Tennis star, Serena Williams recorded her first win since 2017 and hit a major milestone on Sunday in her journey since becoming a mom.

Serena Williams appeared to be in high spirits over the weekend as she won her first title since she welcomed her daughter, Alexis Olympia, in 2017.

“It feels good. It’s been a long time. I think you can see the relief on my face,” Williams said after defeating fellow American Jessica Pegula 6-3, 6-4 at the ASB Classic in Auckland, New Zealand.

Williams’ daughter was in the crowd to watch her mom win, taking it all in while sitting on the lap of her dad.

“She’s so fun,” Serena Williams said about Alexis. “I’m a little biased but she’s so cute.”

To celebrate her victory, Williams had taken to Twitter to share two photos.
