Serena Williams on the February 2018 Cover of Vogue Magazine

Serena Williams definitely has a lot to smile about because before 2017 ended, she got married and gave birth to a beautiful baby girl named Alexis Ohanian. Serena along with her baby Alexis, are the February 2018 cover stars of Vogue magazine. On the cover which was shot by Marion Testino, Serena is wearing a VERSACE SPRING 2018 dress. In the issue, she talks about her pregnancy, motherhood, a tennis comeback and more. Continue below to read some excerpts from her interview. For more on Serena's feature, visit and pick up a copy on newsstand. 


On her daughter Alexis:
We’re not spending a day apart until she’s eighteen. Now that I’m 36 and I look at my baby, I remember that this was also one of my goals when I was little, before tennis took over, when I was still kind of a normal girl who played with dolls. Oh, my God, I loved my dolls. I love the way you make me feel. You’re so real.

On moving to San Francisco:
To be honest, there’s something really attractive about the idea of moving to San Francisco and just being a mom.

On wanting to win another Grand Slam:
But not yet. Maybe this goes without saying, but it needs to be said in a powerful way: I absolutely want more Grand Slams. I’m well aware of the record books, unfortunately. It’s not a secret that I have my sights on 25. And actually, I think having a baby might help. When I’m too anxious I lose matches, and I feel like a lot of that anxiety disappeared when Olympia was born. Knowing I’ve got this beautiful baby to go home to makes me feel like I don’t have to play another match. I don’t need the money or the titles or the prestige. I want them, but I don’t need them. That’s a different feeling for me.

On tennis:
I’ve been playing tennis since before my memories started. At my age, I see the finish line. And when you see the finish line, you don’t slow down. You speed up.
