Serena Williams insists she won’t be a ‘pushy mum’ ahead of daughter’s first tennis lesson

Serena Williams insisted she wasn’t going to be an overprotective tennis mum after dropping her three-year-old daughter off Olympia off for her first lesson.

And she revealed little Olympia’s new instructor had no idea she’d be teaching the offspring of a 23-time Grand Slam singles winner, arguably the greatest women’s player of all time.

Serena shared the milestone moment with fans in a series of Instagram stories.

Sporting a yellow Nike cap, she said: ‘Guys, I signed Olympia up for tennis lessons.

‘Don’t even start with me because I’m not giving her tennis lessons, I signed her up for some. But the lady has no idea that it’s my daughter so we’ll see how that goes.

I’m not a pushy mom but I know how I like technique so I’ll make sure she’s good at teaching Olympia some techniques.’

The four-time Olympic gold medallist made sure her girl had all the best kit ahead of her first foray onto the court, including a tiny Wilson racket to match her mum’s.

Serena, known for her daring, stellar style, chose an adorable matching ensemble for Olympia’s debut.

The outfit seemed to have Olympia’s seal of approval too. A snap posted by her proud mum shows her dancing on the table, tongue-out, in the long-sleeved shirt and skirt in an abstract black-and-white pattern.

Olympia seemed less keen on her mum’s choice of pre-lesson entertainment, as Serena insisted on running over some pro match film before the lesson.

‘See the open stance there?’ Serena explained to the tot. ‘And look at the speed!’

But it seems Olympia finally got her way and convinced her mum to switch to some cartoons.

‘This is the film she wanted to watch,’ explained Serena. ‘That baby not playing tennis Olympia.’

Hard as it might have been for the fiercely competitive athlete, Serena stuck to her word and didn’t linger after leaving Olympia at her lesson.

Wearing a bright pink tank and a grey mask, she said: ‘So she’s at her tennis lesson but I’m going to leave so I’m not distracting. I know how to leave and be.

‘I’m not like an overprotective mum, no matter what [husband] Alexis [Ohanian] says.’
