Serena Williams is pregnant and will sit out the coming months of tennis competitions.
Her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou had no idea she had just found out she was pregnant when she won her 23rd Grand Slam singles title a few months ago.
Williams is due in September.
She will be close to 37 when she resumes her competitive tennis career.
Of course her coach said Serena has done things in her career that other people said were impossible.
He told reporters, “I do think she’ll come back and she will come back all the more if everyone thinks she’s done. So, I encourage you to write that she is finished. Please”.
Doubling down when others doubt you is enough motivation to succeed.
