Would Silvia please stop blabbing about everyone's personal life :lol:

I seriously doubt it, she's been married for 3 years, so she's clearly taken precautions :p and I'm sure she's still maintained that unless of course she wanted to get pregnant, but since she has spoken about wanting more from tennis I doubt it...

She just can't be. She didn't check with WTAWorld first, so it's not possible.

It, unfortunately, would probably be the end of her career.

I still think she has one more slam in her.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if they stop using birth control after last year's US Open. The odds of getting pregnant start going down when you're 28. And Davenport has made it clear she wants kids.

However, Evonne Goolagong played on tour while she was pregnant, and came back afterward. She gained so little weight that she joked that people were asking her if the baby was sleeping through the night two months before the child was born.

Silvia needs to shut it, and not act like she's the personal go-between with the players and the media. If anyone knows in the player/former player arena, it wouldn't be Silvia.

I don't know any more than anyone else, but looking at her newest pictures, she looks amazingly fit.

It's impossible to speculate on the situation.Only Lindsay,Jonathan and their close circle of family and friends know the truth. Lindsay has repeatedly said that she wants to win one more slam and she has plenty of time to start a family when she retires. Lots of people start a family in their mid 30s and for two people in excellent physical condition that would not be a problem. I dread the day that Lindsay decides to hang up her rackets.

Does it really matter if Lindsay was pregnant? Sandrine Testud was pregnant at Wimbledon in 2002. She made it to the second round losing to Mary Pierce. If Lindsay is pregnant then I wouldn't be surprised if she saw it as a sign from God to stop playing tennis. That doesn't mean she couldn't be like Sandrine and play one more slam.

Im sure you arent going to be shocked that im going to defend Silvia but everybody on this board moans that they dont know enoguh about what REALLY happens on the tour - now we get players like Farina Elia and Maleeva talking about the tour and what is happening behind the scenes. Im sure she doesnt think of ways to stir it up because as you imply Silvia was such a quiet person on the tour.

Silvia still goes around the tour and hangs around with the Italian players and probably just says what the players are thinking as well.



I SAY THANK YOU TO PLAYERS LIKE SILVIA & MAGGIE FOR DOING THIS!

Well Maggie did that on tour also. Read he interviews before her retiremtn and you will be surprised what she has to say about the tour.

But you are right both are supposed to be quiet and now that - it is a bit strange indeed. ;)

Odds Of Getting Pregnant And Age

By Olinda Rola

The odds of getting pregnant decline with age. The odds of getting pregnant are the greatest for a woman in her early twenties and then slowly decline with the passing years. Here are some numbers related to the chances of getting pregnant and age ...

The odds of getting pregnant decline with age. The odds of getting pregnant are the greatest for a woman in her early twenties and then slowly decline with the passing years. Here are some numbers related to the chances of getting pregnant and age:

1. For ages early to mid-thirties - a woman in general will be about 15-20% less fertile.

2. For ages mid to late thirties - fertility will generally decline by up to 50%.

3. For women ages early to mid-forties - fertility declines by over 90%.

Why do the odds of getting pregnant generally decline as the woman gets older? Studies have indicated the reasons for fertility decline are related to the quality of the woman's eggs as well as the quantity. A woman in her lifetime will typically produce about 400 fully developed eggs (usually one per month) that are capable of becoming implanted in the uterus and causing pregnancy. As these eggs get used up over thirty years or so and estrogen production slows so that the uterine and vaginal linings are no longer properly stimulated, pregnancy becomes less and less likely.

And what about the male's role, age and the odds of getting pregnant? Studies have found that the probability of causing pregnancy for a man in his late thirties declines by about 40% from the probability during his twenties to mid-thirties.

How does a woman increase the odds of getting pregnant? Here are some tips:

• Know your fertile time - ovulation generally happens about 14 days before your next period begins. For women with cycles of 28 days, that could make day #14 your most fertile for getting pregnant (day #1 being the first day that your last period began).

• Monitor your basal body temperature - the slight elevations in your body temperature upon awakening each day will signal your most fertile time.

