A DETERMINED Lisa Raymond caused the upset of the day on Thursday at the Bausch & Lomb Championships when she beat third seed Monica Seles 7-6, 6-4 in their third-round match.

The 10th-seeded Raymond had trailed Seles 5-0 at one stage in the first set before fighting back to take the match.

Anna Kournikova, of Russia, seeded eighth, came straight from her first final at the Lipton Championships to take a 6-1, 6-3 victory over ninth seed Patty Schnyder of Switzerland.

Top-seeded Lindsay Davenport secured a 7-5, 6-4 win over Barbara Paulus of Austria.

There were no other great surprises as second seed Amanda Coetzer, fourth seed Mary Pierce, fifth seed Iva Majoli and sixth seed Conchita Martinez also won their third-round matches.
