2020 is right on the edge of the cliff, and it is time to take a final look at the year that was. Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian shared an adorable moment from 2020 where his wife Serena Williams waved back to their daughter from the tennis court.
From one set down, the 23-time Grand Slam winner recovered and won the other two sets. She recorded a whopping 12 aces in their match.
But more than her victory, Serena’s moment with her daughter made everyone’s day. The 3-year-old who was in the stands pointed at Serena and mumbled ‘mother’ to which Serena happily waved back.
Screenwriter Ariel Dumas shared the mother-daughter moment and called it the good part of 2020. The 37-year-old Alexis responded with, “This was definitely a good part of 2020.”
Earlier, the couple had mentioned how the lockdown helped them bond together. Serena and Olympia’s many activities gave a glimpse of what a happy quarantine could look like.
Next season will probably be the last chance for the 4-time Olympic Gold medallist to win a major title. She is only one Grand Slam behind Margaret Court’s all-time most major titles record.
Her last major win came at the Australian Open in 2017. Since then, she has finished as the runner-up in four Grand Slams finals and also as a semifinalist at the 2020 US Open.
Serena also claimed that she is playing only to break the record. However, considering the upcoming tennis players and her age, it won’t be a cakewalk for the American.
But if there is anyone in tennis who can achieve the impossible, it is Serena Williams. She has returned to the sport from many difficult odds, and her passion for tennis is still alive.
Williams will resume her career at the Australian Open from February 8. Given the restrictions in Melbourne Park, it is uncertain if her husband and daughter will be there to cheer for her.
Above all, she is fit and motivated to take on the next season. And if she gets her Slam, then we might see her say goodbye to the sport.