• Monitor your cervical mucus - ovulation will cause a change in the appearance and consistency of cervical mucus. Check yourself each day and you'll be able to see the 'egg-white-like' vaginal discharge that indicates ovulation and your most fertile time.

• Adopt a healthy lifestyle - the odds of getting pregnant increase the more healthy you are. Healthy living includes a sensible diet, nutritional supplements, adequate quality sleep, managing stress, some exercise and weight management.

Planning to start a family, getting pregnant and pregnancy can be exciting, frustrating, fulfilling and without any certain outcome. Improving your health will add to the likelihood that you can become pregnant and have a healthy baby.

Pregnancy After 35
What You Should Know

There may be a variety of reasons for the trend, but the facts are clear: Many women are delaying pregnancy well into their 30s and beyond.

If you’re one of them, you should know that both your chances of conceiving and delivering a healthy baby are reduced after age 30. But that doesn’t mean both can’t be accomplished. For starters, if you’re over 35 and are not yet pregnant but wish to be, there are several things you can do – both to increase your chance of becoming pregnant and to proactively increase your baby’s chance of being healthy.

Anyone who likes can just Google "Odds of getting pregnant" and start picking through articles. It takes a bit of digging, but give it half an hour or so, and you'll start seeing that virtually every source that comments on the subject says the odds of getting pregnant start going down when a woman is in her late 20's. And the odds get worse faster and faster as women age.

Of course, I got that particular piece of unpleasant news from a fertility specialist, but it's on the web too.

shirgan - What are YOUR sources of information, besides your own fantasies? (Or maybe Fox 'News').

US-based lead author Dr David Dunson said that, to his knowledge, this was the first study to observe that a woman's fertility started to decline before the age of 30. However, he reassured women that this did not mean a lower overall probability of achieving pregnancy if they delayed trying to become pregnant until their late 20s or early 30s, but it meant that it may take a month or two longer to become pregnant than it would have in their early 20s.

"Although we noted a decline in female fertility in the late 20s, what we found was a decrease in the probability of becoming pregnant per menstrual cycle, not in the probability of eventually achieving a pregnancy," he said.

The study found evidence that it is not only women who need to be concerned about their biological clock; men's fertility also begins to decline from as early as their late 30s.

However, there was some encouraging news for older would-be parents -- age did not decrease the duration of the fertile window -- the 6 days within the menstrual cycle when women were most likely to become pregnant.

she's been married for 3 years, so she's clearly taken precautions

Sometimes precautions aren't enough.:lol: :lol:

There is no way in the world that Lindsay Davenport will win another Slam . . . EVER. I don't care if she plays another ten years!!:rolleyes: She has played tennis for (how long) 10 years or more already and only won three Slams. Why, all of a sudden, do you people think she can win another one?:tape: How ridiculous.

Anyway, if she is pregnant, good for her (and her husband).:kiss:

If Lindsay looks *amazingly fit* than why is she doubtful for Wimbledon?

I totally agree. Lindsay had her chance at US 2004, got injured. The match she lost to Clijsters was when I knew for sure she'd never win a big one, cos she'd beat Maria so easily and yet couldn't beat Kim on her 2nd tournament back.

I haven't been proven wrong like so many people said.

And then that match against Vee, I so wanted her to prove me wrong. She didn't and she now she never will.

Lindsay hasn't been at the top table for sometime but she has 3 Slams and a Gold Medal, it seems that people forget what she has achieved.

Lindsay and she never has been. It's pure speculation, and she knows about as much as I or anybody else does.

God, you really are that dumb... Have you even seen the pictures? And there is a difference between being injured and physically in shape. If someone broke their leg, but was toned at 200 lbs and 3% body fat, you'd have a very hard time saying they were out of shape.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not dissing Lindsay's achievement and I do like her, I just have always known for a long time she wouldn't win a slam again.

Well no since the person with a broken leg would have a cast on it :tape:

But you neglect to mention the fact that she's beaten Kim in all their meetings since then.

But she beat Kim is a less important stage. Kim gifted the French match and Lindsay looked like she was not going to lose to anyone at Wimbledon, until the final...
