Serena Williams's husband Alexis Ohanian celebrated her return to the US Open final with a touching Twitter tribute interspersing video of her on-court exploits and the first days of their daughter Olympia a year ago. Williams suffered life threatening complications after the birth on September 1 of last year, requiring four surgeries to deal with blood clots.

"She fought for her life, for our child, for recognition, for equal pay, for women's rights. She never gives up. I had this made for @serenawilliams last night after her match with some home videos from 1 year ago this week. Help me make sure she sees it! #iloveyouserena," Ohanian tweeted.

Serena Williams recently lost the final of the women's singles at the US Open to Naomi Osaka, where she was seen having rather ill-tempered altercations with the chair umpire and the match referee.
