Lindsay Davenport

Lindsay Davenport has been an on-air analyst for Tennis Channel since 2010, and hosts the networks' US Open Tonight. Davenport provides analysis for Tennis Channel’s US Open, Australian Open and French Open broadcasts, as well as some domestic tournaments.

After making her first tour appearance in 1991, Davenport had her first breakthrough season in 1993 when she won her first title at Lucerne and made the top 100. She quickly forayed into the top 10 that same year at Delray Beach, and played all four majors for the first time. In 1998 Davenport reached No. 1 in a season highlighted by sizzling summer hardcourt form, and winning four of five events at Stanford.

After an 11-month absence while having her first child in 2007, Davenport went 13-1 in three singles events, winning Bali, Beijing, and Québec City, quickly returning to the top 100. In 2008 she announced her withdrawal from the 2009 Australian Open  and left the tour indefinitely to have her second child.

Among the awards and recognitions Davenport received over her career were being named "Rookie of the Year" in 1993 by both Tennis magazine and World TeamTennis, "Tennis magazine Player of the Year" in 1998; amd "Tour Player of the Year" in both 1998 and 1999. She was also named "Tour Player of the Month" by International Tennis Writers Association in October and November of 2001 and February of 2003; and most recently 2008 "Tour Comeback of the Year" (for 2007 achievements).

Davenport also received the "Diamond ACES Award" from the tour in 1998 and 1999 for her off-court contributions, the "Prix Orange" from journalists at Roland Garros in 2000 for being the friendliest and most approachable player on the tour.
