BRIEFLY DAVENPORT CLAIMS WTA'S NO. 1 SPOT.
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.
