Serena Williams Got Her Daughter Olympia Ready for Her First Tennis Lesson and Instagrammed the Entire Thing

Published

Serena Williams’s daughter, Alexis Olympia, turned 3 on September 1, which means it’s time to get her out on the tennis court. On her Instagram story, the tennis champion shared her process of preparing her toddler to take on the sport, and it’s pretty darn adorable.

“Guys, I signed Olympia up for tennis lessons,” she said on the video. “Don’t even start with me, because I’m not giving her tennis lessons; I signed her up for some. But the lady has no idea that it’s my daughter, so we’ll see how long that lasts.”

Umm, imagine being that tennis instructor the moment you realize whose kid you’ve got in your class. Terrifying.

Anyway, Williams showed off footage of the tennis racquet she got for her daughter, which matches hers. And she got a black-and-white tennis outfit for Olympia and her doll. “I’m not a pushy mom, but I know how I like technique, so I want to make sure she’s good at teaching Olympia some techniques,” she said.

It seemed that this tennis mom also wanted to get Olympia started on technique before she even held a racquet in her little hands. She shared a video of her daughter taking in a tennis match. “See that open stance?,” she said to her as the 3-year-old focused on the screen.

“So she’s at her tennis lesson, but I’m gonna leave, so I’m not distracting,” Williams said as she updated followers on the day. “I know how to leave and be. I’m not, like, an overprotective mom…no matter what Alexis says,” she added, referring to her husband.

To be fair, Alexis also seems to be a very invested dad. I mean, look at this epic pancake he appeared to make Olympia this morning.

If she wants to be, this kid can be one mean powerhouse on the tennis court. Powered by pancakes and epic fashion.

‘Rafael Nadal is already thinking about…’, says former Top 10

Published

on

Through his official Twitter account, Rafael Nadal announced on Wednesday that he will not take part in the Masters 1000 in Miami next week due to the usual back injury (which has been tormenting him since the beginning of the season).

The Spanish phenomenon, who has only played in the Australian Open so far, has not played in the Florida tournament since 2017, when he surrendered in the final to eternal rival Roger Federer. The 34-year-old from Manacor also had to overtake Daniil Medvedev in second place in the ATP ranking.

The forfeit of the 20-time Grand Slam champion was followed by the most unexpected one of Dominic Thiem, whose start of 2021 was far below his standards. The winner of the US Open 2020 did not go beyond the round of 16 in Melbourne Park, before leaving the scene prematurely in both Doha and Dubai.

Nicolas Massu’s protege has confided that he is not at the top physically and mentally, so he is likely to return for the season on clay. During the press conference after the elimination in the first round of the Dubai Open, David Goffin analyzed how the minds of Nadal and Thiem are already focused on other appointments.

Goffin on Rafael Nadal and Dominic Thiem
“They (Rafael Nadal and Dominic Thiem) are already thinking about clay, which is their biggest goal of the year,” David Goffin said. “I understand their decision.”

During his interview, David Goffin pointed out how the flight duration from Dubai to Miami happens to be a whopping 19 hours. The Belgian clarified, however, that he himself wouldn’t pull out since Miami is a Masters 1000 event (and therefore a mandatory one).

“A 19-hour flight for just one tournament, it’s complicated,” Goffin said. “But I will play, it’s still a Masters 1000 and you have to go.” Goffin also spoke about the surface speed at the Dubai tournament, claiming that the court conditions were quick and difficult to find control in.

“I know now why I didn’t come to Dubai in the past because it’s very tough, it’s so fast, fast to control, it’s not easy for my game, especially when you play Kei,” Goffin said. However, despite the defeat and Goffin’s apparent struggles with the surface, there wasn’t much to separate the two players in terms of match stats.

Both recorded almost similar percentage of points won off the first serve and created the same number of breakpoint opportunities. However, it was in the key moments where Nishikori edged out the Belgian.

