|Lola||I was heart-broken when Steffi retired and it will happen again when Linds retires. But Lindsay will recover and continue to play tennis for us. No need to get sad now. Let's hope she will be back by the end on march and let's enjoy her on court.|

I haven't got my new copy of ACE yet!
I think the guy himself has missunderstood. Perhaps he thinks that Lindsay has previously had an op on her knee because she was out for a while last year with knee problems (Madrid, RG retired from one of the US hardcourts vs Dementieva in March).
I'll still follow WTA even when Lindsay retires. As I always say to my sister - "Lindsay rules the court! ".
I will always remember Lindsay for her great matches and most importantly for getting me into tennis in the first place! Yes, like every other British citizen, I watch Wimby EVERY year - with out fail and loved it! But I'll always remember the Olympic final 1996 was when I really started supporting Lindsay.
Lindsay's been the only player who I've had as a favourite, and it will be hard to sort of find someone else to support. The time hasn't come yet, I'm sure we'll still have at least another 3 years left.

KELLY, I read that in ACE and felt a bit miffed but Richard Eaton always in my mind seems to have a bit of a down on Lindsay. I think he was referring to her one operation this year and not to another one. He probably thought she had an operation last year. Unless I have misinterpretted and she has had another Op recently. After all we knew she would not be back before May at the very earliest. Lets keep positive for her guys, Linds will come through this!!
JACS - I would like us to keep TOP going after Lindsay retires - as you say we have all given a part of ourselves in supporting Lindsay so strongly and I would so miss you all. Hopefully we have a few years before we have to do this but it is good to consider our options for the future.
LETS KEEP LINDSAY AND TOP FOR POSTERITY.

|jacs||dont worry guys, lindsay has been through more that you think. she wont let this operation hit her as bad as she would want it to|

it took me a long time to answer to this ... because i was contemplating what to say ... anyway ...
there would be no one ever like lindsay, in my opinion, but i love women's tennis enough to stick around. lindsay would always have a wonderful place in my heart because she was the one who got me into tennis. as i have said myself before, i was crazy about lindsay so much that i created a whole club for her!
even so, lindsay would retire some day and we will face that eventually. i would want that the club be NOT disbanded even after her retirement because we have shared a bit of ourselves as TOPs and that would never change. we can remember everything about lindsay for ever!
what about it guys?

This ain't the news we want to hear. It's not good. We must remain positive

just got the new issue of ace magazine..right near the backin 'tournament preveiws' at the very end it says...
".....but the title holder wont win again. Lindsay Davenports career is in trouble after requiring ANOTHER operation on the knee she damaged last year.."
I thought this op was her first on the knee..or am i wrong? if i am then when and what was the othe op for???
any one know..
theres also a pic of lindsay advertising for eastbourne and one about a good lob shot

Besides, L needs to win her career golden slam before she retires...
LINDSAY.... ahhhhhhhhh (the crowd goes wild!)

I didn't mean to upset or depress anyone either.
Lindsay and Steffi were friendly and Lindsay admired the way Steffi retired at the top (NO 3) and she says she wants to do that - its really cool I think she said, so that really endeared me to support Lindsay although I have liked her ever since I saw her at Eastbourne in 1996 before she had really won any big title.
I idolised Steffi and was so upset when she retired although I know it was the right decision for her. I shall be just as upset when Lindsay does go but I don't think it will be just yet. I love ladies tennis but I always need someone special to root for.
GO GO GO LINDSAY

|Feb 20th, 2002 07:56 PM|
|c2||this post is too depressing to even respond to.. sorry . It's bad enough that she's out for six months without contemplating her retirement!|
|Feb 20th, 2002 12:30 PM|
Yes I agree. There will never be anyone quite like Lindsay. There's just something about her. It's hard to describe.
It will be sad when she retires....extremely....but I think I'm coping ok now.
Maybe when she retires we can beg and plead for her to e-mail us all or hold a special chat so she can say a farewell to her beloved fans. Or something like that. I think that would be very nice.
Be even better if we were all invited to her farewell party.
