Here's the match report (posted this in 3 places on WTAWorld)
Okay my dodgy pics for SI are located here
- they include yesterday's Fanfest with Lindsay and her match tonight.
Basically to sum up the Davenport/Dechy match.
Davenport had Dechy on the back foot from the beginning - Dechy won the toss elected to receive.
For the first few games Davenport was on cruise control (didn't lose a point on her serve) but mid-way through the first set, some errors crept in and Dechy pounced on them and the first break didn't occur until Davenport was 4-3 on serve - she went 5-3 and was serving for the set.
Also one thing Davenport had going for her was the net cord - 3 times it went in her favour and literally the ball clipped the net and bounced over - one of them happened on Set Point.
The crowd was definitely on Davenport's side but was trying to get behind Dechy to keep the match going a bit longer, etc.
Dechy came out firing in the 2nd set, Davenport came out with all her missiles misfiring - Dechy served first in the 2nd set and was 1-0 - Davenport went to serve and her service game was the longest in the match it went to I think 5 deuces - she was 0-40 on her serve, couldn't get a first serve in and then the big guns came out to bring it to the first deuce - Dechy had 2 more BP opportunities but couldn't convert them.
After about 10 mins, Davenport finally held her serve to bring it to 1-1 and then she immediately broke Dechy - it was as if the chances of the previous game got the better of her. Apart from that one break both players held their serve, both also had a few BP opportunities throughout the second set but noone could convert.
In the end, the better player did win on the day - Dechy played well though, it was also a match where there were more forced errors and winners than UE, which was good to see - I lost count of Lindsay's ace count after the first 4 *g*.
Davenport has a day's rest and then will play on Thursday the winner of Stosur/Golovin in 40 degree temperature (my guess is that match could very well be a night match again especially if Stosur wins).
Feel free to ask any questions, etc.
