Davenport celebrates 700th victory with double bagel By Barry Wood

DUBAI (Reuters) - Lindsay Davenport celebrated her 700th singles victory on Wednesday by crushing Russia's Elena Likhovtseva 6-0 6-0 to reach the quarter-finals of the Dubai Open.

Although the defending champion struggled to win an opening game that went to deuce five times, she then cruised past an opponent who found no effective way to respond to Davenport's solid groundstrokes and big serve.

"You see the draw and I thought Elena was a tough opponent to get for my first match, so I took it obviously quite seriously," said American Davenport, the only active player to have recorded 700 wins.

"She has the ability to play really well and I didn't want to mess around. I was really concentrated and knew I wanted to get off to a good start and I was able just to roll with it."

It was only the fourth time the second seed has achieved the "double bagel" in her career.

The last occasion was at Indian Wells almost a year ago, when Maria Sharapova was her surprise victim.

"It obviously doesn't happen often and two major factors have to happen," said Davenport. "One has to play really well and the other has to have a really off day."

Yes indeed. Lindsay rocks!
