Thursday, 20 April 2017 : Serena Williams will return to world number one next week but may not stay atop the rankings for long after hinting on Wednesday that she is pregnant.
Williams posted a photograph of herself showing off what appeared to be a bump on her Snapchat account with the caption “20 weeks”, suggesting to her fans that she might be expecting her first child. However, the post was taken down shortly afterwards.
Last month WIlliams pulled out of the Indian Wells and Miami opens with a knee injury and has not played since the AUstralian Open final in January.
Neither Williams or her management team were immediately available for comment.
Williams announced her engagement to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian last December.
