Regrann from @120effort - "Nothing about me right now is perfect. But I'm perfectly Serena."
Repost from @time - No modern athlete has reached @serenawilliams' level of stardom has ever returned from so difficult a childbirth, at her age, in a grueling individual sport like #tennis, to claim a major global championship. And since #Wimbledon, she's faced a particularly rough stretch in her personal life. The man who killed her older sister Yetunde Price was released from prison. The postpartum symptoms haven't fully gone away, and she says separating herself from Olympia, her 11-month-old daughter with her husband, tech entrepreneur Alexis Ohanion, has become even harder. Why keep at it? "I'm not done yet, simple," she tells Time. She needs tennis as much as the sport needs her. It's the one thing, as a mother, she can do solely for herself. "My story doesn't end here." Serena has won 23 Grand Slam single titles, one short of Margaret Court's all-time record. The U.S. Open, which begins on Aug. 27 in New York City, is her last chance to even the score this year. - #regrann
