Serena Williams has opened up about how her 10-month-old daughter, Alexis Olympia, taught her a valuable lesson on Thursday. Sharing a snap of her youngster sat in a high chair on Twitter, the tennis champion wrote: "Today I say Olympia fall... but she got back up. She fell again almost immediately... and almost immediately she got back up again. She always had a smile on her face. I learned a lot from Olympia today. Thank you my baby love." Serena's fans were quick to discuss the adorable snap, with one writing: "I said the same thing when my daughter was learning to walk. She kept falling, not afraid, always getting back up. Imagine what we could do if we were not afraid to fall."

Serena had a difficult birth, and had a cesarean-section delivery due to complications. Speaking about her birth following her defeat in the Wimbledon final in mid-July, Serena's husband Alexis Ohanian wrote: "Days after our baby girl was born, I kissed my wife goodbye before surgery and neither of us knew if she would be coming back. We just wanted her to survive – 10 months later, she's in the #Wimbledon final… @serenawilliams will be holding a trophy again soon – she's got the greatest one waiting at home for her. Our family knows she'll win many more trophies, too. She's just getting started. And I couldn't be more proud."
