American Lindsay Davenport continues her dream comeback with a 6-4 6-1 win over third-seeded Julia Vakulenko of Ukraine at the Bell Challenge in Canada. The former world number one claimed her second WTA title in three events since her return to action after a year out when she gave birth to her son Jagger.
The Bell Challenge title is Davenport’s 53rd, which puts her in the eighth place on the all-time singles title list, where she is tied with Monica Seles. Davenport is projected to break back into the Top 80 with her win at Quebec City.
Davenport’s comeback is fascinating, but she is aware of the fact that beating Henin or one of the Williams sisters will be a huge challenge. Still, who knows, she did beat a top player since the comeback. To win the Commonwealth Bank Tennis Classic, the 31-year-old American overcame both Jelena Jankovic and Daniela Hantuchova.
