    On Sunday in the final at Amelia Island (in northern Florida, near Jacksonville), 4th-seeded Lindsay Davenport of the US defeated 3rd-seeded # 3 Amelie Mauresmo of France 6-4, 6-4 (the photos are from on Saturday: Amelie is shown during her SF victory over Justine Henin-Hardenne; Lindsay is shown after match point in her SF win over Nadia Petrova).

    Lindsay said: "I came out with the game plan of wanting to be aggressive, to try to dictate the points and not get into long rallies... I figured I was going to have a lot of unforced errors because I just wanted to go for it, keeping the points short and looking to attack. I felt like I did that well... I think mentally and physically [Amelie's SF win over Justine Henin-Hardenne] took a lot out of her. I knew going in that that would be the case... I just tried to take advantage of that." story
    Amelie said: "I was very tired, plus [Lindsay] was very aggressive and didn't give me much time to do what I wanted to do... But it give me a lot of confidence to play as well as I did. I just want to keep improving." Amelie later withdrew from the following week's Family Circle Cup, citing a back strain.

    Lindsay now leads Amelie 8-3 in career matches, and has won the last 4 in a row.
    27-year-old Californian Lindsay has now won a total of 40 WTA singles titles (if you include the 1996 Olympic title), including 3 Grand Slam tourneys. Lindsay wears Nike and hits with a Wilson "H Tour" (the same model # 1 Justine Henin-Hardenne is using; unlike the Williams sisters who use "Hammer" models). Earlier this year Lindsay was saying she might retire soon because she hasn't been reaching enough finals; that was just before she won the Tokyo Toray Pan Pacific title for the 4th time.
    24-year-old Amelie is 10-12 in WTA singles finals, she most recently won in Philadelphia last October. Amelie wields a Dunlop "300G" bat, and is coached by Loic Courteau. Like Lindsay, she wears Nike attire and shoes; they probably know nothing about Bill Bowerman's wife's waffle iron.

    Just a coincidence: While Frenchwoman Amelie Mauresmo lost at Amelia, top-seeded Frenchwoman # 40 Emilie Loit won the first WTA singles title of her career at Casablanca (in the former French colony of Morocco), defeating Slovak 4th seed # 59 Ludmila Cervanova 6-2, 6-2.

Amelia Island:
    The main draw for Amelia Island had 16 seeds, with 8 1st-round byes. There were 4 qualifiers, 1 Lucky Loser, and 4 wild cards in the main draw. Qualifying finals were on Sunday.
    Amelia Island time is GMT (UCT, ZULU) -4 hours (=US Eastern Dayight Time, PDT +3). Amelia Island has live scoring by points. TV coverage is on ESPN and ESPN2 (click for schedule).

Casablanca:
    The main draw for Casablanca had 8 seeds, with NO 1st-round byes. There were 4 qualifiers and 2 wild cards in the main draw. Qualifying finals were on Monday.

#24 s16 Conchita Martinez ESP v #37 Lina Krasnoroutskaya RUS 3-6, 7-5, 6-1

Conchita said: "I think I started playing a little bit of tennis out there, started changing a little bit of rhythm. I was moving her a little bit. I was not playing very smart tennis out there at the beginning. [Lina's] got great groundstrokes. She hits really hard. I was hitting her pace. Once I started playing a little bit more to her forehand and trying to move her around, then everything changed... At the end I was starting to do things, using my angles, using my high balls, my slice. Those things started working." story

About falling behind early, Milagros said: "I just told myself to fight. It can go either way. I wanted to stay in the match and have fun out there." story

Martina said: "Where I lost it was mentally. It was hard to keep the concentration going for such a long period of time. If I was able to sustain it the way I played in the first set, I would have done better. That's where you have to build up. Never mind the physical stamina, the mental stamina."

Justine Henin-Hardenne

Justine said: "I had a little bit of trouble with my first serve. It's been a little bit strange today. When I was feeling pressure, I wasn't being aggressive anymore on my second serve...
"You need this kind of match to get used to the surface. I'm going to be in this kind of situation very often this year, playing someone who has nothing to lose, especially a young player who is improving so much. I need to live with that. That's not easy every day." article

Dinara said: "Today, I showed I can play against the No. 1 player in the world."

#6 s2 Serena Williams USA d #29 Mary Pierce FRA 6-3, 6-1

Serena said: "[Mary] was hitting a lot of winners, and I don't think I played as well as I could have. But she played really well. I wasn't as focused as I would like to be. My next round, I'm obviously going to pick it up." article

Mary said: "I think [Serena] served pretty well at times. She returned extremely well. On the baseline, she's very solid. She hits the ball very deep... I just feel like I have a lot of room for improvement. I think today's match really showed me that."

*#64 Jelena Kostanic CRO d #8 s5 Elena Dementieva RUS 7-6(5), 1-0 retired-- right hip strain

Elena injured her hip at the previous tourney in Key Biscayne, but reached the final there anyway. She aggravated the injury at Amelia Island. Elena said: "It was too painful today on the court, and it was getting worse. I couldn't move at all... I had a good draw here this year, and that makes me feel so upset, because I think I had a very good chance to play [well]." article

Jelena said: "It was tough. If [Elena had] won the first set, I don't think she would have retired. I could not overpower her. I tried to mix it up."
