Mandy Minella has a baby girl


Mandy Minella remained on court right through Wimbledon, despite her visible baby bump.

And on Oct. 30, she gave birth to Emma Lina.


Minella’s husband, Tim Sommer, is also her coach.

The Luxembourgeoise’s baby girl adds to the plethora of daughters on the WTA Tour in recent years – most recently and notably Serena Williams’s baby Alexis Olympia.

Victoria Azarenka, with son Leo, bucked the trend.

Given how late in her pregnancy Minella played, it wouldn’t be a shock to see her right back on Tour early in the new year.
