"She fought for her life, for our child, for recognition, for equal pay, for women's rights", the Reddit co-founder wrote.

It was a long road back - Williams has been very candid about her struggles with postpartum depression, getting well after surgery, and her fears about motherhood - and it's phenomenal that just a year after experiencing so many health problems, Williams is back at the top of her game.

On the other hand, Naomi Osaka has become the first ever tennis player from Japan to hold a grand slam title as she beat Williams 6-2, 6-4 in the summit face-off at the Arthur Ashe Stadium in NY.

Naomi ended up winning her first Grand Slam title following the controversial decision.


The 23-time Grand Slam singles champion got into a shouting match with the umpire in the US Open's Women's final as she accused him of "stealing a point from her". "Since I already know she's a good player, I don't want to be surprised if she plays better or not". "She never gives up", Ohanian tweeted, along with a video that included private footage from a year ago this week.

Speaking about her daughter in HBO documentary series Being Serena: "For so many years, I defined myself in just one way: by success, by championships, by making history".

The 23-time Grand Slam victor screamed at Ramos: 'Every time I play here, I have problems.

Williams will face Naomi Osaka Saturday at 4 p.m. ET at Arthur Ashe Stadium for the title.


Her husband also had a touching message for the tennis legend. "I don't cheat to win, I'd rather lose".

"A year ago I was fighting for literally my life at the hospital after I had the baby", said Williams, who is ranked No. 26 in the world.

"I can't sit here and say I wouldn't say he's a thief, because I thought he took a game from me", Williams said.
