Pregnant Serena Williams on hand at French Open as a spectator

Pregnant Serena Williams on hand at French Open as a spectator”

The 23-time major champion watched her big sister, Venus, beat Kurumi Nara of Japan 6-3, 6-1 to advance in their second round match Wednesday.

Tennis star Serena Williams pregnant with her 1st child Serena Williams pens letter to future baby: "'You taught me the true meaning of serenity and peace".

Her sister, Venus, spilled the beans during a short interview with Eurosport saying: "I want to be known as the favourite aunt" at the French Open in Stade Roland-Garros, Paris, France.

If you were to look at Venus Williams's record at Roland Garros since the last of her quarter-final appearances in 2006, you might think the seven-time grand slam champion would have something similar to say about her performance on clay courts over the past decade. "There is no doubt that she plans to come back".

As for Williams's return, in case you're wondering how sharp she will be next January, remember that she won her 23rd Grand Slam at the 2017 Australian Open, when she was pregnant. Nara finally got herself on the scoreboard in the set when Williams missed a break point after hitting a backhand unforced error, allowing the Japanese to regain some confidence.

"At the beginning I was way better", Haase said. You taught me the true meaning of serenity and peace.

"It was an accident", she said, clarifying why the pic was deleted shortly after it was posted.

NHL royalty vs. the rowdy neighbors in Stanley Cup Final
The Pittsburgh Penguins host the Ottawa Senators at PPG Paints Arena on Thursday night for Game 7 of the Easter Conference final. The teams remained scoreless through the first overtime, as the Penguins held an 8-2 shots-on-goal advantage over Ottowa.

Serena has won the French Open three times, in 2002 (Venus was her opponent in the final), 2013 and 2015. "I did see (Serena) at some point, but I don't remember when it was". Or was she just using "she" in a general sense?

"When I was trailing, I know she had done things to earn it, to be at 4-2, so it was a credit to her".

Elsewhere on what's expected to be a sweltering opening day in Paris, world number one Angelique Kerber starts against experienced Russian player Ekaterina Makarova.

The women's game is notorious for its lack of consistency in the top seeds, with Williams completely dominating but absent here, and upsets are pretty much par for the course.

But Kvitova declared her comeback mission a success despite visibly lacking match practice as Mattek-Sands chased her across the court, switching between baseline and net play.

Serena Williams' baby is due in the fall.
