Serena Williams on Being a Working Mom: 'Some Days, I Cry. I'm Really Sad'

Serena Williams is on the cover of Time magazine’s brand new issue.

Here’s what the tennis star had to share with the mag…

On her incredible run at 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: “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.”

On getting her 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.”

Serena Williams Opens Up About Working Mom Struggles

Serena Williams is opening up about the realities of being a working mom.

The 36-year-old tennis superstar took to her Instagram to talk about her tough week and feeling like a bad mom.

“Last week was not easy for me. Not only was I accepting some tough personal stuff, but I just was in a funk. Mostly, I felt like I was not a good mom,” Serena explained.

She continued, “I read several articles that said postpartum emotions can last up to 3 years if not dealt with…It’s totally normal to feel like I’m not doing enough for my baby. We have all been there. I work a lot, I train, and I’m trying to be the best athlete I can be. However, that means although I have been with her every day of her life, I’m not around as much as I would like to be. Most of you moms deal with the same thing.”

Serena ended her note with an uplifting message many moms need to hear.

“Whether stay-at-home or working, finding that balance with kids is a true art. You are the true heroes. I’m here to say: if you are having a rough day or week–it’s ok–I am, too!!! There’s always tomm!” Serena said.

“…and it’s that time of the day to get “randomly” drug tested and only test Serena. Out of all the players it’s been proven I’m the one getting tested the most. Discrimination? I think so. At least I’ll be keeping the sport clean #StayPositive,” Serena first tweeted.

This isn’t the first time Serena complained about getting drug tested more than other tennis players – male or female.

“Just test everyone equally,” Serena said during a pre-Wimbledon press conference earlier this month after it was reported that she has been tested five times already in 2018.

“But I’m ready to do whatever it takes to have a clean sport so bring it on. I’m excited,” Serena wrote in another tweet.

U.S. Anti-Doping Agency has not responded to Serena‘s tweets yet.
