FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailCarl Court/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Motherhood and marriage have not slowed Serena Williams.The trailer for her new HBO docu-series “Being Serena” makes that much clear.“When I realized I was pregnant, I was like, ‘Oh, my god! How am I going to play?’” Williams says in the trailer released this week. “I put so much pressure on myself — I want to make sure that I’m the best. I don’t know if there’s anything left for me in tennis, but I’m not done yet.”Besides listing the many titles Williams wears — record-breaker, icon, mogul, wife, mother — the brief clip shows Williams working out while pregnant, spending time with baby Alexis Olympia, exchanging vows with her husband, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, making business decisions for her brand and, of course, smashing balls on the tennis court.Earlier this month, Williams, 36, notched her first singles win since giving birth at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, California.The win came after Williams bowed out of the Australian Open in January, four months after having her daughter.“After competing in Abu Dhabi I realized that although I am super close, I’m not where I personally want to be,” Williams said in a statement at the time, according to The Associated Press.Earlier, Williams opened up about the complications she endured during Alexis’ birth, telling Vogue magazine she underwent multiple operations after sustaining a pulmonary embolism the day after she gave birth via emergency C-section.The 23-time Grand Slam winner said she spent the first six weeks of motherhood unable to get out of bed.“Being Serena” will give viewers an intimate look at Williams during pregnancy, new motherhood, marriage and more. The five-part series will begin airing on May 2 on HBO.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailcmannphoto/iStock(NEW YORK) — Will the NBA resume its season this year? That’s the question many of the league’s executives and employees are debating right now.Last month, the NBA suspended its season due to the novel coronavirus outbreak. The move came after Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus. Since then, several other players around the league have tested positive, as well.Now, as May is approaching and social distancing efforts appear to be making a positive impact, league executives and team medical personnel are said to be discussing potential plans to get players ready to take the court again.Sources tell ESPN one idea that has been brought up is a 25-day program.“Under the plan, players would go through an 11-day stretch of individual workouts in which they could maintain some measure of social distancing while ramping up training and activity,” ESPN reports. “Then, if permitted by medical officials, the idea would be to allow for a two-week training camp with entire teams participating.”It remains to be seen if this program or any other ideas will get a chance to be implemented as the status of the season’s resumption is still up in the air.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
