11 Times Serena Williams’ Husband Alexis Ohanian Was Her Biggest Fan

It’s often said that it takes an army to get things done in this world. And while we’ve so often talked about the women behind the men, it’s high time that women were the ones in the spotlight, as leaders, businesswomen and all-round ‘getting it done’ legends.

So while brilliant women leaders like Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Amal Clooney, Nancy Pelosi make waves – putting their extreme smarts to important use – we can spare a small moment to applaud the spouses who have taken on the supporting roles, so that their leading ladies can shine brightly.

The world has fallen head-over-heels for support act to tennis Queen Serena Williams, husband and biggest supporter: Alexis Ohanian.

Since their wedding in November 2017, the Reddit co-founder and tech entrepreneur has constantly reminded the world of the importance of supporting women achieve greatness, paternity leave and making romantic gestures unashamedly.

11 Times Serena Williams’ Husband Alexis Ohanian Was Her Biggest Fan

1) Alexis wooed Serena over truffles in Rome
Serena Williams has opened up about the first time she met her now husband Alexis Ohanian.

On Tuesday May 12, the tennis champion shared the story about how she met the technology entrepreneur several years ago.

Sharing a video of herself and her husband in the car during lockdown, Williams captioned the clip: ‘This trip started in Roma 5 or 6 years ago lol I’m the worst with time lines.

‘He sat at my table. I asked him to leave. He refused. I found that hot,’ she continued.

‘I asked him if he liked truffles. He said yes. Eventually I said yes. And here we are. 5 or 6 years later.’

2) Alexis calls Serena a ‘business mama’
The businessman was seen filming Serena’s interview after winning her first round match against Anastasia Potapova of Russia on day one of the 2020 Australian Open at Melbourne Park on January 20 in Melbourne, Australia.

3) Alexis and Olympia cheer on Serena at 2020 Women’s ASB Classic
On January 12, Alexis carried his daughter Alexis Olympia, onto the tennis court to congratulate his wife after she won her final match against Jessica Pegula of USA at ASB Tennis Centre in Auckland.

‘What a start to the decade Serena Williams, we’re all so proud of you,’ he began the photo’s caption. ‘And just when I think I can’t possibly be more proud, you donate all your prize money to fight the #australianbushfires.’

4) Alexis backs Serena’s baking skills…whatever the outcome
In the run up to Thanksgiving in 2019, Williams decided to try her hand at baking cookies.

The tennis player documented the process on Instagram Stories, telling her followers that she let the cookies raise ‘for about twenty hours…and they raised’.

A day later, the athlete showed herself checking in on the cookies only to find that they’ve turned rock hard. (Of course, it really doesn’t matter if the former number one tennis player can’t make cookies.)

During the baking mishap, her biggest fan Ohanian was there in the background holding their daughter Olympia and being supportive as ever.

5) Alexis supports her friendship with Meghan Markle
Having a loved one get on well with your best friends is an important component in any relationship.

The couple posted several photographs and videos of themselves attending the star-studded nuptials, from them getting dressed in the morning for the ceremony at St George’s Chapel, Windsor to changing for the reception at Frogmore House.

6) Alexis and daughter Olympia cheer on Serena at Hopman Cup
Standing on the sidelines during Serena’s women’s singles match against Britain’s Katie Boulter at the Hopman Cup in January 2019, the Reddit co-founder was seen holding the couple’s daughter, Olympia, as they cheered on the sportswoman.

For the occasion, the proud father wore a black T-shirt and trainers which coordinated perfectly with his daughter’s black Nike shoes and leopard print and black co-ord.

7) Alexis talks the importance of being present at tennis matches
Describing his wife as the GMOAT (‘greatest mother of all time’), the technology expert has spoken about supporting his wife through thick and thin during her career.

‘You have to show up,’ he wrote in an article for Glamour earlier this year. ‘You have to be supportive. These are the things that matter.’

In the op-ed, the father-of-one revealed that the couple sit down at the beginning of every year to go through their diaries so that they spend no longer than a week without seeing each other.

Ohanian said that while his career has been ‘successful’ so far, he recognises the power in helping his wife aim to win for more trophies.

‘I’m far from perfect, but I try to get behind her and let her know I’m there for her and our daughter, no matter what,’ he wrote. ‘While I don’t have anything extravagant planned at the moment (or if I did, I wouldn’t tell you!), I will always try to show my wife how much I appreciate and support her.’

