We all know that Pistol Pete won his last match and the tournament at the 2002 U.S. Open. Lindsay Davenport can take it a step further. She can not only win her last tennis match, and kiss that sweet, sweet trophy on the final Sunday in New York, but she can also be the first tennis player in the history of the game to retire as the number 1 tennis player in the world. If Lindsay takes the title, she will be the number one ranked tennis player on the planet. With her recent form and the summer that she has had, not losing since Wimbledon, nobody could argue that she has definitely earned the top spot. She is on the streak of her life, and she could not be doing any better than she is right now. Once you're at the top, you can only go downhill from there, especially with Lindsay's history of injuries. Lindsay has been on the tour since she was a teenager. She has seen it all and done it all. She is a mature women now with a husband. If she were to win here, she could end a great chapter in her life with no regrets, and possibly start a new chapter in her life with her family. I don't think Lindsay will retire if she wins the US Open this year, but I do believe it is at least worth considering.
