Serena Williams had many supporters in the audience at the US Open this week, including her husband Alexis Ohanian and five year old daughter Olympia. The latter stole the show on Monday as she cheered on her 40-year-old mother and proud father from the crowd wore a t-shirt with a photo of her at that moment, standing alone in the audience during Serena’s final three-set match Ajla Tomlijanovic. The graphic top was black and he paired it with a black denim jacket and added a black baseball cap to the look.
Although Serena was ultimately defeated that day, which was marked the end of her professional tennis career, Alexis’ way of honoring her and her adorable daughter was truly endearing. His facial expressions during the competition also proved that he was fully invested in the event and showed love to his wife in every way he could. The emotional day was definitely one for the books.
Before Alexis’ jersey attracted a lot of attention on the final day of Serena’s performance at the US Open, Olympia got the attention at the start of the event on Monday. She matched her mum in a glittery outfit and had her hair in pigtails as she enthusiastically cheered her on while sitting in a seat next to her dad. They ended up joining Serena for a hug and photos, looking as happy as they could be.
Serena’s sweet family moments at the US Open didn’t just include Alexis and Olympia. This included her sister and fellow tennis player, Venus Williams. The now-retired tennis champion thanked her close sister in an emotional speech after she lost her last tennis match on September 2. “I wouldn’t be Serena if Venus didn’t exist. She’s the only reason Serena Williams ever existed,” she tearfully told the cheering crowd.
She also credited her father Richard Williams and mother Oracene price. “I tried, but Ajla was better. Thanks daddy I know you’re watching…thanks mom…It all started with my parents and they deserve everything so I’m really grateful to them,” she said. “Those are tears of joy. Thanks Venus It was a fun ride.”