8) Alexis takes Serena to Italy because she is craving pasta
While most couples will order a takeaway when itching for a veggie pizza, a green Thai curry or a chicken biryani, the Ohanians go one step further.

In July 2018, Alexis posted a photograph of him and his wife drinking wine in Venice. ‘She wanted Italian for dinner, so…’ the photo’s caption reads.

Yes, that’s right. Alexis jetted the 23-time Grand Slam champion to Italy because…she was hungry. ‘She had a craving, so I delivered her to Venice,’ Ohanian wrote in Glamour.

Our jealousy levels have never been higher.

9) Alexis nicknames Serena’s match hairstyle
During her quarterfinal match against Alison Riske at Wimbledon 2019, Serena wore her hair down in natural curls for half of the match before pulling it into a tight bun after losing the second set and ultimately winning the on court battle.

Following the tense sporting competition between the two athletes, Ohanian took to Instagram to congratulate his wife and credit the ‘business bun’ for helping give her the extra boost she needed during the match.

‘#MamaStrength. What an amazing match between two women who went all out today. But the #BusinessBun means business,’ he wrote.

10) Alexis isn’t afraid to let go during a match
Look to the stands during any one of Serena’s matches and you’ll no doubt see Alexis cheering her on.

Photographed grimacing, smiling, yelling and pumping his fists in the air, the father-of-one is more than aware of his changing faces while watching his significant other play and isn’t afraid to make fun of himself once in a while.

‘Chill, no chill,’ he captioned a side-by-side photograph of himself on Instagram in July which sees him looking calm and collected at one point and then lifting his arms and yelling in the other.

‘Without Roger Federer’s patience…’, says famous trainer

Published

on

After more than a year of inactivity, Roger Federer will return to play a tournament on 8 March in Doha. The Swiss maestro last played an official match at the 2020 Australian Open, when he was defeated in three sets with Novak Djokovic (later winner of the tournament).

Many questions that arise spontaneously to millions of fans around the world, above all “Will he be able to get back competitive?” His former coach, Heinz Gunthardt, told him about the matter. “It will be one of the greatest challenges ever seen in the world of sport.

There is no doubt. A couple of things have to be fine. He has to move well, he has to build a little confidence with the pitch and with the game, as well as with his body. Playing at a high level right away? Possible, but the first thing to do will be to serve well.

Of course, though, he won’t be used to the game, but that’s not the biggest problem. The focus will be on how well he can move. Why not, he could even win Wimbledon maybe. Why don’t fans have to be optimistic about his return? There is much more to be curious than pessimistic about his condition.”

While speaking with Rene Stauffer, Pierre Paganini made a startling revelation, explaining how Federer’s body has suffered significant degradation during this period – which is in sharp contrast to its condition during his 2016 injury hiatus.

Paganini talks about Roger Federer

“Without Roger Federer’s patience, the guillotine would have fallen long ago,” Pierre Paganini stated. “He depends on it (passion), and so do we! When a player who’s almost 40 has to do exercises that a 70-year-old can do without any problems, and is happy that it gets better every day – if that’s not passion (then what is).”

Paganini further revealed that Roger Federer’s participation at the Dubai Open is not yet a guarantee, as was previously believed to be. “At the moment it is only clear that he is playing Doha, then we’ll see,” Paganini revealed.

Federer is the most successful player at the Doha Open, winning the tournament previously on three occasions in 2005, 2006, and 2011. The event is played on hard courts in an outdoor environment. The tournament will be played from the 8th of march and will end on the 13th of the month. The ATP Dubai 500 will begin on the 14th of March and will end on the 20th of March.

Novak Djokovic: ‘I once showed my son Stefan who Rafael Nadal is’

Published

Novak Djokovic attended an event held by his endorsement Asics, shoe producer, on Saturday in Shanghai, China, and the interviewers showed him a photo featuring him and his son Stefan staying on a bench together looking at something on the Wimbledon practice courts.

That was actually a very funny moment. ‘I was showing him (Rafael) Nadal, who was playing two courts away because he doesn’t know anybody from tennis but he knows Nadal because I explained him, This is the guy who hits the ball very very hard.

When he sees him, he says, Oh, you are the guy who hits the ball very very hard’, said Djokovic. Talking on his comeback, the 31-year-old added: ‘I worked very hard to be able to regain confidence on the court after that I had surgery in February.

It took me several months to be able to get my game together. I have made some compensations with my game especially with my serve, I made certain changes with the racket so it took a little bit of time to get used to the new racket and serve and not to have the elbow disturbing me.
