Davenport Overcomes Injury and Dechy

Davenport Overcomes Injury and Dechy
Sat May 31, 2003 10:10 AM ET
PARIS (Reuters) - Sixth seed Lindsay Davenport struggled with a foot injury before moving into the fourth round of the French Open with a 6-3 7-5 win over France's Nathalie Dechy Saturday.
The American's movement around court was restricted and she had lengthy treatment from a courtside trainer in the second set.

"I've been struggling with it for about a month, just this nerve in my foot," said the American, who is playing at Roland Garros after a two-year absence through injury.

"It comes up through just one toe. I've got good days and I've got some bad days. I took a weird step...and it kind of inflamed it.

"Once it gets inflamed, it's just not happy. The doctor and the trainers think they can calm it down tonight. It's just a day-to-day thing."

Despite the discomfort, Davenport managed to dig in and oust the 25th-seeded Frenchwoman.

Seeking the only grand slam crown missing from her collection, Davenport will be looking to overcome Spanish claycourter Conchita Martinez.

"Conchita was a very difficult opponent for me in the mid-'90s. I think I lost to her something like six or seven times in a row," said the 26-year-old American.

"I turned the tide then and don't think I've lost to her in a number of years. But she did beat me pretty badly here in the '96 quarters.

"Hopefully I've changed as a player since then."
