Davenport may need to rest knee before Wimbledon

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - Linsday Davenport may need to rest before Wimbledon because of an injury to her right knee that she says contributed to her French Open loss.
The injury is a flare-up to the one that sidelined the three-time major champion two years ago.

"I've had no problems with it since I had surgery," Davenport said in a conference call Wednesday. "Slowly, the last month it's been bothering me and to the point now where it's been a little bit more frequent."

Davenport was ousted from the French Open in the fourth round Sunday, losing 6-3, 6-1 to Elena Dementieva.

Davenport was to have her knee examined later Wednesday, anticipating the doctor will prescribe rest but no surgery. Davenport has three weeks before Wimbledon to see how the knee feels.

"I don't feel like I did anything too major to it, as bad as I hurt it in 2002," she said. "It's just a little concerning that it's started to hurt me on and off over the last month."

She had arthroscopic surgery on the knee in January 2002 and missed the first half of the 2002 season.

Davenport had surgery on her left foot after last year's U.S. Open. Surgeons removed a mass on the foot that had been pressing on a nerve and severed the nerve. The nerve problem forced her to withdraw from last year's Pilot Pen tournament in New Haven.

Not good IMO. This is sounding strangely similar to 2001.

She almost never enters that one on time. She usually requests a wildcard at the last minute.
