Serena Williams advanced into the second week of the US Open on Saturday, September 5, surviving a third-round scare from fellow American Sloane Stephens before winning 2-6, 6-2, 6-2 in her toughest test so far at this year's tournament.
Serena had her two biggest cheerleaders by her side, husband Alexis Ohanian and three-year-old daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr.
Serena hoped her baby saw her momma fighting, but 'I don't think she was paying attention, between you and me.'
'She may have been playing with some princesses upstairs.'
The 38-year-old six-time US Open champion has made the finals in four majors since she returned from maternity leave in 2018, coming up just short each time.
