We now have more informations regarding the reasons behind Serena Williams’s withdrawal from Montreal.
The American was in no obligation to do it, but she took to Instagram to offer a long explanation about the “personal reasons” that forced her out of the Coupe Rogers. In this case, “personal” is an understatement as Williams, as has become customary since the birth of her daughter, has gone into details about her feelings and sensations.
In this instance, Serena admitted that she was not feeling all too well and suffering from a case of “postpartum emotions”.
Williams gives hope to the mothers
“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. Whether stay-at-home or working, finding that balance with kids is a true art. You are the true heroes.”
With those words, Serena Williams once again offered encouragement and gave hope to the mothers around the world.
Like she did in Wimbledon, the 37-year-old offered her wisdom for the young mothers who struggle with maternity and juggling with a career and having a child. Inspiring words.
There’s always tomorrow
The last words of Williams’s message could apply to everyone: “There’s always [tomorrow]!”
Indeed, when having a bad day, it is something that we sometimes forget, whether we are young mother facing postpartum issues or not.
Again, very wise words from Serena Williams.
