'I want to make my daughter proud of me,' says Serena

'I want to make my daughter proud of me,' says Serena

Serena, who is married to the Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, had an emergency Caesarean section and experienced life-threatening complications after giving birth, which resulted in surgery to prevent blood clots travelling to her lungs.

"Pro-bab-ly", she said with a raised eyebrow as her voice trailed off.

"Well, she's playing unbelievable, and she's had such an awesome year last year and this year, as well", Williams said.

Williams defeated Australian No.1. Getting everything to work out is no easy feat for someone in Williams' position and it is the reason why in the past 38 years Belgian Kim Clijsters is the only mother to win Grand Slam titles - three of her four majors - after a maternity break.

She started dating Ohanian after first meeting him at a lunch in 2015.

Williams again played in her striking all-black catsuit which has raised some questions over its legality.

She's now gracing the cover of Harper's Bazaar and she recently opened up to the magazine about her struggle with postpartum depression. "It just kind of expands that, and I really, really embrace it". "Olympia was born and she had my arms, and instead of being sad and fearful about what people would say about her, I was just so happy".

"I feel like a warrior in it, like a warrior princess kind of, (a) queen from Wakanda", Williams told the press after the match, referencing the hit movie Black Panther.

Serena's return to professional tennis is made the more remarkable due to her hard childbirth nine months earlier.

The Being Serena star also revealed that she's definitely down for more kids. Serena won 82 percent of her total service points despite struggling with her second serve, and she had just 25 unforced errors.

Alongside her sister Venus, Serena will take to the doubles court on Friday against Kirsten Flipkins and Sara Errani.

"I had a lot of problems with my blood clots - and God I don't know how many I've had over the past 12 months - so there's definitely a little bit of functionality to it". "I hope I am, and I'm going to strive to be the best mom I can be".

"The customer is a girl or a woman who believes in herself, or wants to believe in herself; maybe she's feeling unconfident that day", she told Women's Wear Daily ahead of the launch.
