Tennis star Serena Williams was forced to withdraw from her doubles match with sister Venus Williams, and rumors are suggestion that she is with-child. The 32-year-old, five time winner, didn’t appear to have any coordination.
“I am heartbroken I’m not able to continue in the tournament,” Serena said in a statement. “I thought I could rally this morning because I really wanted to compete, but this bug just got the best of me.”
Rumors in the UK are blaming her sickness on her coach and suggested boyfriend Patrick Mouratoglou. Reports out of London are claiming that Serena is with child and Patrick is the father!
Williams hasn't hinted towards a baby, but she has blamed her illness on a viral virus.
However, fellow tennis players aren't buying her story but are wishing her well. Former Wimbledon champion Martina Navratilova told reporters that she is worried Serena’s condition could be something more serious than viral illness:
“I find it distressing. I think virus, whatever they’re saying it was, I don’t think that was it. I think it’s clear that’s not the case. I don’t know what it is, but I hope Serena will be OK, I’ve never seen anything like it and hopefully never will again. Everybody was put in such a difficult position, including the WTA. It’s not right. It defies logic on so many fronts. The coach said he hadn’t seen her for two days. He didn’t know anything. How can you be a coach and not know anything? That’s wrong. And Venus was just kind of there. You don’t know what’s going on, but virus was not it, that much is clear,” Navratilova said.
