Happy Ending for Davenport

http://www.jacksonville.com/tu-onlin...12337160.shtml

Singles runner-up captures doubles title with Raymond



By Laurie Cason
Times-Union sports writer

AMELIA ISLAND -- With a high-five at mid-court, Lindsay Davenport and Lisa Raymond sealed their Bausch & Lomb Championships doubles final victory yesterday, a 7-5, 6-2 win against the top-seeded team of Virginia Ruano-Pascual and Paola Suarez.

Winning the doubles title took a little bit of the sting out of Davenport's earlier loss to Elena Dementieva in the singles final, 4-6, 7-5, 6-3.

"I wasn't disappointed at all to go back out there," Davenport said. "It's great to end the week on a happy note. And even though I didn't win [the singles championship], I think I made great strides in the quality of my tennis this week."

Raymond watched the first two sets of her partner's match against Dementieva from a courtside seat, then decided to return to the player's lounge to watch the final set on TV.

"I figured one of us had to have some energy left for this match," Raymond said with a laugh.

Davenport and Raymond fell behind 0-3, then used sharply-angled volleys and well-placed passing shots to pull to 4-4.

Bausch and Lomb Championships Finals
Elena Dementieva saysit's nice to win after such a tough year.
Lindsay Davenport talks about Dementieva's victory.

"At 0-3, we had a bunch of points to go 0-4," Davenport said. "That was the key game for us."

Raymond and Davenport settled in from there, dictating play and closing out the first set, 7-5.

Ruano Pascual and Suarez held serve to open the second set, but despite outbursts in Spanish and changing service formations, they could not shake the steady play of Davenport and Raymond, who won the next five games.

"It's not often that you get to play with your best friend and someone like Linds that can definitely carry her partner," Raymond said. "When I used to play with Rennae [Stubbs], I felt like I had a lot more pressure on me."

The Bausch & Lomb Championships doubles title is the second win for the Davenport-Raymond team; they won at Indian Wells in early March.

Did Lisa and Rennae break-up their doubles partnership on a bad note? That was an interesting quote from Lisa. Who does Rennae play with now?

Now why would you think that? She plays with anyone stupid enough to play with her lots of people, Elena Bovina, Jelena Dokic, Conchita Martinez, Meghann Shaughnessy, the list goes on. It's such a shame she can't find someone else to carry the partnership play with on a regular basis, it's really so sad

Now now Lisa, wasn't it you who ended the partnership because you wanted to play with Lindsay all the time?

Rennae's partner for the season is Corina. Sadly she's injured at the moment and so Rennae is playing with anyone who is free to fill in the gaps until Corina returns. Rennae and Lisa are still friends.
