Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., Serena Williams’ daughter and mini-me, sported another fit to match her tennis star mom.
The stylish three-year-old was seen as adorable as ever on Instagram in a personalized miniature version of the iconic one-legged, red and black catsuit that Williams wore at the Australian Open in February. Olympia’s dad, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, took to the little one’s verified Instagram yesterday to share a bunch of cute pics featuring Olympia in the impersonator look, posing on the tennis court in two high updos and matching rubber bands.

Ohanian captioned the photo, “Practice does ….” Williams sounded playfully in the comments, writing, “Awwwww mannnnnn I asked you to save this post until I’m next to it. ‘her by my side in my same outfit. Oophhh I guess I’m going to have to unplug your phone tonight. And you wake up wondering why you don’t have a battery 🤷🏿♀️🤷🏿♀️ LOL. “
Williams’ Australian Open would have been dedicated to the late Olympic athletics star Florence Griffith Joyner, the fastest woman in the world, tragically died of an epileptic seizure in 1998. The track and field champion wore one-legged suits during her races and was a major source of inspiration for Williams in his early years. “I was inspired by Flo-Jo, who was a wonderful track athlete, an amazing athlete when I was growing up,” Williams said, according to ESPN, after her winning first game at the Australian Open. “Looking at her fashion, always changing, her outfits were always amazing.”
She added: “This year we have been thinking about what we can do to continue to raise the Serena williams in the field. The Nike team actually thought of this Flo-Jo inspired design. I was like, ‘Oh, my god, this is so awesome.’ ”
Williams loves to correspond with her daughter on and off the field. Last month, she and Olympia (and Olympia’s doll) posed on Instagram in hot pink swimsuits, also custom-designed by Nike, and earlier matching in another set of similar pink swimwear with the fun labels, “the ladle” and “wild child”.
“Together we are unstoppable,” Williams wrote.
