Serena Williams has revealed that she has enrolled her daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian for tennis lessons.
The 23-time grand slam champion became a mother in September 2017, and now her daughter has turned three, Williams has greenlit her foray into playing tennis like her mum.
Instead of taking on training her daughter herself Williams said she has prepared a trainer to teach her, but she’s attempted to do so without alerting them to her famous mother.
“I’m not giving her tennis lessons, I signed her up for some, she said in an Instagram video. But the lady has no idea that it’s my daughter, so we’ll see how that goes. I’m not a pushy mum, but I know how I like technique. So, I’m going to make sure she’s good at teaching Olympia some techniques. I’m going to leave so I’m not distracting. I know how to leave and be. I’m not an overprotective mum, no matter what Alexis [her husband] says.”
