Two-time Grand Slam winner, Li Na announced she was pregnant to a crowd of 15,000 last night.
“Me and Dennis (Jiang), we are so excited. Our first child will be out this summer,” the Chinese two-time major champion told Rod Laver Arena in a ceremony before the night session on day one of the Australian Open, sparking cheers from the terraces where her beaming husband clapped.
“I think Dennis is doing a good job. He just made one ace.”
After capturing her first title at Melbourne Park last year on her third run to the final, 32-year-old Li retired in September, citing persistent injuries to her knees.
