A difficult decision considering the number of titles that the former world number one tennis player has obtained: twenty-three Grand Slam titles, five-time winner of the WTA Finals, winning the Olympic medal at the London 2012 Olympics.

The youngest of the Williams sisters, however, does not opt ​​for any of the trophies listed. Just as she does not choose any of the numerous titles won in the doubles, including the Grand Slam.

In a post posted on Instagram, Serena Williams explained that the most special trophy she has won in her career is ASB Classic 2020. The WTA tournament that takes place in Auckland, New Zealand, is in the heart of the American tennis player because it is the first one she has won after returning from motherhood.

Sister Williams retired in 2017 due to the pregnancy of her first and only child, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr, her return, however, was in 2018, at Indian Wells. Despite the Wimbledon and US Open finals, the former world number one has failed to win any titles.

The much desired moment arrives in Auckland: Serena Williams wins her 73rd WTA title, winning against Jessica Pegula with a score of 6-3 6-4. She had the chance to make a double by winning the doubles tournament with Caroline Wozniacki, but they failed.

The message on social media

In the post published on Instagram, Serena William explains why the Auckland trophy was the most important of her career. She wrote on a social post on Instagram, with a pic of the trophy: "You’ve seen me hold trophy after trophy in my career.

This one was extra special because it was the first time I got to show my daughter that her mom is a champion. The real achievement isn’t the hardware though, it’s the happiness behind it."
