Lindsay never lost her serve through the match, saving all break points.

Here's the match report (posted this in 3 places on WTAWorld) :)

Okay my dodgy pics for SI are located here (http://img78.photobucket.com/albums/v324/gossipcom/Sport/Tennis/2005%20Sydney%20International/) - they include yesterday's Fanfest with Lindsay and her match tonight.

Basically to sum up the Davenport/Dechy match.

Davenport had Dechy on the back foot from the beginning - Dechy won the toss elected to receive.

For the first few games Davenport was on cruise control (didn't lose a point on her serve) but mid-way through the first set, some errors crept in and Dechy pounced on them and the first break didn't occur until Davenport was 4-3 on serve - she went 5-3 and was serving for the set.

Also one thing Davenport had going for her was the net cord - 3 times it went in her favour and literally the ball clipped the net and bounced over - one of them happened on Set Point.

The crowd was definitely on Davenport's side but was trying to get behind Dechy to keep the match going a bit longer, etc.

Dechy came out firing in the 2nd set, Davenport came out with all her missiles misfiring - Dechy served first in the 2nd set and was 1-0 - Davenport went to serve and her service game was the longest in the match it went to I think 5 deuces - she was 0-40 on her serve, couldn't get a first serve in and then the big guns came out to bring it to the first deuce - Dechy had 2 more BP opportunities but couldn't convert them.

After about 10 mins, Davenport finally held her serve to bring it to 1-1 and then she immediately broke Dechy - it was as if the chances of the previous game got the better of her. Apart from that one break both players held their serve, both also had a few BP opportunities throughout the second set but noone could convert.

In the end, the better player did win on the day - Dechy played well though, it was also a match where there were more forced errors and winners than UE, which was good to see - I lost count of Lindsay's ace count after the first 4 *g*.

Davenport has a day's rest and then will play on Thursday the winner of Stosur/Golovin in 40 degree temperature (my guess is that match could very well be a night match again especially if Stosur wins).

Feel free to ask any questions, etc.

ETA: Fox Sports (http://foxsports.news.com.au/story/0,8659,11916452-23210,00.html) has their article up now :)

Thanks for the match report. I'm happy that she wasn't broken and seemed to play well. And especially relieved that her knee held up and it should be okay for the rest of Australia.

I like the choice of outfit color, but it might be better to not do all yellow but instead have a contrast like yellow/black or yellow/blue. And the hair... ugh! Simply horrible. Start growing!

For those who keep track of such things, Mrs. Leach is using the new nCode Tour 95 (or her old H Tour 95 with a paint job). ;)
