Alexis Ohanian, Jr., is ready for Wimbledon 2018. The little one posed with a tennis bag made just for kids to support her mom, Serena Williams, who has advanced to the semi-finals in the competition.
Serena is not making plans to get her daughter into the sport of playing tennis despite her success in the industry. “I would hope she doesn’t play tennis,” Serena said of her daughter during a recent interview. “Venus said she would coach her, she just didn’t want to travel.”
She took her first steps… I was training and missed it. I cried.

Williams is definitely keeping the options open regarding little Alexis Olympia’s future. “I think it will be interesting to see what she gravitates to,” Serena told media. “I really don’t know,” she continued. “Ice skating could be fun. She’ll probably be really tall, so… Yeah, I don’t know.”
Serena delved into her life as a competitor on the courts and mom during a press conference at Wimbledon on Monday. “It’s different now, obviously because I have a baby and being a mom is totally different,” the Grand Slam champion said. “I still have to think, ‘Wow, I’m a mom.’ So every day is different for me.

Williams further explained, “I’ve always embraced being a role model. For me, I just really fell into that perfectly. Now that I’m a mom, I just want to be even more of that role model for my daughter and for people out there that just want to be inspired and hear some good news. Right now, it’s so much bad news in the world. It’s like, we just need a good story.”
