A Heartbreaking Injury and Prospects for a Successful Future
The former No.1 player in women’s tennis was in news recently after she suffered an injury in the Wimbledon Championships, 2021 that forced her to walk away from her shot to win her 24th Grand Slam Title against the Belarusian player Aliaksandra Sasnovich. The injury happened just 34 minutes in the match. The way she yelped when she hit the ground left many wondering if this was her last match of the year. But, her agent, Jill Smoller, told TMZ that her rehab has been going great and she’s on the process of a speedy recovery. She further added that the prospects of her being completely fit till the time the U.S. Opens begin in New York from August 30 are looking good.
A Fairytale Family
A few weeks after the match, she appeared to have been recovered to a certain degree and was seen on a vacation with her husband and Reddit co-owner Alexis Ohanian and their 3 year-old daughter Olympia. Alexis posted some clips where he was seen trying to teach Olympia some considerably difficult English words to pronounce like ‘Mitochondria’, ‘Platypus’, and ‘Serendipity’. Now, Olympia seems too smart for her age because the pronounced all the three words correctly. Isn’t she a true cutie with brains?
Serena and Alexis got married in November 2017 after almost 2 years of dating. She accidentally revealed her pregnancy just 5 months before their marriage through a Snapchat story she meant to share on her private account but inadvertently put on her public page. The couple welcomed their daughter in September. Serena has previously opened up about how magical and romantic her proposal was. Alexis popped the big question in 2016 at the same restaurant they first met in Rome. She shared the news through a poem posted on Reddit.
Skipping Out On Tokyo Olympics
In late June, Serena, who has taken home 4 Olympic Gold medals, confirmed that she will be skipping this year’s Tokyo Summer Olympics. Speaking about her decision, she told reporters that a lot of reasons drove her to make this decision and she just doesn’t feel like going in this year. She has previously won 3 gold medals in women’s doubles along with her sister, Venus Williams in 2000, 2008, and 2012. She took home another gold in women’s singles against Maria Sharapova in 2012.
