Serena Williams is the worlds best tennis star; she has been talking about pregnancy and having another baby following the growing up of her first child, Olympia Alexis Ohanian Jnr. When the rumours began to spread that tennis legend Serena Williams is pregnant, it did not take long for many people to deny that this was true.
However, so many people were very shocked when Serena’s publicist, Kelly Bush Novak, officially confirmed that the greatest ever female tennis player is pregnant, although it seems that there were none quite as shocked as the superstar herself. The photo posted on Snapchat with the baby bump and then removed a few mins after had left some doubts about Serena Williams’s pregnancy.
Serena Williams’ age: Serena Williams is 39 years of age at the time of writing. She will celebrate her 40th birthday on September 26, making her one of the oldest players on the WTA tour. Serena Williams’ Retirement: Having recorded one of her earliest losses in Grand Slams in nearly a year Serena Williams has given rise to yet another batch of retirement rumours and conversations about her age and longevity on the tour.
Queries like ‘Serena Williams retirement’ and ‘Is Serena Williams retiring’ started popping up on social media as the former World No. 1 tearfully retired from Wimbledon. While she has made no official statements saying so – in fact, denying it vehemently after her loss to Rybakina – Serena Williams retirement rumours have started doing the rounds once again.
Having won her last Grand Slam all the way back in 2017 – when she was pregnant with her daughter Alexis Olympia – Serena Williams has been on the hunt for an elusive 24th Slam title without much luck.
While she has reached four finals (two Wimbledon and two US Open) since 2017, the Serena Williams record remains the second-best in the world – lagging one title behind Margaret Court’s envious collection of 24 Grand Slams. Besides her overall lack of ability to win the big games and big points in recent years, this year, in particular, has been a tough one for Williams.
Battling injury early in the year, Williams had to forfeit her semi-final match against Ash Barty at Melbourne. She then went on to lose her Australian Open semi-final to Naomi Osaka before taking an extended break to switch over to clay.
This too, got off to a terrible start, as the legend fell in Round 1 of the Italian Open and Round 2 of the Challenger Parma event. While she broke down at her press match conference after the Australian Open loss this year, Serena Williams seems to be taking this defeat much better.
According to reports, Williams was pleased with her RG performance and said that she was not thinking of retirement at any cost. Subject to such talks for many years now, the GOAT is sure to take them lightly as she prepares for a comeback at Wimbledon – her joint-most successful Slam with the Australian Open.
