‘I’m very happy,’ said Williams. ‘ She played really well, she made a lot of aces (15). Two years has been a long time but I trained really hard on the clay. I’m taking it a day at a time.’

Serena Williams’Reddit co-founder husband Alexis Ohanian and their daughter, Olympia were among the very special guests that came to support her.
