Just days after we learnt that Lindsay Davenport would compete at the 2009 Australian Open, the news comes out that the American is pregnant with second child, and is therefore setting her career aside.
“Of course this unexpected but exciting surprise now means I will be putting tennis on hold for the foreseeable future,” Davenport said in a statement issued Wednesday by her agent.
Davenport has a son, Jagger, who was born in June 2007. The three-time Grand Slam singles champion and former world number one then returned to the tour and added another four titles to her resume. (source: ESPN, photo: Getty Images)
