If Serena Williams is struggling with self-isolation, where does that leave the rest of us?

The tennis superstar and female icon posted a series of videos on TikTok that she was having difficulty with social distancing, especially where her family is concerned, according to CNN. She is especially anxious about the health of her 2-year-old daughter, Alexis Olympia.

The 23-time Grand Slam champion announced earlier this month that she was spending “six weeks in solitude” after a series of matches were canceled because of coronavirus.

She said she is two weeks into social distancing so far, and “every little thing makes me crazy.”

“Any time anyone sneezes around me or coughs I get crazy,” she posted. “She (Olympia) coughed, and I got angry and gave her a side-eye. I gave her that ‘angry Serena’ and then I got sad. I was like: ‘Is she OK? Is there something wrong with my daughter? Is there anything I can do?’

“I just don’t know what to do, so instead of being relaxed I’m really under a ton of stress,” she added.

Both the men’s and women’s tennis leagues announced there will be no tournaments played until June at the earliest.
