Age: 28
Lives: Laguna Beach, California
Plays: Right-handed (double-handed backhand)
Grand slam titles: Three (US Open 1998, Wimbledon 1999, Australian 2000)

Davenport loves Flushing Meadows and will harbour genuine hopes of a repeat of her 1998 triumph after rediscovering her best form during the summer.

The popular Californian went on a 14-match winning streak to sweep the US hardcourt season, claiming the Stanford, Los Angeles and San Diego titles to return to number two in the rankings - her highest since February 2002.

One of the veterans on the tour, but her groundstrokes pack as much punch as ever.
