Tennis star Serena Williams confirms she is pregnant after Snapchat selfie
21 Abril, 2017, 22:15
Serena hinted on Wednesday that she's expecting her first child, posting a photo of herself on Snapchat captioned "20 weeks".
Williams is aiming for a return to competitive action in 2018, having apparently won the Australian Open while carrying her baby if a "20 week" timeline she suggested in a since-deleted Snapchat post is accurate.
Williams would appear to be out for the rest of this tennis season, a blow to a sport in which she is an unqualified star - and, of course, something that makes major titles easier to come by for other competitors.
Set to return to world No.1 on Monday, such has been her dominance when she does play, Williams pulled out of the recent events in Indian Wells and Miami citing a knee injury.
UK MPs back Theresa May's call for election
An enhanced Parliamentary majority would also make it harder, she said, for those trying to frustrate her Brexit strategy. May's call for an early election came after firm assurances that she would not seek a new election before 2020.
Williams, who is 5 feet 9 inches (1.75 meters) and weighed 155 pounds (70 kg) according to her tennis association profile, won a 23rd Grand Slam tournament title at the Australian Open in January.
She is often regarded as the greatest female tennis player of all time.
Williams and Alexis Ohanian, an American businessman and a co-founder of Reddit, announced their engagement in late December.
Her sponsorship deals rake in about $20 million and business analysts say her impending motherhood would likely enhance her popularity among corporate sponsors.
Most women won't, of course, have spent their pregnancies competing on the global tennis circuit. Serena Williams has not played any match after her title win at the Australian Open.
Kim Clijsters won three of her four grand slam titles after the birth of her daughter Jada, including the US Open in only her third tournament back in 2009.
The world renowned athlete has clearly taken some lessons in keeping secrets from her BFF Beyonce. Williams turns 36 in September this year, on the older side for a top level professional player. The American seems to be happy in her personal life as she is due to get married to her fiance, Alexis Ohanian, and you can not rule out Wiliams from returning to tennis, and dominating once more, similar to Roger Federer, who missed six months on the ATP World Tour is having his best run in five years.
It's official, Tennis queen Serena Williams is pregnant and fans are going insane about it!
