'To all the moms out there, I was playing for you, and I tried...I just feel like telling all the moms, I had such a long struggle to come back and it was really difficult, and honestly I feel like if I can do it, they can do it. I'm just that person, that vessel that's saying 'you can be whatever you want to be'...' well done Serena Williams 💕 #strongmother rg @theglowdotcom
