I Don’t Want My Daughter To Play Tennis – Serena Williams

Tennis super star, Serena Williams, in a new interview with Vogue Magazine said she doesn’t want her baby daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian, Jr. to play tennis when she grows up.

In her words:

“I would hate her to have to deal with comparisons or expectations. It’s so much work, and I’ve given up so much. I don’t regret it, but it’s like Sliding Doors: Go through a different door and lead a different life. I’d like her to have a normal life. I didn’t have that” she said.

She went on to say, “I think sometimes women limit themselves. I’m not sure why we think that way, but I know that we’re sometimes taught to not dream as big as men, not to believe we can be a president or a CEO, when in the same household, a male child is told he can be anything he wants. I’m so glad I had a daughter. I want to teach her that there are no limits.”
