Some interesting Lindsay news

Here is an article that might interest alot of you. Rumour has it that Lindsay didn't pull out of Wimbledon because of the back inury she's had since March. Here is the bit of the article concerning Lindsay. If you would like to read the full article you will find the link at the end of this post.

As for the American women, long the game’s dominant bloc, the top-ranked player is Lindsay Davenport, who started the year at No. 1 and has dropped to No. 10.
Davenport, who turned 30 last month, has not played on tour since March, citing a back injury. But she withdrew from Wimbledon, where she reached the final in 2005, because of a different health problem. After resuming training in her native California before Wimbledon, she fell at home and sustained a concussion along with other as-yet-unconfirmed injuries.

In an e-mail message forwarded by her agent, Tony Godsick, Davenport confirmed that she had injured herself in the fall but did not give details. She has resumed practicing in preparation for the United States Open but is not ready to give a date for a comeback.

Its a fair question but I think they are and if Lindsay injured herself let's hope it wasn't the back again and she alright to play during hte hardcourt season.

NYTimes is reputable, and I'm afrad the next news we'll hear could be about either retirement, or another injury.
My hopes of seeing Lindsay again on court are LOW.

Yes, along with the LA Times, they are the most trustworthy papers in the US.

The NY Post on the other hand...

That's stupid. Really, really stupid. If anything, this news is good. It shows that her back is better, and that what kept her from Wimbledon was a temporary things which she can, will and has recovered from.

At this point, I fully expect to see her at the California hardcourt events.

I agree. That sounded scary, though.. I'm glad it wasn't as serious as it could have been.

So if she didn't fall she might have been at Wimbledon

Surely she's due a break sometime soon!

Well, do we know anything more about whether she did hurt her back or sustained something else apart from the concussion? NO. There's a possibility that she sustained other injuries.
So, maybe I'm not as optimistic as you are, but I hope you're right. Believe me that I really do hope Lindsay's coming back soon, but every news we get is neither a statement from Lindsay herself, nor a clear view of her actual injury. And it's been almost 4 months since she played her last match, and it's been alomst a month since she fell, but we know this only now.

What may mean she's not ready to play Stanford, SD, cos it's only in 2 weeks time now, or it means nothing, but it certainly doesn't meran she's 100% fit, ready to go.

Has any other player in the history of the game ever had such bad luck?
