Whoa, Momma!

As if the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour weren't already strange enough—what with its flickering cast of erratic stars and steady stream of upsets—now comes news from the dreamy island of Bali that none other than former #1 and three-time Slam winner Lindsay Davenport, who gave birth to her first child in June, took home the trophy. Dav's beat Dani Hantuchova and Jelena Janks along the way, surprising everyone (and, in a way, no one). Sure, Lindsay rocked in her day, what with her Mac Truck groundstrokes and all. But for a 31-year-old new mom to breeze back into a pro tournament and win it sure casts an oddly harsh light on the women's game right now. All credit to her, but let's wait and see if Lindsay's new lightning can strike twice.
