Lindsay Ann Davenport (born

She is in the place number 29 of "The 40 Greatest Players of the Tennis Era" made by Tennis MagazineShe is one of only four women (the others being Steffi Graf, Martina Navratilova, and Chris Evert) since 1975 who has been the year-end World No. 1 at least four times. Davenport finished 1998, 2001, 2004, and 2005 as the top ranked player.
Her game is built largely around her groundstrokes, service return, and serve, which are considered to be among the most powerful and cleanly struck in the history of women's tennis. Her devastating return of second service is frequently taken well inside the baseline. Lack of court speed is perhaps her greatest weakness, mainly because of her size. At slightly over 6 ft 2 in (1.89 m), she is the tallest woman ever to win a Grand Slam singles title. However, she has worked to overcome this by losing weight, overhauling her conditioning program, and by becoming mentally stronger. She is an advocate for the mental game, as evidenced by her comments on the cover of "Smart Tennis: How to Play and Win the Mental Game."
Davenport is the daughter of
Wink Davenport, who was a member of the U.S. volleyball team at the 1968 Summer Olympicsin Mexico City, and Ann Davenport. She attended both Chadwick Schoolin Palos Verdes Peninsula, California and Murrieta Valley High Schoolin Murrieta, California. Davenport currently owns a home in the Irvine, Californianeighborhood of Shady Canyon.
