On Monday both Lindsay Davenport and Anastasia Myskina will fall out of Top 15 in the rankings. :sad:
Along with Amelie Mauresmo they have enjoyed the longest "alive" uninterrupted streaks in Top 15.
In fact Lindsay has been ranked inside Top 15 since Australian Open 1994 :worship: (for 12 years 8 months and 3 weeks) while Myskina has been Top 15 player since US Open 2002 (for 4 years 1 month and 2 weeks).
Mauresmo has been remaining (I'm not sure my English is correct) in Top 15 since Paris 2001 (for 5 years 8 months 2 weeks).

The longest "alive" uninterrupted streaks in Top 10:

Mauresmo - since Wimbledon 2002 - 4 years 3 months 2 weeks
Dementieva - since US Open 2003 - 3 years 1 month 2 weeks
Sharapova - since Wimbledon 2004 - 2 years 3 months 2 weeks

The longest "alive" uninterrupted streaks in Top 20:

Davenport - since Oakland 1993 - 12 years 11 months 2 weeks
Mauresmo - since Australian Open 1999 - 7 years 8 months 3 weeks
Myskina - since Birmingham 2002 - 4 years 4 months 1 week
Dementieva - since Amelia Island 2003 - 3 years 6 months
Petrova - since Toronto 2003 - 3 years 2 months 1 week

Unfortunately that will come to an end too at the end of the year :sad:

Though this is what happens when you only play 8 tournaments :(

Yup and Yup. Lindsay will be ranked between 25-30 after her YEC points from last year fall off.
Easily the worst year of her professional career.
:awww: Lindsay... :banghead:

:awww: Lindsay... :banghead:

The major positive though is that if she plays in 2007 and is healthy, she can cause major damage and rise mightly back up in the rankings.

Have a feeling Lindsay isn't all too worried.

That's true, she has virtually nothing to defend in general, and nothing from mid-March through June.
I just hope she plays next year.
Just trying to hope for the best.

At this point, Serena winning the 2005 Oz and Venus the 2005 Wimbledon titles shows us that your ranking means nothing. All you need is a solid two weeks. Ranking used to mean something when the William Sisters, Clijsters, and Henin-Hardenne dominated the top. A good ranking meant avoiding them earlier. Now, with the disarray and everyone on a equal ground, ranking means absolutely nothing. I mean seriously, no offense, but Schnyder ranked above Venus Williams? Davenport is not concerned. All she is worried about is putting together seven matches of unstoppable tennis.
One more Lindsay. You can win the 07 Oz. I can feel it. :]

Lindsay turned Pro 1993

Basically she was top 15 all of her career!!

Amazing!!!

Her match vs. Serena that I saw in Cincinnati was disgraceful. :sad: What do you think is wrong?

Clearly Davenport is not top 20 material.....more like top 5 material....she's a top 10 player

we all know that lindsay is much better than her current no.18 ranking. but however next year at the aussie open she will be seeded outside the top 8 & 16 seeding positions but she is still a dangerous floater in draws whenever she plays.

That is absolute rubbish to say the rankings mean nothing. The main difference nowadays to days gone by is that there isn't one dominant player who wins everything. So it's more even at the top. But it's pretty well universally agreed that the best 3 players in the world right now are the top 3 players in the rankings.

Sure the WS and Lindsay have the game to be ranked above Patty Schnyder - but they haven't played much and haven't had the results this year. The rankings are based on what you do - not what ppl reckon you are capable of and not on results long past. The rankings are not to blame for where the sisters and Davenport are. They (or their injurires) are to blame for them not getting the results this year to back up their ability.

Also what the hell does AO & Wimbledon 2005 have anything to do with it? Just how long do you want to go back in the past? Perhaps you think Hingis' 1999 results should count in the rankings. :rolleyes:

Myskina lost a few matches due to a lack in form and confience .. plus injuring her shoulder and having an inflamed big toe didnt help either during Montreal/New Haven/New York ... she came back too early in my opinion, should have taken the rest of the year off!

So, that is the story of the day:tape:

Nastya will be back, but I doubt that Lindsay cares about the ranks...if she actually continues, then she'll do anything to get this 4th slam under her belt. The ranking doesn't matter that much, to any player on tour ranked inside, say top50.

Myskina would be top 10, and qualified for the YEC if her 2nd half of the year was the same standard as the first half....

If one GS alone counts 1.000 points next year, players like Pierce, Capriati, Davenport or the Williams won´t have to fear a draw. On the opposite, I doubt that Mauresmo or Dementiewa would like to draw those players in earlier rounds. I think that Davenport´s unwillingness to play indoors this fall is the result of her decision to rest and get new fuel for the goals in her final year.

Maybe she even considers to continue till the Olympics after that desaster of her withdrawing in Sydney. Maybe an Olympic experience in China would be it. She would definetly be part of the Olympic team of the USA. But I think, she concentrates on playing a serious final season with a serious scheduling. That means, 2 in Australia, 2 in Arabia, 1 in the US hardcourts, 2 in the US clay courts, 2 on grass and then deciding what to do to retire with a win in the UO.
