Serena Williams considering retirement from tennis as Wimbledon star plans for second child

SERENA WILLIAMS could retire from tennis – if she has more children.

Williams, 36, became a mother for the first time when she gave birth to her daughter Alexis Olympia last September.

And the 23-time Grand Slam singles winner does want more children, but is unsure she would make another return to the game.

Williams told InStyle magazine: “We’ve got to have more. I don’t know if I want to play if I have another baby.

“I need to talk to Alexis. We need a plan.”

“If I weren’t working, I’d already be pregnant, I hear everyone’s different, but I had a really easy pregnancy until the birth. Not even birth — after.”

Williams is still on the comeback trail, but pulled out of her French Open fourth-round clash with Maria Sharapova due to injury.
The American legend is the 25th seed for Wimbledon, and despite only playing three tournaments in the last 12 months is aiming for her eighth Women’s singles title at the All England club next week.
Sister Venus, aiming for her fifth Wimbledon singles title, is seeded ninth.

However, world No 32 Dominika Cibulkova is unseeded and complained before the seedings were announced it would be unfair if Williams was ranked above her.

She said: “I don't think it's the right thing to do, I think it's just not fair.

"I have tried and I should be seeded. If they put her in front of me then I will lose my spot that I am supposed to have."

Simona Halep is the Women’s top seed with Sharapova seeded 24th.
