Maybe it’s all the time I’ve just spent with my 3 year old nephew, but I’m clucky as hell and this video of Alexis Ohanian and Serena Williams’ baby girl watching her Mama and Aunt Venus Williams verse each other on the tennis court at the Mubadala World Tennis Championship (MWTC) is making my ovaries hurt.
I’m going to be honest, I’m not a huge sport-watching fan. If it’s not backyard cricket or my weekly netball game I don’t really want to know about it. Which explains why I had absolutely no idea there was even a tennis comp going on at the moment and had to Google ‘what tennis is happening right now’…where I also did not find the answer and had to beg the info off my workmates. They’re DEFINITELY in Abu Dhabi folks.
But you don’t need a sports-loving heart to melt at this super cute vid on Alexis’s Instagram of baby Olympia clapping for both her mum and auntie during their match last Thursday.
That is some adorably good sportsmanship.
For the record, now that I’m a tennis expert because of Google, Venus edged out her sister to win this round, telling The National “It was a lot of fun. We both went out there and tested our games.”
Apparently the sisters were smiling and chatting during the game, so it just sounds like a fun and adorable family day out all around.
The crowd favourite #WilliamsSisters put on a powerful performance tonight, keeping fans at the edge of their seats! @venuseswilliams takes back with her a win from her first time in #AbuDhabi (4-6, 6-3, 10-8) against @serenawilliams. #MWTC pic.twitter.com/Vfj3gpRwOv
