Lindsay to play Eastbourne

I saw on my local news that Lindsay is confirmed to play again at Eastbourne this year. I may get tickets.

http://www.lta.org.uk/Newsroom/Gener...5-343e7cbbdea1

Former Wimbledon Champions Lindsay Davenport and Amelie Mauresmo will return to Eastbourne this summer to take part in the International Womenís Open from 14th-21st June (box office 01323 412 000).

Davenport and Mauresmo who have both been ranked number one in the world have had success on previous visits to Eastbourne. Davenport won the title in 2001 while Mauresmo finished runner up in last yearís event and won the doubles title with Svetlana Kuznetsova in 2006.

Lindsay Davenport returned to the WTA tour in 2007 after an 11 month absence while having her first child. The former world number one has won 55 Tour singles titles so far in her career including the US Open in 1998, Wimbledon in 1999 and the Australian Open in 2000. Since her return to the tour Davenport has won titles in Auckland, Memphis, Bali and Quebec City and is currently ranked 24th in the world.

Amelie Mauresmo has consistently been one of the best players on the womenís tour over the last decade finishing in the top 20 for nine consecutive years. Mauresmo has won 24 career singles titles including the Australian Open and Wimbledon in 2006. This year Mauresmo has reached Tour quarter finals in Australia, Paris, Dubai and Amelia Island.

Gavin Fletcher, International Womenís Open Tournament Director said: ďAmelie and Lindsay are truly world class players and both very popular with the fans so it is fantastic news that they will be in Eastbourne this summer. Eastbourne regularly attracts the best players in the world and it looks like this year will be no exception with more names set to be announced over the coming weeks.Ē

In April the LTA announced that from 2009 Devonshire Park would host a combined international menís and womenís event with the menís event currently held in Nottingham being moved to Eastbourne.

Tickets are currently on sale for the International Womenís Open which takes place at Devonshire Park, Eastbourne and offers sports fans an opportunity to watch world class tennis. Ticket information is available from the box office on 01323 412 000. Qualifying for the International Womenís Open begins on 14th June with main draw matches taking place between 16th-21st June

In the world you are just 1 person, but to 1 person you are the world

Re: Lindsay to play Eastbourne

Thanks for posting this Nikki I was hoping Lindsay would play a tournament before Wimbledon. It will do Lindsay good to play some matches before Wimbledon. if you've never seen Lindsay play live do yourself a favour and get tickets as it's something you have to do once before she retires for good.

Re: Lindsay to play Eastbourne

I saw her play here in 2001 & saw her practice. She is a hard grafter. I did have tickets for the following year but she was knocked out the day before I went.

Great news. I hope she can do well there. It would also be good to play some doubles at Eastbourne aswell.

Re: Lindsay to play Eastbourne

when Lindsay has played Eastbourne she has done really well or lost early. I hope this time Lindsay does really well and then goes on and kicks some butt a Wimbledon.
