Hlavackova latest mom-to-be

Andrea Hlavackova, a 32-year-old Czech currently ranked No. 8 in the world in doubles, will be off the court for awhile.

She announced on her Instagram, in conjunction with a story on the WTA Tour’s website, that she and husband Fabrizio Sestini are expecting a baby this summer.

Hlavackova and countrywoman Barbora Strycova played in the Tour Finals in Singapore last October. But she hasn’t yet played in 2019.

“It was definitely something we planned in our lives, though it happened quicker than we expected,” Sestini-Hlavackova said.

She and Sestini, a tournament-relations director for the WTA, married in July, 2017.
