Is Lindsay back on track????

whats going on with Lindsay, we are told she is on the list for Eastborne and then there are people saying she still can't put any wait on her leg - its driving me crazy surely if she isn't fit now she wouldn't enter an event and then risk the back lash of pulling out what do you think.

Annoying people and letting her Fans down just isn't Lindsay's thing.

Whatever is going on in the Davenport camp Im still bouncing for Lindsay

KICK SOME ASS LINDSAY!!!!!!

Hi Kaz I have just responded on the subject in PM's to you.

I heard a commentator say at the Amelia Island Tournament that Lindsay was not yet weighbearing and would most likely not return until the US Open. Then she commits to Eastbourne, so I am sure I don't know whats going on. Like you say she does not like to let her fans and organisers of Tournaments down.

I think she may have had to commit to the WTA tour whether or not she will be playing and defending her title at Eastbourne. Probably the tournament organisers wanted to know for advertising purposes. I know that the WTA made the commitments different this year in that they had to commit to so many tournaments and then could add on to the list later.

Whatever, Come back soon Lindsay, Please


I am still bouncing for her too.

Cheers - Jan

I too have had similar surgery on my knee & I was only out for a few weeks. I'm sure she will be back for Eastbourne

Kelly do you think the WTA would reply I don't think they could be arsed myself, its a shame Lindsay doesn't have an official website that is updated at least monthly to let her fans know whats going on.

Cyndy, I agree, August is too too long to wait for Lindsay. I am sure the others must be right and that she will be back for Eastbourne - thats what I am looking to myself. Gosh it seems such an age since she was due to play Serena in the Championships final doesn't it.

GO GO GO LINDSAY

you know what, sometimes it still bugs me that lindsay should probably have had that surgery last november.

oh well.

ive got to agree with jan. the eatbourne organisers probably placed this for advertising purposes. it makes more sense somewhat because still alot of people are saying her therapy is going slow.


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.

Thumbs up

Fingers crossed for Eastbourne, 'cause the US Open is so far away and I hope Lindsay is back before then.

grr i hope she's back in time for Eastbourne, the sooner the better.

ok, here's the deal. i emailed the sanex wta tour and asked them about her scheduled return, her progress, and any other way of contacting her. im not sure if they'll respond, so this is my thought. if we all send them a letter, they're bound to notice one of them and reply to one if not all of us. if you want to know (or just want to help), please write your own message or use mine (which i have posted below). feel free to copy mine and change it as you want or just send it as is so that they'll be flooded w/ lindsay emails and they'll have to respond (hehe...lol ). i didnt sign it w/ anything which is why that's not listed, but if you want to feel free. thanx guys

To Whom It May Concern:

I am a member of a WTA message board and a group of us are very big Lindsay Davenport fans. We have heard from more than one source that she is scheduled to return at the Eastbourne tournament this year. Other sources have said that she is not going to return until the US Open. If you have any idea about her scheduled return, her progress, or any other information as to how we could contact someone, could you please let me know. I hope to hear from you soon.

Thank you and have a nice day.

Subject: help me please!!!!


OK where do i start...i am a huge lindsay davenport fan and like most of her fans we are going totally out of our minds with her not playing. u see the problem is she has agreed to play at eastbourne in june....BUT...people keep saying on the tv that her leg isnt weight bearing and she wont be back till august!!
i was wondering that with u having contact with the players...well not u personally, but u could find sum1 to help me right? would u be able to find out whether or not she is weight bearing, or going to play eastbourne. it would be alot easyer if she had an official website but she doesnt..so ur my last hope. i am a huge fan of womens tennis and believe it or not lindsay's injury is making me feel really unhappy and crappy. so i am begging u...all at the WTA to help me and let me know what the hell is going on with that damn knee of hers! if nobady there can help me would u be able to give me an email address of someone who can help me..

i hope to hear from u soon....love

kellyXXXX

Kelly,

Sorry to say, but I don't have any other information to give you. I've sent your e-mail on to Lindsay. If she wants you or anyone else to know what her status is she'll answer.

Jim
