American tennis player, Serena Williams has done wonders in the game. Ever since she first became a professional, success has been a constant in her career. She began her journey as a teenager and is still on top of her game as she has entered parenthood. Williams was already pregnant (8 weeks) when she won her last slam at the Australian Open in 2017.

The 23-time grand slam champion is married to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian. In September 2017, she gave birth to her daughter, Alexia Olympia. Ever since then, the ability of Serena to multi-task between managing her business, taking care of her daughter, or competing at the highest level (tennis) is worth mentioning.

Serena Williams’ Daughter Olympia Makes Pancakes

Recently, on New Year’s Eve, Olympia was seen making pancakes with her father by her side. In the video, Olympia was innocently making a mess and her father sarcastically stated that it would be a lot of fun trying to clean up the place once she’s done with it.

Witnessing children indulging in such acts is a tad amusing and will bring a smile to one and all.

Coming back to Serena, she has been a role model for many fans. Not just fans, but many of the players on tour also look up to her. In 2019, Williams launched the first collection of her sustainable clothing line, ‘S by Serena’. Williams is the current Chief Sporting Officer for British luxury automobile manufacturer Aston Martin. She is also on the Board of Directors at SurveyMonkey.

These activities clearly indicate the workload Serena has outside the tennis courts. To pay attention to different aspects of life simultaneously can get stressful. 

Williams was last seen at the 2020 French Open. She pulled out before her second-round match due to an Achilles’ injury. It would be great to see her dominance in this coming season at the grand slams.
