Serena Williams overtakes Roger Federer for most Grand Slam match wins

Tennis star Serena Williams  is stressed out! No, not because of an on-court game, but because her three-month-old is going through the painful teething problems.

The tennis star took to her Instagram account to announce Alexis Olympia Ohanian’s hurting experience. She posted a picture and shared,

“Teething aka the devil – is so hard. Poor Alexis Olympia has been so uncomfortable. She cried so much (she never cries) I had to hold her until she fell asleep.”


Williams, who gave birth to a baby girl in September this year, described herself as “so stressed” in the post. On Monday, in the plea to her more than 10 million  followers on Twitter  she revealed that seeing her baby in so much pain, she tried some home remedies to soothe the pain, reports the People magazine.
