Venus Williams Not Sure How to Be an Auntie

Venus Williams Not Sure How to Be an Auntie

The 23 Grand Slam victor Serena Williams who is expecting her first child with her fiance, co-founder of Reddit Alexis Ohanian, in the fall, calmly watched her sister Venus play at Roland Garros from a shaded area on the main Court Philippe Chatrier.

Venus continued that she and her two other sisters, Isha and Lyndrea Price, are all trying to get Serena to name the baby in their honor.

Venus, playing at the French Open in Paris, told a TV interviewer: "She's going to call me her favourite aunt".

Serena has won the French Open three times, in 2002 (Venus was her opponent in the final), 2013 and 2015.

Williams, who is seeded 10th, saved two set points in her 6-4 7-6 (7-3) victory.

Williams never appeared extended on the Philippe Chatrier court, but she nevertheless delivered a display of exquisite shot-making to a crowd denied a real contest.

PARIS-Serena Williams, the victor of 23 Grand Slam titles, often dominates tennis' most coveted events, leaving her young challengers with scraps. I got home at 1 a.m., it was hard to sleep.

"I'm happy with the game, of course", Kvitova said, "but I mean, it wasn't really about the game today". And even Pam Shriver, who knows pro tennis better than most, believes that Venus Williams is poised, despite her Sjogren's battle to make a comeback. I was on vacation just taking some time for myself and I have this thing where I've been checking my status and taking pictures every week to see how far along I'm going.


She missed the Australian Open in January as a result and was initially expected to miss up to six months.

It was her first match for the season after she had suffered a career-threatening left hand injury during a robbery in her apartment prior to Christmas past year.

Auntie Venus said her biggest concern is being unaware of her exact role. I don't know exactly when.

First of all, the athlete referred to the baby as a "she", so, yeah, Serena is definitely having a girl.

Russian Ekaterina Makarova, who upset world No. 1 Angelique Kerber in the first round on Sunday, could not follow up on her stunning performance.

But it was Francesca Schiavone, another veteran and former champion who made what was possibly her last appearance here this week, who summed up the mood around Roland Garros-and beyond-as men and women of mature years continue to maintain the highest of levels.

It may depend on how much good fortune she enjoys as the draw unfolds.
