Serena Williams is probably the best tennis player in the modern era. Over the years, she has given some memorable performances. Serena has faced her own sister on the court countless times, but the intensity never dropped due to her obvious emotional attachment with Venus. However, Serena was not sure of the same as a mother.

The 41-year-old believes that her motherly instincts will overpower her love for the sport if her daughter is present at the stadium. The former world number one said that she won’t take her daughter to the matches because all the time she will be worried about her and won’t be able to focus on the match.
