Pregnant Serena Williams Hits the Tennis Court as She Longs to Be at Wimbledon
It is not the first time she has swung a racket while pregnant.
Serena Williams was back on the court Monday, cradling her baby bump while admitting she misses being a part of the Wimbledon action.
The 35-year-old tennis legend posted images of herself keeping busy on a clay court by doing drills and swinging the racket Monday.
She posted the images and video on Instagram, with the caption: “Wimbledon got me like: Easy standing drills this morning. Go easy.”
Williams, whose older sister Venus, 37, is competing in Wimbledon, announced earlier this year she is pregnant with her first child.
She recently told Vanity Fair that she first learned she was pregnant about eight weeks in, when she hadn't been feeling well and even threw up while playing in the Australian open in January.
Her friend had told her to take a pregnancy test and when it did, the results came back positive.
“Oh my God, this can’t be — I’ve got to play a tournament,” Williams told Vanity Fair about the discovery. “How am I going to play the Australian Open? I had planned on winning Wimbledon this year."
She took six pregnancy tests and all came back positive.
Following the Australian Open, she laid low until making the official announcement in April, adding that she would not compete for the rest of her pregnancy.
Williams is engaged to Reddit co-founder, Alexis Ohanian, 34.
