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

Serena Williams will be the mother of a baby girl, if sister Venus is to be believed after she appeared to let the secret slip on Wednesday.

"She's going to call me the favorite aunt", she told the Eurosport interviewer when asked whether Serena has any names picked out.

Venus, who made her debut here in 1997 and was runner-up to Serena in 2002, next faces Kurumi Nara, who beat 15-year-old American Amanda Anisimova 3-6, 7-5, 6-4.

Top ranked New Zealand doubles player Michael Venus wants to put a awful record at Roland Garros behind him when he makes a fifth appearance at the French Open.

Venus won her second-round match, 6-3, 6-1, while beginning the most recent installment of the annual tournament as the 10th seed.

Williams' backhand was particularly impressive, providing 12 of her 30 winners. The 35-year-old tennis player had won her her 23rd Grand Slam title in the Australia Open earlier this year when she was already pregnant. I've got to get some confidence that I can do this.

"And he looked at me like I was from another planet". Once I started I fell in love with the concept of fueling your body in the best way possible. "If you can't enjoy your eating, I don't know how fun life would be!" "I have this thing where I've been checking my status and taking pictures every week to see how far along I'm getting".

"I think it's not easy for her to watch, because, you know, obviously she knows she can do well here", said Venus after the match.

"I know it's going to be emotional for quite some time".

Ekaterina Makarova, who upset top-seeded Angelique Kerber in the first round, could not follow up on her great performance and exited the French Open.

If the Serb defends his title in Paris he would be just 925 points behind Murray and if the world no.1 continues to disappoint and if Djokovic continues to improve, he could drop to No.2 by the end of the year.

In the selfie, Serena showed off her growing baby bump and wrote "20 weeks".

The fourth-seeded Muguruza is trying to avoid becoming the first reigning champion at Roland Garros to lose in the second round since 2014, when she upset Serena Williams at that stage. The Argentinian was the more consistent player, and that was the primary reason he was able to overcome Tsonga's power.
