Last month, Serena had revealed that she has set an "outrageous" goal for making a comeback at the Australian Open in January, something which will push her Grand Slam total to an all-time record-tying 24 titles.

Serena Williams's daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Junior is already one of the most followed people in the world of social media.

Apart from the obvious connection to her fiance, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, the 36-year-old revealed on her Twitter that the first-born's initials are a strategic reference to Williams' Australian Open win earlier this year.
