Lindsay Davenport to decide on retirement by December 1


Lindsay DavenportLindsay Davenport is thinking about a second retirement, and will soon make a decision about her future plans.

The 32-year-old American, who returned to the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour in 2007 after giving birth to son Jagger, will need to decide by December 1st whether she’ll play the 2009 tennis season.

“Nothing is in stone yet,” Davenport said in comments published by The Maui News. The tennis star was in Maui last week participating in the Wailea Fantasy Camp.

“I really just tried to enjoy this fall, be a mom, be at home. This is actually my first time on the court in 10 weeks. When I get home from here I will have to sit down more seriously and look at what I want to do in the future. Right now, I am just going with it. For sure by December 1st – I need to be practicing by then if I am going to go to Australia and really compete, so I have a few more weeks.” (via On the Baseline, photo: Ralf Reinecke)

  1. Lindsay Davenport is one of the greatest tennis players this era has witnessed. She is the pride & aura of women’s tennis.

    It would be too sad to see Lindsay go away without accomplihing her goal of winning another grand slam. She has a grand slam left in her.

    We, her fans, pray that she does not make a retirement decision & plans her schedule for next year with Australian Open.

    It would be an honour for tennis fans to get another glimpse of such a great champion on Rod Laver Arena, the first champion to triupmh in 2000!!!!!!!
