Early life[edit] Lindsay Davenport
Lindsay Davenport
is the daughter of Wink Davenport, who was a member of the U.S. volleyball team at the 1968 Summer Olympics
1968 Summer Olympics
in Mexico City, and Ann Davenport, the president of the Southern California Volleyball Association.[5][6] Davenport was born to an athletic family. While her two older sisters, Leiann and Shannon, played volleyball,[7] she started playing tennis at age six. She was coached by Robert Lansdorp, who had coached Tracy Austin
Tracy Austin
before.[6] She attended Chadwick School
Chadwick School
in Palos Verdes Peninsula, California. At age 16, her family moved to Murrieta, California, where she attended Murrieta Valley High School, and she began to work with Lynne Rolley and Robert Van't Hof.[8][9] When Davenport was 14, she joined the United States
United States
Tennis Association junior national team. She had a rapid growth spurt — about six inches in two years — which affected her coordination, but did not hinder her performance. She excelled at junior level competitions and swept the singles and doubles titles at the National Girls' 18s and Clay Court Championships in 1991 and won the Junior U.S. Open in '92.[10] Playing style[edit] Davenport is a baseline player,[11] and her game was built largely around her groundstrokes,[9] including her two-handed backhand, and serve, which she hits with excellent placement and at its best was called "rock solid".[12] Gigi Fernández
Gigi Fernández
once remarked that Davenport has developed "a forehand as good as Steffi Graf's."[10] Davenport had a reputation as one of the tour's hardest hitters.[10][13] Gabriela Sabatini said that, "[Lindsay] likes to hit the ball hard into the corner. Very, very hard."[14] Her lack of court speed and mobility was her greatest weakness[15] until she overhauled her conditioning program and lost 30 pounds beginning in 1995, and became mentally stronger.[6][11] She was a thirteen-time grand slam finalist in doubles, but Davenport did not feel comfortable playing at the net in singles[16] until her increased speed allowed her to approach more quickly to the net in order to create easier volleys.[citation needed] Career[edit] 1991–1993[edit] While Davenport's first play dated back to 1991, she officially became a professional two years after her first professional-level matches. Davenport's doubles success in 1993 was a 17–16 record while she reached the top 100 in doubles rankings. She reached the third round at the 1993 Australian Open
Australian Open
doubles competition with Chanda Rubin. Davenport entered the top 20, despite coming into her first tournament that year ranked no. 162. She qualified for the 1993 Australian Open, reaching the third round before falling to Mary Pierce. At the Indian Wells Masters, Davenport reached the quarterfinals ranked no. 99, but lost to 7th-ranked and future doubles partner Mary Joe Fernandez. Later that year, Davenport won her first Tier III title at the European Open where she beat Nicole Bradtke in three sets in the finals. She reached the third round at the 1993 Wimbledon Championships, and at the 1993 US Open, the American reached the fourth round ranked no. 24. 1993 is also notable because it was the one time she faced Martina Navratilova, falling in three sets, 6–1 3–6 5–7, in the Oakland
Oakland
semifinals. 1994[edit] Davenport won the first professional tournament she entered in Brisbane, Australia. At the Australian Open, she reached her first Grand Slam quarterfinal, defeating no. 5 Mary Joe Fernandez

2005[edit] Davenport's success continued into 2005, when she reached her first Grand Slam final, at the Australian Open, since the 2000 US Open; she fell to Serena Williams
Serena Williams
in three sets. At the tournament in Indian Wells, California, in March, Davenport made history by defeating world no. 3 Maria Sharapova, 6–0, 6–0. It marked the first time that a player ranked in the top 3 had ever been "shut out" on the WTA tour and was the first time Sharapova had failed to win a game during a match. This turned out to be Davenport's only career victory against Sharapova. In April, she won the Bausch & Lomb Championships in Amelia Island, Florida for the third time, defeating Silvia Farina Elia in the final. In the quarterfinals of that tournament, Davenport defeated Venus Williams
