"If you want to go back to work, and to me after becoming a mum, I feel like there's no pressure to do that because having a child is a completely full-time job". Yet, Williams' showed an vast degree of maturity and good sportsmanship as she complimented her opponent, thanked her fans and supporters, and laid the truth down without reservation in front of a packed building and an audience of millions watching around the world.
