It seems that playing a Grand Slam while pregnant is becoming a trend. After losing in the first round of Wimbledon to Francesca Schiavone, 6-1, 6-1, Mandy Minella took to Twitter to announce that she is four-and-a-half months pregnant with her first child with husband Tim Sommer.

However, the world No. 82 isn't the only one hitting the courts with a baby bump. Serena Williams took to the practice court at more than seven months pregnant. Her form still looks as good as ever.


Minella continues her Wimbledon bid in doubles.
