In September 2014 Li Na announced her retirement, revealing that one of her goals in the after-tennis life is to start a family. Having won the 2014 Australian Open title, the Chinese is among rare players in history not to return to Melbourne Park to defend her hard-earned trophy, actually the only one not to do that on account of retirement (stay tuned, we will have a detailed insight into this topic in a guest post soon), but she’s not wasting time, and neither is her husband.
A week before her nine-year marriage anniversary with Jiang Shan, Li traveled to the place of her big triumph and emotionally told the Rod Laver Arena crowd that she was pregnant and then jokingly added that Dennis “just made one ace”. The baby is arriving this summer. Congratulations!

What great news! I´m so happy for both! They seem so nice to me! They deserve it so much!
Nicole, for sure, even Sharapova pointed out after her victory today how Li will be a great mom.
Congrats! It is a new step for Li Na. Only good days are coming
Tennis Island, she’ll certainly enjoy family life having traveled around the world for years.
Fantastic news! I think Li wants a girl. Marija, I am sure you will post the first baby pictures on your blog.
Jim, whichever gender, it will sure be a cute baby. I mean, just look how cute Li was as a kid:
I laughed so hard when she said, He was good, he only place one ace. and i was like “Do you mean, Yall did it once and you were knocked up ” ?
