Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., Serena Williams's daughter and mini-me, wore another fit matching her tennis star mom.
The stylish three-year-old was seen looking as adorable as ever on Instagram in a miniature custom version of the iconic one-legged, red-and-black catsuit Williams wore at the Australian Open in February. Olympia's father, Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian, took to the little one's verified Instagram account yesterday to share a cluster of sweet photos showcasing Olympia in the copycat look, posing on the tennis court in two high buns and matching hair ties.
Ohanian captioned the photo, "Practice makes...." Williams chimed in playfully in the comments, writing, "Awwwww mannnnnn I asked you to save this post until I was next to her side my side in my same outfit 🙄🙄. Oophhh I guess I'll have to pull the plug from your phone tonight. And you wake up wondering why you have no battery 🤷🏿♀️🤷🏿♀️ LOL."
Williams's Australian Open outfit was reportedly dedicated to late Olympic track and field star Florence Griffith Joyner, the fastest woman in the world, who tragically died of an epileptic seizure in 1998. The track champion famously wore one-legged catsuits to her races and served as major inspiration for Williams in her younger years. "I was inspired by Flo-Jo, who was a wonderful track athlete, amazing athlete when I was growing up," Williams said, per ESPN, after her first winning match at the Australian Open. "Watching her fashion, just always changing, her outfits were always amazing."
She added, "This year we thought of what can we do to keep elevating the Serena Williams on the court. The Nike team actually thought of this design of inspiration from Flo-Jo. I was like, 'Oh, my god, this is so brilliant.'"
Williams loves matching with her daughter on and off the court. Last month, she and Olympia (and Olympia's doll) posed on Instagram in hot-pink swimsuits, also custom-designed by Nike, and earlier, matched in another set of similar pink swimsuits with the fun labels, "the shady one" and "wild child."
"Together we're unstoppable," Williams wrote.
