Did Serena Williams win the Australian Open while pregnant?

0

Serena Williams opened a pandora’s box when she posted a photo of herself on Snapchat in a bathing suit and captioned it “20 weeks” seemingly telling the world she is 20 weeks pregnant.

The image showed Williams posing in a mirror with a semi tummy bulge but there was no official confirmation by her representatives.

The image was later removed from her channel.

The post left many bewildered as this would indicate she was pregnant when she won the Australian Open in January for her record-breaking 23rd Grand Slam singles title.

This also means she played while pregnant and did not drop a set.

Further raising suspicion that her post was not a prank, she has not played in any other tournament since the win. She hwoever did cite a knee injury while withdrawing from events in Indian Wells, Calif., and Miami last month.

She is however on the entry list for the Madrid Open, a major clay-court event that begins May 5.

Serena, 35 is engaged to  Alexis Ohanian on Reddit who is a co-founder of the site.
