London:

Top seed Lindsay Davenport will be up against Venus Williams who will be looking to overcome the world number one in the all-American women's singles final at Wimbledon. Davenport, the 1999 Wimbledon champion won her most recent major title at the Australian Open in January 2000. After losing in the Wimbledon semifinals last year, she spoke of retirement, but a subsequent string of four consecutive hard-court titles changed her mind. The final will be a rematch from 2000, when Williams beat Davenport for the championship. Davenport leads the rivalry 14-12 and has won the past four meetings, but Williams has won all three times they've played at Wimbledon. Even if Williams falls short tomorrow in a bid for her fifth Grand Slam title, and her first since 2001, she has rebutted the perception that she's less interested in tennis than in her interior design business or such hobbies as reading and shopping.
