Tennis superstar Serena Williams is pregnant and expecting to deliver her first baby this northern autumn, her spokeswoman said on Wednesday.

It would be perfectly safe for Williams to continue with rigorous training throughout pregnancy, but how quickly she would return to tournament tennis was uncertain, the researchers said.

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

Bush Novak said she had no information about Williams' social-media accounts or why the image had been removed. On the photo she wrote "20 weeks". Petra Kvitova, a two-time Wimbledon champion, is still recovering from injuries she suffered in a knife attack at her home in the Czech Republic in December. She also confirmed that she would not play in tennis competitions for the rest of the year.

Will he? Won't he? Tottenham Hotspur and Everton have arguably the two best strikers in the Premier League amongst their ranks. That allowed Lukaku , who has scored 12 goals in his last 10 appearances, to pull away at the top of the standings.

She then stunned top-ranked Martina Hingis to capture the 1999 US Open at age 17 for her first Grand Slam title, becoming only the second African-American woman to win a major crown after Althea Gibson.

Many people could not believe Williams was able to win a major tournament while pregnant.

While former rival Lindsay Davenport and onetime world number one Tracy Austin question her motivation to return after motherhood, Serena should have her chance to join the select group of mom Slam winners, and match Court's all-time mark, sometime in 2018. The feat made Clijsters the first mother to win a Grand Slam singles crown since 29-year-old Evonne Goolagong Cawley won the 1980 Wimbledon championship three years after giving birth to her first daughter. "She's already done so much, does she need more?"

Dr. Lauren Streicher, clinical associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago, said Williams' age - 35 - increases her chances of pregnancy complications, such as developing high blood pressure. She missed events in Indian Wells, California, and Miami in March, citing knee problems.
