1 Smart Tennis Mama

In all the talk about what Serena Williams did and said and apologized for, here are a few details about the winner, Kim Clijsters, that you may not have heard:

  • She's a mom.
  • She was in retirement for 2.5 years before returning to tennis.
  • She was the first unseeded play to win the U.S. Open.
  • "No mother had captured a major since ... 1980 at Wimbledon."
"'She's playing because she thinks it's fun and because she likes it,' Wozniacki [second place] said. 'I really think she might be a better player now than she was before.'"

It's great to see some recognition for a Smart Mama who knows what perseverance means.

So in that spirit, I want to recognize each and every one of you Smart Mamas who choose perseverance every day. Way to go!
