Serena Williams put her domination of the international tennis world on hold last year to focus on her marriage and give birth to her daughter, Alexis Olympia. Per Variety, HBO docuseries “Being Serena” will chronicle Williams’ journey through pregnancy, marriage, birth and her return to tennis. The five-part series is set to premiere on May 2.
As she says in the above teaser trailer, which debuted online yesterday (March 26), that journey was not an easy one. “When I realized that I was pregnant, I was like, ‘Oh my God! How am I going to play?’” she said. “I put so much pressure on myself. I want to make sure that I’m the best.”
Though she stumbled last week at the Miami Open, Williams is clear about her intentions in the trailer: “I don’t know if there’s anything left for me in tennis, but I’m not done yet.”
