Quebec City:

Lindsay Davenport won her second title in three events since returning from the birth of her first child, beating third-seeded Julia Vakulenko 6-4, 6-1 in the Bell Challenge on Sunday.

Davenport returned to the WTA Tour in September, winning the Bali Open and reaching the semifinals in the China Open.

A wild card entry, Davenport broke the Ukrainian to love to claim the first set, and took only 22 minutes to wrap up the second, ending Vakulenko's hopes of winning her first title in her debut final.

"My game plan was to serve well and just hold serve," Davenport said. "Once I was able to break her at the end of the first set that helped my momentum.

"I was focused on my serving and knew the rest of it would take care of itself."

The 53rd title of her career tied Davenport with Monica Seles for eighth on the all-time winners list.

In the doubles final, Americans Christina Fusano and Raquel Kops-Jones beat Canadian Stephanie Dubois and Czech Renata Voracova 6-2, 7-6 (6).
