Singles runner-up captures doubles title with Raymond



By Laurie Cason
Times-Union sports writer

AMELIA ISLAND -- With a high-five at mid-court, Lindsay Davenport and Lisa Raymond sealed their Bausch & Lomb Championships doubles final victory yesterday, a 7-5, 6-2 win against the top-seeded team of Virginia Ruano-Pascual and Paola Suarez.

Winning the doubles title took a little bit of the sting out of Davenport's earlier loss to Elena Dementieva in the singles final, 4-6, 7-5, 6-3.

"I wasn't disappointed at all to go back out there," Davenport said. "It's great to end the week on a happy note. And even though I didn't win [the singles championship], I think I made great strides in the quality of my tennis this week."

Raymond watched the first two sets of her partner's match against Dementieva from a courtside seat, then decided to return to the player's lounge to watch the final set on TV.

"I figured one of us had to have some energy left for this match," Raymond said with a laugh.

Davenport and Raymond fell behind 0-3, then used sharply-angled volleys and well-placed passing shots to pull to 4-4.

Elena Dementieva saysit's nice to win after such a tough year.
Lindsay Davenport talks about Dementieva's victory.

"At 0-3, we had a bunch of points to go 0-4," Davenport said. "That was the key game for us."

Raymond and Davenport settled in from there, dictating play and closing out the first set, 7-5.

Ruano Pascual and Suarez held serve to open the second set, but despite outbursts in Spanish and changing service formations, they could not shake the steady play of Davenport and Raymond, who won the next five games.

"It's not often that you get to play with your best friend and someone like Linds that can definitely carry her partner," Raymond said. "When I used to play with Rennae [Stubbs], I felt like I had a lot more pressure on me."

The Bausch & Lomb Championships doubles title is the second win for the Davenport-Raymond team; they won at Indian Wells in early March.

Did Lisa and Rennae break-up their doubles partnership on a bad note? That was an interesting quote from Lisa. Who does Rennae play with now?

Now why would you think that? ;) She plays with anyone stupid enough to play with her lots of people, Elena Bovina, Jelena Dokic, Conchita Martinez, Meghann Shaughnessy, the list goes on. It's such a shame she can't find someone else to carry the partnership play with on a regular basis, it's really so sad :D

Now now Lisa, wasn't it you who ended the partnership because you wanted to play with Lindsay all the time? :p

Rennae's partner for the season is Corina. Sadly she's injured at the moment and so Rennae is playing with anyone who is free to fill in the gaps until Corina returns. Rennae and Lisa are still friends.

Doh, of course it is not! *I* am the true and only Lisa Raymond (in disguise of course). That's just an imposter, how dare she! :( ;)

Look Gallofa, I know you worship me and want to be like me and all that (and no, I have not done anything to encourage it), but this is taking things too far... For the last time, STOP FOLLOWING ME :fiery: (and I suggest you seek some kind of psychiatric help for your delusions too ;) )

I heard that lraymond and stubbs broke up on a BAD note and that they are not friends and that they r both not making an attempt to patch the fire works up.

Stubbs plays with anyone that is really free: like Bovina, Dokic, Martinez, Petrova.

Too far?! it's the fake blond hair, isn't it? It really doesn't suit me... do you think it's really too much? :( ;)

Bis, did you know that the word "gullible" is not in the dictionary?

At least she earned the doubles title .... wish she'd play Berlin or Rome, but I guess she's dead set against it. Never had too much success there anyway....

Well you have come to the right person to seek style tips... Yes, the fake blonde hair is too much. Only stupid, uneducated people who never went to college dye their hair. My hair is, of course, naturally this shade of blonde, it is simply a trick of the light and poor photography that makes it look otherwise ;)

Well, if one ever does, I'm sure they won't a) flaunt their celebrity and talents and b) trash all that have done them wrong. That's usually your first clue when its an imposter, smart guy.

I have no idea what you are talking about.

Perhaps I am practicing reverse psychology. After all, I went to college ;)

Hey bis, we are just kidding. Me and "LisaRaymond" here have known each other for a while ;) - we are not poking fun of you. It is very possible that some real tennis players do post in this board. Just be sure neither "LisaRaymond" nor me are!

oh golf... It was clearly so horrifying an experience that I blanked it from my mind... Unless of course you are an imposter making up scandalous lies about me, I mean, look who you are a fan of... ;)

tssss Gallofa, I am sure noone believed for a second that you were me.

Me and "LisaRaymond" here have known each other for a while ;)

:confused: we have? I think the phrase you were looking for is "I have followed" Lisa Raymond for a while. Obsessive stalking is really not the same thing as knowing someone, whatever you might like to think ;)

Stubbsy71 is the name of the web site I run for Rennae Stubbs. And despite what people think Lisa and Rennae are still good friends.

I know. It is a very good web site too :) , although it has declinded since you took all the pictures and information about me off it! ;) Since you missed the opportunity to put a link, in the spirit of general friendship, I will do it for you: Rennae Reporter (http://www.rennaestubbs.fsnet.co.uk/stubbsy71/)
