Serena Williams and ThisMama

Serena Williams stars in a beautifully shot new ad for Chase with regards to the US Open, featuring her newborn daughter Alexis Olympia. Via GlowUp:

As we await Serena Williams’ first appearance at the U.S. Open since giving birth to daughter Alexis Olympia, don’t be surprised if we totally fangirl out. Every day, we seem to get a new slice of greatness from the G.O.A.T., and her latest commercial for Chase is, simply put, next level.

In a voiceover, Williams recites the lyrics of LL Cool J’s “Mama Said Knock You Out,” a strikingly fitting narrative as one of the world’s most famous working moms prepares herself for a moment pretty much any working mom can relate to: She’s going back to work. But don’t call it a comeback. Aside from admirably making it to the finals at Wimbledon 2018—her first Grand Slam competition since giving birth—LL’s classic rhyme reminds us Williams has been here for years, and still serves with the force of a hurricane.

And notably, despite taking maternity leave, Williams still tops Forbes’ 2018 list of the highest paid female athletes—in large part, because of her entrepreneurship and corporate partnerships like the one she continues to enjoy with Chase.
