Serena Williams Wins First Title Since Having Her Daughter; Donates Winnings To Australian Bushfire Relief
Serena Williams reigns once again!
The tennis ace snatched her first title since 2017 today when she triumphed at the Auckland Open.
Williams slayed the ASB Classic, defeating Jessica Pegula 6-3, 6-4.
It marks her first title win since giving birth to three-year-old daughter Alexis Olympia – who she ironically was pregnant with at the time.
Speaking after the game, Williams gushed:
“It feels good. 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.”
In a commendable move, Williams revealed she will donate the $43,000 prize to the relief effort for the Australian bushfire.