Venus Williams
for the fourth consecutive time. Davenport bypassed the European clay-court season and went to the French Open
French Open
without having played a professional competitive match for weeks. She confounded expectations with a run to the quarterfinals on her least favourite surface, including a come-from-behind victory over Kim Clijsters
Kim Clijsters
in the fourth round. Davenport lost to eventual runner-up Mary Pierce. At Wimbledon, Davenport was the top seed and made it easily to the fourth round, where she was tested again by Clijsters, but came through in three sets to win her second successive match against the Belgian. Davenport then reached the semifinals, where her match against Amélie Mauresmo
Amélie Mauresmo
was interrupted by rain and was completed over the course of two days. Davenport eventually defeated Mauresmo and faced 14th-seeded Venus Williams
Venus Williams
in an all-American final. Davenport led most of the way, as she served for the match at 6–5 in the second set, and had a match point at 5–4 in the third set. Williams went on to win, 4–6, 7–6, 9–7, in the longest (in terms of time) women's Wimbledon final in history. In that match, Davenport sustained a serious back injury while leading 4–2 (40–15) in the final set, although she acknowledged after the match that the injury did not cause her defeat and that Williams was the superior mentally strong player on the day. The injury forced Davenport to withdraw from Fed Cup
Fed Cup
competition. She returned to the tour at the Stanford tournament. After reinjuring her back in a warmup just hours before her match, Davenport retired while trailing 0–5 in the first set. This back injury then forced her to withdraw from other hard-court events in San Diego and Los Angeles. Davenport returned to the WTA Tour
WTA Tour
in August, winning her comeback tournament in New Haven without dropping a set. Davenport then reached the quarterfinals of the US Open, where she held a match point on Elena Dementieva, before falling in the third set tie-break. Davenport briefly lost the no. 1 ranking following the event.

After the loss at the US Open, Davenport captured the title in Bali without dropping a set, and subsequently qualified for the WTA Tour Championships. She then won the title in Filderstadt, defeating Mauresmo in the final for the second consecutive year. The win made her only the tenth woman ever to win 50 career WTA singles titles. In Zürich, Davenport saved two match points while defeating Daniela Hantuchová. The win assured Davenport of recapturing the world no. 1 ranking from Sharapova the following week. In the final, Davenport defeated sixth seeded Patty Schnyder
Patty Schnyder
for her fourth title in Zürich and her sixth title of 2005, second only to Clijsters's nine. It was also the first time Davenport had saved match points en route to a victory since the 1999 U.S. Open. The Zürich title left her with eleven Tier I
Tier I
titles, second among active players. Davenport was a semifinalist at the WTA tour year-end championships (losing to Pierce in two tie-breaks), which ensured that she finished the year ranked no. 1. 2005 was the fourth time that Davenport ended the year ranked no. 1, joining Steffi Graf, Martina Navratilova, and Chris Evert
Chris Evert
as the only female players to end a year ranked first at least four times. In 2005, TENNIS Magazine
TENNIS Magazine
ranked Davenport 29th in its list of the 40 greatest players of the tennis era. 2006[edit] On February 22, 2006, Davenport became just the eighth woman in WTA history to win 700 singles matches, when she handed out her fourth career "double bagel", defeating Elena Likhovtseva
Elena Likhovtseva
in the second round of the Dubai tournament. At the March tournament in Indian Wells, California, Davenport lost in the fourth round to Martina Hingis. She was then absent from the tour until August because of a back injury. She returned in Los Angeles, losing a second-round match to Samantha Stosur. It was Davenport's earliest exit from a tournament since early 2003. Davenport attributed the loss to her having resumed training only three weeks prior to the start of the tournament. Davenport had re-hired Adam Peterson as her coach, with whom she worked during her 2004–05 resurgence. At the tournament in New Haven, Davenport defeated world no. 1 Amélie Mauresmo in the quarterfinals, but was forced to retire with a right shoulder injury while playing Justine Henin
