Lindsay Davenport returns a shot during a World Team Tennis mixed doubles match against Meghann Shaughnessy and Murphy Jensen in Hartford, Conn., Friday, July 12, 2002. Davenport's partner was Mahesh Bhupathi. Davenport, 26, a three-time Grand Slam champion, was playing competitively for the first time Friday, since surgery on her right knee in January.

She looks great, especially her legs, you can see the muscels in her legs very well in the first picture.
I hope also that she can challenge the Williams Sisters.

mboyle
Jul 13th, 2002, 01:59 PM
WOW! That was my big question mark about whether she could challenge the Williams Sisters (her fitness). Though I don't expect her to immediately beat everyone in sight (Hello she lost to Shaughnessy) I hope that by the US Open, her rust will go away, and she will be near 100%. It really is too bad though that Capriati is fading away. I really liked her and loved to see her beat Serena. :sad: Maybe she can get better mentally, and get her old serve back (she used to have a monstorous first serve up until the Henin match at Wimbledon, where for some reason, everything came apart and she stopped playing as well) Good, no Great Luck Lindsay, and have fun torturing the Williams Girls :p .

Glad to see Lindsay back and in the condition that she should have been in a few years ago.
Monica, look at Lindsay, it can be done.

But, unfortunately, all is for naught because VENUS and SERENA are in better shape and in peak form right now.

The battle for the #3 & #4 spots will be hot indeed. :)

Nice to see Lindsay back.
Not nice to see TeeRexx and freethinker still in existance.

Hopefully Lindsay will provide a challenge for the top spot, because she does everything better than the Williams sisters except she is much slower.

Speed is something that can be improved but most people are naturally fast or slow, no matter their shape. Still, I hope Lindsay improved the wheels a little bit.

ROTFLMAO, too funny grandslammed. Very true indeed.

Welcome back Lindsay, love to watch you play. Now we can stop hearing how much Venus and Serena wouldn't be #1 and #2 if you were on the tour.:rolleyes: Improve that record against the sisters Lindsay, they have already annointed you the saviour of women's tennis . ;) Don't slip up, or they might turn on you.:kiss:

Jul 14th, 2002, 04:31 AM
it's nice to see Lindsay back, but i'm not sure if she's ready to challenge Venus and Serena atm. she just lost to meghann, a player who is suffering the sophomore slump. i think she'll be ready next year, she's got nothing to defend for the first seven months.

Freefall
Jul 14th, 2002, 04:37 AM
I think part of Meghann's sophomore slump, is she had a hurt back earlier this year & that held her back for a while. (No pun intended :p ) I'm not sure if she's 100% now, but I hope she is. Same with Lindsay.

:rolleyes:

The only reason most Williams fans ARE Williams fans is because they are black, so who are you to ridicule people who root for someone the same skin color as them?

I forgot, it doesn't work both ways.

Give the sarcasm a break..


Alot of us (believe it or not) are huge Lindsay fans
and our joy in seeing her back has nothing to do with
the taunting remarks about "great white hope".

I have always been a huge Lindsay supporter, I learned
to enjoy Jenn too. I doubt the Capriati crew have dumped
her as you so imply.

Why do some (notice the word SOME) of you Williams fans
always think it has something to do with them?

We tennis fans tend to not appreciate our WTA players until
their injured, out of action, or retired. I'm in also in the
other grey area where some of us dwell...."we give our
favorites even more support when things aren't going well".

To all my TRUE fellow Lindsay fans remember she does her talking on the court. Remember she likes playing the sisters and I think the challenge they now post for her is a good thing.

For Williams fans, there is nothing wrong with non fans wanting to see them challenged and for others, don't be a Lindsay fan all of a sudden just because you don't like the sisters.

You are transparent and fake and you know who you are.

American tennis has never looked better!!!!

There are a number of delusional posters here who actually think that Lindsay is going to be a major challenge to Venus & Serena. Wake up and get a grip folks! Before Lindsay came down with her injury her combinedrecord against Venus & Serena since 2000 was 3-14, LOL! I'm glad Davenport is healthy and playing again but she knows, even if many of you on this board refuse to face reality, that she ain't the one to push V & S out of the top two spots. Rocksteady, there is NOTHING that Lindsay does better than either Venus or Serena on the tennis court, including running. The completely false and idiotic notion that Venus and Serena are simply "natural athletes" who lack fundamental tennis skills is a bonehead assertion that only someone who hasn't been playing close attention to women's tennis over the past five years could possibly make. Over the past 30 months (or since the 21st century began) the combined record of "the sisters" is 239-32 with 6 GS majors. Lindsay hasn't been "challenging" Venus and Serena since the new century began, and she won't start now. Don't be silly.

RockSteady

Lindsay can do EVERYTHING better than them but isn't half as athletic. She has better net play, a more consistent, equally as devestating serve, a better second serve, a much better backhand than either of them, a better forehand than either of them, more consistence, deeper drives, better accuracy.

And the notion that Venus and Serena have won on athleticism alone is a completely true statement that only blind Williams fans cannot see.

EVERY player in the top 10, EVERY PLAYER, has a better slice, dropshot, lob, volley, and has better point construction than either sister. Maybe they can volley better than Monica. Congratulations to them, they join just about everyone to ever live in that category. They hit it hard, run fast, hit it harder, run faster. It's how they win, this has been common knowledge for the past 5 years, hitting a ball with a lot topspin doesn't constitute variety or skill, my grandmom could do that.

i saw venus and serena at the wimby final live and with my own eyes, they're not my favourite players but they are skillful as well as athletic. They have talent and heaps of it, and im sorry but i dont understand how anyone can say otherwise, whether oyu like them or not.

BUT

This is a thread about lindsay and how fit/well she is looking, no one knows her level when she returns to the tour. She may be a contender, she may not, its all speculation. As a lindsay fan myself im just glad shes back and playing.

The next person (and those who follow them) to throw in comments regarding the williams's (or any other player) good or bad - just to propenciate the bickering that has overturned the main purpose of this thread, will find themselves dealt with accordingly.
