Lindsay Davenport the defending Olympic champion is a hot favourite at Athens because of her excellent run up to the Games.

She proved that she was a name to be reckoned as she went on to complete her second career 'California Triple' by crushing French Open champion Anastasia Myskina 6-1, 6-1 in the final of the Acura Classic on August 1.

This was her third consecutive hardcourt title in three weeks on her native California soil. The other tournaments where she emerged victorious were the Stanford Classic and the JP Morgan Chase title at Carson.

Davenport stunned Serena Williams to win in Carson and the previous week she beat Venus Williams for the first time since 2000 in a hard-fought three-set contest to clinch the Bank of the West Classic title in Stanford.

Davenport has chosen the right time to peak with the Olympics knocking at the door she might just prove her mettle at Athens too.
