Tennis player Serena Williams has announced her retirement. She emphasized her family in her announcement, writing that her nearly five-year-old daughter wants to be an older sister, sparking speculation that she is pregnant.
She is preparing to call it quits after the 2022 U.S. Open. The pro athlete confirmed her decision in a recent interview with Vogue, as she gave her all as the cover girl for the magazine’s September 2022 Issue.
During the interview, Williams discussed being at a crossroads in her career and with her family.
She said, “I never wanted to have to choose between tennis and having a family. In my opinion, it is not fair. If I were a guy, I’d be out there playing and winning while my wife did the physical labor of raising our family.”
“Do not misunderstand me. I love being a woman, and Olympia’s pregnancy was a joy to witness. Many people are unaware that I won the Australian Open in 2017 while two months pregnant. But, on September 26, I’ll turn 41, and something got to give,” she continued.
Serena Williams announced her retirement to devote her time to her family.
Williams has also shifted her focus from tennis to other things that are important to her. Moreover, she added in an Instagram post on Tuesday that she has to focus on being a mom and her spiritual goals.
In addition, the tennis player told Vogue that she and her daughter, whom she shares with her husband Alexis Ohanian, were in a car. Her daughter was interacting with an educational app on her phone.
This robot voice inquires, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” And she answers the phone in hushed tones, saying, “I want to be a big sister.”
Williams also revealed she never considered having children earlier in her career. With all the problems in the world, she used to wonder if she would ever have children. She had never felt confident or at ease around babies or children, and she reasoned that if she ever did have a baby, she would have people taking care of it around the clock.
Furthermore, Williams stated that she and her husband Alexis tried to have another child last year. They recently received information from my doctor that put her mind at ease and made her feel that they could add to our family whenever they were ready. She does not want to be pregnant as an athlete again, and she needs to be two feet in or two feet out of tennis.
Her decision to retire from tennis after the U.S. Open suggests a pregnancy announcement imminent. The sportswoman hasn’t revealed what she expects, so this is just conjecture as of the time of writing.
Similarly, many believe she was showing signs of early pregnancy during the tournament, which has fueled rumors that she is pregnant.
Following the rumors, one person said, “Saying it for records #SerenaWilliams is pregnant right now.”
Similarly, another person tweeted, “Is Serena Williams expecting a child? Is there a bump beneath all those sparkles?”
Is Dave Bautista on Steroids? Know His Height, Weight, and More
Dave Batista has been accused of using steroids.
Dave Bautista is a very popular professional wrestler, who was born on January 18, 1969. He combines a bodybuilder’s shredded physique with an MMA fighter’s ability.
American actor and former professional wrestler Batista is also a fighter in mixed martial arts. Before officially signing with the World Wrestling Federation, he worked as a bouncer for nightclubs and then pursued a career in bodybuilding.
He first achieved fame as a part of team Evolution following his 2002 debut. He won several titles throughout his rather fruitful tenure in WWE, including the World Heavyweight Championship, WWE Championship, and World Tag Team Championship.

He also attempted to start a career in MMA, but it appears that the fighting styles weren’t a good fit for him, so he returned to WWE. After Triple H defeated him en route to the Championship, he announced his retirement in 2019.
In addition to this, Batista has also achieved success as an actor, with roles in movies like Riddick, Guardians of the Galaxy, Heist, and the James Bond film Spectre.
In terms of his personal life, he has been married three times, the first two of which ended in divorce. His current spouse is a pole dancer named Sarah Jade.
He has also dated a few WWE divas, including Melina Perez, Kelly Kelly, and Rosa Mendes.
Maintaining that physique often takes a little more than a relentless attitude in the gym, which is why there have been various allegations of steroid use leveled at Batista.
Dave Bautista height and weight
David Michael Bautista, who is best known by his ring name Batista is an extremely big guy, due to which there have been some question marks regarding his body.
Batista stands 6 foot 6 inches tall (198 cm) and weighs 130 kg ( 287 pounds).
Is Bautista on steroids?
Batista reigned supreme when the WWE was in its most muscle-bound era. For the main event pushes, ripped men like Triple H and Batista were always in the title frame, while smaller men were mid-card at best.
He has claimed that he has remained natural even after quitting the sport, and he typically responds head-on to allegations of steroid use in interviews.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter’s Dave Meltzer wrote after Batista sustained a bicep injury in 2009 that the wrestler’s “new look raised a lot of eyebrows” and that biceps “will break more frequently on steroids.”
To verify whether steroids caused this injury, writer Irv Muchnick emailed Meltzer. Meltzer replied, “Obviously, it was steroid related, but in fairness, guys not on steroids also tear biceps and not triceps.”
Bautista denied ever using steroids and was never suspended by WWE for any violation despite ESPN reporting two years prior that he was a client of a pharmacy under investigation for selling steroids.
Did WWE suspend Dave Bautista for using drugs?
After losing an “I Quit” match with John Cena at Over the Limit in 2010, Batista quit the WWE. At the time, his exit raised more concerns than answers because it was the last time anyone had seen him working for the company for four years.
During an interview on MLW Radio Writer’s Room, Bautista asserted that WWE’s refusal to provide him opportunities to work on movies was what drove him away.
He claims that WWE did not allow him to audition for outside projects when he asked WWE, which is why he gave WWE a year’s notice in 2009 and left the company in 2010.

