Tennis star Serena Williams hints at pregnancy
There was speculation last night that former Wimbledon champion Serena Williams is pregnant.
The tennis sensation posted a photograph on her Snapchat and Instagram accounts yesterday evening wearing a swimsuit with a gently rounded stomach, along with the caption "20 weeks".
It appeared to suggest she is expecting a child.
However, the 35-year-old deleted the post after just a few hours.
If Serena is 20 weeks pregnant, that means she may have been around eight weeks pregnant when she won the Australian Open in late January.
Serena announced her engagement to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian on December 29 last year.
She pulled out of tournaments in Indian Wells and Miami in March. This saw her drop to second in the world rankings, but she is poised to return to regain the top spot from Germany's Angelique Kerber on Monday.
Serena's representatives have not confirmed if she is pregnant.
