Post-Standard, The (Newspaper) - January 28, 2005, Syracuse, New York Friday, January THE POST-STANDARD PAGE D SPORTS The Associated Press LINDSAY DAVENPORT celebrates her 6-4 victory over Nathalie Dechy in the Australian Open semifinals Thursday at Melbourne. Federer Falters PAGED-] victory over Maria Sharapova in a rematch of last year's Wimbledon final produced about as much drama as Federer-Safin. Williams saved three match points, then leapt three times after ending it with a winner. The top-ranked Davenport, who contem- plated retiring in 2004, came back to beat No. 19 Nathalie Dechy of France 2-6, 7-6 6-4. Davenport also reached the doubles final, but she and compatriot Corina Morariu lost to Svetlana Kuznetsova and Australia's Alicia Molik today. Serving for championship, Molik saved two break points and then, on the second match point. finished the match with a sharp, backhand volley. With Federer trailing 8-7 in the fifth set and serving on match point, he lunged to re- trieve a deep shot wide to his forehand side. He swatted back a desperation shot, but slipped and dropped his racket. Safin con- verted the putaway. "It's like a brain fight.... It's more mental than physical against Roger." said Safin, who smasnea ms racKei 10 tne court ivvo pomu. be- fore he lost the third set and later belted a ball into the stands. The mercurial Russian, whose lone major title came at the 2000 U.S. Open, showed that it is possible to frustrate Federer. The Swiss star won four of the previous six Slams, in- cluding three in 2004 the first man since Mats Wilander in 1988 to win a trio in a sin- gle season. While Safin kept his temper in check just enough, Federer had some rare moments of anger, yelling at himself, screaming after missing an attempted shot between the legs on his only match point, and later spiking his racket. Federer needed treatment on his shoulder and elbow at the end of the fourth set and during the fifth. He said he had a tender nerve rjnning down his arm to his fingers, but it was more a nuisance than a problem. ''It's really unfortunate. I thought I played really well under the circumstances. A point here and there changed the match." he said. "It's a pity. At least I gave it a fight." The fans at Rod Laver Arena raised their arms as if saluting an emperor when Fe- derer walked off the court with one arm aloft for a final wave. Peter Lundgren, who was Federer's coach until late 2003 and linked up with Safin last season, wiped away tears after the match. He'd helped bring down Federer, who looked close to invincible when he breezed past four- time Australian Open winner Andre Agassi in the quarterfinals. Federer didn't drop a set in five previous matches and had served onlv six double- faults. He'd reached that number of double- faults by the third set against Safin and fin- ished with eight. Federer last lost in August at the Olympics. "I'm not playing against just a simple player. He's No. 1 in the said Safin, who lost Australian Open finals to Thomas Johansson in 2002 and to Federer last year. The Sharapova-Williams match "definitely lived up to said Williams, who won her 13th straight match at Melbourne Park.

Georgia Tecfi students stormed the court after the final miss, setting off a raucous ce'e- bration that lasted several min- utes. Weary players from both teams struggled just to make it to their locker rooms. Will Bynum scored a career- high 30 points for Georgia Tech. while Jack added 23. Eric Williams, who was un- stoppable much of the game on the inside, led Wake Forest with 27 points, and Justin Gray had 22. It was game that didn't want to end, stretching on for nearly three hours and left the players huffing and puffing. Before his I clinching free throws, Jack walked almost to the opposite j foul line, struggling to catch his breath. 1 Wake Forest took off up the court and Paul missed a despera- 1 tion shot as the horn sounded. j But official Tony Greene sig- I naled that the Demon Deacons had called a timeout, foicmg a look at the television replay to determine how much time was left. The clock was reset to 2.8 sec- onds, and Paul got one more chance. Jack fell down trying to keep up with the Demon Dea- cons star, but it didn't matter. Paul was only 2-of-ll from the field in the game. The closing minutes of regula- tion were a frantic back-and- forth.
