Like many Americans, tennis great Serena Williams is currently waiting out the coronavirus pandemic at home. Williams is quarantining with her husband, Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian Sr. and their 2-year-old daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., and they are living their best quarantine lives.
During an interview for the recent Yahoo! special “Reset Your Mindset at Work,” Serena Williams spoke about how she and her family have been enjoying their self-isolation so far. Adjusting from the grind of her busy tennis schedule to a home lockdown took some getting used to, but Williams soon fell “in love” with life under lockdown. “In the beginning, it was definitely hard, but once I got over that, I was like, I’m kind of in love with this staying-at-home life,” says Williams. “It’s good to take a break and just really focus on the things that are really important.”
Serena Williams is usually away from home due to tennis touring, which can last for 11 months at a time, so under quarantine, Williams cherishes every bit of time she gets to spend with her adorable daughter. Even though balancing her work and parenting can be challenging, Williams wouldn’t have it any other way.
