Serena Williams just served the Internet. A representative for Williams declined to comment on whether the post was a confirmation that she is pregnant.
The Twitter world - and probably all of her competitors - rejoiced at the idea of Serena stepping back from the court to bring a new life into the world.
Without Williams, who was next due to play in May's Madrid Open, there would be a massive vacuum and a near free for all when it comes to the battle for the sport's biggest prizes.
Serena Williams appeared to announce she is pregnant on Wednesday.
The Australian Open final was her last competitive game, where she was victorious over her sister Venus.
And she opted out of the Indian Wells and Miami competitions in March, blaming the cancellations on a knee injury.
A spokesperson for the tennis player has confirmed that she and fiancé Alexis Ohanian are expecting their first child.
If Williams is pregnant, she's also managed to remain remarkably active.
Williams, 35, is already known around the world for her dominance of women's tennis, but pregnancy would make her even more likeable in the eyes of the wider public, experts in the sponsorship industry said.
Williams' 23 Grand Slam singles titles are a record for the Open era, which began in 1968; she broke a tie with Steffi Graf in Australia. The tennis star then described the moment Alexis popped the question to her, revealing the proposal took place at the venue where they first met. "Meanwhile, US Open Tennis responded to Williams' message by saying: "@serenawilliams will have a new pride & joy to hug and call her own soon!
Serena wrote: "I came home". I always thought about leaving a legacy of fulfillment, living out your dreams, and giving back. "Together we can change the future".
