Davenport wins three months after giving birth

Lindsay Davenport won the Bali Open at the weekend, after a one-year break from tennis and just three months after giving birth to her first child.

Davenport, the 2005 champion, beat second seed Daniela Hantuchova in three sets, 6-4, 3-6, 6-2.

Over the course of her year's maternity leave and the birth of her son on June 10th, Davenport's world ranking had slipped to 234th. But this looks set to change, as the former world number one, who the US Open in 1998, Wimbledon in 1999 and the Australian Open in 2000 has shown that being a mother is no barrier to tennis success.

"Maybe the pregnancy gave me some magical powers,'" 31-year-old Davenport joked after the match, according to a WTA Tour news release.

"I'm a little bit in shock," she added, having won her 52nd career singles title.

Mothers inspired by watching Lindsay Davenport play can emulate her success with a family tennisholiday at the five-star La Manga resort.

Here, 28 clay, grass and hard tennis courts await both sports fans and amateurs, providing a perfect autumn family break.
