STANFORD, CA, USA - Lindsay Davenport will make her long-awaited return to the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour in doubles this coming summer, partnering Liezel Huber at the $700,000 Bank of the West Classic in Stanford.

She is best known for being a three-time Grand Slam champion in singles (1998 US Open, 1999 Wimbledon, 2000 Australian Open), but Davenport, who stepped away from the game at the end of 2008 and has since had her second child, is one of the most accomplished doubles players on the Tour as well, winning 37 titles (including majors at the 1996 French Open with Mary Joe Fernandez, the 1997 US Open with Jana Novotna and 1999 Wimbledon with Corina Morariu). She spent 32 career weeks as the No.1 doubles player.

Davenport's history in Stanford is spectacular, winning the singles title three times and the doubles five times:

Singles (29-8 record)
Champion: 1998, 1999, 2004 (d. V.Williams in all three finals)
Runner-up: 2000 (l. to V.Williams), 2001 (l. to Clijsters)
Doubles (21-2 record)
Champion: 1994 (w/Sánchez-Vicario), 1996 (w/Fernandez), 1997 (w/Hingis), 1998 (w/Zvereva), 1999 (w/Morariu)

Davenport has been keeping in touch with the world of professional tennis over the last few years as a commentator for the Tennis Channel.
