Serena Williams and her daughter Olympia, on the court, with the same outfit, with the same pose. The sweet photos have been shared on Instagram by the American and on Twitter also by the official account of the Australian Open.
Mother and daughter like two tennis superheroine on the court: pics which can gave hope. The 38 years-old Serena American legend is without a doubt one of the strongest tennis players in the history of the Game, perhaps the best ever: 73 women's singles WTA titles, including 23 successes in Grand Slam tournaments and five editions of the WTA Finals.
She was number one of the WTA ranking for 319 weeks and she won the Olympic Gold medal at the 2012 London Games. Also very strong in women's doubles, in this specialty Serena won 14 Slam titles with her sister Venus, as well as three Olympic gold medals.
Also the American won 2 Slam with Max Mirnyi, in the mixed doubles. With over 90 million dollars earned over the course of her career, Serena Williams is also at the top of this special ranking. Today she dropped to number 9 of the world ranking, and her latest Slam hit dates back to the Australian Open 2017.
Serena Williams and her daughter Olympia
Married in November 2017 to Alexis Ohanian, one of the founders of the Reddit website, Serena gave birth to a beautiful baby girl after a particularly complex birth: Olympia. So here are the photos depicting mom and daughter on the tennis court, as if they wanted to play a women's double match together.
The images, published on Instagram by Serena herself, were also shared by the Australian Open Twitter account, which recalled the victory of the American in Melbourne three years ago. In that edition of the tournament, which saw Roger Federer's spectacular return in the men's singles, Serena started as seed no.2.
After the rather easy victories over Belinda Bencic, Lucie Safarova, Nicole Gibbs, Barbora Strycova, Johanna Konta and Mirjana Lucic, Williams thus reached her nth final, where her sister Venus was waiting for her. Serena won that match 6-4 6-4, without having granted a single set for the whole tournament.
It was the seventh success of the multi-champion Slam in Melbourne: she is second only to Margaret Smith Court, who triumphed 11 times in Melbourne Park. Serena's last victory in the WTA Tour came last January, when she overtook compatriot Jessica Pegula 6-3 6-4 in the Auckland final.
