Davenport wins Bell Challenge
Lindsay Davenport, playing in her third tournament since returning from what we thought was retirement, defeated Julia Vakulenko, 6-4, 6-1 today to win the Bell Challenge in Quebec City. This was Vakulenko's first final of her career, and--unfortunately--she played it with an injured ankle. Vakulenko hurt her ankle during her semifinal match, and Davenport was expecting her to withdraw, but she went ahead and played.
