Lindsay has withdrawn from the Sanex Final with a knee injury.<br /> According to what i read on UK teletext she pulled out with a knee injury she had picked up in the semi-finals yesterday and it may hinder her preparation for the Aussie Open.
Aaw well, at least she is NUMBER 1 in the WORLD! The title would've been icing on the cake.
Hope she gets better soon...At least she can rest knowing she is on top of the list !!! Who had expected she would finish the year at no.1 ??? Nobody was talking about Lindsay but slowly this year she proved once more she could be the no.1 player in the world !!!!

According to the British Eurosport "person" it is a reoccurance of the injury that kept her out for 3 months!
I saw the press conference, Lindsay was very close to tears <img src="graemlins/sad.gif" border="0" alt="[Sad]" />

MUNICH, Germany (Reuters) - World No. 1 Lindsay Davenport 's season ended on a sad note Sunday when injury forced her to pull out of the final of the WTA Championships.
Davenport, who returned to No. 1 and made sure of ending the year in top spot by beating Kim Clijsters in the semifinals, was due to play fellow American Serena Williams in the final of the season-ending event, scheduled for 1300 GMT.
She informed tournament officials that she had felt pain in her troublesome right knee at the end of her match against Belgian Clijsters Saturday and could not play.
``I can't tell you how bad I feel,'' said Davenport, who was sidelined by a knee injury for two-and-a-half months earlier in the season.
``It's the worst possible way to end the season. It's almost impossible for me to walk. I won't be able to do anything for a month.''
Poor Lindsay - what a way to end the year <img src="frown.gif" border="0"> - but like you said shirley - at least shes number one - she deserves that much at least.

Too bad <img src="graemlins/sad.gif" border="0" alt="[Sad]" />
I don't understand why they're talking about the Aus Open, that is months away. But if it is the same injury, then it could be quite serious indeed.
At least her winning streak keeps going. No one has beaten her indoors this season and she's no.1 <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">
Get well soon lindsay!!
