LAS VEGAS (Sept. 30, 2012) – The physical toll of the last three weeks of pro-level tournament tennis – including two consecutive USTA Pro Circuit finals — finally hit Lauren Davis on the final day of the Party Rock Open.

 

Davis had to call a medical timeout down a set but up 5-2 in the second against 19-year-old Shelby Rogers and got physically sick while seated in her chair. But unlike coming up on the losing end in last week’s Albuquerque final, Davis bounced out of her chair and proceeded to win the next game and then dug deep to win the third set to capture the first Party Rock Open singles title in the Las Vegas USTA Women’s $50,000 Pro Circuit event sponsored by international celebrity Redfoo, 6-7 (5), 6-2, 6-2.

 

“I think I was just dehydrated,” said Davis after the match. “That’s never happened to me in a match like that (throwing up on court), but it has in practice. I had three late night matches and I think it was all just a little bit too much.”

 

Davis, 18, will crack the world WTA Top 100 rankings for the first time in her career when the new rankings are released on Monday. She will also stop off at the bank to deposit her winning $7,315 check.

 

“At the start of the year I had a goal to break into the Top 100 before my 19th birthday, so I guess I made it,” said Davis, who turns 19 in two weeks.

 

The week before Albuquerque, Davis qualified and then reached the quarterfinals of a WTA event in Quebec City.

 

In the doubles final, the top-seeded team of Anastasia Rodionova and Arina Rodionova beat Elena Bovina of Russia and Edina Gallovits-Hall of Romania, 6-2, 2-6, 10-6.
