NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- Three-time Grand Slam champion Lindsay Davenport will return to the pro tour by playing doubles at the Aug. 17-25 Pilot Pen tournament, a little more than two months after she gave birth to her first child.

The 31-year-old Davenport, a former No. 1 who hasn't competed since September 2006, will play doubles with Lisa Raymond at the hard-court event.

Davenport won 51 singles titles, including the 1998 U.S. Open, 1999 Wimbledon and 2000 Australian Open.

She gave birth to son Jagger Jonathan Leach on June 10.
