“Alexis Doesn’t Dim My Light’ – Serena Williams Speaks Highly of Her Husband

Published

Serena-Williams-and-Alexis

Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian, who wed back in November 2017, have always been vocal about their love for and faith in one another.

As it turns out, the latter quality-undying support-is actually what drew the tennis champion to the Reddit co-founder in the first place.

In a new interview with Allure, Williams revealed how her now-husband pushed her to be her best self early on in their relationship, something that ultimately helped her realize that he was the one.

He may be her biggest fan now, but when Williams met Ohanian, she didn’t think a relationship was in the cards. “It just hadn’t happened, and I really didn’t think about it much,” she said.

“I was so committed to my job, and to being the best and working the hardest, and I think I still am.” While she had relationships in the past, she admitted she couldn’t make them work with her career-until she got to know Ohanian.

“Not to knock anyone else I was with before, because they were all mostly amazing, but I know now I can be selfish, have a great career, and a great partner, someone that believes in me.”

So, how did she know that he was the one?

Williams actually took a piece of advice from her friend Oprah Winfrey. “Oprah said, ‘Never let anyone dim your light.’ That really stuck with me. Alexis doesn’t dim my light,” she said, adding that she feels empowered by Ohanian.

“He doesn’t try to dim my light. He puts me in the light, even if I don’t want to be. He pushes me to further points I never thought about.

“He also helped her realize that she could have it all: A flourishing career, love, and motherhood (she and Ohanian are parents to their daughter, Alexis Olympia).”

According to Ohanian, being there for his wife is the key to helping her achieve this balance. “I think if you’d ask my wife, the most romantic things I’ve ever done for her have been just being there when she needed me,” he told Access last year. “That’s really all y’all have to do.”

Rafael Nadal is not only famous for his phenomenal gameplay but also for his noble work. The Spaniard runs a tennis academy that trains youngsters and makes future superstars.

 

 

The Academy also has a museum, called the ‘Rafa Nadal Museum’ where one can find all of Nadal’s trophies and most of his tennis valuables. Interestingly, Maria Sharapova too contributed a special gift from her side to the museum.

Five-time Grand Slam champion Maria Sharapova is also a part of the museum. She donated one of her autographed outfits that she wore during one of her matches to the museum.

“One year ago today Maria Sharapova retired from tennis! But we still remember her tennis every day at the Rafa Nadal museum,” tweeted the Rafa Nadal Academy’s official Twitter handle.

Rafael Nadal’s museum was surely trying to pay tribute to Maria Sharapova. It was exactly one year ago today when she took retirement from the sport.

Serena Williams also donated a special gift to the museum of Rafael Nadal
Apart from Rafa’s titles, the museum also has various valuables from legends like Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, and even Michael Jordon. In addition to these, tennis queen Serena Williams also gave a special gift to the museum recently.

The 23-time Grand Slam champion Williams donated her red Nike shoes to the museum. They also have Serena’s autograph which surely adds more charm to them.

The academy’s official Twitter handle also thanked Williams and expressed its gratitude. It was certainly a kind gesture from Williams.

The museum is quite a fascinating place for fans as they can see a lot of tennis treasures there. They hope that even more legends contribute to the museum in the near future.

Rafael Nadal coy over Tiger Woods help as injury ‘not under control’ at Australian Open

Published

Rafael Nadal has not revealed if he will seek advice from Tiger Woods on his back injury.

Rafael Nadal has refused to confirm if he has spoken to Tiger Woods regarding his back injury. Nadal is still suffering with the injury which forced him to withdraw from the ATP Cup matches against Alex de Minaur and Stefanos Tsitsipas last week. The Spaniard has made it through to the third round of the Australian Open though after beating Michael Mmoh in straight sets on Thursday.

 

 

After the win over Mmoh, Nadal was asked if he would be talking to Woods for advice on the issue.

But the 34-year-old was not giving anything away in his press conference.

 

“If I am talking to him, it’s something between him and me, and that’s it,” Nadal said.

“Sorry for that. I can’t say private conversations here.”

Nadal gave a worrying update on his condition, saying it is “not under control”.

The 20-time Grand Slam champion says he will continue to search for solutions to aid the issue.

“No, not under control, honestly,” he added. “No, I am going to keep doing the things that I can.

Nadal will face Brit Cameron Norrie in the third round on Saturday. Norrie overcame Roman Safiullin in four sets in the second round.

The South Africa-born star says he is looking forward to the challenge.

“Sweet. For someone like me, I don’t think about the draw but I saw yesterday he was next to me,” Norrie said when told he would face Nadal.

“I’ve never played him before so it will be a great match, a great experience. I can’t wait to show him what I’ve got.”

‘When there are Federer, Nadal, Djokovic with that determination…’, says expert

Published

on

Sometimes everything can change in a few hours. What seemed like a failed and unfortunate Australian campaign for world number one Novak Djokovic, has evolved over the shifts into a veritable manifestation of technical skills and mental strength by the Serbian, capable of annihilating Medvedev in the final and to interrupt the streak of consecutive victories of the Russian that had begun at the master thousand in Paris-Bercy with a caesura worthy of an executioner.

Yes, because the one in Melbourne was a tournament which, even before confirming Nole’s tennis superiority on those fields, rewarded and sublimated the resilience of the Serb, his mentality. In the period of his tennis resurrection, the Serb – who is about a year younger than Rafael Nadal and nearly six years younger than Roger Federer – benefited from their decline in performance to gnaw his own disadvantage in terms of Big Titles.

Freestar
To understand how much, just think that from July three years ago to today, the Spaniard has won seven tournaments (3 Majors and 3 Masters 1000) and the Davis Cup, while the Swiss has raised five cups to the sky (the most important of which is the Masters 1000 in Miami 2019, the other four titles are ATP 500) and grabbed three finals.

We will see how much these three legends of our sport will still want to win: however, their greatness has long since been immeasurable and no statistics will be able to enclose and order it. Pepe Imaz recently claimed that World No.

1 Novak Djokovic has done a lot of work on his inner self over the last few years, which has helped him tremendously on the professional front as well.

Imaz on the GOAT debate
“Novak Djokovic has spent years working on himself, his interior, understanding that when one is better inside, everything he does, he does it with more harmony, and (does it) better at the end of the day,” Pepe Imaz stated.

Pepe Imaz went on to explain that the work Novak Djokovic has done has helped him over the last year in particular, which has been a difficult one for the entire world. “In this difficult year that we have all lived, Novak Djokovic has become even more aware of the importance of what is the human being, the family and prioritizing things,” Imaz said.

“I think that has helped him. The calm that you get through the result, that does not depend on you, you can have it today and not tomorrow,” he went on. “The intrinsic calm is more solid and goes within you, that is the one you have to nurture.”

During the interview, Pepe Imaz also touched upon Novak Djokovic’s quest to break the record for most Grand Slams in men’s tennis. The Serb’s Australian Open title marked his 18th Major, taking him to within two of the all-time record which is jointly held by rivals Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

“Novak Djokovic’s desire and goal at a professional and tennis level is to achieve the maximum possible Grand Slams,” Imaz said. “He has it in his sights, and he has a lot of determination. But when there are 3 people with that determination, it is not easy,” he added.

“Rafa and Novak are people with impressive mental strength. It will be nice to see what happens year after year.”
