Williams shared a corresponding photo for each event, showing her on the tennis court at the Australian Open, cradling the trophy after her win, debuting her baby bump, documenting her pregnancy, her baby and bridal shower, and her Vanity Fair cover.

In addition to the top moments she listed, Williams also married Ohanian in a New Orleans wedding in November, after giving birth to their daughter in September.
