Serena Williams Keeping Baby Gender a 'Surprise,' Clarifies Venus' Comments

Serena Williams watched her older sister from the stands.

With pregnant Serena Williams off the tour and new mum Victoria Azarenka only set for a comeback next month, America's Bethanie Mattek-Sands says she is not quite ready for motherhood yet.

Venus Williams was able to overcome a shaky start to defeat Kurumi Nara 6-3, 6-1 to reach the third round of the French Open on Wednesday.

This is Williams' first child with her fiancé, Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian.

The proud aunty-to-be who is still breaking records in the absence of her sister Serena, referred to the bun in the oven as a "she" at the 2017 French Open. "Every day we're like, Baby Vee, Baby Isher, Baby Lyn, so we all want the baby to be named after us".

Carrying over the momentum from the first set, Williams had the flawless start to the second set as she sealed her opening service game with an ace.

But in a good-humoured tweet, Serena said this was all part of a technique she uses when looking to her siblings for favours.

"She's going to call me her favorite aunt", Williams replied, laughing.

PARIS Two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova's comeback was cut short on Wednesday when she was dumped out of the French Open in a second round straight-sets defeat to doubles world number one Bethanie Mattek-Sands. To be clear, she didn't directly say, "My sister is having a girl", but she definitely spoiled if her younger sister will soon be mom to a daughter. For, as Williams said in Miami earlier this year, she is "going to leave everything on the court - all my guts, blood, sweat, tears".

The star confessed the Snapchat which revealed she was 20 weeks along was sent by mistake.

And the sportswoman recently confessed she and Alexis aren't planning on finding out the sex of their child. Mertens is experiencing by far her most grand slam success at 21 years old and has a shot for a career changing victory in this matchup.
