Good idea to have an interviews/articles thread and a pics one like we had on our other message board. Its beginning to feel a bit more like home. Could do with more colour don't you think?

The ever caring Lindsay! <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

FILDERSTADT, Germany (AP) -- Martina Hingis surrendered her No. 1 ranking Saturday to Jennifer Capriati when she had to abandon her semifinal match at the Porsche Grand Prix with an ankle injury.

Hingis was playing third-seeded Lindsay Davenport and needed to win to protect the No. 1 ranking.

The battle was over quickly. In the third game, Hingis lunged for a passing shot on her backhand side, stepped awkwardly and tumbled on her back.

She lost the game and during the break her right ankle was taped. Hingis went back on court but called it quits after two more points.

"It didn't look good on replay," Davenport said.

"I feel very sorry for her, she's a good friend," Davenport said. "I was very upset, it's a really bad moment for her, she had so many points to defend."

"I hope it's not that serious, I hope she can play again this year,' the American said. "But she could hardly walk to her chair."

"I talked to her after her ankle was taped and asked if she was sure she could play," Davenport said. "She said she just wanted to try but that it really hurt."

Although she lost in the quarterfinals, Capriati will be No. 1 when the new rankings come out Monday.

Hingis, a Swiss, had held the top spot for 73 consecutive weeks and a total of 209 weeks.

Capriati, winner of the Australian and French Opens this year, becomes No. 1 for the first time in her career. She is the ninth player to take the top spot since the inception of computer ran kings in 1975 and the fourth American.

Earlier, sixth-seeded Justine Henin of Belgium, seeking her fourth title of the year, overcame Sandrine Testud of France 6-3, 7-6 (3) on to reach the final of the $565,000 tournament.

In a high-quality match between two powerful hitters, Henin looked fresher in the end and breezed through the decisive tiebreaker.

The Belgian took the first set after going up a break of serve in the sixth game for a 4-2 lead.

The only time Henin was in trouble was in the fourth game of the second set, when she had to fight off two break points. She saved both, then fired an ace to help her hold.

Another ace gave her a 3-0 lead in the tiebreaker. A long backhand by the Frenchwoman gave Henin three match points. She converted the first with a service winner.

Testud had beaten Capriati in Friday's quarterfinals.

"They came for the Communists,
but I didn't speak up because
I wasn't a Communist. They came
for the Jews, but I didn't speak up
because I wasn't a Jew. They came
for the trade unionists, but I didn't
speak up because I wasn't a trade
unionist. They came for the Catholics,
but I didn't speak up because I was
a Protestant. Then they came for me,
but by that time there wasn't anyone
left to speak up for me."
