One of Taylor Townsend’s last events was the US Open 2020. There, we saw many players like Serena Williams, Tvetana Pironkova and Victoria Azarenka playing some amazing tennis even after pregnancy. This has inspired her a lot as she said,

“I actually think for me being part of this US Open at this time was so great for me to see it’s possible, to balance professional goals and aspirations with motherhood and raising a child. That was so perfectly shown this year by Serena [Williams], Victoria [Azarenka], Kim [Clijsters] and [Tsvetana] Pironkova. I know this [journey] is going to be difficult, but watching them made me really excited.”

Everyone is looking to see Taylor Townsend return to tennis especially since she has been playing so well. Back in 2019, she stunned the world by beating Simona Halep at the US Open.

She is capable of winning some big titles and after her child is born, she will be more motivated to do so. Let’s hope that she can do it when she returns in late 2021 or early 2022.
