With an early retirement, fans are eagerly waiting to see the American back on-court as soon as possible. After announcing her withdrawal from Tokyo Olympics, the former world number one will look forward to the US hard-court season in the quest for glory.

As fierce and determined she appears on-court, Serena Williams also ensures to balance tennis with family time. The global icon is back home, spending time with husband Alexis Ohanian and their three-year old daughter, Olympia.

Right from playing tennis to giving student advice, Olympia has already become famous on the internet. Whenever Serena posts a picture of them together, the tennis world always responds with affectionate messages to the mother-daughter duo.

Not only Serena, even Internet entrepreneur and husband Alexis Ohanian is always active on social media and gives regular updates on Olympia. Recently, Ohanian was seen making his daughter eat a Japanese plum.

While Serena was not being seen in the clip, we could hear her comments from the background. Ohanian was talking about the plum and peeling it off before Olympia jumps in and sat on her father’s lap.

All right Olympia, you’re gonna eat your ice-cream on my lap while I try this. Do you want to try it? It’s good. You haven’t even tried it. You know the rule”, Ohanian said.

The three-year old didn’t like the taste of the fruit as she found it stinky. When her father asked about the rating she would give to the fruit, Olympia replied, “Zero”. 

Even Serena Williams found the taste of the fruit to be sour and named it a ‘sour plum’. Coming to tennis, the 23-time grand slam champion is yet to make a decision regarding her comeback tournament post the retirement at Wimbledon.
