Serena Williams' husband, Alexis Ohanian, highlighted his wife's impact on people in a social media post on Friday. "I have seen over the last 7 years how much my wife is loved, what she means to so many, all over the world.
She is unlike anything I have ever seen before. Many people have told me 'how Reddit changed her life', but the scale and impact of 'how Serena changed my life' stories absolutely dwarfs it. And that's just what I hear when people come up to me to say hello.
The breadth and depth of the influence he has had on many people cannot be overstated. As far as I know, she has no idea. Serena Williams doesn't think about it, she doesn't even realize it," Alexis Ohanian wrote. In 2021, Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian celebrated four years of marriage.
"4 years! Many more date nights to come. It takes work, but building this family with you is the best job Serena Williams has ever done," said Ohanian. Serena and Alexis met by chance in May 2015 while staying at the same hotel in Rome during the Italian Open.
Their daughter Olympia was born in September 2017. They married two months later in a ceremony in New Orleans in the presence of Williams' sister Venus Williams, Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian, Caroline Wozniacki, Kelly Rowland and Ciara.
Ohanian said: "4 years ago you made me the happiest man in the world and our little family makes me more grateful every day. November 16 will always be a very special day for our family. Happy Anniversary Serena Williams."
Serena Williams is a 23-time Grand Slam champion
Stan Wawrinka always has a sense of humor, and during his press conferences, you have to be attentive because he occasionally launches messages that you have to know how to decipher.
That's what he did yesterday about Serena Williams. "I think she's been amazing for tennis, for the fans, for anyone who's a bit involved in the sport in general. I've always been a huge fan, with many great moments in our careers, and of course it will be sad to see her go after the US Open.
I remember that in 2015, we both won at RolandâGarros. She crashed into my night. It was quite fun." Now she is gearing up for the WTA 1000 event in Cincinnati that will eventually bring her to the last Grand Slam of this year as well as her career.
The six-time US Open champion will square off with the young blood Emma Raducanu in the first round of the tournament.
