Serena Williams has had many memorable moments in her tennis career. From winning her maiden Grand Slam title in 1999 to making a comeback recently, the American legend has seen it all. One of the life-changing years for Serena was in 2017.

The former World Number 1 was gearing up for the Australian Open that year. However, shortly before the start of the tournament, she found out that she is expecting her first child. Not only did Serena go on to play in the tournament but also won the title after defeating her elder sister, Venus Williams in the finals.
