lindsay is wta tour player of the week!!

go lindsay heres the artical.

AMELIA ISLAND, FL - It turned out to be a pretty good week to be Lindsay Davenport at the Bausch & Lomb Championships.
Davenport won her second title of the year - and second at Amelia Island - with her 64 64 victory against Amelie Mauresmo on Sunday. The title also just happened to be her 40th career title - making her only the 10th player in the Open Era to hit that plateau.

The American also became just the fourth player in the history of women's tennis to reach $17 million in career earnings - joining only Steffi Graf, Martina Navratilova and Martina Hingis in that group.

For her accomplishments in the first week of the clay court swing, Davenport has been choosen as this week's Player of the Week.

Though she's only played in a handful of tournaments, Davenport has been one of the hottest players in the game this year. And when she avoids Justine Henin-Hardenne, Davenport is a perfect 20-0. She retired before a semifinal match with the World No.1 in Sydney after suffering a strain in her right shoulder.

Then, Davenport suffered her first loss of the year to Henin-Hardenne in the quarters at the Australian Open. She went on to win her first title of the year at the Toray Pan Pacific Open in Tokyo before again falling to Henin-Hardenne - this time in the finals of the Pacific Life Open at Indian Wells.

So, Mauresmo's win against Henin-Hardenne in the semifinals on Saturday may have been a blessing in disguise. Still, Davenport faced some tough competition to get to the championship match in one of the best fields ever assembled at Amelia Island Plantation. After wins against qualifier Tian Tian Sun, Alicia Molik and a surprisingly routine win against clay court specialist Paola Suarez, Davenport had her toughest test of the tournament in a semifinal match with Nadia Petrova.

Petrova, fresh off a surprising victory against No.2 seed Serena Williams, wasted no time throwing that momentum against Davenport and stormed through to take the first set, 3-6. Petrova was up 4-2 in the second and looked well on her way to the championship match before the 1997 champion won the next seven games to turn the tide of the match.
