Serena Williams’ husband, Alexis Ohanian, brought their 10-month-old daughter, Alexis Olympia, to the tennis court so that she could watch her mother practice.
According to Daily Mail, Williams was practicing for the second week of the Wimbledon when Ohanian brought their tot to the practice session. Ohanian's gesture came following the news that Williams grew frustrated when she missed her baby’s first steps due to her training.
The gorgeous little girl sported a baby pink bow in her hair as she rested on her father’s hip during Williams’ training session.
The 36-year-old athlete took to Twitter to express her frustration over missing Olympia’s first steps. ‘She took her first steps… I was training and missed it. I cried,’ she wrote.
The source informed that this was Williams’ fourth tournament since giving birth last September to Olympia, her first child with husband Ohanian, 37.

Speaking about the tournament itself, Williams told The Telegraph that she was “really happy” with how things were going with her.
“It's my serious second tournament back, so it's going pretty well. I have worked really, really, really hard and it has been a long, arduous road. I always expect to come out and do the best I can do, and that's all I can hope for,” Williams told the online source.
The French Open was her first tournament out of the U.S. since giving birth. She had to pull out ahead of the fourth round with an arm injury, which she sustained while playing singles and doubles in Paris.
Her tight schedule concerning various tournaments is one of the major reasons she gets to spend lesser time with Olympia.
“It's hard. I realized at Roland Garros if the days were long like I was playing singles and doubles there, that was hard because I felt guilty,” the sports star stated.
