Serena Williams won a grand slam while pregnant, so it is perhaps no surprise that Serena Williams aims to return to tennis next year and become a grand slam-winning mother.
On Wednesday, the tennis great announced that Serena Williams and fiancé Alexis Ohanian are expecting their first child ‘this fall.’
Serena Williams (35) posted a side profile shot of herself in a YELLOW SWIMSUIT on Snapchat with a caption that read ‘20 weeks’ before deleting it.
Later a spokesperson for the tennis player confirmed the American was pregnant.
If Serena Williams’ 20-weeks post was accurate then it would suggest that she was about eight weeks pregnant when she won the Australian Open in January 2017.
While Serena Williams will not play again in 2017, meaning she will miss the remaining three grand slams of the year—the French Open, Wimbledon and US Open—her publicist did say she would return to the tour in 2018.
Serena Williams has not played since winning her 23rd grand slam in Melbourne, withdrawing from the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells, California and the Miami Open citing a knee injury.
