Serena Williams: I love being Olympia's mom

Serena Williams commented on how it felt to be a mother to her two-year-old daughter Olympia. The American player said: "For me, she's the best thing that's happened to me and I've had so many amazing things happen to me, so that's really saying a lot.

Becoming a mom is something that I've always wanted to do, but I was getting older and [it was] not really going to happen," Serena said on Sept. 9. "I love being her mom, and it's such a great feeling. For me, she's the best thing that's happened to me and I've had so many amazing things happen to me, so that's really saying a lot."

Williams added: "I feel definitely evolved, but the other day we were at dinner and I'm like, 'How am I a mom?! How did that happen?' I remember being pregnant, but it feels like a lifetime ago. I was just hanging out with my friends, and I was like, 'I'm a mom!' It's weird!" The seven-time Grand Slam winner Mats Wilander believes that Serena Williams doesn't have the intimidation factor over her opponents anymore.

The Swede said: "Her ability to intimidate other players is set to disappear, especially for the younger players. She has not been pretty consistent over the last four or five years and she has not won enough titles. Most of the people who probably thought that there would have been less chances to beat her, changed their mind."
