I love when it affects Australia - because there's triple the amount of press than normal here <g>

American Lindsay Davenport, who with seven titles this season has regained the world number one ranking, is already looking toward the 2005 Australian Open as a chance to add to her collection of Grand Slam titles.
"What I feel like I play for is the opportunity to win Grand Slams," Davenport said as she officially returned to the summit of women's tennis.
"I felt like this year I had two great opportunities at Wimbledon and the US Open and wasn't able to do it.
"But you know, I'm looking forward to going to Australia and trying to win again, and that's definitely the way I'm headed right now."
Davenport, back home in California after losing in the semi-finals in Moscow last week, has won three Grand Slam titles, the 1998 US Open, Wimbledon in 1999 and the Australian Open in 2000.
Now that she is back on top, she sees no reason not to shoot for more.
"I finally feel after a couple of years that I've gotten my game back and, maybe more importantly, a lot of confidence," she said.
"I've trained very hard not just to play well for a few months but to give myself the opportunity to maybe do it for a little bit longer.
"Obviously Australia, the surface that's there, I'd like to try and get an opportunity to win another one."
Despite falling in the semis in Moscow, Davenport left Russia with the world number one ranking, displacing France's Amelie Mauresmo.
Davenport, who first held the number one ranking in 1998 and whose last spell at the top was in January of 2002, said this time around the sensation was "more mellow."
She said her biggest concern was getting over the flu she picked up in Moscow, which prompted her to withdraw from the WTA event in Zurich in order to be ready for the season-ending WTA Tour Championships in Los Angeles the week of November 8.
She is also hoping she can avoid surgery on her right knee, which was operated on in January 2002, at least for the immediate future.
"There's definitely some degenerating cartilage in there," she said.
"It has held up all summer ... and that's just a matter of time. It could be a couple of years, and it could be a few months.
"I'm trying to make the most of it and it hasn't hurt at all since the French [open]."
