Learned A Lot From Olympia, Says Mom Serena Williams
Tennis ace Serena Williams stepping back into the Grand Slams and conquering it deserves much applause. The supermom on Thursday, shared a heart-warming post on Twitter, on how much she learns from her baby. The moment was when her daughter Olympia took baby steps and stumbled — and then tried again, and again.
Today I say Olympia fall… but she got back up. She fell again almost immediately…. and almost immediately she got back up again. She always had a smile on her face. I learned a lot from Olympia today. Thank you my baby love. pic.twitter.com/pn0iUCZG6Q

Williams says she is inspired by her baby girl’s willingness to try harder even if she falls down each time she tries to walk. Her post came after a long break. Sometime back she shared that as the new mom she missed her daughter’s first steps because she was training for Wimbledon.
Now that the big tournament is over, she can give her time to her baby and can watch her fall but instantly rise again and again.
Needless to say, baby Olympia has been a social media favourite. Guess the credit goes to her 23 Grand Slam champion mom who never fails to share every bit of joy with her fans. She is the best athletes in the world, a budding fashion entrepreneur and philanthropist. Still, Serena seeks out sources of inspiration from anything possible, even if it is her 10-month-old baby.
Serena last week made it to the Wimbledon final — just 10 months after giving birth.
As expected, Twitteratis went abuzz over baby Olympia’s cuteness and grit:
She gets it from her mom!

I said the same thing when my daughter was learning to walk. She kept falling, not afraid, always getting back up. Imagine what we could do if we were not afraid to fall.

The 36-year-old Williams gave birth to her daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr, in September 2017. During her pregnancy, she was ranked No 1 in the world and won the Australian Open in her first trimester. She is now the most decorated female Laureus Award winner with five Laureus statuettes as well. Serena is the second on the list of most major wins with 23 singles titles — the most recent of which came at the 2017 Australian Open.
