Williams won the Australian Open while pregnant. Last month, the 23-time grand slam champ opened up about her pregnancy to Vogue. “Two weeks after we found out, I played the Australian Open,” she said at the time. “I told Alexis it has to be a girl because there I was playing in 100-degree weather, and that baby never gave me any trouble. Ride or die. Women are tough that way.”

She was originally scared of pregnancy, but found a sense of peace after it happened. “But once I found out, something happened that surprised me,” she explained to Vogue. “I became really calm. I thought, You have to win, but you’re allowed to lose, because you have something to look forward to.”
