Serena Williams was cheered on by her daughter during her winning U.S. Open match on Saturday, and it’s the most adorable thing…
Serena Williams is a queen.
And she is now considered as one of the greatest female tennis players of all time.
She has been ranked as the No. 1 in singles on 8 separate occasions during her career and in total, she has been No. 1 for 319 weeks, which ranks third in the Open Era among female players behind Graf and Martina Navratilova.
And she’s one of the hardest players to beat.
She is also a powerful woman… full stop.
And she advocates strongly for the equality of women – in particular, female athletes.
During her women’s finals match against Naomi Osaka (who went on to win the title), chair umpire Carlos Ramos gave Serena a violation for a supposed “code violation for coaching.”
And her strong words truly left a mark on the tennis court.
She was simply standing up for herself and pointed out that male tennis players get away with a lot more than what she was accused of and disciplined for.
Serena, as well as her sister Venus, have been scrutinized in the past for the way in which they wear their hair, as well as being cruelly trolled and discriminated against because of their race.
Even though thousands have flooded to the Williams sister’s defense, there’s no doubt that racism is still a huge problem.
There’s no doubting who her biggest fan is… and that is, of course, her daughter.
And just before their marriage, their daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. was born.
Which left her bedridden for 6 months, ultimately postponing her return to training.
Alexis is clearly Serena’s “mini-me”, and the tennis star regularly posts adorable snaps of them both on Instagram.
And on Saturday, when she (yet again) won her Women’s Singles third round match against Sloane Stephens, her biggest cheerleader was there on the court by her side.
Serena’s husband and little girl were seen cheering her on… and it is honestly the most adorable thing!
And they also noted how her daughter will never forget memories such as these.
And clearly, little Alexis is completely besotted by her powerful mom.
And we can imagine that Serena will do an exceptional job in raising a strong and independent woman.
And of course, a huge congratulations to Serena on her big win!
