Serena Williams, tennis superstar and Sports Illustrated athlete of the year, seems to have announced her pregnancy in a post to her story in Snapchat.

She unveiled the news while pictured in a yellow swimsuit with the caption "20 weeks".

"At the same table we first met by chance, this time he made it not by chance, but by choice", she wrote.

But she's been inactive since her victory over elder sister Venus in the final at Melbourne Park. I'm proud to have opened [two] schools in Africa and one in Jamaica [through the Serena Williams Fund and its partners]. Congratulations had begun to pour in from fellow players and tennis organizations on social media, but the WTA Tour deleted its post. She actually won the Australian Open tennis major in late January, when she was about two months along.

Former world number one Victoria Azarenka of Belarus, 27, won the Indian Wells and Miami titles in March of past year before missing the rest of the season after announcing she was expecting a baby in December. It will mark her 317th week as the top female tennis player in the world.

Serena Williams is now expecting the world's next great tennis player - the latest in exciting personal news for the superstar athlete.

Serena hasn't played since then, pulling out of both Indian Wells and Miami, citing a knee injury.

Serena Williams just shut down anyone who considers women "the weaker sex".

"He's incredibly - a really nice person", the star said. "I look forward to being back as soon as I can".

Williams previously revealed she wants to have children "someday" but still feels like she is too young.
