Serena Williams: The best cheering team Serena Williams has! On January 29, the 23-time Grand Slam champion, 39, took the court in Adelaide for A Day At The Drive, an event showcasing the world’s best tennis players leading up to the Australian Open in 2021.
As Serena served up ace after ace, Olympia, her three-year-old daughter, was on the sidelines right there! The cute pictures can be seen there.
The sweet boy Serena shares with her husband, Alexis Ohanian, was wearing a cute, flowing blue dress with spaghetti straps and a floral pattern while watching her inspiring mom.
Olympia’s day session outfit, ever the tiny fashionista, also featured two wide blue bows in her hair and a pair of white sneakers. Olympia was totally captivated by the playing of her mom, and while she was in the arms of her dad, the teenager pointed to the court where her mom talked after the 2020 US Open Champion Naomi Osaka won.
About Serena Williams Australia trip:
For the last few weeks, Serena and her family have been in Australia, warming up for the first Grand Slam of the year, the Australian Open.
For Serena and a host of other top players before the main event, A Day At The Drive acts as the ultimate warmup exhibition. Fortunately, Serena, with the encouragement of her three-year-old, has already been hard at work practicing her forehand, backhand, slice, serve, and more.
Serena shared one of her last state-side activities on Instagram before going off to The Land Down Under. Olympia, her training partner, was right by her side! During her serving practice, Olympia threw her mom a few hoops, moved around the court for target drills, and even demonstrated her own tennis talents on the court.
It was so adorable to see, and fans just can’t wait to see if Serena is going to make history at the Australian Open this year. The last time Serena won a Grand Slam title was when she was pregnant with Olympia at the Australian Open in 2017.
Serena has been in four Grand Slam finals ever since becoming a parent, only stopping short of the 24th record-tying title. Serena’s family has been cheering her on every time she’s been on the court, and this tournament would be no different! We can’t wait to see Serena take over the court on February 8 for the Australian Open.
