She's now just behind Steffi and Martina Navratalova... not too bad a week then, eh?

"She wasn't tough to play. I shot myself in the foot," Williams said. "I definitely won that match."

Not quite, Serena. Davenport rolled to a 3-0 lead in the third set, then broke Williams a second time on a double fault to go up 5-1. Davenport survived two break points in the last game, then won when Williams netted a forehand volley.

Williams used a derogatory term to describe her play. "I couldn't put it into any other words," she said. "I would, but I am a Christian woman."

Davenport burst out laughing at the suggestion that Williams let down to help her advance.

"I would be lying on the floor if she said, 'I gave Lindsay a bone and tried to help her qualify,' " Davenport said. "She's great and I get along with her, but I don't think her mind works in a way that she was trying to help me out."

Davenport was 5-0 against Serena and Venus Williams this year after not beating either of the sisters the previous four years. She earned $130,000, and moved into third on the career earnings list behind Steffi Graf and Martina Navratilova with $18,461,641.

I agree with you!! Besides if Lindsay had played well the whole match she would have beaten down Serena, she was playing crap in the first set.

Well if she can win a GS or two next year she could very well take over SG and MN. She just needs to win those nice expensive tournaments - or sell a few of the Porsches she won this year ;)

I would push it and say that this is a good indication that Lindsay is one of the best 3 players to have ever played, but I can't really use money as an indication because as time's gone on the bigger the prize money. But still, with a couple of huge wins next year, Lindsay could be the biggest earner in Womens tennis!

Go Lindsay! :woohoo: breaking records right, left and centre :bounce:

Agreed. I do wish Serena would acknowledge that other players sometimes do play better than her and do beat her. Serena and Venus are are so arrogant1:(
