"My back is feeling really great" :D

Dethroned Davenport declares herself fit after back injury


NEW HAVEN, United States (AFP) - US veteran Lindsay Davenport, on the verge of being dethroned as women's world number one, brushed aside any notion of retirement, declaring herself fit after a nagging back injury.

Davenport, who loses her top ranking on Monday to Russian Maria Sharapova, spoke here Sunday on the opening day of a 1.25 million-dollar WTA and ATP hardcourt tournament, the final US Open tuneup.

"I dont follow it. Its such a cyclical thing," Danvenport said of the rankings. "To be honest, I was surprised I was number one up until today."

The 29-year-old American, a four-time runner-up here in the past six years, suffered a back injury in the third set of her loss to Venus Williams in the Wimbledon women's final. She has been resting most of the seven weeks since.

"My back is feeling really great," Davenport said. "I didn't do anything but rest. It was a little difficult because Im such a hyped person. It was weird not doing anything. Now, Im back and ready to play for as much I can go."

Davenport pulled out of the Fed Cup semi-finals the following week and quit in her first WTA match with lower back strain after losing five games in only 18 minutes to Germany's Anna-Lena Groenefeld in July at Stanford, California.

"I probably came back too soon," admitted the three-time Grand Slam champion. "It was frustrating because the hard-court season is usually my best time of the year.

"But at this time of my career, Im not going to compete anymore if Im not 100 percent healthy."

Davenport, who lost January's Australian Open final to Serena Williams, then withdrew from events at San Diego and Los Angeles. But she brushed aside concern over the injury, saying past thoughts of retirement are gone.

"I cant foresee a time stopping at the moment," Davenport said.

*does a little dance and shakes that thing* YES!!! Now take the title AND the US Open dammit!!!!

LINDSAY DAVENPORT!
Say what you like about Davenport, but shes achieved what most others could only dream of!

Yes it seems she back excuse the pun there and it sounds like energy won't be a problem for the next three weeks. It seems this injury could end up being a blessing as she will be well rested and when she well rested as was the case at Wimbledon she plays better.

Great to hear about the back! And it's alright that she has been doing "nothing" these last few weeks! Remember what Mary Joe said about Lindsay's timing, "She's realized her timing is pretty much impeccable. It only takes her a couple of days to get it."

Lindsay should have kids with Jan-Mike. I'll be creating a thread on this, shortly.

I am so glad she is healthy again! Go Lindsay!
Now win New Haven and get back to your spot.

(I hope you guys don’t mind me posting here. Maybe I am not a passionate Lindsay fan, but I really love her and have a huge respect for her)

"I dream of people watching me holding up my third Wimbledon trophy... Most of all I dream of being a good person to all that are inspired by me I dream of having girls, women, boys, men being fond of not only what I have done on the tennis court, or on the big screen or what I design but I dream of what people think of me as a person.
I dream that people think of me as a giving person as a person that
loves life and is fun to be around." - Serena

I don't think anyone in here minds at all.....you're welcome here even if you just like Lindsay a little itty bit As long as someone has something nice to say....we don't mind at all

Back onto the subject

great to hear from Lindsay and especially sounding so possitive. Apparently she does have to get to the finals in order to re-establish herself at number one.....but if she's gonna win this and the US Open then it really doesn't matter

C'mon Lindsay

Thank you. It is so good to see some group of people (other than RC), who are so nice and polite.

BTW, I don't like Lindsay just a little bit, I just don't like her as much as I like Serena and Venus, but Lindsay is my "second favorite" (and few of those upcoming kids as well)
