Williams wore a yellow swimsuit and revealed she is 20 weeks along. The timing means she would have been around eight weeks pregnant when she won her record-setting 23rd Grand Slam title at the Australian Open in January – where she beat her sister Venus 6-4, 6-4 in 82 minutes. The victory during her first trimester returned her to world number 1 and she also became the oldest Grand Slam winner in the open era.

Serena’s rep Kelly Bush Novak confirmed the news, writing in a statement: ‘I’m happy to confirm Serena is expecting a baby this Fall.’ ‘The GOAT herself @serenawilliams took to Snapchat to announce she’s 20 weeks pregnant! Congratulations Serena!’ the US Tennis Association, organizers of the US Open, tweeted.
