Venus Williams Marks 20th Anniversary with Victory

Posted June 01, 2017

Venus Williams is feeling good after Wednesday's 6-3, 6-1 victory over Kurumi Nara in the French Open second round, but that giddiness might have led to the divulgence of secret information regarding sister Serena's pregnancy.

Tennis champion, Serena Williams is said to be expecting a baby girl.

Venus Williams began her 20th Roland Garros with a 6-4, 7-6 (3) win over China's Wang Qiang on Sunday.

"She's going to call me 'favorite aunt, '" the 36-year-old said.

Serena, who is about six months pregnant, was in the stands on Wednesday to root on her older sister.

Second-seeded Djokovic barely put a foot wrong in a 6-1, 6-4, 6-3 win over Joao Sousa, while Muguruza had to dig deep to avoid becoming the first reigning champion at Roland Garros to lose in the second round since 2014, when she upset Serena Williams.

However, Serena has remained in the spotlight as of late and not because of her 23 grand slam singles titles. "The other days, I was able to kind of get to the locker room and kind of compose myself a little bit".

"The first round is always tricky", Williams said. "You never stop learning and that's what I love about the game".

Venus scares the hell out of me when those unforced errors pile up, as that's how she gives sets and matches away.

"She knows exactly what it's like out there, and she's had a lot of success here".

Kvitova, a semifinalist in 2012 and seeded 15 this year, faces America's Julia Boserup, the world number 86 who is making her French Open debut. Evert also says that since being diagnosed with Sjogren's Syndrome in 2011, Venus has made the changes necessary to cope with her disease and still win, and that meant revamping her diet. "It's a great opportunity for me to grow together with him and to experience, you know, whatever is ahead of us".

Chris Evert believes that Shriver is right, as Venus Williams has won several slams and is an excellent clay court player. "I thought I'd seen some draws in the last 10".

Back in April she posted a cute letter to her unborn child in an Instagram post, saying: 'I can't wait for you to join the players box next year.

Serena Williams' baby is due in the fall. Or was she just using "she" in a general sense?

The women's game is notorious for its lack of consistency in the top seeds, with Williams completely dominating but absent here, and upsets are pretty much par for the course.
