Serena wins first title after becoming a mother, donates full prize money to fire victims

US veteran tennis player Serena Williams won her first title after 2 years after becoming a mother. He defeated compatriot Jessica Pegula 6-3 6-4 in the title match on Sunday to win the WTA Auckland Classic. This is his 73rd WTA title. Serena did a noble job after winning the title. He donated 62,300 Australian dollars (about 30 lakh 50 thousand rupees) in reward to the victims of the fire in Australia's forests. Serena gave birth to daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr in September 2017.

Serena, 38, won her last title in January 2017. She then defeated her elder sister Venus Williams in straight sets 6–4, 6–4 in the Australian Open final. In this way, Serena ended her title drought after about three years. The win also raised his hopes of winning the first Grand Slam Australian Open of the year from 20 January.

If Serena manages to win the Australian Open title, then Margaret Court (Jesica Pegula) will equal 24 Grand Slam titles. That is, Serena is one step away from making history. After becoming a mother, Serena stayed away from court for about 12 months. She had not won a single title since she returned to the court. During this, he had to face five finals. Four finals were from the Grand Slam tournament.

After the win, Serena Williams said her win in Auckland was the first step towards her next goal. Serena Williams said, “It is very satisfying to win in the final. I think it was really important to me. I just want to set an example this time. Obviously, this is a step towards the next goal. '

In this tournament, Serena, however, missed out on winning the women's doubles title. However, in the title match, Serena and Denmark's Carolina Wozniacki were beaten by American pair of Asiya Muhammad and Taylor Townsend 6-4, 6-4.
