By Stacy Lambe
Serena Williams is closing out 2017 with a look back at the first four months of newborn daughter Alexis Olympia’s life.
The tennis star, who has been sharing highlights from a big professional and personal year, ended her recap with a spotlight on her daughter with husband Alexis Ohanian.
“My final top 10 moment of 2017. Of course includes @olympiaohanian they say save the best for last. I could not choose so I just choose 10 random videos. They all were so cute to me,” Williams wrote on Instagram with a slideshow of adorable clips, including one funny moment when Ohanian carries his daughter like a “baby football.”
In addition to all the fun moments on Instagram, the 36-year-old athlete returned to the tennis court on Saturday to play her first match since giving birth in September. Williams, who rocked the court in an all-black ensemble, lost 10-5 to Jelena Ostapenko in an exhibition match in Abu Dhabi.
After her match on Saturday, Williams admitted it felt a bit strange to return to the court, sharing that motherhood was still at the top of her mind. "Motherhood is phenomenal...I was a little worried out there. I looked at my camp and was like 'is Olympia okay?'” she related in a post-match interview.
