The couple’s adorable three-year-old daughter, Olympia, was also present on the trip. Indulging in some adventure, Williams and her husband took turns to launch from the stone board to dive into the ocean, reveling in the cool crystal clear water.

In fact, Olympia, looking incredibly cute in a pink swimsuit, accompanied her parents near the metal staircase to get into the water. Relaxing while gazing at the gorgeous ocean view, the family beamed smiles, and laughed together, making most of the sunshine.

Over the years, fans have often sighted Alexis in the stands, supporting and cheering for Williams along with their little daughter.

The American, a seven-time Wimbledon champion, has decided to skip all the warm-up events tuning to the grass-court Grand Slam. Since clinching her last Wimbledon trophy in 2016, Williams hasn’t gone beyond the fourth round at the All England Club.
