Serena Williams has delighted fans just a couple of weeks out from the Australian Open with a photo training with her daughter Olympia.

Williams is expected to travel to Melbourne soon for the Australian Open where she will enter quarantine, but the mother was able to squeeze in some training time with her three-year-old daughter ahead of the trip.

‘CAN’T GO AHEAD’: Australian Open hit by shock virus news

NEW FLAME: Tennis champ moves on after split with fellow star

The 23-time Grand Slam champ posted a picture of her training at the family tennis court with Olympia swinging a racket right in front of her.

She captioned the photo with some tennis advice: “Turn, back, reach, head, follow through.”

The photo was reminiscent of one last year where Olympia was captured in the same purple outfit as Serena during training.

Fans lost their minds over the photo and pointed out Olympia could be a tennis champion in the making.

Olympia reportedly had her first tennis lesson back in October last year.

Olympia should be travelling with her mother to Australia where Serena will be seeking a 24th Grand Slam title.

Serena Williams’ tough 2020

Serena finished outside the World WTA Top 10 last year, but will be ready to go in the first Grand Slam event of the year.

2020 was a trying year for the American champion, failing to win a grand slam title for the third-consecutive year - the first time that has happened in her career.

Many felt this year would be Serena’s best opportunity to equal or break Margaret Court’s all-time record of 24 majors, but despite the absence of a number of her biggest rivals (Ash Barty opted out of the French and US Opens), Serena remains stuck on 23.
