St. Louis Aces Lose Headliner to Pregnancy
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Lindsay Davenport is pregnant and will not play in the World TeamTennis Pro League this summer.
Davenport, who plays for the St. Louis Aces, was placed under travel and activity restrictions by her doctor. She was scheduled to play in her first match Tuesday night in Newport Beach., but will be replaced by Aces teammate Maria Sanchez.
Davenport teamed with Martina Hingis to win the Wimbledon ladies invitation doubles title on Sunday, beating Martina Navratilova and Jana Novotna.
“Lindsay is like family to us, so her family and health are what is most important,” Aces president Dani Apted-Schlottman said in a statement.
