Davenport Seeded Third at Wimbledon

Davenport Seeded Third at Wimbledon

Despite a nagging knee injury, Lindsay Davenport, 24, was seeded No. 3 in the women’s field at Wimbledon. The elite tennis tournament begins on June 25th.

Davenport, the 1999 women’s Wimbledon champion, has been resting since the end of March after suffering a knee injury. During a match three months ago, Davenport hit a forehand, landed on the wrong foot, and bruised her right knee. She was able to play through to the end of the match, but underwent an MRI test after she left the court.

Davenport had to pull out of the French Open, for which she was also seeded third, in late May because her knee had not healed properly. It was the first Grand Slam tournament Davenport had missed since Wimbledon in 1992. Davenport will play in the pre-Wimbledon tournament at Eastbourne on Wednesday, June 20th.
