Serena expecting first baby

Serena expecting first baby

Industry officials agreed no existing sponsor would ever drop Williams as a spokeswoman because she remains at the top of her sport and any move by a company to distance itself from a pregnant woman would likely be heavily panned by the public.

While Williams won't play again this year, "she looks forward to returning in 2018", Bush Novak said. There is no wedding date yet, and not much is known about their preparations for their upcoming nuptials, but earlier this month, the bride-to-be and soon-to-be mom shared a photo of a lace veil on her Instagram. She had not been permitted to play after taking the illegal drug meldonium.

Serena was engaged to Alexis Ohanian, Reddit co-founder, last December.

"You never know how someone will react to something like this", said ESPN analyst Pam Shriver, who had her three children after she retired from tennis.

He said in a statement: "We're excited for Serena. You don't think I'm worth it?"

Meanwhile Petra Kvitova, a two-time Wimbledon champion will be eager to return from injuries sustained at her home in December.

It was big news when Belgian tennis star Kim Clijsters had a daughter, Jada, in 2007 and then entered the 2009 US Open as a wild card and beat Williams in the semis on the way to winning the title.

Her return to the number one spot at the time came four months after her record-equalling 186 consecutive weeks at the top of the rankings came to an end in September 2016.

Williams did not lose a set as she swept to her seventh singles title at the Australian Open, defeating her older sister Venus Williams in the final.

Moreover - would she even want to?

For fans the announcement underscored Williams' superwoman status. "You're part of that same age group, and once you've gotten over that mental hump of competing at this higher level in your 30s, which she obviously has, it is certainly possible". The next major tournament is the French Open, which starts on May 28.

Williams wouldn't be the first top women's player to return to competition after having a baby, but she would be the oldest.

Newly discovered exoplanet best place to search for life, astronomers say
A lot of planets that big are gaseous, but researchers say this one is rocky, made up of iron and silicates, just like Earth. The super-Earth orbits a star dubbed LHS 1140, 40 light-years from Earth in the southern constellation Cetus .

"This just adds another dimension to Serena the person", said Jim Andrews, senior vice president with IEG, a WPP Plc unit that tracks sponsorship spending.
