NEWPORT, RI, USA - For a few years in the early 1990s, Lindsay Davenport looked in danger of becoming one of tennis' great unfulfilled talents. From the age of 18, the big-hitting Californian had been a near-permanent fixture in the Top 10, but had only a handful of minor titles and Slam quarterfinals to show for her efforts.

Then came the Atlanta Olympics, where the American produced the best tennis of her career to capture gold. Over the following decade, freed from the shackles of expectation, Davenport went about fulfilling that boundless potential, collecting three majors and spending nearly 100 weeks as World No.1.

On Saturday, she was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame and to mark the occasion Tennis.com's Peter Bodo took a look back at her career.
