As much as happy about the win and how it was achieved. I want an answer that question too how did Eleni play? If it was Lindsay in the zone that's a scary thought for anyone else who's gota player, if she can keep it up or was it Elena playing like crap and Lindsay taking advantage of it?

And what will that tell you? That Lindsay hasn't played on the tour in many months and she's bound to be rusty? Honestly, I don't see her beating Jelena...yet. But give her time. Don't base her whole comeback on her second match. That's not fair.

:worship: Welcome back Lindsay :bowdown:


No, it was 20 straight points! Davenport's strong comeback is incredible. She's long been one of my faves, but I would be cautious about what this match means in terms of long-term prospects for her. One of my persistent doubts about her is whether she had the mental strength to close out a match with top players (especially with Venus), particularly toward the latter stage of her career in the last few years. It will be interesting to see if having a baby will be beneficial to her peace of mind on the court. And, of course, we'll have to wait and see about her conditioning. At any rate, why not have it all, a family, a new baby, and tennis? Welcome back!

So did Eleni get outplayed or did she just play a bad match herself? Perhaps just having Lindsay on the other side is still enough to intimidate players this early in her comeback.

Davenport plays first singles match in almost 1 year, wins in straight sets
September 11, 2007

NUSA DUA, Indonesia (AP) -- Lindsay Davenport's first singles match in nearly a year was a winning one Tuesday, an overpowering 6-2, 6-2 victory over fifth-seeded Eleni Daniilidou at the Bali Open.

Davenport, who played her last singles match in Beijing 51 weeks ago and then gave birth to son Jagger in June, withstood some early pressure but then took control.

The former top-ranked player won a remarkable 20 straight points after trailing 1-2 to win the first set. She then gave up four points in the first four games of the second set en route to the easy win.

"It did exceed my expectations," Davenport said. "I know that I can play good tennis, and I know that if I stay healthy and play well, I can do well."

Davenport said it will take awhile before she returns to top form.

"I'm still a little ways away," she said. "It's only been three months ... I still need to work on my movement around the court."

credit lindsay but it is truly pathetic when a 30 something woman who recently gave birth to a child can just come back and beat a 20 something full time player so easily.

Nothing Pathetic if that 30 something player is Lindsay Davenport

to me, it would be equally pathetic if graf came back and thrashed some players -which i no doubt believe she could do.

it is pathetic because it shows how truly inferior many of these players are.

Owned! I knew Lindsay would win this in straights, but I expected it to be at least a little tougher.

Great comeback match! :hearts: Now keep going. She can so win this.

I am so pleased. Tennis was so boring without Lindsay and Jen.

It will be very interesting to see how Jankovic could cope with Lindsay. If she loses we will know how weak the current No. 3 really is and that she, in my opinion anyway, doesn't deserve to be that high in the rankings. If Lindsay loses though, what I hope won't happen, it doesn't matter as it is her first tournament.

I really want to see Lindsay back full-time and in the Top 10 if not No. 1 where she belongs. :cool:

That's OK...I'm sure if Jankovic wins, there'll be another loss sometime in her near future you could try to use to justify your opinion.

Sep 12th, 2007, 12:43 PM
I don't need to justify my opinion. She is just up there because she plays every week. She gets her points due to the quantity of matches she plays. She has had some good wins and strong tournaments but just because she wins smaller tournaments doesn't mean she is a better player than other players who are currently behind her in the rankings such as the Williams sisters and Mauresmo. Playing loads of small tournaments and winning them worked for Martinez, why shouldn't it work for Jankovic...

If you don't need to justify this opinion, then no revelation will hinge upon JJ losing to Lindsay. I won't go into the rest of it (such as how you might think Amelie should be ranked ahead of JJ right now based on the last 12 months)...it's a trite conversation.

Sep 12th, 2007, 12:57 PM
oh what a load of crap.... the rankings dont always reflect ability. Lindsay isnt a 200 odd ranked player in reality.... Shes a top 25er at this point, with the cleanest strokes on tour. Its no shame losing to Davenport....after all she DID bagel sharapova. Too many people diss JJ. So what if she plays a lot?! shes a bloody good player, a lovely person and its nice to see some personality on the court for once!
