In 2017, the former grand slam champion gave birth to her daughter, Alexis Olympia. Earlier that year, she had even won the Australian Open while she was pregnant. Recently, the 23-time grand slam winner headlined the Fast Company Most Productive People List. She received this honor due to her ability to find a balance in her life. She uses the Toggle app and this in part adds to her ability to multitask with regard to handling her child, the business, and being at the top of her game on the tennis court.

Williams stated, “It’s [the Toggle app] is really good for me because at the end of the day I can say how much time I spent on each area of her life and how it adds up. I want my percentage with my daughter to be a lot.”

Her husband, Alexis Ohanian, felt really proud of his wife for making it to Fast Company’s Most Productive People List and put up a Twitter post that said, Another one! Proud to see you shine in everything you do Serena Williams.”
