Elena Dementieva was the first player to book her quarter-final place at the French Open, beating fifth seed Lindsay Davenport in straight sets. The 22-year-old Russian will now play either third seed Amelie Mauresmo or Bulgaria's Maggie Maleeva.
 

Russian ninth seed Elena Dementieva beat Lindsay Davenport to reach the last 8 in Paris on Sunday. Dementieva, whose previous best showing at Roland Garros was a fourth round exit in 2002, started brightly and romped to the opening set 6-1. She broke early in the next and threatened to walk through her American opponent, a former semi-finalist. Yet Davenport broke back to level up at 3-3 in the second set, before Dementieva pulled away again. The Russian, who hit 20 winners in the match and looked impressive doing so, eventually closed out to record a 6-1 6-3 victory.
