TENNIS- Former world number one and 24 time Grand Slam Winner Serena Williams has tweeted that she missed the first steps of her daughter Olympia due to training.

“She took her first steps... I was training and missed it. I cried,” Williams wrote on Twitter.

Williams is currently playing at Wimbledon and reached the fourth round with a win over Kristina Mladenovic on Friday.

Olympia is with Serena in England. The American star last week posted on the Olympia’s Instagram account showing her on one of Wimbledon’s grass courts.

When asked by a reporter why she has given her daughter a public profile, Serena said, “I mean, it’s 2018. I’m so modern. For me, it was so natural. She’s so fun. I just want to share those moments with everyone. We don’t share a lot on her page, but we do share enough. It’s just so cool.”

Williams will next face Russian qualifier Evgeniya Rodina in the last 16 on Monday.
