Considering she's been resting her knee since Wimbledon, this lingering knee injury must be serious. I doubt she's going to play at the US Open since the length of time between the Olympics and the last grand slam is shorter than the period she was resting after Wimbledon. This season just totally sucks for her.

If I were Lindsay and had chose between playing in the olympics and US open I would choosing the olympics but Lindsay has to look after her long term health too. I don't get too upset about Lindsay[ withdrawing from tournaments but this one really sucks. I hope she can play the doubles at the olympics I do agree with you that it seems one last US Open seems totally out of the question. :sad:

Lindsay can still play doubles with Huber. Although I am not sure she will since Jill can easily take her spot and she isn't blowing Huber's chances. :o

This season has been so sad for Lindsay.

I would rather she retire than do herself any further injury.

TRUE! Lindsay needs to accept her physical reality and retire, for good. Her body can^t take the rigors ot professional tennis anymore. Age 32 is old for todays tennis players. She has had a great carrer, much longer than most.

I think my English is fine, plus I didn't provoce you at all, so why are you that harsh to me?!

I know it wasn't about the Olympics, but I still felt like writing that statement, so just leave me alone...

Hint Hint Lindsay.
Stop carrying that giant of a child named Jagger and perhaps your knee injury will get better.

If she likes playing tennis, why stop? No Henin or Sharapova at USO? She must be salivating at her chances if she's healthy enough to plya.

Because she will just trample over Serena like her 3-10 H2H indicates. :rolleyes:

These past few months have been very unfortunate but before that she was doing well. Lindsay is a part-time player, and if injury-free should be able to maintain a good ranking and get some satisfying results. She's made all this effort so far it would be a shame to have the comeback end due to injury.

Who said they'll meet? :weirdo: Serena is nowhere near as consistent as Sharapova and Henin have been the past few years.

And if Davenport is healthy, she'd be much more comfortable playing Serena than Henin or Sharapova. 9 of those 10 wins are from 2003 and before.

I think out of all three of them Davenport has the most/respect and praise for Serena which leads to a mental block. Once you have had a fellow top player pretty much saying they have no chance against you, that type of mental edge doesn't go away. She went out on to the court with Serena thinking she had NO CHANCE as a former N1 player.
Davenport practically drooled over Serena commentating at this years Wimbledon even going so far as to say Serena playing her best is the best she has ever seen. Serena has the best serve, etc.
Regardless of when the wins were their respective games haven't changed enough to predict anything other than 3-11 than 4-10.

Davenport can beat that other Williams girl.

She DOESNT have a mental block against Serena and she seems to have one against Sharapova and Henin. Where are you coming up with this? Respect does not equal fear. Serena has the utmost respect for Venus but there is no mental block.

And their games haven't changed much? Serena has changed ALOT since 2003. She's less aggressive, twice as slow, her second serve is still probalby one of the best on tour, but no where near as good as it was then. But most of all, her athleticism, cour coverage, and overall speed have diminished.

That's why Davenport has had no problem going toe-to-toe with her in the 3 meetings they've had since 2003., although at AO 2005, they were both struggling with injuries.

I'm not saying Davenport would beat Serena. With her age, lack of play, and injuries, it's VERY unlikely. However, she has a chance against Serena whereas if she were to face Sharapova or Henin, we would pretty much already know the winner.

Lack of play is never an issue for Lindsay, she just has to be healthy.
