Serena Williams reveals post-baby weight-loss battle

Serena Williams reveals post-baby weight-loss battle

Apart from adjusting to her role "as a working mom", the seven-times champion also had to get used to hearing something "new" as she was addressed as "Mrs Williams" for the first time at the grasscourt major following her marriage to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian a year ago. "Miss C.M. Evert" became Mrs. Lloyd after her first marriage to John Lloyd in 1979. Thankfully, I won that match. But again, I got the sense that it was a matter of years, if not months before she's going to be a champion. It's an odd tradition that some complain is a gender inequity in need of change, while others simply shrug it off.

Serena stuck to a strict diet after giving birth but was surprised she only started losing weight once she'd stopped nursing.

Even if female tennis players do decide to take their husband's last name in competition, the board of champions still lists them using their husband's initials and last name.

On Wednesday, there were more women's matches than men's on six show courts. "Now it's several women out there playing". In a men's doubles first-round match India's Purav Raja and Frenchman Fabrice Martin crashed to a 2-6, 4-6, 7-6 (7-5), 6-4, 9-11 loss to Bosnia's Basic Mirza and Serbia's Dusan Lajovic in 3 hours and 37-minutes. I literally sat Olympia in my arms, I talked to her, we prayed about it. The Times looked at matches on Wimbledon's feature courts over the last 25 years, and found that just 39% were women's matches. Joyce Barclay, who reached the women's doubles semifinals at Wimbledon in 1972, is credited with five marriages.

Amir Johnson re-signs with the Sixers on a one-year deal
James committed to the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday; George announced he'll remain with the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday night.

It was one of the few times Serena Williams wanted to lose. "Hopefully, it's just one", she said, laughing.

She is back at Wimbledon for the first time as a mom, but Serena Williams was in no mood for nurturing as she blasted her way into the second round.

A year ago, Buzarnescu was ranked 213 and lost in Wimbledon qualifying - yet now she will face Czech seventh seed Karolina Pliskova for a place in the last 16.
