Serena Williams: It's been a long journey back

Adjust Comment Print

To celebrate Williams' return to the U.S. Open finals, her husband, Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian, had a video created from his own footage, and he posted it on his Twitter account. Williams emotionally had told him that she does not cheat and has a daughter for whom she tries to set an example.

A win this weekend would give Williams her record 24th Grand Slam singles title and tie her with Margaret Court for the all-time record of the most Grand Slam singles titles ever.

The 23-time Grand Slam victor screamed at Ramos: 'Every time I play here, I have problems.

Seemingly motivated by the violation, Williams went on a mini-run to take a 3-2 lead, but her momentum was stymied after Osaka produced a critical serve break. The caption reads "Did Momma win?" in reference to Williams' match versus Anastasija Sevastova.

"I really feel like I don't want to overthink this match, so I'm not going to think that she's so much better than she was in Miami".

The women's final is at the Arthur Ashe Stadium in NY at 4 p.m. local time. Williams joked her daughter also had winning on the brain by captioning the sweet photo, "Did Momma win?"

Mueller interview would be a 'waste of time'
Trump has said he knew nothing about the meeting before it happened. "We aren't going to let them spring it on us", he said. He also refuted an earlier report that President Trump has ruled out a sit-down interview with Robert Mueller .

"You owe me an apology, " she said.

"If he gives me a thumbs up, he's telling me to come on", explained Williams.

"How dare you insinuate that I was cheating?"

It's not the first time emotional outbursts have cost Williams at the US Open.

Despite facing one of the biggest controversies of her career to date, Williams, just like mums across the globe do every day, returned to her role of mother with a smile on her face. "Can't say I hate it". There were multiple examples on social media, including video of Roger Federer repeatedly telling a chair umpire, "Don't (expletive) talk to me" during the 2009 U.S. Open men's final, and Jimmy Connors famously called an official an abortion repeatedly during a U.S. Open match in 1991.
