Serena Williams and her family, with her husband Alexis Ohanian and her daughter Olympia, all dressed up to attend niece Justus Bobbitt’s wedding to Brandon Salters. Bobbitt is the daughter of Williams’ late sister Yetunde Price who was tragically killed in Compton on September 14, 2003.
Bobbitt and her now husband became engaged in 2020. Serena wore a sky blue dress, while her daughter dressed a pink-purple gown with her own little fascinator. Ohanian wore a gray suit with a pink bow tie and posed with a straw hat in hand.
Serena Williams ended her legendary career last week with a third-round defeat of the 2022 US Open.
Turning pro in October 1995, the American is almost universally recognized like the biggest ever. Serena Williams’ retirement has sparked a myriad of reactions in every corner of the world. In a recent interview, Laura Harvey, manager of the OL Reign women’s soccer team, expressed her point of view on Serena’s farewell.
She told: “An era is over. Many of the athletes who have accompanied us in the last 15-20 years are retiring. Serena has shown us what it takes to win at the highest level. Her dedication and her desire to never give up have been contagious and have inspired millions of sportsmen around the world.
Her latest match perfectly embodied her essence.” Serena, who did not want to push her daughter Olympya to tennis, is seeing her daughter become passionate about the NFL, enrolling her daughter in a local team: for this reason Serena has proposed herself for the role of volunteer assistant coach and will be able to help daughter and all other members.
The US former tennis star has launched his new brand linked to wellness products. She explained: “Recovery has always played an essential role in my performance. And in my professional success. It’s a practice that can benefit anyone with an active lifestyle.”
