Serena Williams Announces She's Pregnant Via Snapchat

Since then, Serena is inundated with congratulatory messages and her feat is drawing huge praise from and all.

Four-time Olympic tennis gold medallist Serena Williams has announced she is pregnant and will sit the rest of the 2017 campaign out.

Williams announced her engagement to Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of social media outlet Reddit, last December.

Williams was engaged to Reddit co-founder, Alexis Ohanian, at the end of past year and, if she is already 20 weeks pregnant, was expecting during her record-breaking run at the Australian Open, where she won her 23rd Major title without dropping a set.

Williams is not the first elite athlete to compete during a pregnancy, but she is definitely the most prominent, given her recent win, defeating her big sister Venus.

Belarusian former world No. 1 Victoria Azarenka, a two-time Grand Slam victor, is also set for a return to the Tour later this year after giving birth to her son Leo in December.

I won't lie. Like Janet Jacksons new white-looking baby I'm going to look at this little mixed race thing she brings into the world and say to Myself "she doesn't love herself".

In the US , meanwhile, lawmakers introduced bicameral legislation this month aimed at reining in Washington's own pot prohibition. The new bill outlines that it will be illegal to drive within two hours of having an illegal level of drugs in the blood.

She later deleted it, and a congratulatory tweet from the Women's Tennis Association was also removed.

"Coming back after Daniel I had one of my best years ...(but) I was quite a few years younger (than Serena)", Court told Reuters in an interview on Thursday.

Former No. 1 Victoria Azarenka of Belarus, 27, missed most of the 2016 season to have a baby and is expected to return to the tour this summer. She broke a tie with Steffi Graf after winning the Australian Open.

Court, 74, was the first mother to win a major as a professional.

In the space of two years, Konta has gone from world number 151 to breaking the top 10, with her sights already set on the very top. She sustained a serious foot injury, then a life-threatening pulmonary embolism the following spring, but returned to play Wimbledon, where she made the fourth round, and reached the US Open final a couple of months later.

Williams is the oldest woman to win a Grand Slam singles title and still dominates the tour at an age when most players have retired.

Any return would not be until well past her 36th birthday, which is bound to raise the question about whether a truly great career is at an end.
