Recently, Serena Williams’ husband Alexis Ohanian was seen playing with his daughter Olympia. Together, they were seen engaging in a game that involved using a lot of animal characters. However, the most important point was when they burst out laughing when Olympia’s face got covered by a Pony.

As that happened, Alexis was heard stating, “Let’s see what it is. It says manifesting. No, you can’t eat broccoli. Oh my God, Olympia, you’ve turned into a Pony.” Over the years, both father and daughter engage in a lot of playful acts with each other and this was yet another act of theirs.

Serena Williams had a poor clay season

Coming onto the tennis played this season, Williams began competing in Australia but ended her hopes of winning another Major after losing in the semifinal to Naomi Osaka. After that, she wasn’t seen on Tour for a while and made a return at the clay event in Rome.

Soon after came the French Open and she failed to impress, losing in the fourth round. Thereafter came the Wimbledon Championships and she had to withdraw midway through the opening round match as she sprained her ankle. We wish to see her compete at the highest level and hope she can make a return during the hardcourt US Open Series.
