Boy or girl? Serena isn't saying

Boy or girl? Serena isn't saying

Williams, one of many being tipped to challenge for this year's title in the absence of her sister Serena, took the first set without too many problems.

Venus, playing at the French Open in Paris, told a TV interviewer: "She's going to call me her favourite aunt". "We're all like, baby V, baby Lyn, baby Isha, we all want the baby to be named after us". The site, however, also mentioned that although Venus is one of the all-time best professional tennis players in the U.S., she is also 36 years old and well past her prime.

The interview led many to believe that the baby, due in September, will be a girl.

But a day later, Serena wrote: "I think the surprise of knowing what you are going to have on that very special day you give birth is prob the best surprise you can ever have".

The Welshman's status as a fan favorite was cemented after he scored the victor in the 2014 Champions League final. The 27-year-old Bale has the disadvantage of limited playing time in the latter stages of the season.

After eliminating the youngest player at this year's French Open in the first round, Japan's Kurumi Nara will move all the way along the age spectrum on Wednesday when she seeks a second successive win over Venus Williams. "That just wraps it up", said Venus who has never got beyond the quarterfinal in Paris since her runner-up spot 15 years ago.

Serena Williams' fans have been madly searching for any clues about whether or not she's having a boy or a girl, and it looks like Venus unwittingly lobbed a big one into the frenzied crowd of the internet.

So you thought it was a girl? "So I think that she's just excited about everything coming up in her life, on and off the court, (and) excited about returning here hopefully next year", ExcelleSports quoted her saying. "Then have a lot of diaper duty". But with Serena out and after reaching the final at the Australian Open, she might just fancy her chances, especially in the warm conditions.
