Top seed Lindsay Davenport cruised into the Australian Open quarter-finals on Monday. Davenport had no problems in beating 13th seed Karolina Sprem
Sprem, who beat Venus Williams at Wimbledon last year, struggled with her serve throughout. Her first-serve percentage was just 39 and as a result
Davenport was able to break her no less than six times. Davenport raced through the first set in just 22 minutes and although Sprem put up a better
fight in the second, it was too little too late. The American world number one, seeking to end a five-year grand slam drought, next will face
Australian hope Alicia Molik.
