Davenport comeback complete with Fed Cup call-up

New York, Dec 19: Former world number one Lindsay Davenport's tennis comeback continued on Tuesday with a recall to the U.S Fed Cup team to face Germany.

Davenport, 31, a three-times grand slam tournament winner, returned to the court in September after an 11 month absence while she gave birth to her first child. The February quarter-final tie against Germany in La Jolla, California, will be Davenport's first singles appearance in the States since the 2006 U.S Open. I am honoured to represent my country on the U.S. Fed Cup team once again," said Davenport. My Fed Cup appearances have given me some of the best memories of my career and I look forward to La Jolla and helping our team advance to the semi-finals," she added.

U.S. Fed Cup captain Zina Garrison said she had been impressed by Davenport's comeback.

"Lindsay is such a great Fed Cup competitor and her return to tennis last season proved her love for and commitment to the game," said Garrison.

"We are thrilled to have her back on the U.S. Fed Cup team. It will be exciting to watch her compete for her country once again."

Davenport made her Fed Cup debut in 1993 and has led the U.S. to five finals and three titles, she has not lost a match in Fed Cup competition since 1994 and has not appeared on a losing team since 1995
