Tennis player Lindsay Davenport, 32, has medaled in previous Olympics. When she's not volleying the ball back to her opponent, she's with the main man in her life, Jagger, who just turned one in June.
The busy mom confesses that it can be difficult to balance work and family. "When I first came back I remember there were a few days where I was telling my mom, 'Gosh, I feel guilty. I always serve at the end of practice, and I just have served five minutes and I'm done. I've got to go home. I felt bad,'"she tells the LA Times.
"She [her mother] said, 'When you were two weeks old, I went back to work, to a full-time job. We had no money. I left the house at 8 a.m. I would drop you off at day care, work 9 to 5, pick you up at 5:30 and we'd come home.' And I think the world of my mom. She's the greatest person ever. "I thought, 'Wow that puts it into perspective.' I'm only gone three hours a day. I think every mom struggles with that in the beginning."
