On discovering she was pregnant: “(I) did a double take and my heart dropped. Like literally it dropped. ‘Oh my God, this can’t be — I’ve got to play a tournament. How am I going to play the Australian Open? I had planned on winning Wimbledon (her third straight) this year.’”
On facing the reality that she is pregnant six months later: “It just doesn’t seem real. I don’t know why. ‘Am I having a baby?’ I don’t know what to do with a baby. I have nothing… I’ve done absolutely nothing for the baby room.”
On Ohanian’s surprise proposal: “I knew it was coming. I was like, ‘Serena, you’re 35, you’re ready. This is what you want.’”
