Serena Williams One Step Closer to First Tennis Title as a Mom

小威有望第一次以妈妈身份夺大满贯

This is What's Trending Today...

这里是今日热点节目。

Only three mothers have ever won a Grand Slam tennis title in the 50 years of what is known as the "Open era" of competition. They are Kim Clijsters of Belgium and Australians Evonne Goolagong and Margaret Court.

在近50年的网球公开赛中,仅有三位妈妈球员获得了四个大满贯的头衔。她们分别是比利时的吉姆·克里斯特尔斯、澳大利亚的伊芳·谷莉恭高莉和同样来自澳大利亚的玛格丽特·考特。

Serena Williams is looking like she could become the fourth.

小威就目前来看,极有可能成为第四位获得大满贯的妈妈球员。

The 36-year-old American needed just 62 minutes Monday to reach the quarterfinal round of the Wimbledon tennis tournament.

这位36岁的美国球员在周一的温布尔登网球锦标赛只用了62分钟就闯进了四分之一决赛。

She defeated Evgeniya Rodina of Russia, who also is a mother.

她战胜的对手是俄罗斯选手罗迪娜,罗迪娜也同样是位妈妈球员。

After her win against Rodina, Williams told reporters, "I knew we were both moms, and I'm not sure how often that happens, if ever. So it's really cool. You can be a mom, you can still play tennis and you can still be great."

在击败罗迪娜之后,威廉姆斯告诉记者:“我知道我们都是妈妈,我不确定(同样是妈妈球员对战妈妈球员的)概率有多大。所以这真的非常酷。你可以做妈妈,也仍然可以打网球,你仍然可以很棒。”

Williams has won seven Wimbledon singles titles and 23 Grand Slam singles titles overall. But a win here would be her first title since becoming a mother. She gave birth to her daughter, Alexis Olympia, in September.

威廉姆斯总共赢得7次温网单打冠军以及23次大满贯。但如果此次夺冠,将是她当妈妈之后的第一个冠军头衔。她去年9月生下女儿亚历克西斯. 奥林匹亚。

Williams returned to Grand Slam competition earlier this year at the French Open, but she withdrew because of an injury. Coming into Wimbledon, she was not ranked among the top 150 female players because she missed more than a full season of competition, first while pregnant and then after giving birth.

威廉姆斯今年早些时候在法国公开赛回归大满贯比赛,但由于伤病,她后来退赛。由于怀孕和分娩,她错过了超过一个赛季的比赛,在参加温网公开赛时未跻身进入女性球员前150名。

However, the All England Club at Wimbledon seeded her 25th, choosing to look at her past successes instead of her recent lack of competitions. Williams said she hopes other women who return to professional tennis after having a child receive the same treatment.

不过,温网全英兰俱乐部将她列为第25号种子,选择依据她过去的成功而不是她近期的缺赛。威廉姆斯说,她希望其他产子后重回职业网球球赛的女性也能得到同样的优待。

It will be really nice for these women to take a year off, and have the most amazing thing in the world, then come back to their job and not have to start from the bottom... Williams said of the decision.

“对于这些(怀孕生子的)女性来说,休假一年体验世界上最棒的事,然后重新回到工作却不用从头开始,这真的非常棒。”威廉姆斯就(温网的)这一决定发表了看法。

Motherhood is an important part of who Williams is. She speaks openly about her health problems during childbirth, the joys of bringing her daughter with her to competitions and the difficulty of dividing her time between family and sport.

母亲的身份是威廉姆斯非常看重的身份。她公开谈论了分娩期间她的健康问题、带女儿一起参加比赛的乐趣以及平衡在家庭和体育上分配时间的困难。

Over the weekend, she wrote on Twitter that she missed seeing her 10-month-old daughter walk for the first time.

周末,她在推特上写到,她错过了见证孩子第一次行走。

She took her first steps, Williams wrote. "I was training and missed it. I cried."

威廉姆斯写到:“她第一次走路,而我在训练,没有看到。我哭了。”

The tweet - and the discussion it started - went viral. People around the world answered her with supportive messages.

这条推文以及由它引起的讨论迅速传播开来。世界各地的人回复信息表示支持。

Twitter user David Jones wrote, "When your daughter is a little older she'll know her mother is 1) the greatest tennis player of all time and 2) the woman who helped others return to the game after childbirth with a protected ranking and a career they don't have to abandon. I hope you win it for her next Saturday."

推特用户大卫·琼斯写到:“当你的女儿稍大些的时候,她就会知道她的母亲是:1)有史以来最伟大的网球运动员 2)帮助她人在分娩后回归比赛时享受受保护的排名以及不用放弃职业生涯的女子。祝你下周六旗开得胜。”

Williams must win two more matches to make it to the Wimbledon final on Saturday. She next faces Camila Giorgi of Italy. The two play Tuesday at 13:15 UTC.

威廉姆斯要想突围进入本周六的温网决赛,她还必须赢得两场比赛。她接下来将对战意大利选手卡米拉·吉奥吉。二人的比赛将在世界标准时间本周二下午13:15分举行。
