Serena earned her status as a top athlete long before claiming her 23rd Grand Slam title when she won the Australian Open roughly two months into her pregnancy.
And while her love of tennis has propelled her into star status with millions of dollars in prizes, she's not too sure if adding another child into her family will change her position on playing the game.
'If I weren't working, I'd already be pregnant … I don't know if I want to play if I have another baby,' Serena admitted.
Her pregnancy was somewhat difficult, especially having to play on the professional level in front of millions of fans who knew nothing about her big surprise.
'If I weren't working, I'd already be pregnant … I don't know if I want to play if I have another baby,' Serena admitted
'I had a really tough first round and an even tougher second round,' she said of the tournament. 'I thought, "I'm probably going to lose early. That's OK. I have a good excuse for the first time."'
Her baby girl Alexis Olympia was born in Palm Beach, Florida on Sept. 1, 2017 after an unexpected cesarean section.
After recovering from the birth and setting her sights back on the court, Serena found a few new obstacles she wasn't used to when prepping for a match.
'…I'm in the locker room pumping before a match because my boobs are so big,' Serena admitted. 'When I pump, they go down a size or two and I go out and play.'

'I had this sense, like, 'I'm going to marry this guy, but I'm not ready yet, but I know I'm going to marry this guy,"' she said of meeting the Reddit co-founder. 'I didn't know his world at all, but I've always been tech-savvy.'
The power couple began dating in 2015 before announcing their engagement in December 2016, with a star-studded New Orleans wedding to follow less than one year later.
'I had a few investments before I met him, and I wanted to know more,' she said. 'So we started talking, just as friends. Just casually chatting. I was getting hot when he was talking about it all [laughs]… I don't know – I love his world.'
