Retired Chinese tennis queen Li Na will soon play a whole new role in her life — to be a mom.

The two-time Grand Slam winner announced on Monday of January 19 that she is expecting her first child. The announcement was met with thunderous cheers and applause from spectators in Rod Laver Arena where Li lifted the Australian Open title in 2014, her second Grand Slam championship since the French Open in 2011.

“I choose to share my secret here with fans from all over the world,” said Li. “This summer, the first baby of Jiang Shan’s and mine will come to this world.”

“I can’t wait to have this new chapter in our lives,” she added.

The 32-year-old retired during last year’s China Open in October.

Li Na’s motherhood zeal

continues at Australian Open

China’s two-time Grand Slam champion Li Na is excited about starting a family with husband Jiang Shan after announcing her pregnancy at the Australian Open.

On Monday, when officially opening the tournament which she won in 2014, Li shocked the crowd with her baby news.

She said on Tuesday that she had waited since November to reveal the news at the place she had won her second Grand Slam.

“Melbourne, for me, is a special area so I know this is a big moment for me,” Li said in a press conference.

“I wanted to speak to all my fans, my friends.

“When I (found out), I was feeling this is the best gift I got. ”

After making the tough decision to retire following chronic injuries, Li said she was looking forward to becoming a housewife.

“It is my dream to be a housewife. I think every child learns from the family,” said the woman from China’s central Wuhan province. “I learnt from my mum, so I felt the woman has to be the housewife.

“But I guess I’m not bad at playing tennis.”

Li retired in September last year, only seven months after reaching the number two ranking.

Now, besides motherhood, she is focused on choosing a location for her tennis academy, the first in China.

“Right now, the Chinese are very interested in tennis. When I said I wanted to have a tennis academy, all of China invited me,” she said.

“Now, I have many choices.”

Li also endorsed Japan’s Kei Nishikori to take her mantle as Asia’s tennis ace.

“I saw him play (the U.S. Open) final on TV,” Li said.

“I think he is an amazing player. It is not easy to be in the top.

“I know how hard working he is so I believe he can win a Grand Slam. Seriously.”

On the lighter side, the media favorite has not stopped her joking since retirement. Asked whether, in another life, she would choose to be a tennis player, Li said yes.

“I will still choose tennis,” she said, before adding with a smile, “I would still choose being a famous Asian as well.”
