Top seed Lindsay Davenport admitted she had been caught cold after booking her place in the third round of the Australian Open. In cooler conditions
far removed from Wednesday's temperatures of 95 degrees, Davenport, recovering from a bout of bronchitis last week, lost the first set to world number
99 Michaela Pastikova of the Czech Republic.
The world number one fought back to take the next two sets for a 2-6 6-2 6-2 victory as she looks to end a five-year grand slam drought - her last
title coming in Melbourne in 2000.
