sunday survey: the comeback kid(s)


Click the image to watch video of Mauresmo displaying her masterful hands at Queens. Will Amelie pull a Clijsters-like comeback?!

Recently there has been plenty of comeback speculation on the WTA Tour. Lindsay Davenport is playing mixed doubles at Wimbledon (with Bob Bryan) and two tour events (with Liezel Huber) in California this summer. Martina Hingis is playing World Team Tennis, which Billie Jean King thinks will lead to a return in doubles for the Swiss Miss. And Amelie Mauresmo was spotted at Queen’s helping out with Michael Llorda‘s grasscourt campaign.

With Kimiko Date Krumm stunning Dinara Safina in the first round of the French Open and Francesca Schiavone taking the whole enchilada, is there any reason to believe that none of these ‘over the hill’ gals could not come back?! We’d love to see that happen…

If you could pick just one to make a return, it would be…

    mauresmo has been hired as an advisor/coach for llodra’s grass court season. i for one think it’s fantastic he’s good to have a girl in his training camp.

    I voted for Mary Pierce. I just loved how her game looked. I was tempted to submit Anna Kournikova’s name as a write in – she played smart tennis but just couldn’t win. I would have voted for Lindsay Davenport but I realistically just can’t see her interested in a return …and that’s not so bad, because Lindsay has really grown into her own as a tennis commentator and analyst.

    Idle talk. Mauresmo has no nerve, Hingins no serve and Davenport no movement. That’s why they left in the first place. They would be gobbled up by anyone in top 100.

    Plenty of women in the top 50 are missing one of those ingredients Eric. Mauresmo had reasonable rankings last year even though she clearly wasn’t into it.
