Serena's back at a Slam! OK, sort of; she watched Venus win

Serena's back at a Slam! OK, sort of; she watched Venus win

We might know the sex of Serena Williams' baby, thanks to a slip-up from her sister Venus in a recent interview.

After Venus Williams's second-round victory on Wednesday at Roland Garros, Patrick Mouratoglou (Serena's coach and a TV commentator) asked Venus what she wanted Serena's child to call her.

"I think she was playing so, so good for the first two sets", Muguruza said.

Venus Williams is coming off a straight sets win over Kurumi Nara that took 16 games to decide.

Without Serena, the BookMaker odds to win the French Open 2017 for any US player belong to Venus Williams at +3000.

Venus Williams is doing well outside of tennis, as she has several businesses, including an interior design business, and she is launching a television show that is an all-female Shark Tank for those supporting entrepreneurship among ladies.

The victor of 23 Grand Slam singles titles is not playing for the rest of this season because she is pregnant. I got home at 1 a.m., it was hard to sleep. It's wonderful. It's something very special that if you love the sport you can do it. And even Pam Shriver, who knows pro tennis better than most, believes that Venus Williams is poised, despite her Sjogren's battle to make a comeback.

Ukraine's Elina Svitolina plays a shot against Bulgaria's Tsvetana Pironkova during their second round match of the French Open tennis tournament at the Roland Garros stadium in Paris France. Thursday

Also, Venus and Mouratoglou sang "Say My Name" for some reason.

There was also an unexpected visitor at the French Open, Serena Williams. "I don't know how well I'm going to do, because I don't know what to do".

Elsewhere world number one Angelique Kerber starts against experienced Russian player Ekaterina Makarova. Then Petra Kvitova, seeded 15 but playing her first matches since her hand was stabbed six months ago, lost just as Stosur was winning.

The women's game is notorious for its lack of consistency in the top seeds, with Williams completely dominating but absent here, and upsets are pretty much par for the course.

"She's going to call me "favorite aunt", she replied. "I thought I'd seen some draws in the last 10".
