Thanks! :D

Nice to see her on-court again.
However, I wish she didn't go back to tying her hair up again. She looked way better with her headband. ;)

"Guess, whose back! Tell a friend.

But YESSSSSSS!

Lindsay's Back playing on the courts. Great news. I've waited ages for this and in fact was losing interestin Woman's Tennis but Lindsay's Back!

She was also on CNN World Sport today.
Clips from the WTT event and a quicky comment
from Lindsay were shown about her return.

LD looked great.
The time off has done wonders for her...she
looked so happy playing. :)

Now I feel happy too.

Greenout I saw her on World Sports - she was actually on twice - once before she played the other after she played (actually the one after was funny when she said how she found out she'd be playing singles first and she was like ohh noo) <g>

Thx for the pics! I'm soooo happy she's back :D:D

Welcome Back Lindsay :bounce:

an article i found on www.cnnsi.com

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -- Rested, but rusty, Lindsay Davenport tested her repaired right knee Friday night with her first competitive match in more than six months.

Davenport, the No. 9 player in the world, made her comeback in the not-so-serious confines of World Team Tennis as a member of the New York Buzz in a match against the Hartford FoxForce. She won 12 of 22 games in a combination of women's singles, mixed doubles and women's singles.

She underwent knee surgery in January to repair cartilage and lost the strength in her leg after 10 weeks on crutches. She has spent the past few months gaining it back as well as her speed and flexibility.

"It's been a long, long road. Certainly, I've got much farther to go," she said.

She opened the evening with a match against Meghann Shaughnessy, the No. 20 player, who quickly got the best of a slower Davenport and beat her 5-2.

"I'm definitely a little unsure out there about my shot selection. When you're playing well, you just kind of know where the balls are going and where you're going to hit the ball," Davenport said. "And when you don't, you second-guess yourself. I just need to get over that and play more."

Davenport grew sharper as the night wore on winning in mixed doubles with Mahesh Bhupathi and women's doubles with Liezel Huber.

Her team finished Friday night with a 22-16 win over Hartford.

"I kind of knew the first few matches I came back are going to be tough," she said. "I'm really confident I'm going to keep improving."

Davenport has one more team tennis match then plans to play in the U.S. Fed Cup series against Israel in Springfield, Mo., on July 19-20.

Hi guys I am back from 2 weeks hols. I am at work so can't say much just at the moment as I am dreadfully busy!! LOL

Its good to see Lindsay playing again and successfully by the looks of it. Can't wait for her to play Fed Cup, they may just televise some of it!

Love the shoes, but I am not keen on the hair tied back, do hope she has a re-think. I like her with the headband too.

GO GO GO LINDSAY
I will talk again just as soon as poss.
