Serena Williams' husband showers his baby daughter with kisses in new photo
Tennis player Serena Williams took to Instagram to share a photo of her husband, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, kissing their daughter, Olympia.
In the post, Alexis appeared wearing grey and white sweatpants, a white shirt, and a black hoodie while sitting on a green bench. One-year-old Olympia was wearing grey and white shoes, white leggings, tutu, shirt, and sweater.
The final touch for the girl’s outfit was her pink bow on her head. One of the most adorable aspects of the picture was that the proud father was kissing his daughter on the cheek.
Olympia seemed to be attracted to another thing in front of her as she was staring front. For the caption, Serena wrote that they were the “two best parts of my day. Everyday.”
As soon as the tennis player uploaded that image, her followers took to the comment section to share their thoughts. One of them was Instagram user @tarahdavis1216, who pointed out that she loved the post and that the girl looked like her father.
ALEXIS ADDRESSING SEXISM IN TENNIS
After the incident that involved Serena and the umpire, Carlos Ramos, during the final match of the US Open wherein Ramos imposed a game penalty to Serena for violating codes, the tennis player said that his decisions were sexist and that a male player wouldn’t have received the sanctions.
The New York times later released a chart revealing that at grand-slam events between 1998 and 2018, 1,517 code violations were given to men, compared to 535 given to women.
Double standard? In the wake of Serena's accusations, our look at Grand Slam data that shows men are penalized at a much higher rate for most tennis offenses than women. There is one big exception, however https://t.co/ESZUBPj4AY— Christopher Clarey (@christophclarey) September 14, 2018
However, Alexis said that the statistics were misleading as the data published showed that there are more penalties for men in total, but it didn’t address the main argument.

The argument is that women are punished more often *per incident* than men are.
These data only show there are more penalties for men *total.*https://t.co/njqgH4Ut8a pic.twitter.com/2Jiqtn0l7I
"E.g. If men were punished 344 times out of 3440 audible obscenities (10% enforcement), but women were punished 140 times out of 700 audible obscenities (20% enforcement) - that would mean women are penalized 2x more often than men for the same violation," explained Alexis.
He added that Christopher Clarey, who made the article, wrote nothing but a “misleading headline with a body of ‘research’ that means literally nothing.”
HE PUT HIS MONEY WHERE HIS MOUTH WAS, LITERALLY
Finally, he said that he donated $10 for every word (714) in the article to Donors Choose classroom projects to make sure the next generation could learn basic statistics.
SERENA’S PIC WITH HER DAUGHTER
Recently, the tennis player uploaded a photo with Olympia sitting inside a sandbox playing with her toys.
For the caption, Serena wrote: “sandbox workouts with Olympia.” The toddler was focused on her toys while the proud mother was staring down at the sand.
