winning streak into USO - it always helps.

We'll see what she does....and although the WTA site doesn't list Lindsay as going to LA, Lindsay is still on the sites official list, but it does state that it's subject to change....

New Haven will be her only tournment before the US Open but I'm not sure if I want Lindsay to play it either as there is a chance she could reinjury herself and not play the US open at all. But on the upside I might get some sleep. Ah but who needs sleep when Lindsay playing every secind night.

I think Lindsay could decide well enough for herself, if she could play 3 weeks in a row without getting tired or weak. Last year she also played 3 weeks (Stanford, San Diego and Los Angeles) in a row and has won all three tournaments in perfect shape.
I think getting hurt again has nothing to do how long you are practising, just one false step on the court could be the end, no matter if it is the 1st day or the 16th day you play.

team D lost first round at wimby....i think its when she goes 3 sets that buggers it up....at the ozzy she a tough qtr and semi 3 setter, and the french all her matches were 3 setters and then she was buggered for peirce and at wimby a tough 3 setter against kim and amelie b4 the final....if she can keep her matches to 2 setters against the nomads then i fancy her chances

Well, I wouldn't normally say that three weeks is a big deal for Lindsay, it's just that it might aggravate her back injury is all.

It's not shyness I have. It's just that I'm not one of those people who loves to open a newspaper of magazine and see myself all the time. I don't like that at all. I prefer to play my tennis which I love, and with which I've been blessed.

Loves it. I think it's a great idea. Her matches right up until at least to the SF shouldn't be too difficult, and then she can get some real tests from that point on... and finally capture the giant pen.

I was thinking the same thing because he was excited and optimistic in the other thread about Lindsay's fall schedule......I don't know whether to be worried or glad.....or report it because it might be someone who's hacked Andrew's account

LOL, j/k
