Serena Wil­liams

The new mum is set to re­turn to Wim­ble­don next year – with her tot in tow

Now (UK) - - News - Words by Sarah Tet­teh

Serena Wil­liams has had the most event­ful year: get­ting en­gaged, giv­ing birth to her adorable first child, and now she’s busy plan­ning her wed­ding to Red­dit mogul Alexis Oha­nian.

But there is no chance of the star putting her feet up any time soon. Now can re­veal that the 36-year-old ten­nis champ is plan­ning her come­back to the courts – and she will even re­turn to Wim­ble­don.

Ten­nis ace Greg Rused­ski re­vealed, ‘Serena will be back at Wim­ble­don next year, and she’ll bring her baby!’

Speak­ing at the Lan­son cham­pagne event at The Shard, Greg, who’s now re­tired from the sport, said, ‘Wim­ble­don won’t be the same with­out Serena. She’s in­cred­i­ble.’

Serena has snapped right back into shape af­ter giv­ing birth to daugh­ter Alexis Olympia Oha­nian Jr on 1 Septem­ber. She showed off her amaz­ing post-baby body just two weeks af­ter Alexis’ ar­rival, thanks to main­tain­ing her ex­er­cise regime while preg­nant.

De­but­ing her hot mum look on Snapchat, she wrote, ‘Back in my jean shorts two weeks...’

It’s lit­tle won­der the ten­nis great has been get­ting back into shape, as Serena is said to be se­cretly mak­ing plans to wed her mil­lion­aire en­tre­pre­neur beau in a ro­man­tic cer­e­mony in New Or­leans. The Wim­ble­don favourite and holder of 23 Grand Slam ti­tles looked great as she ar­rived in the city last week wear­ing black leg­gings and a black leather jacket. Serena and Alexis, 34, took a pri­vate jet for a day trip to meet with their wed­ding plan­ner in the Big Easy early in the morn­ing. Af­ter a day of dis­cussing ar­range­ments and look­ing at prospec­tive venues, the cou­ple made it home in time to see their daugh­ter be­fore bed­time. Sounds like this ten­nis su­per­star has al­ready scored an ace at moth­er­hood!
