'I Feel Like I Was Not A Good Mom' - Serena Williams

Serena Williams has penned an emotional letter admitting she feels like "not a good mom".

Williams only returned to tennis this year after she took over 12 months away from sport for her child.

The World No.1 reached Wimbledon Final last month but then feel to the worst defeat of his tennis career in San Jose last week.

British No.1 Johanna Konta thrashed Williams 6-1 6-0 in just 52 minutes and the American then withdrew from the Rogers Cup days later.

The reason for pulling out of the Rogers Cup was unclear until Williams opened up on the difficult emotional time she is currently enduring.

In a post on Instagram, Williams explained that she had been struggling with post-natal emotions.

“Last week was not easy for me,” Williams wrote on Instagram.

“Not only was I accepting some tough personal stuff, but I was in a funk.

“Mostly, I felt like I was not a good mom.

“I read several articles that said postpartum emotions can last up to three years if not dealt with.

“I like communication best. Talking things through with my mom, my sisters, my friends let me know that my feelings are totally normal.

“It’s totally normal to feel I’m not doing enough for my baby.

“We have all been there. I work a lot, I train and I'm trying to be the best athlete I can.

“However, that means although I have been with her every day of her life, I’m not around as much as I would like to be.

“Most of you moms deal with the same thing. Where stay-at-home or working, finding that balance with kids is a true are. You are the true heroes.

“I’m here to say; if you are having a rough day or week - it’s ok - I am, too!!! There’s always tomorrow!”
