Williams is now just 3 good matches away from making history and equalizing Margaret Court’s record of 24 Grand Slam titles.

With things starting to look Serena’s way, it seems like her daughter has started her journey of breaking her mother’s to-be-set record already.

Serena Williams recently posted a reel on Instagram featuring Olympia. In the reel, one can see the 3-year-old holding the tennis racket and trying to do some drills with the balls.

“Tennis diaries,” wrote Williams in the caption.

Interestingly, Serena’s coach Patrick Mouratoglou himself was seen coaching Olympia. He was giving her the balls to hit and Olympia was trying to hit it hard by holding the racket using both her little hands.

Even though she was not able to hit the balls, it was certainly a cute moment as it looked like Olympia was swinging the racquet with some real purpose. Serena was ecstatic at the prospect of setting her daughter off on her path already.
