In just her fourth tournament back from maternity leave Serena Williams found herself in a place quite familiar to her, a Wimbledon final. Although, she lost to Germany’s Angelique Kerber in a straight set win Serena can still leave London with her held high.
She walked into Wimbledon ranked well into the 100s and now sits at 28. Many commentators doubted whether she still had the physical and mental capacity to reach the major platforms she once did before giving birth to her daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr.
Once again she proved that grit and tenacity can take you far in life. She posted this to her Instagram, which boasts over 8 million followers, “These past 2 weeks was amazing. It also was a sound for all moms stay home and working you can do it you really can!….Road to the US Open is next! Stay strong no matter what. Oh and this is just the beginning.”
