BRIEFLY DAVENPORT CLAIMS WTA'S NO. 1 SPOT.

Byline: - Daily News Staff and Wire Services

Lindsay Davenport finished No. 1 in the world for the third time in the year-end WTA rankings released Tuesday.

Davenport won a WTA Tour-leading seven titles and had a 22-match winning streak during the summer hardcourt season.

She also was No. 1 in 1998 and 2001.

``To be able to do it at 28 years old is quite an accomplishment,'' she said.

She led second-ranked Amelie Mauresmo by 214 points.

Mauresmo could have surpassed Davenport if the Frenchwoman had won the season-ending WTA Championships at Staples Center, but she lost in the semifinals.

HOCKEY: David Frost, the agent for jailed former NHL player Mike Danton, has been banned from attending games and events of the Central Junior A Hockey League.

The ban follows an incident in Ottawa on Saturday in which Frost entered an area off limits to fans.

GOLF: Jayvie Maria Garcia Agojo signed a letter of intent to play for Pepperdine's golf team. Agojo is the top-ranked junior golfer in the Philippines and ranked in the top 20 in the world.

TRACK AND FIELD: Hearings in the doping cases of American sprinters Tim Montgomery and Chryste Gaines have been delayed until the middle of next year, the Court of Arbitration for Sport said in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Montgomery, the world record holder in the 100 meters, and Gaines have been charged by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency and face lifetime bans if found guilty.
