It's not shyness I have. It's just that I'm not one of those people who loves to open a newspaper of magazine and see myself all the time. I don't like that at all. I prefer to play my tennis which I love, and with which I've been blessed.

Good old Yahoo

Davenport stakes claim as No. 1, will face Mauresmo in Pilot Pen final




NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) -- Lindsay Davenport reclaimed the top spot in women's tennis Friday night, beating Russia's Anna Chakvetadze 6-3, 6-3 to advance to the final of the Pilot Pen against France's Amelie Mauresmo.

The win guarantees that Davenport will regain the No. 1 spot when the new rankings come out Monday. She had lost the top spot this week to Maria Sharapova.

``If I win the U.S. Open, I'll most likely stay there. So I'll just concentrate on that,'' Davenport said.

Mauresmo and Davenport, who will face off in Saturday's final, last met in the semifinals at Wimbledon. Davenport won that match and holds a 9-3 lifetime advantage over Mauresmo.

After losing to Venus Williams in the Wimbledon final, Davenport sat out nearly two months with a back injury, costing her the top ranking.

Davenport and Mauresmo took different paths through the semifinals. Davenport cruised past Chakvetadze in about an hour, while Mauresmo won a three-hour marathon against Spain's Anabel Medina Garrigues, winning 4-6, 7-6 (5), 6-2.

Mauresmo immediately said she wanted a chance to face Davenport.


``Before a grand slam, you always want to compare yourself with the other best players,'' Mauresmo said.

Both players are using the Pilot Pen as a tuneup for next week's U.S. Open. This is the first full tournament for Davenport since Wimbledon. Mauresmo has played only one other.

Though she appeared rusty at times this week, Davenport said her back hasn't bothered her at all. After 14 double faults in her first two matches, she finished with five aces and just two double faults Friday, showing the first sign that her dominating serve was returning.

``I felt like I had a much better tempo to my serve,'' Davenport said.

Mauresmo said she wasn't as aggressive as she wanted to be against unseeded Medina Garrigues.

But after losing the first set, she battled in the second, forcing long rallies as both players struggled to gain an edge. Mauresmo couldn't capitalize on 10 of 11 break points in the set and Medina capitalized on one of five.


It seems she is starting to care about the no1 ranking all of a sudden... ???

As much as I don't particularly care about the top spot, I like watching the number of weeks steadily clicking upwards... it's all part of Lindsay's tennis legacy and it's nice to know that it'll be at least 84 now.

I have to say I agree with you but here is another part of Lindsay's tennis legacy her grace in defeat and victory and that's one of the things I have admired about her for the last 12 years. Now Lindsay show Maria how a real number 1 acts.
