Serena Williams engages in playful conversation with Olympia

Recently, a short video surfaced that saw Serena engaging in conversation with an innocent Olympia. The American star asked her daughter to name her favorite doll.

Olympia didn’t regard Qai Qai as her top pick. In fact, she spoke about another doll she came across at a store recently.  It was a ‘lol’ doll.

Olympia wants to acquire a dollhouse for her collection. She opened up about her desire to go to the store to make those purchases.

The young child also declared she’d like to go in the car rather than a plane. Kids are pure, and there is a sense of simplicity in them at that age.

Serena is currently in Adelaide, in isolation, serving a quarantine period of 14 days, and will feature in the exhibition event, ‘A Day at the Drive’. She will subsequently leave for Melbourne to equal Margaret Court’s record of 24 Grand Slam titles.
