Serena Williams Suggests Dad Trains 6-Year-Old Daughter ‘Because I’m So Nice’

Serena Williams admitted she sees some potential in her 6-year-old daughter, Olympia, to become an athlete, but she’s not sure she can give her the extra push she needs.

Williams recently spoke to the New York Times about her daughters and the possibility of seeing athletic prowess in them — as her father, Richard Williams, did with her and Venus.

“I always look at my dad and wonder, ‘How could you do that?’ Because I’m like, ‘Oh, they’re so cute, I just want them to relax and I don’t want to push them too far,'” she told the outlet.

“But I would be devastated if I wasn’t pushed, because we wouldn’t have this interview and there would never have been a Serena Williams. So I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to have this extra punch.”

She said she doesn’t see it much yet in her 9-month-old Adira, but Olympia is a different story, and she suggested her dad could take the reins to coach her.

“Olympia is such a bright light, and she’s so athletic, to the point where it’s not even humanly possible,” Williams said. “Even Venus, she was like, ‘This kid has more talent than you and I combined,’ and she’s not lying.

“So I can see how my dad could see some potential in us. I’m just trying to find a way to tap into it. I already told my dad, ‘Maybe you should coach her, because I’m so good.'”

Williams said Olympia was also getting smarter and started asking him questions about his tennis career and why it seems like everyone knows his name.

Williams and her husband, Alexis Ohanian, have two children.