Justine Henin
in the final. Despite injury, Davenport reached the US Open quarterfinals, where she again lost to Henin. Davenport's last competitive match before the December announcement of her pregnancy was a quarterfinal loss in Beijing to top-ranked Mauresmo. It was Mauresmo's first win over Davenport after nine consecutive losses. 2007[edit] On July 18, 2007, Davenport announced that she would return to the WTA Tour. At her first tournament, she partnered with Lisa Raymond
Lisa Raymond
in the doubles competition at New Haven, where they lost in the first round to top seeds Cara Black
Cara Black
and Liezel Huber. Davenport returned to singles competition in Bali, where she won her first title since 2005, defeating Daniela Hantuchová
Daniela Hantuchová
in the final. En route to the title, Davenport defeated third ranked Jelena Janković, among others. Davenport and her partner Hantuchová also advanced to the semifinals in Bali, before withdrawing from the tournament. Davenport's second tournament was in Beijing, where she defeated fourth-seeded Russian Elena Dementieva
Elena Dementieva
in the quarterfinals, before losing to Janković in the semifinals. Davenport's third tournament was in Quebec City, Canada, defeating second-seeded Vera Zvonareva
Vera Zvonareva
in the semifinals and Julia Vakulenko
Julia Vakulenko
in the final. This was Davenport's 53rd career singles title and lifted her to no. 73 in the WTA rankings. 2008[edit] Davenport won the ASB Classic in Auckland, New Zealand, the first WTA tour event of the year. Davenport defeated Aravane Rezaï
Aravane Rezaï
in the final. This raised her ranking to world no. 52. She was the only player in the WTA top 100 that had fewer than 10 tournaments counting towards her world ranking. At the first Grand Slam tournament of the year, the Australian Open, Davenport lost in the second round to eventual champion Maria Sharapova, 1–6, 3–6. This was the first time that Davenport had lost to Sharapova in straight sets. On January 14, 2008, Davenport surpassed Steffi Graf
Steffi Graf
in career prize money earned on the women's tour, garnering a total of US$21,897,501. In March, Davenport won her second tournament of the year and 55th career singles title by beating Olga Govortsova
Olga Govortsova
in the final of the Regions Morgan Keegan Championships & The Cellular South Cup in Memphis, Tennessee. She tied Virginia Wade for seventh place on the list of most singles titles won during the open era. Davenport also teamed with Lisa Raymond

in Key Biscayne, Florida, Davenport embarrassed world no. 2 and second-seeded Ana Ivanovic in the third round, 6–4, 6–2, before losing her fourth-round match with Dinara Safina, 3–6, 4–6. In her first clay-court tournament since 2005, Davenport reached the semifinals of the Bausch & Lomb Championships in Amelia Island, Florida, where she defaulted her match with Sharapova before it began, due to illness. Citing undisclosed personal reasons, Davenport withdrew from the French Open
French Open
five days before the tournament began. At Wimbledon, Davenport was seeded 25th, won her first-round match, and then withdrew from the tournament because of a right knee injury. On August 8, 2008, Davenport withdrew from the singles competition at the Olympic Games in Beijing because of a lingering knee injury.[23] She and her partner, world no. 1 doubles player Liezel Huber, lost in the women's doubles quarterfinals. At the US Open, Davenport was seeded 23rd and lost to 12th-seeded Marion Bartoli
Marion Bartoli
in the third round. Davenport was scheduled to play the Fortis Championships Luxembourg in October, but withdrew before the start of the tournament. 2009[edit] Davenport announced her intention to play in the 2009 Australian Open in January, ending speculation that she would be retiring from the sport. However, she withdrew from the event when she learned that she was expecting her second child. It was announced on June 30, 2009 that Davenport had given birth to a baby girl.[24] 2010[edit] In her first tournament since the 2008 US Open, Davenport played mixed doubles at Wimbledon with Bob Bryan, where they received a wild card.
