You Know 3-Year-Old Olympia Aced Her Warmup Drills on the Tennis Court With Serena Williams
Serena Williams is offering private tennis lessons — well, only if you're 3 years old and your name is Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. Less than a year after her mom signed her up for tennis lessons, Olympia has picked up an impressive forehand. Of course, it helps that the mother-daughter duo run regular drills with a fun, toddler-friendly twist. "You want to play a fun game?" Serena asked Olympia in a video shared to her Instagram account on Thursday, encouraging her daughter to imagine the tennis balls were snacks like crackers and cupcakes (strawberry, specifically) as she practiced her stroke. "Let's do that again!" Olympia shouted after completing the first drill.
To kick off their warmup, Serena and Olympia also did some jumping and stretches, including a fun game of "Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes." "You are so good at coaching that I might ask you for help for my own kids," Serena's coach Patrick Mouratoglou commented on the video, complimenting her coaching style. After a job well done, Olympia and Serena shared a tennis-racket high five on the court, and we can't wait to see more soon. Check out the pair's sweet warmup routine here.