‘A great player like Roger Federer can win tournaments as…’, says former ace

Novak Djokovic is poised to overtake Roger Federer and become the number one tennis player in the world for 311 consecutive weeks.

 

 

It will be tomorrow, Monday 8 March. A historic record to which the 33-year-old Serbian wants to combine another great goal in his career: to snatch the Swiss record of 20 Grand Slam titles (he has 18).
“Now that I have become the historic number 1 I am relieved, now I will be able to concentrate mainly on the slams,” says Djokovic, increasingly the undisputed number one in world tennis. And he doesn’t want to stop.

Yves Allegro, another former Swiss player, showered rich praise on Roger Federer’s playing style. Allegro claimed Federer’s tennis is ‘unique’ and distinct from that of Rafael Nadal’s or Novak Djokovic’s.

Allegro pays tribute to Roger Federer

“Roger Federer’s way of playing tennis is unique – he’s attacking,” Yves Allegro said. “It’s such a contrast to Nadal and Djokovic. A great player like Roger can win tournaments as long as he plays and believes he can”.
The 2021 Qatar ExxonMobil Open marks the return of Roger Federer after a 13-month injury hiatus. Needless to say, the Middle-Eastern event is one of the most anticipated of the year, with fans desperate to see what the 39-year-old Federer brings to the
Barlocher is the former junior co-ordinator at the Old Boys Basel tennis coaching institute, which the young Federer attended. “Roger’s elegant tennis, his creativity, and technique are unique – I missed that a lot.

I still follow his matches And I still get really nervous, when plays,” Barlocher said. Rublev could start his title defense against Richard Gasquet. And in the quarterfinals, he could have the company of Stan Wawrinka before a potential clash against World No.3 Thiem in the semifinals.

Rublev is the defending champion and is in decent form. He usually performs really well in the ATP 500 and ATP 250 events. He is coming to the Qatar Open after playing the Rotterdam Open table.

The Qatar Open belongs to the ATP 250 category and has a prize pool of $787,930. A total of 28 players are taking part, including three of the top 10 – Dominic Thiem, Roger Federer and Andrey Rublev. The field also features Denis Shapovalov, David Goffin, Roberto Bautista Agut, Stan Wawrinka, Borna Coric, Reilly Opelka and Aslan Karatsev, amongst other names.

Dominic Thiem is the top seed and leads the top half of the draw, whereas second-seed Roger Federer is the headliner in the bottom half. Madeleine Barlocher also gave her views about Roger Federer’s return to the tour.

Roddick: “Who is the GOAT between Federer, Nadal and Djokovic?…

Published

Rafael, Novak and Roger

The Big 3 were arguably the best players of their era alongside Andy Murray. Roger Federer has not won a Slam since January 2018, but still holds the record of 20 majors conquered, while Rafael Nadal took only one length away thanks to the victories at the Roland Garros and the US Open last year.

 

 

Before the suspension for the Coronavirus emergency, Novak Djokovic won his 17th Slam by recovering Dominic Thiem in the Australian Open final. For his 17th Grand Slam win he received 2.5 Million Euro as prize money. The World number 1 won the title at Dubai Tennis Championships fifth time, defeating Stefanos Tsitsipas in the final.

In a recent interview, former World number 1 Andy Roddick said it is too premature to decide the ongoing ‘Greatest of all time’ debate. “There seems to be this need to discuss the greatest of all time on the men’s side and frankly at this point, I think it’s kind of dumb,” he said on Tennis Channel.

“It’s like handing out Oscars before you watch the ending of a movie. It just doesn’t make much sense and if you say one person, the other two people feel disrespected. It is just too early and before it all plays out someone will say: ‘who do you think will finish with the all-time lead?’ And I’m either guessing or obviously I’m like a medical professional and can predict injuries from here on out.

I just think we’re lucky to still have Novak, Roger and Rafa still in the game. Hopefully, Murray gets back into it. It is premature and I know everyone likes to go to this conversation non-stop but I just think it is too early. And there is too much wasted breath on it at this point.”
