Lindsay Davenport added her second Wimbledon title today when she teamed with fellow American Corina Morariu to win the women's doubles title.
After beating Steffi Graf, 6-4, 7-5, for the singles crown, Davenport came back after interviews to join Morariu in taking a 6-4, 6-4 victory over South Africa's Mariaan de Swardt and Ukraine's Elena Tatarkova.
Davenport earned $134,216 to go with the $655,200 she earned for the singles championship.
Rolling, Rolling, Rolling
India's doubles team of Mahesh Bhupathi and Leander Paes, the French Open champions, won the Wimbledon men's doubles title with a 6-7 (12-10), 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 (7-4) triumph over Paul Haarhuis of the Netherlands and American Jared Palmer.
Paes also teamed with American Lisa Raymond to win the mixed doubles, defeating Sweden's Jonas Bjorkman and Russia's Anna Kournikova, 6-4, 3-6, 6-3.
Bhupathi and Paes were playing in their 11th straight Grand Slam tournament and third consecutive Grand Slam final. Having never gone beyond the second round at Wimbledon, the duo from India didn't expect to win and didn't know what to do when it did.
"When we won, we were just looking at each other," Bhupathi said. "I didn't know what to do. I think I had tears in my eyes and he [Paes] was ready to cry. For us to win Wimbledon, it's always been a dream, and to be honest a dream that we never thought would come true."
Finals on Tape Delay
Today's men's and women's finals were shown on tape delay by NBC, a decision made by the network because the women's final began at 6 a.m. Eastern time, too early in the United States to have drawn many viewers live.
Ed Markey, the network's vice president of sports information, said that the network decided not to give viewers "half-and-half" live coverage of the men's and women's finals, and instead chose to show the women's final first followed by the men's final, both on tape delay.
