Serena Williams opens up about her battle with postpartum depression

Serena Williams opens up about her battle with postpartum depression

Williams wants her daughter to know her as a great champion, not just as a mother. The opening set went with serve and eventually to a tie-break in which Williams bounced back from 3-0 down to clinch it.

Williams welcomed daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr in September previous year with husband Alexis Ohanian, and she has previously told of the life-threatening health complications that arose during the birth. One break was enough for the Australian to take it 6-3. And I don't want to get there.

Though she is the most successful female player of the open era, with a ranking of 451 in the world she is not seeded in Roland Garros.

Get through that, and Williams would face either five-time major champion Maria Sharapova or 2016 US Open runner-up Karolina Pliskova.

Serena recently admitted that she nearly died delivering Olympia as she had to undergo an emergency caesarean section but experienced life-threatening complications, which resulted in surgery to prevent blood clots travelling to her lungs.

At this point, it is a well known fact that Serena's husband and father of her daughter is just the sweetest, most loving and most supportive man ever!

As you can imagine, waves of support flooded in, with users likening her "Wakanda-inspired" (in Williams' own words) outfit to that of a superhero and proclaiming her the G.O.A.T. - which, let's be honest, she probably is. Now it will be Görges's turn to see if she can capitalize on Williams's continuing search for top form.
