In an interview to Allure Magazine Serena Williams revealed the interesting advice Oprah gave her, connecting it to her marriage with the Reddit Co-Founder Alexis Ohanian. The former world No. 1 said: "Oprah said, 'Never let anyone dim your light.
That really stuck with me. Alexis doesn’t dim my light. He doesn’t try to dim my light. He puts me in the light, even if I don’t want to be. He pushes me to further points I never thought about. It always was something that I could see in some relationships—my light would be dimmer.
Now I feel like I can shine really bright and still do everything that I want to do." On how she was educated, Williams added: "I think my mom instilled in us to be confident women, to really believe in ourselves, be proud of our heritage, our hair, and our bodies.
That was something that was really important for her to teach us. I’m definitely teaching it to my daughter. I want to teach her that she’s beautiful from the inside...Being kind and humble is the ultimate beauty."
On his next opponent Egor Gerasimov, Andrey Rublev said: "I played him a long time ago. He always won. He is very strong and I always asked myself why he doesn't play the big tournaments and why he did not crack the top 100 rankings."
