Barbora Krejcikova and Roger Federer were the subjects of the latest tennis April Fool's Day rumors. Krejcikova's is more believable than the Federer joke, but neither is true.

A quote attributed to Krejcikova read in part: "I want to share the good news that me and Pavel are welcoming a baby into our family this year!"
