She further went on admitting that she ‘never thought’ she’d let her ‘daughter play tennis.’ She even stated, that her daughter Olympia is a perfectionist, There’s ‘A LittleDab Of Pressure’.
Serena Williams visited Stephen Colbert. The 23-time Grand Slam champion, 39, had joined The Late Show host for a conversation as she was quarantining in Australia for the first Grand Slam of the year. However, Serena isn’t alone. She along with her husband, Alexis Ohanian, and the couple’s three-year-old daughter, Olympia, was right by her side! Serena went to the tennis great and stated, “We are big fans of Olympia.”
When Stephen asked, “She looks like a fierce competitor! What is she like on the court?” Serena replied back, “She’s a perfectionist on the court,” she further said that she is “not quite sure where [Olympia] got that from.” We all know it from time and then that Serena had got a really soft corner about tennis and that was pretty much evident from her past life as well. However, she further admitted, “never thought I would let my daughter play tennis. But…during this pandemic, it was the only thing that we could do safely.”
Serena had been sharing all the documented images and videos of her daughter’s learning lesson and you can easily see it just by visiting the Instagram handle of the star. However, recently she said, “And, so, I’m like, ‘Well, tennis it is!’” Then again, that is a lot for the toddler to live up to! “It’s all consuming, it’s stressful, it’s a lot of work. It’s a huge commitment.” Serena further confessed, “And it might be a little dab of pressure on her. So, I wouldn’t actually put her in it, but if that is something that she wanted to do, I would absolutely be like, ‘Oh my gosh, you should totally do that!’”
