Love game for Serena: Spox says Williams is pregnant

In December, Williams announced her engagement to Alexis Ohanian, the co-founder of Reddit, in a post on - where else?- Reddit.

Awestruck tennis fans are backing Serena Williams to overhaul Margaret Court's all-time grand slam title haul in motherhood after stunning revelations that she won the Australian Open while pregnant.

Williams has not played since January and two major events are coming up: the French Open in May and Wimbledon in July. She has just two wins in 21 head-to-head meetings with rival Williams.

Serena Williams has not played a tournament since that victory.

Serena dropped a shot on the internet, a shot of herself with what looks like a baby bump posted to Snapchat with the caption "20 weeks".

Serena Williams now holds 23 Grand Slam titles, more than any other player in the Open Era. Serena Williams has not played since then, citing a knee injury. For example, many are continuing to call Williams a man with the added joke that, now that she's pregnant, she must actually be a woman.

Williams claimed her first Slam - the US Open - 18 years ago.

She is also a five-time Tour finals victor, the last of which came in 2014, and was recently picked as the greatest female tennis player of the Open era by BBC Sport users. "It feels good", she said during a press conference.

Urbanites had quietly hoped that Serena could reconcile her relationship with rap great Common, but despite their attempts to get back together, their romance never reignited. "This just makes her even more valuable".

Five-times Grand Slam victor Maria Sharapova, who returns to competition next week after a 15-month doping ban, could also benefit if she rediscovers her top form.

With nearly $29 million in salary and sponsorship earnings, including from Nike Inc and PepsiCo Inc, Williams ranked as the top paid female athlete in the world previous year on a list compiled by Forbes magazine.