Besides cricket, the 31-year-old also earns through brand endorsements, including SS Sports, Gillette, Tata Power, and Blizpools.
With his massive income, he lives a lavish life. He owns a luxurious farmhouse in his hometown Palghar. He is also planning to buy a new flat in Mumbai to live with Mittali Parulkar, whom he will marry on February 27, 2023.
The allrounder also owns a Mercedes SUV. Anand Mahindra had also gifted him a Mahindra after the match-winning effort during the historic Gabba Test to win the Test series down under.
Shardul Thakur’s decade-long cricket career
Thakur told Indian Express about his strategy in his game. He said, “My planning and strategy start a day before the game. If I’m bowling in the nets, I will try things which I want to try in the game. If I’m executing well, I will bowl them in the game.”
“I always believe that whatever practice I do, it should be purposeful. Having quality practice is the key,” he added.
His career began with the Ranji Trophy in 2012, representing Mumbai. He also played for the 2015-14 to 2015-16 Ranji Trophy and the 2013–14 Vijay Hazare Trophy.
His IPL career began with Kings XI Punjab at the 2014 IPL player auction, with the debut against Delhi Daredevils taking one wicket in four overs.
In March 2017, he was signed by Rising Pune Supergiants and was acquired by Chennai Super Kings for the 11th season of IPL in 2018.

Delhi Capitals bought him in the 2022 auction, and after 14 matches during the season, he was traded to Kolkata Knight Riders ahead of auctions for IPL 2023.
He made his One-Day International Debut against Sri Lanka in India’s Test tour of the West Indies in 2016. He made his Twenty20 International debut for India against South Africa on February 21, 2018.

In one of the Tests played in England in October 2018, Thakur finished the series with 117 runs at 39 with the bat while claiming seven wickets at 22 with the ball.
His performance was praised nationally and internationally. The Guardian wrote, “The journeyman bowler who bats transformed himself into Kapil Dev, repeatedly delivering a considered counter-attack with bat and ball that permitted not a shred of self-doubt.”
“Though his bowling might be specifically suited to English conditions, he made the absolute most of his talents,” the news portal added.
In January 2022, Thakur registered his first five-wicket haul in Test matches and also registered the best bowling figures for an Indian bowler against South Africa, which were 7/61 and 8/108.

Netravalkar career from the U-19 Indian cricketer to the US Captain
Netravalkar, a left-arm fast-medium bowler, had started his career as a cricketer as an Under-19 player and represented India in the tri-nation Tournament in South Africa. He also was the highest wicket-taker in the 2010 U-19 World Cup with eight wickets.
Eventually, he moved to the United States and continued his career as a cricketer. He debuted for the US cricket in the 2017–18 Regional Super50 tournament in the West Indies.
After a series of tournaments he played, he was named as the captain of the United States team for the 2018–19 Regional Super50 tournament in the West Indies and the 2018 ICC World Cricket League Division Three tournament in Oman.
In June 2022, Netravalkar was named as the USA’s T20I squad for the 2022 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Global Qualifier B tournament in Zimbabwe. In the following match, he became the United States’ first bowler to take a five-wicket in a T20I match.
