Serena Williams recently expressed how disappointed she is for having to withdraw from the French Open, but she’s not dwelling much on it while she’s still in Paris. The tennis champion took off for Disneyland in the company of her family to cheer herself up in the happiest place on earth.
Alexis Olympia is just nine-months-old but she already got to visit Disneyland with an excited Serena, her father Alexis Ohanian, and Serena’s mom. The little girl wore her first Minnie Mouse ears sequin headband, and even though she probably won’t remember the trip, we’re sure her parents had a great time at the park.
Serena updated her Instagram account stories to show her followers where she was as she teased the little girl asking “Do you know where we're going lil' mama? We are at Disneyland Paris!”
The family outing came after the 36-years-old tennis champion had to quit to her spot on the French Opening after having troubles with a pec muscle.
“The fact that I physically can't serve at all is a good indication that maybe I should just go back to the drawing board and stay positive and try to get better and not get it to a point where it could be a lot worse,” she said in a press conference held last Monday.
Serena also revealed she will be getting some MRI scans to see what’s wrong with her muscle and that she hopes she can be fine for the upcoming tournaments of the year. Always staying positive, Serena seems to be enjoying the extra time she now has in her hands to spend with her mini-me.
In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar UK, Williams revealed that she definitely wants more kids, another girl, so that Olympia can have someone to play, and then a boy. She said that she loved being pregnant so much that: “If I wasn’t playing tennis, I’d be pregnant right now – sorry, I’m one of those women.”
She also revealed what she’s planning for her daughter’s future:
“Outside of the Mandarin tutor and the French tutor, which I’m really serious about, and of course ballet, I have no dreams for her. I want to let her do whatever she wants to do, as long as it’s positive. Always try to be an addition to society, not a subtraction.”
Despite her injury, Serena looks as happy as she’s been since her daughter was born, and we’re glad she’s staying positive above all because she’s teaching her daughter earlier in life to always smile in front of the adversity.
