Serena Williams Has Date Night with Alexis Ohanian at 'Game Changers' Premiere after US Open Loss
Two days after her US Open loss, Serena Williams proved she’s very much in the game, stepping out for date night with her husband in an elegant slip dress that is making headlines.
Williams, 37, was pretty tough on herself after losing to 19-year-old Bianca Andreescu on Saturday, but on Monday, the tennis great seemed to let her hair down.
Williams and her tech entrepreneur hubby Alexis Ohanian, were in high spirits as they attended the New York premiere of "The Game Changers" on Monday.
Ohanian shared a photo from their red carpet moment and thanked his "very busy wife" for showing up at the documentary premiere.
A COUPLE THAT SLAYS TOGETHER
Williams pulled off simplicity and elegance in a silver satin slip dress that went all the way to her ankles and featured a V-cut neckline. The renowned athlete also wore minimal jewelry and a pair of yellow pumps to set off the outfit.
Ohanian, on the other hand, looked dapper in a dark-hued suit and black sneakers.
SERENA -- THE DESIGNER
A day after stepping out with her husband, Williams showed up for an event of her own at the New York Fashion Week. USA Today reported that the "Serena" label boss hosted a show for her line, which is created to celebrate "women who turn fear into courage and doubt into confidence."
Williams showcased her collection to a star-studded audience with celebrities like Anna Wintour, Gayle King, Kim Kardashian, and La La Anthony, per Glamour.
When it was time for the 23-time Grand Slam champion to take a final bow, she had the help of a personal – and adorable – sidekick, two-year-old daughter Alexis Olympia.
FASHION & INCLUSION
Speaking to Glamour backstage, Williams raved about her inclusive line that caters to women of all shades, shapes, and sizes.
"It's really important for me to be all-inclusive. I really love the word inclusivity and not exclusivity—I think that's just better. I want everyone to have a chance. I think it's so important for everyone to feel like they can see an outfit and think, ‘Oh, that looks like me and I feel good in it.'"
COMMENTS ON HER LOSS
Williams' outings come mere days after she went in hard on herself following her performance at the US Women’s final. "I love Bianca. I think she’s a great girl," she said of her Canadian opponent. "But I think this is the worst match I’ve played all tournament."
Williams' loss signaled another setback to the widely-speculated goal of equaling Margaret Court’s record of 24 Grand Slam singles titles.
For Williams, however, breaking records is only secondary. "I’m not necessarily chasing a record; I’m just trying to win Grand Slams," she clarified.
