23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams says she thinks working mothers are superheroes and need to be recognised, while speaking to Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour at the New York Fashion Week on Tuesday. According to Time magazine, Williams who displayed her own fashion collection on Wednesday at the Fashion Week, says, “Being a mom is super important, but also being a leader so my daughter can look at me and say, ‘This is what my mom did.

 

 
I aspire to do that and I want to be better…It’s really important to me to inspire the next generation because that’s what the future is”. When Wintour asked her who her heroes are, Williams says, “My heroes have changed…after having a child, my heroes are moms because women are superheroes.

To have a baby and then have to go to work two or three weeks later or work a 9-5…I’m fortunate to not have to do that. I’m at a loss for words when I think of women who work day in and day out, providing for their families, when I know how hard it is for me to leave my daughter.

I never felt that way until I became a mom. I think women need to be recognized”. Besides being a mom, Williams continues to focus on her tennis career, her business ventures and now her fashion collection as well. Williams has a daughter, Olympia, who is 2 years old. At the recent Australian Open, she said that she had not spent a day apart from her daughter so far.

“It Was The Best Match of My Career” – Simona Halep on Playing Serena Williams at Wimbledon Finals

World Number two Simona Halep will cherish all her memories from Wimbledon 2019 finals for her entire life as she crushed the seven-time Wimbledon champion Serena Williams 6-2, 6-2 in no time.

The Romanian ace just needed 56 minutes to pull off her maiden crown at SW19. Before the match, Halep was recollecting her match from WTA Championships 2014 in Singapore.

In the group stages, she pulled off a one-sided victory against Williams by dropping just two games. But later in the finals, it was Serena lifting up the title with a 6-3, 6-0 win over Simona.

“Well, definitely it was the best match of my career, and there’s no doubt. Before the match, I was just concentrating on my memories from Singapore, when I faced her in the groups and then in the finals, and I don’t want to talk about it,” Simona Halep said at ‘lockdown’ edition of the Tennis Legends vodcast.

“On the grass, Serena Williams is the favorite” – Simona Halep
From the very first point and until the end at Wimbledon finals, Halep was calm and composed. She just committed three unforced errors, came up with no double faults, in short, the Romanian played a focused and error-free game.

During the biggest match of her career, Halep had a mindset of playing a Grand Slam final. She was focused on that, rather than playing ‘SERENA WILLIAMS.’ She was being aggressive and gave her 100% for every ball she slammed and she was ‘not letting Serena make her game.’

“I was very focused on making her move and being aggressive. Because, I knew if I do some steps backward, I cannot handle her power. So, I said, on the grass, she’s the favorite, because she has experience,” Halep continued.

“She has faced those moments many more times than me. Actually, I was there for the first time. And mentally I was strong I said, I have my chance and I have to go there.”
