Serena eyes challenge of post-baby comeback
Serena Williams has spent her career defying the odds, winning 23 Grand Slam singles titles and becoming the oldest world number one at age 35. But now she will face perhaps the ultimate challenge -- making a comeback after motherhood. Williams, who announced her engagement to Reddit social media site co-founder Alexis Ohanian last December, revealed Wednesday she is having a baby, in a Snapchat photo with the caption "20 weeks." If her timing was precise, it would mean Williams won the Australian Open, her 23rd Grand Slam crown to set an Open Era record, without dropping a set in January -- while eight weeks pregnant. Kelly Bush Novak, Williams' publicist, told AFP only that Serena "is expecting a baby this fall" and "looks forward to returning in 2018."
