Serena Williams’ Daughter, Olympia, Already Following In Her Mom’s Footsteps With Her Tennis Swing
Serena Williams started playing tennis at the age of five and was coached by her parents, Richard Williams Oracene Price according to the WTA Tour.
Fast forward to 2021. After 73 singles match wins including 23 Grand Slam wins, and 23 doubles match wins becoming one of the greatest tennis players to ever pick up a racket, Williams is returning the favor by coaching up her little one, 3 year-old Olympia.
“Turn, back, reach, head, follow through,” Williams said in a post as she overlooked her daughter going for a tennis swing on a court.
Although Williams reportedly signed her daughter up for lessons from another instructor as At The Buzzer previously reported, this appears to be some quality mother-daughter bonding and coaching time.
All you aspiring to be pro tennis players out there, this is good advice for you, as well, on your swing. “Turn, back, reach, head, follow through”. On repeat as you’re out there practicing.
Olympia, a future US Olympic tennis player? I’m sure she’ll do great at whatever career path she ends up choosing but in the meantime, people are having fun with thinking about Olympia following in her mom’s footsteps on the tennis court.
“Look out, world!,” Billie Jean King commented. “Keep going for it!”
“Totally mother’s daughter,” someone commented.
“Another Champion in the making! #blackgirlmagic✨,” another person commented.
“🔥🔥🔥 US Open 2035 will be lit! 😅…,” Kevin Curry said.
“🖤,” Diddy simply said.
