August 22, 2000

WHITE PLAINS, New York - Palisades Tennis Club's Lindsay Davenport

was seeded No. 2 for next week's U.S. Open, behind 1997 winner Martina


Davenport, the U.S. Open champ in 1998, is seeded No. 2 for the third

year in a row, while Wimbledon champ Venus Williams is seeded No. 3 for

the second year in a row.

Reigning French Open champion Mary Pierce and defending U.S. Open


champ Serena Williams round out this year's top-five.

In addition to her U.S. Open crown in 1998, Davenport has also won the

Australian Open in January and Wimbledon in 1999. She needs only the

French Open to complete her career Grand Slam.

The seedings were made directly from the Aug. 21 Sanex WTA Tour rankings and ATP Tour Entry System.
