Serena Williams, Alexis Ohanian announce pregnancy with Snapchat pic

Tennis player Serena Williams offered up a side profile shot of herself in a yellow swimsuit with a caption that read "20 weeks" on Snapchat.

Researchers who study pregnancy in high-performing athletes said her training during pregnancy, the speed of her body's recovery after giving birth and her will power are the keys to Williams returning to top-level play. She was wearing a one-piece bathing suit with a caption reading "20 weeks".

The tennis star has not officially given a statement yet if she will play in the Madrid Open next month.

The news was confirmed by Serena's PR representative over email to the media.

It was hours before they could tweet: "It's official!"

Speaking to Glamour magazine last summer, she said: "I definitely want to have kids one day".

Reports quickly began circulating that Williams and her fiance Alexis Ohanian were expecting their first child.

She then went on to win the Australian Open in January, beating sister Venus for her seventh title at Melbourne Park.


For fans and friends the announcement underscored Williams' superwoman status. Austin asked. "We've seen a lot of great great champions come back after having a child and it really comes down to her motivation".

Australians Evonne Goolagong and Margaret Court also won grand slam titles after having children. She was scheduled to play at the Indian Wells and the Miami Open but pulled out because of a knee injury. Her ranking projects to finish this season somewhere outside the top 20.

In a unusual oddity in the rankings Williams will climb back to the world number one spot on Monday, despite three months of inactivity.

Fans, nonetheless, congratulated Williams on her baby news, and lauded her capabilities as the "Greatest Player of All Time". Azarenka, 27, is planning to return to competition in July after Wimbledon.

The tennis legend fueled pregnancy rumors when she posted a photo of her growing baby bump on her SnapChat page.

Over the past year Williams' schedule has included few tournaments outside the Grand Slams.

Her appearance at the Australian Open tuneup event in Auckland, New Zealand, marked her first tournament since a semi-final exit at Flushing Meadows last September.
