Porsche Race: Davenport breaks the pain barrier

by Eleanor Preston
October 19, 2002



There was one thing on Lindsay Davenport?s mind as she trailed Justine Henin 4-1 in the second set of their semi-final at the Swisscom Challenge. It wasn?t the pain in her right foot which meant she could barely move, nor was it the gutsy Belgian on the other side of the net. Davenport?s thoughts had turned to the Sanex WTA Tour's season-ending Championships presented by Porsche and the realisation that if she held on long enough to beat Henin she would almost certainly be able to claim her place in the elite 16-player draw at the season-ending event in her native Los Angeles.

'It was important to me to win this match because even if I can?t play tomorrow, I knew I could help my case to the Championships,' she said. 'That?s a big thing for me.'

From 4-1 down in the second set, and knowing she couldn?t possibility last for three sets, Davenport fought her way back into contention, hitting the ball full on in an attempt to power her way out of trouble. It worked, Henin became distracted and took her foot of the accelerator, and Davenport was in to her fifth consecutive final in Zurich.

The American will take on Patty Schnyder in Sunday?s title clash after she sent the home crowd into raptures by defeating Conchita Martinez 6-0, 6-3. Schnyder needed all her patience to cope with the wily Spaniard, who mixed pace with guile from the baseline and almost did enough to quieten the Zurich crowd. While the Swiss would love to crown a home champion no-one will want Schnyder to get the trophy on a walk-over, least of all Schnyder herself. She still has a chance to make the Championships under her own steam and while winning the title in Zurich, and her wins so far this week, would help her points tally no end, the bonus points available for beating Davenport in match play wouldn?t go amiss either.

Under normal circumstances Davenport would start the match as undoubted favourite, not least because of her extraordinary record in Zurich. Down the years she has lost just once, and that was to a Swiss player - when Martina Hingis beat her in the 2000 final. Is history about the repeat itself?

Actually she's now higher on that list in the race - she's actually in 12th position.

So my guess is she'll withdraw from Linz now that it's been confirmed she's into the Championships.

ETA Amazing Race: 5th round, 3rd point

ETA Amazing Race

the FIFTH task, the THIRD point, PIT STOP!

GIVE ME THREE PICS OF CANDIAN PERSONALITIES WITH A SMALL PROFILE ATTACHED AND PLEASE GIVE ME THE SOURCE OF WHERE YOU GOT THEM.

*the location of the FOURTH POINT and the FINISH LINE is in one of the games forum, the one where there are different teams consisting of one male singles player and one female singles player. did i mention that there is constant mixed doubles in this particular forum? the finsh line is in the topic indicating a sort of list of each team with their particular points earned. it starts with the letter "r"
