The 39-year-old American tagged the images with a short message saying, “This is us”.

The images drew likes from Reddit co-founder and Serena’s husband Alexis Ohanian, her elder sister Venus Williams and former Grand Slam champion Caroline Wozniacki. 

Ohanian left a cheeky remark, wondering if Serena was taking coaching lessons from her daughter. “Love the third photo. Jr is already coaching,” he said.

Venus, a seven-time Grand Slam champion, showered love on the mother and daughter saying, “This is me too (love emojis)”Wozniacki, a former women’s World No. 1, reacted to the adorable images with heart emojis.

Serena suffered her latest Grand Slam heartbreak at this year’s French Open

On the career front, Serena hasn’t had too much to smile about lately. Returning to action in Rome after an extended break that she took post her heartbreaking semifinal loss to Naomi Osaka at the Australian Open, Serena fell in the opening round to unheralded Argentine Nadia Podoroska.

Needless to say, it wasn’t the outcome she had imagined in her 1,000th career match.
