Serena Williams and Olympia with lightsabers as Jedi!

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.

Serena Williams and her daughter, Olympia Ohanian, born from her marriage to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, are training with lightsabers to become Jedis knights!

In a post posted on Instagram, Serena and Olympia, big Star Wars fans, faced off in a Jedi duel, with two lightsabers each, with Serena writing: "Single camera one shot battle Royal with Olympia Ohanian!" "Someone put some lightsaber visual and sound effects on this, please," commented her husband Alexis Ohanian.

As we can see, Olympia is familiar with lightsabers, as if they were tennis rackets: in fact, as we know Serena Williams is teaching her daughter to play tennis, also through lessons. Pic by
