Serena Williams may have started as a tennis player, but she is a businesswoman at heart. She played her last matches at the Australian Open 2017, which she took home the championship title, and since then, she has been taking time off to get ready for her baby. Throughout her pregnancy, the former world number one has been keeping up with her business obligations, endorsing and promoting brands through her social media accounts. She even turned guessing her baby's gender into a commercial opportunity for SurveyMonkey!
Taking time off from the court means that the 35-year-old tennis player has a lot more time to invest into her business partnerships. She currently serves on the board of SurveyMonkey, and to promote the Internet company, she decided to play a little game with her fans to see what the gender of her baby will be.
She has admitted before that she is "a teenager at heart" and that she is "basically a millennial." So it makes sense that she has made the Silicon Valley a part of her business ventures. Also, the fact that her to-be husband Alexis Ohanian is the founder of Reddit means that she gets a lot of information through him.
But it looks like Serena is going old school when it comes to using technology to figure out the gender of her baby. She has instead chosen to find out on the day of the birth.
