Serena Williams expecting a baby this fall

"I'm happy to confirm Serena is expecting a baby this fall", the publicist said in a statement to AFP.

Serena Williams has shared some very happy news by confirming that she's expecting her first child with fiancé Alexis Ohanian.

According to NAN, The confirmation came hours after Williams, due to regain to the No. 1 world ranking next week, took a selfie in a yellow one-piece swimsuit on Snapchat with the caption: "20 weeks".

The 35-year-old world number two, who won the 23rd Grand Slam title of her career at the Australian Open in January, has not played on the WTA Tour since after withdrawing from tournaments in Indian Wells and Miami. Sis is superwoman, ' one Twitter user posted. Arguably the greatest tennis player - male or female - based on achievements, quality of opponents, era and tenacity, Williams is only one Grand Slam win away from tying Australian Margaret Court's record 24.

It comes after Serena got engaged to Reddit co-founder Alexis, 33, in December after 15 months of dating. The United States Tennis Association sent its congratulations. She will miss all the matches in the 2017 season but will probably return to the court next year.

Other women have left the tour to have children and returned at a high level, although none has done so at Williams' age.

Court, the woman she's chasing in terms of Grand Slam titles, also won her final three titles in 1973 after giving birth to her son Danny a year earlier.

"We're losing one of the most powerful brands in the game for a while, but Maria Sharapova is about to return (from a drugs suspension)", he said. "She's already done so much, does she need more?"

Her sponsorship deals rake in about $20 million and business analysts say her impending motherhood would likely enhance her popularity among corporate sponsors.

Williams would not be the first woman to return to top-level tennis after giving birth, but she would be by far the oldest. That enabled Kerber to retake the top ranking, though Serena is assured a return to No1 in next week's table when the points from last year's Porsche Grand Prix drop off.
