Serena’s husband Alexis shares daughter Olympia’s soccer drill photo

Interestingly, Alexis Ohanian with Serena Williams and Olympia owns the Angel City Football Club of the National Women’s Soccer League. Thus, it makes more sense for the three-old to start preparing for the tryouts.

Alexis, the co-founder of Reddit, shared a picture of them during their soccer practice on the turf on Instagram. The adorable father-daughter duo meant pure business while training.

The father captioned, “SoccerDad already running drills for Princess Belle because @nwsl 2035 draft is right around the corner @weareangelcity.”

Previously, Serena’s elder sister and seven-time Grand Slam champion Venus Williams also praised Olympia’s athletic body. Moreover, Olympia has been winning hearts by imitating her mother on the court and in front of the camera.

Most significantly, while Olympia and Alexis are busy with their soccer drills, Serena has begun her French Open 2021 preparations. Currently, the family is in Nice, France, where the 23-time Grand Slam champion is training with coach Patrick Mouratoglou.

Since the family is together, they make the most of their time at any given opportunity. Recently, Serena with Alexis and Olympia visited the Walt Disney World. It seems as if the three-year-old had been carrying the same vibe on the turf with her father.
