Serena Williams' recent post reflects the bond girls in the family share

Serena Williams is expected to make her full comeback to tennis in March Serena Williams is expected to make her full comeback to tennis in March

While she's eyeing a return to tennis in March, Williams is staying busy with other projects. With her insurmountable tennis record, ability to overcome obstacles, new marriage and recent delivery to her baby Alexis Olympia, the champion has reminded us all what it means to be successful.

Olympia was born via emergency c-section, after contractions caused her heart rate to drop dangerously low. Though the doctors were initially skeptical of Williams' self-diagnosis, she was indeed correct about her condition.

Serena Williams has her sights set on "25"-meaning 25 Grand Slam victories (she now has 23), according to her interview in the February edition of Vogue".

Serena was found to have a pulmonary embolism, and the coughing it caused meant her C-section wound burst open.

One person, a registered nurse named Jo from Denver, tweeted a sharing a story of one patient she cared for - a black woman who'd had abdominal surgery - whose severe pain went ignored by multiple doctors for hours.

.

"Actually, I think having a baby might help".

The Dane had lost six straight finals before winning the Pan Pacific Open in Tokyo a month earlier and she carried that momentum to Singapore before starting the season with a solid showing in Auckland to move up to second in the world rankings.

Firstly, as a woman who's no stranger to body shamers, Williams has previously spoken about living by her own standards and accepting that it's okay not to look like everyone else.

Georgia Knocks Off Oklahoma in the Rose Bowl to Advance
Georgia linebacker Lorenzo Carter made an incredible play in the second overtime, blocking Oklahoma's go-ahead field-goal attempt. Baker Mayfield passed for 287 yards and two touchdowns with an interception and had a rare catch for a score for Oklahoma .

With Muguruza an injury doubt after withdrawing from her first two events of the year, Ukrainian Elina Svitolina, improving Frenchwoman Caroline Garcia and Julia Goerges of Germany will also attract backing after solid early form.

She returned home a week later to an entirely different type of bad news: the night nurse had fallen through.

Williams, 36, played an exhibition match in Abu Dhabi late last month but pulled out of next week's Australian Open, saying she was "super close" but not at the level needed to compete.

"I don't have time to be brought down, I've got too many things to do". It's that same negative attitude I have on the court sometimes. Serena Williams is just one of many Black moms who experience serious complications during or after childbirth, and is more clear evidence that not enough is being done to make sure Glack moms get the treatment they deserve. No one talks about the low moments-the pressure you feel, the incredible letdown every time you hear the baby cry. In fact, Black women die in labor at more than three times the rate of white mothers nationwide.

Williams loves her daughter and wants only the best for her in life. Or I'll get angry about the crying, then sad about being angry, and then guilty, like, "Why do I feel so sad when I have a lovely baby?"

"I was happy to change diapers", Ohanian explained to Vogue. I'd like her to have a normal life.
