Let's Swing the Davenport triumph perhaps in New Haven!

Well even though Davenport didn't win a match in LA, she saw some positive things out there, first of all it is very important that she is healthy again!

Go and make THA Davey Swing out there Lindsay!

Here here the LA loss wasn't all bad and at least she came out of the match unscathed which is great and she healthy again and she said retirement was not option and Adam's back to add spunk to the team Davenport

at least Lindsay knows where she's at now after the loss in LA. If hopefully, she starts to feel like taking control of the points in New Haven and finally plays her level, I guess there is only one Amelie Mauresmo in her way to the triumph. Lindsay did it last year and this year, she should be looking forward to doing it again and, ambitiously, her next grand slam trophy.

I hope Lindsay can defend Pilot Pen Tennis and have a great US Open. She has had this week and next week to practice and get back to her best form. She did a similar thing in 2005 and ended up winning 4 of her last 6 tournaments.

Hell I hope she sandblasts the rust off!
If she's playing decent I think the only problem in the draw would be Dementieva.
Win Lindsay!

Something tells me its going to be a rough summer for linds .....I will be patient and give it time...but have my doubts regarding how bad she really wants this at this stage in her life if she was feeling healthy in may/july and had no desire to try and come back. I hope for our sake she will be back and playing well. I am struggling over here with the lack of american women, such as Linds, Cap (Where has she gone and will she ever be back?), and of course a couple of years ago MJ. Not a fan of the williams so dont care what they do of course they couldnt have dissappeared last yr so linds could of have two more slams ....i guess everything happens for a reason....lets hope the next few months brings promising times for one of the classiest and most respected woman tennis players of all time.

DAVENPORT & CAPRIATI FOR FAN LIFE

It's already been a rough year for Lindsay.
And I don't think she would have come back if she lacked the desire to play at her best. She's playing because she still wants to play.
She's already a step forward because she's healthy and playing again. Now she just has to get her game in order. She has a lot of work to do, but she has the team that can get her back there. It's just a matter of time.

I agree and Linds has to absolutely work her butt off to stay as fit as she has been the last couple of years and I don't think she would do it unless she really wants to be out there and winning.
Johnnymac, as far as Jen goes I have my doubts about her coming back. I was a big fan too. It sounds like her recovery is just not so good. Time is the enemy now as she is getting older. Her game required significantly more defense than Lindsay's so I don't think it bodes well for her the older she gets. But I'd love to see her back, no matter how she does!

I really hope she will be more fit by then. You can't "outfit" the Amelie's and the Elenas though. So hopefully her trademark Ï-only-hit-four-groundstrokes-max shots are back by then.
Completey random, but do you guys have any clips of Lindsay swearing? Everyone says she's always cussing like a sailor but I have never noticed it and I've watched many many matches of hers. Blissfully blind I guess.

I think she has to work as hard as she did in 2004 to get back in tip top shape. She doesn't look like she gained weight, though, which is surprising, so its a matter of just rebuilding her stamina for those long matches and her reaction time, which she said was way off.
She is never going to be the "fittest" player on tour, but if she gets to where she was at least a year ago, she should be fine.
Her game is usually the first to return after these types of layoffs.

No clips of her swearing but she definately does do it, usually in matches where she's make too many errors for her liking or she's having a "personal' day. lol.

She's coming back, I know she is. 3 Grand Slam trophies are never enough for Lindsay.
