Alexis and his wife have been restraining themselves from publicly speaking about the recent events that made Serena the target of several critics from tennis fans and sports enthusiasts.

Williams started to argue with Ramos after he gave her a penalty for getting coaching from the sidelines. While Williams denied the accusations, her manager Patrick Mouratoglou alter admitted he was trying to coach, but she didn’t see him, so she felt her integrity was being attacked.

She’s been relaxing with her daughter, and she posted two adorable pics cuddling with Olympia after what was, for sure, one of the hardest weeks for the 23-times Grand Slam champion.

Several athletes have been supportive of Serena over social media, while others believe she was throwing a tantrum and called her an “emotional wreck,” fueling the discussions about sexism in the sports industry.

Billie Jean King, the tennis legend that won 12 Grand Slam singles titles, backed Williams with a tweet that sums up what happened at the match. She wrote:

“When a woman is emotional, she's "hysterical," and she's penalized for it. When a man does the same, he's 'outspoken,' and there are no repercussions.”
