Davenport def. Grande 6-3, 6-1

I don't get ESPN2!

I haven't seen the match, but it sounds like Lindsay is playing better than in the opening round. She failed to break Rita only once in the final set and she had an impressive winners/unforced errors ratio . It sounds like she served her way through the match (80%, 6 aces). Did I mention Rita didn't earn a single break point opportunity?

Assuming ESPN2 showed the match, anyone care to share more than statistics?

Lindsay Davenport is god.

Do you really think ESPN is going to show a lindsay match when they have that Roddick vs Rusedski serve fest? Get real you may see some highlights which i have yet to see.

I am not conceited, I am just convinced

Maybe it'll be like the Hewitt match and ESPN will air it all afternoon.

Linds definitely dominated this match. Glad to see she cleaned up her act. Now if she can keep playing like this the rest of the way.......

ESPN just promised to show this match sometime this afternoon. They have 3 hours remaining. The clock is ticking!

Much better this time. Cara Black is next, and as much as I like her, I just don't see enough power in her game to give Davenport a tussle.

The big question is Lindsay's health.
