What elite athletes can teach us about pregnancy

Serena Williams has not played since then, citing a knee injury.

The 35-year-old tennis great revealed her 20 weeks old baby bump in a yellow swimsuit with two gold buttons and a cut out on the side via Snapchat on Wednesday, April 19.

Pregnant Serena Williams seems as if she will attract more corporate sponsors and this will probably result in the increase of William's net worth.

It would be perfectly safe for Serena Williams to continue with rigorous training throughout pregnancy, but how quickly she would return to tournament tennis, if she so chooses, was uncertain, the researchers said. We thought this was going to be the year that Williams might tie Margaret Court's record of 24 major titles won, and whether she got there or not it was going to be fun to see Williams gunning for more history this season.

She also reached the finals of the Australian Open and French Open, as well as the semis of the US Open.

With 72 WTA singles titles in 22 years, Williams' dominance in the sport has made it hard for competition to come from behind her shadow and claim victory, so her absence this season should make it easier for others to rise up. Another considered her a "legend" for beating out the best players in the world while pregnant.

There's always a possibility she might not be able to return as early as she wants, but there is no question that Williams will return to the game at some point, strong as ever.

Azarenka, a good friend of Williams, told fedcup.com: "I'm really, really happy for her".

"This is another one of those ultimate challenges for Serena Williams, say around the age of 37, to try and tie Margaret Court", said Pam Shriver, a 1980s USA tennis star-turned-commentator for ESPN.

Amid competition, Verizon loses key customers for first time
In first-quarter 2017, Verizon added a net of 35,000 Fios Internet connections and lost a net of 13,000 Fios Video connections. Verizon expects improvement in wireless service revenue this year, with total revenue "fairly consistent" with 2016.

Trump on Pats, 'No team has been good this long'
Wide receiver Danny Amendola also skipped the visit, thanking Trump " for the shout out " and saying he had a funeral to attend. Trump then jumped into the story of how Belichick wrote him an encouraging letter during the contentious presidential election.

It's no secret tennis isn't as popular in the United States as other sports like football or baseball.

Along with having babies in the same year, what fans can expect from both Williams and Beyonce is an epic comeback.

Serena Williams is expected back in 2018.

She grew up in the crime-ridden Los Angeles suburb of Compton, learning the game she would come to dominate from her father Richard and practicing mainly against her older sister Venus.

Venus will surely miss her sister.

Angelique Kerber: The 29-year-old German now sits atop of the WTA poll and has been Serena Williams' biggest competition the last few years. The idea is that women were encouraged or even forced to become pregnant before competing, and later had abortions.

This is coming after a tremendous 2016 which saw her win the Wimbledon grand slam singles title and women's doubles along with her sister, Venus. Serena Williams' net worth is estimated at $160.0 million.
