London: Serena Williams' baby has just taken her first steps at Wimbledon, but she doesn't want daughter Olympia to follow in her path on the tennis court. Williams gave birth in September and has brought Olympia with her to Wimbledon.

Over the weekend, Serena revealed she had missed Olympia walking for the first time while she was away at a practice session. Asked if she would like Olympia to follow in her footsteps when she grows up, the American star said: "I would hope she doesn't play tennis. It's a lot of work. A lot. Plus, I don't want her to have pressure from what I did. People talking about, 'are you going to be able to do as good as your mom?'. I don't want her to have that."
