Speaking at a press conference at the US Open, Serena was asked whether she had thought about how she would celebrate Olympia's first birthday. She gave birth to Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. on September 1, 2017.

But even though it seems like Olympia will be growing up without knowing the meaning of having a birthday party, she gets celebrated every day by her parents who can not stop posting cute pics of her on social media.

Serena who lost to Petra Kvitova in the second round in Cincinnati Masters pulled a great stunt in an hour and nine minutes to clinch victory in her first round match.

Last month, Serena opened up about feeling unfit as a mother.

The six-time champion and new mum is back at Flushing Meadows for the first time since a semi-final defeat by Karolina Pliskova in 2016. But she has endured a hard start to life on the professional Tour and arrived at the US Open without a win at Tour-level since the French Open.

It's a shame they would play each other so early in the tournament. The belief that she could make that dream a reality has stayed with her every step, swing and serve of her career. Venus was diagnosed with Sjogren's syndrome years ago, an autoimmune disorder that causes fatigue and joint pain.

"It began with a pulmonary embolism, which is a condition in which one or more arteries in the lungs becomes blocked by a blood clot. 'This sparked a slew of health complications that I am lucky to have survived".
