Serena's back at a Slam! OK, sort of; she watched Venus win

Serena's back at a Slam! OK, sort of; she watched Venus win

Venus Williams accidentally spilled the beans on the gender of her pregnant sister Serena's baby.

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

She was at Roland Garros on Wednesday watching her older sister defeat Kurumi Nara in the second round on the showpiece Philippe Chatrier court. "We all want the baby to be named after us", the 36-year-old told Eurosport, referring to the names of Serena's sisters.

Williams, seeded 10 and three weeks shy of her 37th birthday, had to dig deep to see off her opponent who had led 4-2 in the first set and 5-3, with set points, in the second.

Serena chatted to her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, as Venus went about her business, possibly plotting how she might win grand slam title number 24 once she has given birth. "Thankfully, I was able to find something that helped me get back to doing what I loved".

"And he looked at me like I was from another planet".

His Maryland lawyers are appealing in both state and federal court on the same grounds, and a hearing is set for next month. Malvo, now 32 years old, is currently being held at Red Onion State Prison, a super-maximum security prison in Virginia.

"I came here to win the matches", Kvitova said. When you consider the big hitters in the women's game that have won, Sharapova twice in the last four or five years, Muguruza last year, Venus is one of the possibilities'. "This match is special to me", said Kvitova. And even Pam Shriver, who knows pro tennis better than most, believes that Venus Williams is poised, despite her Sjogren's battle to make a comeback.

She also went into an impromptu version of Destiny's Child "Say my name". "He raised me to be a competitor and a fighter until the last point", Johnson said. "I don't know how well I'm going to do, because I don't know what to do".

The two-time Wimbledon champion, who underwent surgery to her left hand in December after suffering a stabbing in a horrific home invasion attack, was playing just her second match of the season and still doesn't have full filling in one of her fingers.

Serena Williams was in an unfamiliar spot Wednesday at Roland Garros. "If she stays here through the end, I would like that".

Williams is a pretty capable clay court player, indeed, with nine titles and a 168-56 career record on clay to earn a winning percentage of 75.

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.
