It appears the trip has provided Serena with the opportunity to reflect on the prospect of becoming a mother, and on Monday she posted a photo of herself on the beach along with a heartfelt letter to her unborn child. The tennis champion, 35, described her pregnancy as the "best feeling" as she revealed she has moved back to the number one spot on the newest WTA rankings. Alongside a picture of herself cradling her blossoming bump, she wrote: "My Dearest Baby, You gave me the strength I didn't know I had. You taught me the true meaning of serenity and peace."

She added: "I can't wait to meet you. I can't wait for you to join the players box next year. But most importantly, I am so happy to share being number one in the world with you.... once again today. On @alexisohanian bday. From the world's oldest number one to the world's youngest number one. -Your mummy." [sic] Serena announced her pregnancy via Snapchat last week, after sharing a selfie in a yellow swimsuit which showed off her baby bump. In the caption, she simply wrote, "20 weeks". Serena's spokesperson has since told New York Times that the pregnant star will miss the 2017 season, but plans to return in 2018.
