American tennis player

Lindsay Davenport has won three Grand Slam women's tennis tournaments—all but the French Open. Davenport, who rose to a No. 1 ranking with little of the fanfare of some of her peers, looked to return to top form after missing much of 2002 to knee surgery.

Playing in her first big test of 2003, Davenport reached the fourth round of the Australian Open. She found herself adjusting from a No. 1 rank more than a year earlier to just barely in the top ten. Davenport's Grand Slam victories are the U.S. Open (1998), Wimbledon (1999) and the Australian Open (2000). She has never made it past the quarterfinals in the French Open.
