Lindsay to play WTT for the Capitals

Davenport added to Capitals roster for July 21 match

By Paul Bauman - Bee Staff Writer

Last Updated 12:49 pm PDT Wednesday, June 27, 2007

Lindsay Davenport, the former No. 1-ranked women's tennis player in the world, will play for the Capitals against the Newport Beach Breakers in a World TeamTennis match at 7:30 p.m. July 21 at the Galleria at Roseville, the league announced Wednesday.
Davenport, 31, gave birth to her first child, son Jagger Jonathan Leach, on June 10 in Newport Beach. She is married to Jon Leach, an investment banker and former USC player.
During her career, Davenport won three Grand Slam singles titles -- the U.S. Open in 1998, Wimbledon in 1999 and the Australian Open in 2000 -- and the singles gold medal in the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. She left the women's circuit last September and has said she will not return.
A former member of the Capitals, Davenport replaces Nicole Vaidisova on July 21. The 18-year-old Vaidisova, ranked 10th in the world after reaching a career-high No. 7 last month, chose not to return to the team because of a heavy schedule.

Could Lindsay being feeling the waters for a comeback?

Re: Lindsay to play WTT for the Capitals



I'm excited!
Perhaps she is testing the waters for a comeback. But dang that was fast, it'll be only about 5 weeks between the birth of Jagger to when this WTT match is scheduled!

Re: Lindsay to play WTT for the Capitals

That's fast. Which makes me think she really is considering a WTA comeback.

The timing is also uncanny - summer hardcourt season. There's a reason for the timing.

Re: Lindsay to play WTT for the Capitals

Just remember that's how Martina comeback started and posted as I thought you all would be interested. I have to say if Lindsay makes a comeback I'll support it.

Exclamation Re: Lindsay to play WTT for the Capitals

She had to play! BJK was probably calling every hour until she agreed.

But Mary Joe Fernandez just shocked me by saying a real Lindsay comeback IS POSSIBLE.

I don't think so. She's playing this because it's so near her home, and it's one day and out. Even Graf played a WTT event a couple years ago; it's nothing.

BUT! -- the great news is that MJF just said that Lindsay MIGHT come back -- but no, not this summer. She gave us a little hope for next year, though -- who knows?

Re: Lindsay to play WTT for the Capitals

Does it mean that she's not breastfeeding the baby?

Yes, Graf played WTT - 4+ years after she quit. The fact that Lindsay is doing this six weeks after giving birth says alot, IMO.

And it's not like this is so close to her home... she's going to have to fly up there.

Back when Lindsay was on tour, you could never go by what she said about her future. The fact that she's obviously talking to Mary Jo about it is encouraging, though.
