Serena Williams has won her first tennis title since becoming a mother three years ago.
On Sunday, Williams emerged victorious at the ASB Classic in Auckland, New Zealand, on Sunday, after defeating fellow American Jessica Pegula 6-3, 6-4.
Clearly filled with emotion, after scoring the final point, Williams — whose last title win came in January 2017, while she was still pregnant with daughter Alexis Olympia — lifted her hands into the air as the crowd burst into thunderous cheers.
Williams was later joined by her daughter on the court as the proud mom lifted her trophy into the air.
“It feels good,” Williams said afterward, according to CNN. “It’s been a long time. I’ve been waiting two years for this moment. I think you could see the relief on my face.”
