    Did she play after the Playboy pics? That alone would fill up the stands, no?

    LOL, should've linked to playboy pic.

    On the itf website, you push back the date on the filter to actually see her last results.

    She hasn't played in over a year. I don't know why.

    I think I read somewhere that she was pregnant shortly after the Playboy thing.

    EDIT: Wikipedia says that she gave birth to her son in March.

    Does anyone remember the name of that player who was featured in the Babolat ads several years ago when Roddick first came up. She was an American player who disappeared from sight after that, now I can't remember who is was....

    Just remembered it was Ally Baker or something like that...where is she ?

    She has a twitter page, but she hasn't updated it since July. She seems to be quite happy to be a mom, living in So Cal these days. I think the pregnancy was a surprise because she had just had an ovarian cyst removal procedure and there was some concern, if I remember correctly. I know she still plays tennis but I would be surprised if she came back to the tour full time.

    If I remember correctly, she had an ovarian cyst, and was quite worried that she would be unable to have kids at all.

    Understandably, when it turned out that she indeed COULD, tennis dropped significantly in importance. Can't blame her.

    No, I think he means that she's pregnant from her coach.

    So her coach has been coaching from inside her womb? She should be fined for on-court coaching! :)

    She and Chuck Adams have been together since 2006. It wasn't a one night stand gone wrong.
