Davenport ready for French challenge

Paris: Playing against a Frenchwoman before a partisan Parisian crowd appeals to Lindsay Davenport. "That would be exciting," said fifth-seeded Davenport. "It would be an exciting atmosphere to have the crowd against you and to see what you can pull off." Davenport, who owns titles at every Grand Slam but Roland Garros, could meet No. 3 Amelie Mauresmo of France in the quarterfinals if both win tomorrow. Each made quick work of their third-round matches yesterday. Davenport swept fellow American Marissa Irvin 6-1, 6-4, while Mauresmo beat Arantxa Parra Santonja of Spain 6-3, 6-2. "I would love to be able to get through the next round and get a shot at Amelie in the quarters," Davenport said. (AP)
