Top-ranked Lindsay Davenport has surgery, out 4-6 months
January 11, 2002
VAIL, COLORADO (TICKER) -- Lindsay Davenport is going to miss more than the Australian Open.
The world's top-ranked women's tennis player underwent surgery to correct a cartilage defect in her right knee Friday and will need four to six months of rehabilitation.
Tony Godsick of IMG, Davenport's agent, said in a release that Davenport had successful surgery to correct a full thickness cartilage defect on her lateral tibia.
The surgery was performed by Dr. Richard Steadman of the Steadman-Hawkins Clinic. Steadman said in a statement that Davenport's prognosis "is good for a full recovery, but the recovery will require four to six months of rehabilitation."
On Tuesday, Davenport withdrew from the Australian Open, which starts Monday (Sunday night in the United States).
Should Davenport require the full six months of rehabilitation, she would miss both the French Open and Wimbledon, the second and third Grand Slams.
Davenport suffered cartilage damage to her right knee during her semifinal match at the Sanex Championships in Munich in November. The 25-year-old American pulled out of the adidas International in Sydney this week but was hoping to participate in the Grand Slam event she won in 2000.
In addition to claiming the crown two years ago, Davenport was a semifinalist in 1998, 1999 and 2001, when she fell to eventual champion Jennifer Capriati.
