Serena Williams' Daughter Alexis Is Clearly Her Biggest Fan at Fed Cup
Feb 16, 2018, 04:47
Serena Williams made her long-awaited comeback to tennis on Sunday but the 23-time Grand Slam title victor and former world No. 1 suffered defeat, playing alongside big sister Venus in a Fed Cup dead rubber.
She was born weighing 6lbs 14oz on 1 September, and joined her 23-time Grand Slam champion mother at her wedding to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian in Rome only 11 weeks later.
When you consider what Williams went through just last summer, it's a miracle she was able to compete at all.
And despite falling to a straight-sets loss to Demi Schuurs and Lesley Kerkhove on Sunday, the greatest player of her generation showed glimpses of her prowess in front of a sellout crowd in Asheville.
Venus credited team-mate CoCo Vandeweghe, who scored a hard fought win over Hogenkamp the day before, for paving the way."Honestly I like to think CoCo wore her down some". I feel like I'm on the right track.' She also added, 'I really don't know. "I didn't manage my time well, but I was thinking about it, in the future, how to manage it better". It's just a start.
"It was really special to be back out here with Venus and we're so happy Team USA won today", Serena Williams said in quotes published on the official Fed Cup website. While Serena lost in a doubles match playing with her sister Venus against a Dutch team, the United States still progressed to the next round of the tournament.
In a recent interview, Williams had revealed she was laid up for a month and a half after the birth of Alexis Olympia following a crisis caesarean segment. This is literally my first time traveling with the baby and everything. "I'm always going to have the best and highest expectations for myself".
She had initially targeted last month's Australian Open and a defence of her 2017 title but struggled during an exhibition match against Jelena Ostapenko in Abu Dhabi in December, forcing her to revise her plans. The Williamses have been a standout pair amongst other doubles teams on the circuit for quite a long time and have won 22 titles together.
