Serena Williams is simply epic. The best female tennis player of all time and one of the best athletes.
HBO and IMG did a short documentary series about Serena’s life since she won the Australian Open in 2017 and discovered she was pregnant.
Her husband Alexis seems sweet and geeky, her family especially the also awesome Venus Williams very sweet. And her daughter Alexis is adorable.
I also didn’t know how dangerous her c-section was and how tough the week after Alexis was born was for her.
And that as a 23 time Grand Slam tennis champion, tennis was her life. If she wanted to retire as the GOAT after Australia that would be understandable at 36. It’s totally different once you have a baby.
I root for her to recover from her injury at the French Open very recently and do well in tennis for the next few years.
Kim Clijsters won three slams after having a child. Evonne Goolagong and Margaret Court also won slams. http://baseline.tennis.com/article/65537/top-wta-mothers-who-won-slams-after-giving-birth
I would also totally understand if she wanted to retire at any time.
Serena Williams is totally amazing and epic no matter what she does.
We are lucky to see anyone perform at her level.
