Serena Williams appeared to announce on Snapchat that she is pregnant only to remove the post a few minutes later.
Williams, 35, got engaged to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian in December. He proposed with a large diamond ring, which she showed off in January. They had been dating for only 15 months before he got down on one knee.
If she is indeed 20 weeks along, that would mean Williams was already in the early stages of pregnancy when she beat her sister in Melbourne to win a record-setting 23rd Grand Slam title. Serena has not played in a tournament since. Here is the photo she posted on Wednesday:

It is still unclear what the pregnancy would mean for her tennis career as she would have to take time off from the game, something she has rarely done since she started competing as a child.
