On November 16th, 2017, Serena Williams married Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, while two months earlier, on September 1, the American tennis star became the mother of a baby girl, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., after numerous complications during childbirth.
Ever since her birth, Olympia has been the center of attention and affection around the world, especially when her parents shared photos and videos of them along with her daughter on social media, especially on Instagram and Twitter.
Alexis Ohanian shared an Instagram story where he wore a bracelet that Olympia made for him, the bracelet also read the name Olympia.
Alexis said that her daughter told him, “I did this for you dad so you will always remember me.” Ohanian replied to his daughter in a very funny way, saying, “Who are you again?” In short, the Williams-Ohanian family is truly a master in social media!
Serena Williams has won 73 WTA singles titles: 23 of these are Grand Slam events (absolute record in the Open Era, men included), making her the second player ever to have won more Majors in this specialty behind only Margaret Smith Court, with 24 .
She completed the virtual Grand Slam, which consists in winning four consecutive Slams not in the same calendar year, twice (in the two years 2002-2003 and 2014-2015). She has also won five year-end Master Cups and 19 Premier category tournaments (6 Premier Mandatory, 6 Premier 5 and 7 Premier), as well as 21 Tier I and Tier II titles and a gold medal from the London Olympics in 2012 against Maria Sharapova.
Not only in singles Serena Williams can boast numerous victories, but also in women’s doubles and mixed doubles, where there are 16 other Grand Slam tournaments: 14 won with her older sister Venus and two in mixed doubles, both obtained with Maks Mirny in 1998.
To these successes must be added three other gold medals at the Olympics, all won together with Venus, a Federation Cup and two Hopman Cups. In 2021, Serena missed the US Open due to a hamstring injury which she got at Wimbledon.
