Serena Williams 'definitely' wants to have more kids with husband Alexis Ohanian

"I was in a really fortunate situation where I know my body well, and I am who I am, and I told the doctor: 'I don't feel right, something's wrong.' She immediately listened", Williams told BBC.
Williams would typically get a first-round bye in tournaments like this, but because she's been so inactive, she is unseeded.
Azarenka - who gave birth to a baby boy in December 2016 - said she can't wait for her son to meet Alexis Olympia. "Thanks for the support I look forward to seeing you out there!"
"I think she's only going to come out when she's at 100 per cent". Here, at a venue that has not always been among her favourite places to play tennis - she won the title twice, in 1999 and 2001, before boycotting the event for several years because of racial harassment - she will have to prove she still has what it takes to produce her best under pressure on the Tour.
Venus and Serena are more accustomed to meeting in the finals of tournaments.
There are precedents for mothers winning Grand Slam titles, most recently Kim Clijsters, who claimed three of her four Majors after giving birth to her first child in 2008. Following "a slew of heart complications" like swollen blood clots, and surgery to remove a hematoma, Williams still wanted to return for 2018 Australian Open, 3 months after she gave birth.
One of the greatest tennis players of all time - Martina Navratilova expects Serena Williams to be back to her peak form soon. "So, I'm going to wait and see what happens". "So, I expect her to be at full flight. I'm just excited to be back and playing here, in Madison Square Garden". It marks her first WTA match since winning her 23rd Grand Slam in Melbourne previous year. The siblings could face each other in the third round.
No-one said it would be easy, coming back after so long away, at 36 years old, and with the physical trauma that this remarkable champion has overcome in recent months.
Stephen Hawking: before the Big Bang there was nothing
In other words, the Euclidean space-time continuum is an endless closed surface, much like the surface of the Earth. The idea here, if I'm understanding correctly, is that the universe didn't exist, and then it did, and now it does.
