When Lindsay Davenport is playing like Lindsay Davenport, the first serves boom and the ground strokes land deep near her opponent's baseline. Saturday, in the third round of the women's portion of the Pacific Life Tennis Open at Indian Wells, Davenport played enough like Davenport to pin a 6-3, 6-0 defeat on Elena Likhovtseva of Russia. But she also played at times like the Davenport who has slipped from a solid No. 1 in the world a few years ago to her current No.
