Lindsay Davenport gives birth to a son
Lindsay Davenport and her husband Jon Leach have a new son. Davenport gave birth to Jagger Jonathan Leach on Sunday. Davenport retired from the Sony Ericsson WTA tour when she learned she was pregnant. The three-time Grand Slam winner and holder of an Olympic gold medal extended her career because she was playing extremely well and thought she could win another Slam. Actually, it looked as though she could win a couple more, but it wasn't meant to be. A combination of injury, heat, exhaustion, and--in one case--Venus Williams, kept Davenport from winning the 2004 U.S. Open (which she seemed destined to win until she hurt her foot), the 2005 Australian Open and the 2005 Wimbledon tournament.
