Grand slam champion Serena Williams opened up about her struggle with postpartum emotions. In a lengthy post on her Instagram, she shared that she felt like she wasn’t a good mother to her daughter, Olympia.
She also touched on how her hectic schedule takes left her with little time to spend with her daughter, and ended her post off with a reminder to new moms to stay positive.
She suffered a 6-1 6-0 loss to Johanna Konta in the first round of Silicon Valley Classic last week, the heaviest defeat of her career.
The 23-time grand slam singles champion subsequently withdrew from the Rogers Cup, a WTA Premier 5 event staged in Montreal. And Williams has now used social media to offer an insight into her frame of mind, urging other mothers to take a positive attitude to mental health issues and the daily challenge of being a parent
