The 36-year-old tennis pro covers the August issue of InStyle, the magazine’s first issue of “Bada ss Women,” where she discusses the possibility of expanding her family with her husband, Alexis Ohanian, and their 9-month-old daughter, Alexis Olympia.
“If I did not work, I would already be pregnant, ” admits Williams, who pulled out of the French Open earlier this month due to a chest injury. “I do not know if I want to play if I have another baby …”
Williams adds that knowing that she was pregnant with baby Alexis at the Australian Open last year was not easy, and that it was just as hard to come back to play five months after giving birth .
“I had a very difficult first round and a second round that was even more difficult,” she recalls. “I thought,” I will probably lose early. Its good. I have a good excuse for the first time. ‘”
” [After the birth I was] in the locker room pumping my breasts before a game because my breasts are so big,” she continues. “When I pump, they go down one or two and I go out and play”.
