SF Lindsay Davenport beat Steffi Graf 62 75

F Lindsay Davenport beat Martina Hingis 64 63

Two great runs to the semi finals as Steffi Graf achieves back-to-back victories over the Williams sisters (aged 17 and 18) and Schett knocks out Mauresmo and the Spanish duo of Sanchez and Martinez but both are beaten in the semi finals by Lindsay Davenport and Martina Hingis respectively. For the second year in succession, the Williams sisters fall to the same opponent.

2001


Prize Money raised to $515,000

L16 Hingis bt Clijsters 64 64
L16 Morariu bt Kournikova (#6 00 YER 8) 62 61
L16 Mauresmo bt Coetzer (#7) 75 75

QF Amélie Mauresmo FRA bt Monica Seles USA (#3 00 YER 4) 64 76
QF Lindsay Davenport USA (#2 00 YER 2) bt Lisa Raymond USA 76 64

SF Martina Hingis bt Conchita Martinez (#4) 63 62
SF Lindsay Davenport bt Amélie Mauresmo w/o

F Martina Hingis beat Lindsay Davenport 63 46 75

Hingis reduces her h2h deficit vs Lindsay to 10-12 and beats three top 6 players and three grand slam champions en route to the title. Mauresmo’s recurrent back problems force her to default the semi after her first ever career victory over Monica Seles, who was returning to Sydney for the first time since she won the title in 1996. The Hingis-Davenport encounter marks the fourth time in the tournament’s history when the world’s top 2 have met.

Re: New South Wales Championships

2002

Prize Money raised to $585,000

L16 Alexandra Stevenson (Q) bt Jennifer Capriati (#1 01 YER2) 76 36 64
L16 Serena Williams beat Anna Kournikova 62 46 63

QF Meghann Shaughnessy USA beat Alexandra Stevenson USA 64 61
QF Serena Williams USA (#4 01 YER 6) beat Amélie Mauresmo FRA (#6 01 YER 9) 64 76
QF Kim Clijsters BEL (#3 01 YER 5) beat Justine Henin-Hardenne BEL (#5 01 YER 7) 76 62
QF Martina Hingis SWI (#2 01 YER 4) beat Sandrine Testud FRA 64 62

SF Martina Hingis beat Kim Clijsters 75 46 62
SF Meghann Shaughnessy beat Serena Williams 54 retired

F Martina Hingis beat Meghann Shaughnessey 62 63

Hingis emerges from a field containing 6 of the world’s top 10 to notch up 501 career match wins and join Nancye Wynne Bolton, Court, Goolagong and Navratilova as the 5th woman to win three Sydney titles since 1945. She is also the first woman since Navratilova 84/85 and only the 7th post 1940 to defend the title successfully. Alexandra Stevenson beats a Capriati hampered by a hip injury. Capriati recovered to take the Australian Open but the ankle injury which forced Serena to pull out of her semi final ended her Australian campaign.

2003

L16 Tatiana Panova bt Jennifer Capriati (#1 02 YER 3) 46 64 75
L16 Amanda Coetzer bt Maggie Maleeva (#8) 64 61

QF Tatiana Panova RUS bt Olga Barabanshikova BLS 63 62
QF Lindsay Davenport USA (#6 02 YER12 ) bt Daniela Hantuchova SLV (#4 02 YER 8) 64 36 76 (3)
QF Justine Henin Hardenne BEL (#3 02 YER 5) bt Amanda Coetzer RSA 64 64
QF Kim Clijsters BEL (#2 02 YER 4) beat Chanda Rubin USA (#7) 61 62

SF Lindsay Davenport bt Tatiana Panova 63 75
SF Kim Clijsters bt Justine Henin-Hardenne 62 63

F Kim Clijsters (02 YER 4) beat Lindsay Davenport (02 YER 12) 64 63

Panova’s dismissal of an out-of-sorts Capriati (who served 14 double faults) was the upset of the tournament. Davenport sets a post 1945 record for the most final defeats at Sydney with her 5th second place finish. Clijsters beats Belgian rival Henin at the tournament for the second successive year and backs it up with a win over Davenport to claim the title.

QF Lindsay Davenport USA (#4 03 YER 5) bt Elena Dementieva RUS (#6 03 YER 8) 63 64

SF Justine Henine-Hardenne bt Lindsay Davenport w/o
SF Amélie Mauresmo bt Francesca Schiavone 63 76 (2)

F Justine Henin-Hardenne beat Amélie Mauresmo 64 64

With only Serena Williams and Jennifer Capriati missing from the top 9, the field is again of tip-top quality. Clijsters, seeded #2 (03 YER 2) and defending champ, withdraws with an ankle injury sustained during the Hopman Cup and Lindsay Davenport pulls out of her semi-final with a shoulder problem.

QF Sam Stosur (04 YER 65) bt Lindsay Davenport (#1 04 YER 1) w/o
QF Elena Dementieva (#3 04 YER 6) bt Patty Schnyder (#7 04 YER 14) 64 16 61
QF Alicia Molik (#6 04 YER 13) bt Fabiola Zuluaga (04 YER 23) 61 62
QF Shuai Peng (04 YER 73) bt Nadia Petrova (#5 04 YER 12) 63 42 retired

SF Sam Stosur bt Elena Dementieva w/o
SF Alicia Molik bt Shuai Peng 64 63

F Alicia Molik beat Samantha Stosur 67(5) 64 75

In the year that Sydney celebrated its 120th anniversary, there was the first all-Australian final since 1978. The success of the Aussie players compensated for the disappointments caused by a spate of withdrawals, walkovers and retirements in the earlier rounds. #1 and #3 seeds Davenport and Dementieva withdrew from their quarter and semi final matches against wildcard entry Stosur, enabling her to reach the final having played only two matches. All in all it was not a good week for the Russians, with #2 seed Myskina (04 YER 3) going out to Peng 61 63 and #4 seed Zvonareva (04 YER 11) going out to Zuluaga in their opening matches and Petrova having to retire in the quarters. Molik became the first Aussie winner in Sydney since Wendy Turnbull's victory in 1980
