LINDS to return in 1 month at FED CUP

Davenport, Seles head U.S. Fed Cup squad

June 19, 2002

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) -- Lindsay Davenport , who has missed all of this season with a knee injury, will return to action in a Fed Cup qualifying series against Israel next month.

Also chosen for the U.S. squad by captain Billie Jean King were fourth-ranked Monica Seles, top-ranked doubles player Lisa Raymond and Meghann Shaughnessy.

The United States will play Israel on hardcourts in Springfield, Mo., July 20-21, for the chance to rejoin the Fed Cup world group next year.

The Americans, who have won the cup a record 17 times, were eliminated from the top group by a first-round loss to Austria earlier this year in a series marked by King's dismissal of the team's top player, Jennifer Capriati, in a dispute over practice rules.

King said the best-of-five series against Israel was crucial for the United States.

``We have assembled a very talented group of Americans to compete against Israel in Springfield,'' she said.

Davenport finished last season ranked No. 1 on the WTA Tour after winning seven singles titles and two doubles championships with Raymond. Her agent said last week that Davenport would return to the tour at the Bank of the West tournament in Stanford, Calif., on July 22.

Seles has played Fed Cup for the United States each year since 1996. She has 53 career singles titles, including nine in Grand Slam events, and won the Madrid Open last month.

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.

Thanks for the news jacs

Cant wait for her to come back

Men när natten är ljus - I ditt sjuttiotalshus
Och du är ånga, spår av ett moln
I en dröm om att fly till någonting nytt

Och du håller så hårt och när längtan blir svår
Så är jag din, din, din att ta med
Att ta ut, att ta in i någonting nytt

Great news.

God, I miss Lindsay.

Good preparation for US Open (she'll reach the final and beat Martina Hingis!)

Some people fall in love and then forget their friends

Isn’t it romantic, to be romantic

Smile. Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday
