Thanks to reader Frank Lambert, Women’s Tennis Blog can share with you the pictures of pregnant Kateryna Bondarenko. The news of the Ukrainian tennis player’s pregnancy appeared online some months ago, but now we have the photo proof. Apparently, we will very soon have another tennis baby. Just a month ago Belgian WTA legend Justine Henin gave birth to a baby girl.
The 26-year-old Kateryna got married in September 2011, to Kiev businessman Denis Volodko. She hasn’t played on the Tour since losing to Jelena Jankovic in the first round of the 2012 US Open. Kateryna’s highest singles ranking was No.29 and she’s won one WTA title, the 2008 Birmingham.
Kateryna’s two years older former Top 20 tennis star sister Alona is also married. Her wedding to coach Nikolay Dyachok was in 2010 and she hasn’t played since losing to Bojana Jovanovski in the first round of Moscow in 2011. The sisters won the 2008 Australian Open doubles title together.
