Days after our baby girl was born, I kissed my wife goodbye before surgery and neither of us knew if she would be coming back.— Alexis Ohanian Sr. 7️⃣7️⃣6️⃣ (@alexisohanian) July 14, 2018
We just wanted her to survive—10 months later, she's in the #Wimbledon final.@serenawilliams will be holding a trophy again … https://t.co/W3eJQoHkTj pic.twitter.com/anN4dFr7O9
The commitment and courage to persevere, to overcome dire health challenges, to nurture and birth a child, then, less than a year later, compete in a Wimbledon championship finals match? Greatness. Greatest. Congratulations and thank you, @serenawilliams. #SerenaWilliams pic.twitter.com/6rOmxsRFKl— Be A King (@BerniceKing) July 14, 2018
Epic day. With incredible grace, @serenawilliams showed us what a legend is made of. Even without winning, she won. Her journey back to center court is beyond inspiring. https://t.co/wVdrEJw3BA pic.twitter.com/nxe998VXKP— shonda rhimes (@shondarhimes) July 14, 2018
Serena Williams is an absolute inspiration to us all, especially mama’s.— Tika Sumpter (@iamtikasumpter) July 14, 2018
Serena Williams came back from pregnancy to make it to the finals of Wimbledon at almost 37 years old. That’s greatness.— Everette Taylor (@Everette) July 14, 2018
Despite the loss, she’s still the GOAT.
Seriously, Serena Williams is the greatest athlete in the world. An entirely appropriate conclusion after almost dying in childbirth, having to recover while being a new parent, and STILL making it to the Wimbledon Final at 36.— Charlotte Clymer 🏳️🌈 (@cmclymer) July 14, 2018
Much respect for both Serena Williams and Angie Kerber. Just to make it back to the Wimbledon finals after having a baby is amazing. Serena is still the GOAT.— Keith Boykin (@keithboykin) July 14, 2018

She was aiming to tie the all-time record in Grand Slam titles in tennis just *FOUR* events after her return from giving birth & having life threatening birth complications... A living Legend! #Wimbledon pic.twitter.com/zWvzoRazgD

Yooo Serena Williams is 36, gave birth nine months ago— MADE IN Ⓣokyo 🇯🇵 (@madeintyo) July 14, 2018
still pulled up to the Wimbledon Final, regardless. Legend. ✨
Serena Williams gave birth 10 months ago and suffered severe complications. She could barely walk out of her house eight months ago.— D'Arcy Maine (@darcymaine_espn) July 14, 2018
Today she played in the final at Wimbledon. Regardless of what the score says, she’s an absolute champion in every way.
