MELBOURNE, Australia - Li Na made a very special announcement at her very best Grand Slam on Monday, telling the Rod Laver Arena crowd that she and husband Dennis are expecting their first child.

Li wasn't only one of the tournament's biggest champions over the last several years - she reached finals here in 2011 and 2013, and then went one step further by winning the title in 2014 - but she was also one of its most popular champions, making some legendary trophy ceremony speeches. One of the recurring themes in those speeches was poking fun at her husband, for various reasons.

But this time she gave him some major props, in terms of the announcement, of course.

"I think Dennis is doing a good job - he just made one ace," the lovable Chinese said.
