While she stood nearly 6'3" tall, towering  above many of her contemporaries, Lindsay Davenport was never one to seek the limelight as a pro, although her results certainly merited much attention. A humble player groomed on the hard courts of California, Davenport captured every major in either singles or doubles. She claimed her first major singles title at the 1998 US Open, won Wimbledon the following year, and secured the Australian Open crown in 2000. As a doubles player, she was outstanding, winning the French Open with Mary Joe Fernandez in 1996, taking the US Open alongside Jana Novotna in 1997, and prevailing at Wimbledon in 1999 with Corina Morariu. She captured 55 singles titles altogether on the WTA Tour, adding another 38 crowns in doubles.
