Interestingly, it is not just Olympia who has an Instagram official account but even his Qai Qai doll has its own Instagram account. It is the doll with which Serena Williams’ daughter enjoys playing every time and thus, Serena or Alexis posts all of Olympia’s fun activities on this Instagram account.

Recently, the Qai Qai doll’s account posted a picture of Olympia in which she is trying to swing a tennis racquet. Even though she is holding no racquet, she is in the air as if she is trying to hit a forehand.

“A star in anyone’s eyes,” wrote one of her Olympia’s parents in the Instagram caption.

Intriguingly, one can also see a lot of tennis balls in the background along with the Qai Qai doll. Olympia surely was about to practice or did some training before this picture was taken. It reveals that one day, fans can also witness her on the court- playing some superb forehands just like her mother.

Serena Williams in the 2021 season so far

Serena got off to a great start in the 2021 season as she managed to reach the semi-finals of the Australian Open 2021. Even though World No.2 Naomi Osaka thrashed her in straight sets there, she definitely proved that she has got a lot of tennis left inside of her.

However, after that, the tennis queen hasn’t been able to perform brilliantly on the court. Her clay-court season was just decent as she lost in the pre-quarters of the French Open 2021.

Fans had a lot of expectations from her at the Wimbledon Championships 2021 but she injured herself in the very first round. As a result, the 39-year-old withdrew from the tournament without completing even a single set there.

Overall, it has been a topsy-turvy season for Serena Wiliams so far. However, fans still have huge expectations from her and want her to deliver in the future. Will she be able to end her Grand Slam title drought and win her 24th major at the US Open 2021?
