2017 has proven to be an exciting, loving and beautiful year for tennis superstar Serena Williams. She gave birth to her daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr in September and then she got married in New Orleans in November to her lover and friend Alexis Ohanian.
She has now entered in her next tennis match after becoming a mother. The 36-year-old has reportedly entered the 2018 Australian Open to compete in the first Grand Slam of the next year. And she’ll be defending her title as she took home the trophy last year WHILE pregnant with baby Alexis. Grand Slam #24 is in the works!
Last night, the tennis star popped up at Eva Longoria’s Global Gift Gala held at the Nobu Eden Roc Hotel in Miami to help raise funds to go towards the hurricane relief efforts. That snapback is in full effect.
Oh and the icing on the cake! Nike has decided to name a building after Serena Williams.

What a year it has been. First a grand slam win followed by a awesome baby… than the most magical wedding. What next? How about a building!!… Nike announced yesterday that one of its new world headquarters buildings will be named after me. It will be the biggest on campus and is scheduled to open in 2019. I am honored and grateful! #TeamNike @nike
