Daughter Olympia does Serena Williams’ make-up

Earlier, the three-year-old tried her hands at make-up with father Alexis Ohanian, volunteering as her model. However, this time, Olympia decided to go all-professional on her mother, Serena Williams.

In the Instagram video, the 23-time Grand Slam champion sits tight, as her daughter powders her face. Also, words such as “almost” and “oopsies” from Olympia bring a warm smile.

Additionally, Serena said she liked the make-up but then made a joke about it. Funnily enough, the American tennis queen stated that she might soon look for new make-up artists. She wrote, “Make up artist position open. DM resumes.”

Before this, Serena shared some of her pictures with Olympia during their Puerto Rico vacation. Notably, she did some silly poses in an attempt to embarrass her daughter. She then wrote, “Dear Olympia Ohanian. I will always love you, and I will always jump on an opportunity to embarrass you. Swipe right”

Indeed, the newly turned 40-year-old is making the most of time while recovering from a knee injury. 

Will Serena play in 2021?

Since the shocking incident in the Wimbledon opening round, Serena has not returned to the WTA Tour. She fell on her knee and still is recovering from it.

Although there is no official news, it is unlikely for the American tennis professional to play at the upcoming Indian Wells tournament. However, fans are sure to miss her heroics, yet again.

Most likely, Serena will not play in 2021 but will aim for a return at the Australian Open 2022. Her quest for a 24th Grand Slam title continues.
