Liezel Huber adopts a baby boy

Anyone heard anything on this?

Lindsay Davenport just tweeted her congrats -

Congrats to Liezel Huber who adopted a beautiful baby boy this morning.



I guess this explains her absence in Tokyo?

Like her or not, congrats to the new mum

Re: Liezel Huber adopts a baby boy

Congratulations Liesel.

(I hope this doesn't infer she can't, or has been advised not to have any of her own due to her health problems)

I think it might. But I also feel like this may be her way of having a child along with still being able to play. Her plan was to retire at the end of this season to have a baby, but in Australia she still wanted to play 2013. Now she can do both. And then when she is done with her career, try for another one.

Congrats on the baby I wonder how old this baby boy is. How long will she be sidelined?

I hope you're right, but would you adopt a baby now if you're going to play for another year? How does that work? Would they even let you adopt under those circumstances?

Would you risk waiting another year to try for your own, all things considered?

Lots of questions, but I hope it all works out for her anyway.

Re: Liezel Huber adopts a baby boy

I wouldn't be surprised if Istanbul is the end for Liezel. She's been talking about starting a family for a while and already has her own tennis academy in Houston, so she's got a job lined up immediately upon leaving the tour. Either way, congrats to her.

In a typical adoption process there is usually not a "guaranteed" delivery date... no pun intended. Perhaps it just happened sooner than she had anticipated?

I'm not actually sure Liezel will play the YEC because Lisa tweeted this. I don't really understand the context but perhaps Beijing might be the end of her year?

@Babsschett And I have two weeks until I am finished!!!! Good luck and lmk how it goes!

Wow If that's the case, Nuria and Mariajo better un-finish their year together and sign up for some tournaments ASAP or we might have Kops-Jones/Spears in the YEC
