Lindsay may not come back

It doesn't look good for last year's comeback queen. Lindsay Davenport will skip the Australian Open 2009. The former world No.1 still hasn't recovered from a knee injury, that has forced her to withdraw from Wimbledon, US Open and several other tournaments this year. Having in mind how long it takes to recover in her tennis-age (see Capriati and Pierce) a final retirement isn't out of question.

According to Linda Pearce from The Age:

"Lindsay Davenport is not expected to contest January's Australian Open. Still troubled by a knee injury, the 2000 champion at Melbourne Park is considered unlikely to play at tour-level again, having made a comeback in 2007 following the birth of her first child, Jagger."

Let's keep our fingers crossed Lindsay once again pulls of a stunning return to the Tour!
