Age: 28
Lives: Laguna Beach, California
Plays: Right-handed (double-handed backhand)
Grand slam titles: Three (US Open 1998, Wimbledon 1999, Australian 2000)
Record at US Open: 2003-semi-finals, 2002-semi-finals, 2001-quarter-finals, 2000-runner-up, 1999-semi-final, 1998-winner, 1997-semi-final, 1996-fourth round, 1995-second round, 1994-third round, 1993-fourth round, 1992-second round, 1991-first round.

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.
