36-year-old tennis pro Serena Williams is on the new cover of TIME Magazine and in it she reveals a lot.
On Wimbledon: “I dedicated that to all the moms out there who’ve been through a lot. Some days, I cry. I’m really sad. I’ve had meltdowns. It’s been a really tough 11 months. If I can do it, you guys can do it too.”
On finding a balance between her professional and personal life: “I still have to learn a balance of being there for her, and being there for me. I’m working on it. I never understood women before, when they put themselves in second or third place. And it’s so easy to do. It’s so easy to do.” And on getting her much-talked-about body back: “I looked at Olympia, and I was like, ‘Listen, Mommy needs to get her body back, so Mommy’s going to stop now.’ We had a really good conversation. We talked it out.” Check out Serena’s cover below and for more of her interview click here:
