The world is locked down amid the coronavirus crisis, and athletes are seldom getting enough practice. Grounds are closed and most players aren’t going out for training. But Serena Williams doesn’t seem to like sitting idle at her home. She has hit the court, practicing for the upcoming season. And guess what, she is not alone. Serena has got an adorable partner who loves to play tennis with her.
The former world number one posted a series of photographs on Instagram. In these images, she is seen practicing with her daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian, Jr. The mother-daughter duo was wearing matching outfits with Nike shoes, purple bodysuits, and each of them held a Wilson racquet. Alexis was also seen mimicking her mother’s stance on the court.
Apart from the photographs, Williams also uploaded a video of her and Alexis high-fiving, which seems to be at the end of the practice session. Serena asked her followers to give a properly suited caption for those pictures.
Within moments, fans started showering love on the photos and came up with captions describing how adorable the couple looked. Out of all these comments, one person stole the show and it was none other than Serena’s sister, Venus Williams. She wrote, “I just love her and you too much! If this gets any cuter I will NOT LIVE!”.
Most of the comments from fans claimed that Alexis will eventually grow up to rule women’s tennis similar to her mother. She will turn three this year. Even at this age, she is practicing and that too, with one of the greatest women’s tennis players ever. Serena Williams has 23 Grand Slam singles titles in their collection, which is just one short of all-time highest Grand Slam winner Margaret Court.
Also, Williams owns the most number of Grand Slams among active players. In total, she has won 39 titles across singles, doubles, and mixed doubles. Her first singles victory came weeks before she turned 18 when she defeated Martina Hingis 6-3, 7-6 at the US Open. Since then, the 38-year old hasn’t stopped. Fans are imagining the immense success her kid could end up achieving, when she grows up, under Serena’s coaching.
