Tennis star Serena Williams shared a special surprise on Snapchat Wednesday. Very impressive! Winning the Australian Open also meant that she beat Steffi Graf's previous record for the most Grand Slam singles titles, taking her into the record books.

In this January 28, 2017, file photo, Alexis Ohanian, fiance of Serena Williams, watches Williams play her sister, Venus, in the women's singles final at the Australian Open tennis championships in Melbourne, Australia.

The beginning of Williams' maternity leave coincides with the imminent return of two other big names on the tennis stage.

She posted the picture on Snapchat of her wearing a yellow one-piece swimsuit with the caption "20 weeks".

Serena's snap suggests that she won the Australian Open without dropping a set while pregnant.

Next Monday she is due to go back to number one, despite only having played two ranking tournaments outside the Grand Slams in the last twelve months, plus the Olympics.

Belarusian former world No. 1 Victoria Azarenka, a two-time Grand Slam victor, is also set for a return to the Tour later this year after giving birth to her son Leo in December.

It remains to be seen if both Williams and Azarenka can add to their haul of Slams upon their return, but if the former could it would be yet another incredible feat in her stunning career.

With confirmation that Serena Williams will not play for the remainder of 2017, there is a G.O.A.T. -shaped hole to be filled on the WTA Tour.

The 35-year-old American, who won this year's Australian Open title, her 23 women's singles Grand Slam, confirmed via a statement from her publicist that she is expecting her first child with Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of social news website Reddit.

I wrote my article, enraged that another prominent Black woman would decide to marry outside of her race, passing her generational wealth into the hands of another culture, on December 30, 2016. Kim Clijsters retired briefly to start a family, then came back to action and won Grand Slam titles.

However, Kerber can regain the world number one ranking that week in Stuttgart.

Court, 74, who straddled the sport's amateur and professional eras, was also the first mother to win a major as a professional.

Victories in Indian Wells and Miami previous year - which included wins over Kerber and Serena - hinted that the two-time major victor was back to her best. "She's already done so much, does she need more?"
