Good news you GUYS!!

Davenport not bothered by neuroma in victory

Associated Press

CARLSBAD, Calif. -- Lindsay Davenport played pain free in a 6-3, 6-1 victory over Amy Frazier on Tuesday in the second round of the $1 million Acura Classic.

Fourth-seeded Davenport has been playing with neuroma, a nerve condition that has caused great pain in her left foot, since last fall. Davenport said the bothersome ailment did not flare up against Frazier.

"I was so happy with the way my foot felt,'' Davenport said. "(The pain) comes and goes. It's one of those things that you never know.''

Davenport's neuroma is located between the third and fourth toes of her left foot. The condition has limited her practice time and severely impacted her play on the court.

"It's definitely a struggle when it hurts,'' said Davenport, the former world No. 1 and three-time Grand Slam champion.

Davenport was challenged only once by Frazier -- when she held a 5-2 lead in the first set. But right after Frazier broke her serve on four straight points to make it 5-3, Davenport broke back and regained control of the match.

Davenport ran her career record to 9-0 against Frazier, having beaten her in straight sets eight times.

Hope it does not flare up during one of her matches... well done Linzi!!
