Serena Williams has said that she would root for her daughter Olympia to play tennis, but warned that she could face a lot of pressure.
The former World No. 1 appeared on The Daily Show hosted by Trevor Noah and was asked if her daughter would prefer a tennis racket or a computer (in reference to Williams’ husband and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian’s occupation). She responded by saying that her daughter would prefer a computer.
Williams added that Olympia could play a variety of sports apart from tennis.
Williams’ four-year-old daughter Olympia has tried her hand at tennis, practicing with her mother. There’s little doubt that there will be a lot of pressure on her if she tries to become a professional, given her mother and aunt Venus Williams’ records.
In an earlier interview with People, Williams said that her daughter enjoys virtual reality and board games, with her father introducing her to the former.
Williams last appeared on court at Wimbledon in 2021, when she suffered a leg injury in her opening match against Aliaksandra Sasnovich. The American is yet to announce her return to action as she aims to reach full fitness.
