Josh pointed out that Lindsay Davenport has signed up to play doubles with Lisa Raymond at Pilot Pen, at which point she’ll have been two months out of the hospital after delivering her son Jagger. What a smart way of easing back into the game.
Speaking of, I think Martina Hingis should seriously consider playing more doubles in her second tennis life. The Swiss Miss’ welcome wagon ran out of gas months ago; she’s settled into the #8-#15 rankings after making a good run in tournaments earlier this year. With the game how it is now — women are still hitting with way more power than she can take — her days of winning Grand Slam singles titles are over. Even Tier I titles will be tough. She would make a greater mark on the doubles circuit, and her body would hold up better, too.
