Serena Williams
 made her big career comeback on Sunday and won her first title since becoming a mother, more than two years ago. The tennis star announced that she would donate her winnings from her Sunday ASB Classic match in Auckland, New Zealand to Australian wildfire relief efforts.

“I’ve been playing Australia for over 20 years and it’s been really hard for me to watch all the news and everything that’s been happening in Australia with all the fires and over a billion animals and people who have lost their homes,” Williams said. “So I decided that I would donate all my prize money for a great cause.”

Since September, the catastrophic wildfires have claimed the lives of at least 25 people and almost half a billion mammals, reptiles and birds.


The 38-year-old tennis star defeated Jessica Pegula 6-3 6-4 at the Auckland Classic. Her daughter Alexis Olympia, 2, and her husband Alexis Ohanian joined her on the court as she lifted her trophy in victory.
