Greetings from Hollywood!
Well, West Hollywood, really. But anyway, I’m very excited that Socal’s Lindsay Davenport will be back in singles action at the Wismilak International in Bali and in doubles even sooner than that (Pilot Pen). A local Connecticut paper, the Hartfourd Courant, has asked Linds to pen a column which will focus on her return — with child — to the tennis circuit.
We’re with Craig on this one: it’s refreshing to see a column/blog that doesn’t appear on a player or tour website. Hopefully, her unique story will reach a broader (read: non-tennis) audience.
Our buddy Chris was secretly hoping that she’d pick up a doubles wild card at this week’s East West Bank Classic aka L.A.’s ULTIMATE TENNIS CELEBRATION!!! Alas, she isn’t on the schedule. Tonight we’re going to see Masha play singles, and — if we get there early enough — Hingis and Hantuchova playing doubles.
