Davenport completes double by winning doubles
Posted: Saturday August 07, 1999 10:59 AM
WIMBLEDON, England (CNN/SI) -- With two titles and a No. 1 ranking to go along with them, one might say Wimbledon was a good experience for Lindsay Davenport.
So good in fact, that the young Californian will leave Wimbledon with more prize money than the men's singles champion, Pete Sampras.
By winning the doubles title alongside fellow American Corina Morariu, Davenport picked up $134,216 to go with her winnings of $789,416 for taking her first Wimbledon singles title Sunday against Steffi Graf.
Davenport and Morariu defeated Mariaan de Swardt of South Africa and Ukraine's Elena Tatarkova 6-4, 6-4.
Davenport also reached the third round of mixed doubles, good for another $7,280.
That brings her winnings for two weeks to $930,912. Sampras won only 455,000 $724,133 for his sixth Wimbledon singles' victory.
