  • Serena Williams has baby girl as the US Open is happening

    Serena Williams had a baby girl as the US Open is happening.

    “Tennis star Serena Williams gives birth to a baby girl weighing 6 pounds, 13 ounces. Mom and baby doing well,” WPBF-25 news producer Chris Shepherd announced on Twitter.

    Serena, who turns 36 later this month, became engaged last December to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian. In April, she announced via social media she was pregnant.

    As Tracy Austin pointed out on Tennis Channel during the Monte Carlo Open, Williams was probably pregnant when she won the Australian Open over older sister Venus in January.  Williams has not played since then.

    She has won 23 Majors, one more than Steffi Graf’s Open-Era record of 22, and one shy of Margaret Court’s all-time 24.

    Roger Federer, the father of four children, missed six months after Wimbledon in 2016 and has come back to win the Australian Open and Wimbledon in 2017. He’s now in the third round of the US Open.

    Without Williams, the women’s draw is wide open.
