10 months ago Serena Williams gave birth, it was a complicated procedure and she had to have multiple surgeries and almost lost her life. She returned to training four months later and as ever works incredibly hard.
In her fourth tournament back (Wimbledon) she made the final and has taken her from not having a ranking to number 28 in the world.
A lesson to us all, never write this woman off but also what a woman she is. The way she has balanced life on the tour and being a mum shows how strong she is and women are.
Seconds into her interview on Centre Court following the defeat she was emotional. She didn’t expect to do so well but said something which you don’t forget and you know is true of her character
“I’m literally only just getting started”
We don’t have a schedule for Serena right now but she won’t be playing week in week out focus will be on other titles. I expect her to go to Cincinnati which is two weeks before the US Open and will arrive there a week early. Will she go to Rogers Cup in Montreal the week before Cincinnati? I’m not sure!
Welcome back Serena!
