She had targeted the Australian Open, which she won past year while only a few weeks pregnant, but that did not pan out after an exhibition match loss to Jelena Ostapenko last week.

She revealed that she had an emergency c-section when giving birth to Alexis Olympia.

Today, Williams is raising her daughter and has made a return to the tennis court. Williams returns to tennis in March. "It's interesting", Williams is quoted as saying.

But that's not to be confused with the idea that Serena is anxious about reclaiming her spot as number one when she returns.

"That was an unbelievable feeling", Serena recalls. I don't play to be the second best or the third best. "But if there is a clear number one, that's cool, too, because it's like, yeah, I'm gonna come for you", she added.

In the accompanying article, Williams gushes about motherhood and her dreams of collecting even more Grand Slams in the future. "I'm well aware of the record books, unfortunately".

The reports that the 7.6 magnitude makes this one of the most powerful earthquakes to hit the Caribbean in modern day history. The quake was very shallow, at only 6.2 miles (10 km), which would have amplified its effect.

At the same time, having a child has helped her feel less stressed about her athletic performance. "It's not a secret that I have my sights on 25", she said.

'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 handsome baby?" I don't need the money or the titles or the prestige. "I want to teach her that there are no limits". "That's a different feeling for me".

We're sure Olympia would have her say in the accompanying feature piece if, you know, she was old enough to talk, but the input from her mum is compelling enough on its own. Mentioning the names of Caroline Wozniacki, Svetlana Kuznetsova and Angelique Kerber, Williams said that it's important for competitors to genuinely care for and respect one another.
