Serena Williams: 22 Hottest Photos Of Tennis Star

Serena Williams and fiancee Alexis Ohanian have announced that they are pregnant with their first child (*pops bottles).

To celebrate, we wanted to take a look back at the tennis icon over the years. The 35-year-old super star has earned upwards of $84 million in prize money through her professional playing career, which began in 1995. To date, she has a 783-130 (85.76%) record in singles and 72 career titles. She earned the No. 1 ranking in the world for the first time in July 2002, regaining the ranking for the seventh time in January 2017.

Overall, Williams has held the top spot for 316 total weeks.

Still not impressed? Williams holds the most major titles in singles, doubles and mixed doubles combined among active players. Her 39 major titles rank third all-time and second in the open era. Yeah, she’s pretty good at this whole tennis thing.

Williams was born in Michigan and is the youngest of five sisters (including Venus, who is also incredible at the pro level). She moved to Compton, California when she was young and took up tennis when she was three. The rest, as they say, is history.
