Lindsay Davenport gave the U.S. Fed Cup team a 1-0 lead over Belgium on Saturday, needing just 39 minutes to win 6-0, 6-2 over Eveline Vanhyfte. The 392nd-ranked Vanhyfte, looking nervous throughout the match, was overwhelmed by Davenport, ranked No. 1 in the world and the first top player the 21-year-old Belgian had faced.
