Serena Williams Fans Go Crazy Over Her Big Announcement

Serena Williams Fans Go Crazy Over Her Big Announcement

There are precedents for mothers winning Grand Slam titles, most recently Kim Clijsters, who claimed three of her four Majors after giving birth to her first child in 2008.

"It's been really, really hard, but I keep going, and I know that I might not be at my best yet, but I'm getting there and every day is a new day and every day I should be getting better".

On Thursday, she will play in Indian Wells, California, which according to The Guardian is not among her favorite places to play. "It would be so fun - the help that we could do, and the awareness and the athletes and the incredible players that would come out of Africa would just be unbelievable", she said.

Williams has played just one Fed Cup doubles match while away from the WTA Tour.

That, and the chance to stick it to those who've tried to put her and her fellow females down all her life. She ends her post with "Thanks for the support I look forward to seeing you out there!"

The tennis superstar is also speaking up about the need for improved maternal health care, particularly for black women.

Aldon Smith turns himself in to SFPD
Former Oakland Raiders linebacker Aldon Smith turned himself in to San Francisco police on Tuesday and was booked at 3:25 p.m. The Raiders released Smith on Monday. "I'm anxious about him", said a source close to Smith, according to TMZ Sports.

Also playing were elder sister Venus Williams, who has wrestled with the debilitating Sjogren's syndrome since 2011 but has remained within the elite ranks of tennis, and a year ago reached two Major finals plus the semis of another. After several surgeries she spent six weeks in bed.

"Just the feeling of getting back to world No. 1 is deeply gratifying because today when you're older you know how much work you've put into it". Williams's sister, Yetunde Price was the victim of a drive-by shooting on September 14, 2003, in Compton, as she drove in her SUV with her boyfriend.

Williams' only competitive appearances since the birth came in December at an exhibition in Abu Dhabi, a Fed Cup doubles match with sister Venus last month and an exhibition in NY on Monday. "I'm just excited to be back and playing here, in Madison Square Garden".

The American is unseeded in the tournament this year and did not receive a first-round bye.

In conjunction with her sister Venus, Serena has also developed an organisation to help the victims of what she describes as "senseless violence". In the Round of 128 of the Indian Wells competition, Serena will go up against 24-year-old Zarina Diyas of Kazakhstan.
