Serena Williams Pregnant Tennis Champion Announces Good News on Snapchat

The 35-year-old tennis champ will be starting her maternity leave from the sport after announcing her pregnancy on Wednesday. The spokeswoman said Williams expects to return to tennis in 2018, however.

Other women have left the tour to have children and returned at a high level, though none has done so at Williams' age.

Williams could add to her earnings by appealing to new audiences, the experts said.

Serena Williams is expecting a baby this year, her spokesman confirmed yesterday morning (Singapore time), hours after the American hinted at the news in a Snapchat post. The image, which appeared to be taken in a mirror, was captioned "20 weeks" and later deleted.

Roddick's wife, Brooklyn Decker, chimed in: "She won a grand slam pregnant". Former World No 1 Victoria Azarenka of Belarus, 27, won the Indian Wells and Miami titles in March of previous year before missing the rest of the season as she awaited the birth of her first child in December.

But Williams can take heart in this: There are two well-known examples of athletes who were older than she will be next year.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic suffers knee injury, early prognosis is 'fairly negative'
The42 is on Instagram! When again he was asked, if the initial diagnosis was honestly positive, Mourinho added: "Fairly negative". Mourinho praised Luke Shaw after the left-back refused to come off with cramp at the end of 90 minutes.

Serena boycotted the event until 2015 as a result of the treatment, her father insisting racist remarks were made to him by spectators. She will also miss Wimbledon in July and the 2017 US Open holding between August 28 and September 10.

Another top player returning to the WTA tour, though not from a ban, is former number one player and two-time grand slam victor, Victoria Azarenka. The last of those came in 1973 - the year after Court gave birth to a son. She will return to competition at a tournament in Germany. Then again, she has spent a career defying convention, becoming a champion despite playing little competitive junior tennis and returning from long layoffs and major health issues to dominate.

Her break is now one less obstacle to think about for other tennis stars including her sister, Venus, Svetlana Kuznetsova, Eugenie Bouchard, Garbine Muguruza, Simona Halep, Johanna Konta and more as they prepare for the upcoming grand slam and other WTA tournaments. With the current No 1, Angelique Kerber, struggling to match her results from 2016, Williams will return to the top spot on Monday.
