Serena Williams' Wimbledon Final Appearance Inspires Moms

Her post-game interview will have you in tears

Is there anything this superstar cannot do?

Serena Williams may not have won this year's Wimbledon Ladies Final, but the sheer fact she earned her spot in the final is inspiring mother's around the world.

I actually heard Serena's voice crack for the first time ever in her post-match interview. 

"It was such a great tournament for me...I was really happy to get this far."

Serena gave birth to her daughter, Olympia, just ten months ago and this is only the fourth tournament she's played since returning to professional tennis.

If you recall, Serena's labor and delivery was not an easy one. She had to go through multiple surgeries post-labor and become and advocate for her own health before celebrating the life of her baby girl.

Ultimately, Serena's appearance in Wimbledon this year (much less the final) proves that moms can do anything we set our minds to. While we're so accustomed to doing things for others, this comeback proves it pays to pursue our dreams as well...even (and especially!) after our children are born.
