Serena Williams writes an emotional laden letter to her mum, reveals her daughter takes after her Strong and Muscular arm

Tennis Champion, Serena Williams who welcomed a baby girl, Alexis Olympia Jr earlier this month with her man, Alex Ohanian still can’t believe she’s a mother.

The Tennis star wrote a letter to her mother, Oracene Price thanking her for being a role model and wondering how she coped on being meek and humble while people made jest of her daughter (Serena) for possessing the body of a man.

She wrote:

Dear Mom,

You are one of the strongest women I know. I was looking at my daughter (OMG, yes, I have a daughter ?) and she has my arms and legs! My exact same strong, muscular, powerful, sensational arms and body. I don’t know how I would react if she has to go through what I’ve gone through since I was a 15 year old and even to this day.

I’ve been called man because I appeared outwardly strong. It has been said that that I use drugs (No, I have always had far too much integrity to behave dishonestly in order to gain an advantage). It has been said I don’t belong in Women’s sports — that I belong in Men’s — because I look stronger than many other women do. (No, I just work hard and I was born with this badass body and proud of it).

But mom, I’m not sure how you did not go off on every single reporter, person, announcer and quite frankly, hater, who was too ignorant to understand the power of a black woman.

I am proud we were able to show them what some women look like. We don’t all look the same. We are curvy, strong, muscular, tall, small, just to name a few, and all the same: we are women and proud!

You are so classy, I only wish I could take your lead. I am trying, though, and God is not done with me yet. I have a LONG way to go, but thank you.

Thank you for being the role model I needed to endure all the hardships that I now regard as a challenges–ones that I enjoy. I hope to teach my baby Alexis Olympia the same, and have the same fortitude you have had.

Promise me, Mom, that you will continue to help. I’m not sure if I am as meek and strong as you are yet. I hope to get there one day. I love you dearly.

Your youngest of five,

Serena”

Recall that a lot of people have always mocked Serena Williams and her equal tennis star sister, Venus Williams, calling them men and prominent among them was in 2014 when The WTA suspended Shamil Tarpischev for a year and fined him $25,000 after he referred to the sisters , as the "Williams brothers" and said "it's scary when you really look at them,"
