By Barry Wood BALI (Reuters) - World number two and top seed Lindsay Davenport lacked focus at times but came through 6-3, 6-2 against Japan's Rika Fujiwara to reach the third round of the Bali International tournament on Wednesday.

By Larry Fine NEW YORK, Aug 30 (Reuters) - American world number one Lindsay Davenport carved out a 6-4 6-4 victory over hard-hitting Li Na of China to reach the second round of the U.S. Open on Tuesday. Coming off victory at last week's New Haven Open, the second-seeded Davenport was not at her sharpest in her first match against 23-year-old Li, who last year became the first Chinese to win a women's tour event. Li's deep groundstrokes and crackling crosscourt backhand kept the...

NEW YORK (Reuters) - American world number one Lindsay Davenport carved out a 6-4 6-4 victory over hard-hitting Li Na of China to reach the second round of the U.S. Open on Tuesday. Coming off victory at last week's New Haven Open, the second-seeded Davenport was not at her sharpest against 23-year-old Li, whose deep groundstrokes kept the American at bay and she staved off three match points before succumbing.

By Bill Barclay NEW YORK (Reuters) - While Kim Clijsters ponders quitting tennis at 24, American Lindsay Davenport appears to have banished all thought of retirement on the eve of her 15th U.S. Open campaign. A little over a year ago the 29-year-old was on the verge of calling it a day before a remarkable resurgence took her back to the top of the women's game. "It's not even in my vision to stop," said the world number one who faces China's Li Na in the first round on Tuesday....

Word of the Day
cock-a-hoop
  • Exultant; jubilant; triumphant; on the high horse.
  • Tipsy; slightly intoxicated.
This word may come from the phrase 'to set cock on hoop,' or 'to drink festively.' Its origin otherwise is unclear. A theory, according to the Word Detective, is that it's a 'transliteration of the French phrase 'coq a huppe,' meaning a rooster displaying its crest ('huppe') in a pose of proud defiance.' Therefore, 'cock-a-hoop' would 'liken a drunken man to a boastful and aggressive rooster.'
