‘Women Are Tough’ – A Pregnant Serena Williams’ Bold Statement to Husband Alexis Ohanian About Playing at Scorching Melbourne Heat

Serena Williams is one of the strongest players that ever graced the sport of tennis. She always owned a high IQ and hence was mostly able to predict her opponent’s moves. However, the trait wasn’t functional just on the court. She further used that quirk to establish a business empire and an investment firm.

And on a more personal and lighter note, she could also guess the gender of her child way before the medical results arrived. Apparently, she had a theory that proved itself when the news that her unborn child was a girl arrived.

Here’s the argument she used to defend her intuition.

Serena Williams knew she was having a daughter

Williams in August 2017, in an interview with Vogue, had explained how she landed the decision (or hunch) that she and Ohanian will be blessed with a girl. “Alexis thinks we’re having a boy, but I have a strong suspicion that it’s a girl.” She had said.

Thereafter, she explained, “Two weeks after we found out, I played the Australian Open. I told Alexis it has to be a girl because there I was playing in 100-degree weather, and that baby never gave me any trouble. Ride or die. Women are tough that way.”

Serena claimed her 23rd Grand Slam trophy on the hard courts of Australia against her elder sister Venus Williams that season. She, while pregnant, defeated the seven-time Grand Slam champion, Venus, in straight sets of 6-4 6-4.

All three of them are always ready to support each other. When Williams made a comeback this season in England, Ohanian and Olympia traveled alongside her just to cheer her. Then they helped her enter the second phase (post-retirement) of her life, too.

And now that the seven times Wimbledon champion is free from the hectic schedule of tennis; she is centering her focus on Olympia’s life and her growth. Williams recently shared a clip of her and Olympia playing and giving a new twist to the bubblegum-bubblegum riddle.

Speaking of Ohanian, the business mogul shares interests with both his wife and his daughter. While the couple loves Marvel comics, the father and daughter are chefs in their own kitchen. What a glam fam!
