Serena Williams suggests she's pregnant with first child in Snapchat post

Williams would appear to be out for the rest of this tennis season, a blow to a sport in which she is an unqualified star - and, of course, something that makes major titles easier to come by for other competitors.

Neither Williams nor Ohanian have posted anything else on social media or commented publicly on Williams's news, but her fans instantly chimed in, congratulating her on her latest achievement.

What is Serena Williams' net worth and how much has she won in prize money during her career?

The announcement was the latest surprise from Williams, who unexpectedly announced her engagement to Alexis Ohanian, a businessman and the co-founder of Reddit, in December.

However, the 35-year-old American's representative confirmed the pregnancy in a widely circulated statement hours later. It also means she's due in early September, around the same time as the U.S. Open.

She beat her sister Venus in the final 6-4, 6-4 to claim her seventh title at the Australian Open. She pulled out of her next two scheduled events - Indian Wells and Miami - citing a left knee.

Williams, who has played professionally for two decades, first gained the No. 1 ranking in 2002 and has held that spot for more than six years in total during her career.
