Primarily a hardcourt player, Davenport has enjoyed a good run at the Open and captured the title in 1998.
The popular American has reached at least the quarter-finals in her last six trips to New York and should do well again as she appears to have recovered from a pinched nerve in her toe, which troubled her throughout the clay and grasscourt season.
Davenport, who gave her confidence a much needed boost by reaching the semis in San Diego and the final in Los Angeles earlier this month, will be determined to prove her staying power with the big guns on court.
