SERENA WILLIAMS POSES IN RISQUE NUDE PREGNANCY SHOOT FOR VANITY FAIR AS SHE REVEALS SHE PLANS TO BE
Tennis superstar Serena Williams has revealed that she hopes to be back on the court as early as January as she prepares for the birth of her baby.
In a new interview with Vanity Fair, Serena shares her future plans for her sporting workload as she poses in a very risque shoot.
At 35 years old, the pregnant Williams shocks on the cover of the August issue in a striking portrait photographed by longtime collaborator Annie Leibovitz, who first shot Williams, alongside her sister Venus, when she was 16 years old.

Williams also gives a telling interview alonside the shoot with contributing editor Buzz Bissinger.
Serena is facing the reality that she is indeed having a baby with her soon-to-be husband.
'It just doesn't seem real. I don't know why. Am I having a baby?' she says.
Williams tells Bissinger that, as of May, she hadn't made any preparations: 'I don't know what to do with a baby.
'I have nothing … I've done absolutely nothing for the baby room.'
Meanwhile, Bissinger revealed that Ohanian is 'earnestly preparing and already has a tip jar he puts money into whenever he uses profanity so he won't utter it around the baby.'
He's looking forward to the marriage; Williams, on the other hand, tells Bissinger (with tongue in cheek), 'I'm trying to enjoy the little freedom I have left.'
