PALM BEACH GARDENS — Serena Williams‘ mysterious exit from Wimbledon has sparked speculation that the 32-year-old Palm Beach Gardens tennis champ is pregnant!
While Williams claimed this week that a “bug” brought her to her knees and caused her to withdraw from the doubles competition with sister Venus, the German tabloid Bild today claims Williams’ pregnancy caused her to become woozy on the famous British tennis court.
And Bild ads the baby may have been conceived by Serena’s French coach and rumored boyfriend, Patrick Mouratoglou.
So far, it’s radio silence from Serena, who looked out of it at times in Wimbledon and appeared unable to stand during doubles warmups.
She and her family have never been forthcoming with personal information, and it took the sisters months to acknowledge the Gossip Extra scoop two years ago that their dad fathered a baby at 70!
Serena claimed this week a virus caused her to withdraw after three days of dismal play, and she even posted this photo on Instagram after rumors popped up that she was faking her illness to pull out of the tournament:
“In London, word is that Serena was impregnated by her coach,” Bild claims this morning.
Nine-time Wimbledon champ Martina Navratilova also sounded off on Williams’ strange behavior.
“I find it distressing,” Navratilova told USA Today. “I think virus, whatever they’re saying it was, I don’t think that was it. I think it’s clear that’s not the case. I don’t know what it is, but I hope Serena will be OK.”
Serena is expected to return home to BallenIsles later this week.
