“Nuts,” said an innocent Olympia, reaching towards a bowl of nuts. It was a really funny moment and even Alexis couldn’t stop himself from laughing.

“Eat your nuts. They are great for fiber and protein… Hear that class of 2021, eat well,” said Alexis, completing Olympia’s sentence.

Will Serena Williams be able to win a Grand Slam in front of her daughter?

Williams made a comeback at the Italian Open 2021 after almost three months. However, she hasn’t been that great on clay lately and lost two of her last three games on the surface. She’ll now be heading to Paris for the French Open 2021, a major that she last won in 2015.

Even though she is not in the best of form, fans saw that Serena can compete even at the age of 39. She managed to reach the semis of the Australian Open 2021 and knocked out some of the top-seeded players there.

It’ll be intriguing to see how Serena plays at Roland Garros 2021. If she manages to conquer Paris this year, she’ll equal Margaret Court’s Grand Slam tally of 24 and will also win her first Grand Slam title in front of her daughter. Will Serena be able to beat the odds and lift her fourth French Open title in 2021?
