Few people don’t know who Serena Williams is, because she’s achieved global recognition as a prolific and multi-awarded professional tennis player. It’s natural that fans would want to know everything there is to know about her, particularly when it comes to her love life.
Over the years, Williams has been romantically linked with a couple of well-known entertainers but it’s her relationship with Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian that had everyone talking. The two have faced some backlash because of their relationship, the kind that might require therapy to keep them going. After all is said and done, theirs is a heartwarming tale that inspires and reflects the essence of true love.
It Didn’t Start With Love At First Sight
Plenty of love stories don’t start with love at first sight and it was the same for Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian. The two met at the Rome Cavalieri hotel in 2015 and Serena’s friends tried to “get rid of him.” Ohanian had taken a seat next to Serena’s table by the pool while there were plenty of other tables available.
Their clever plan was to tell him that the hotel was in need of rat removal services because they had spotted one scurrying around. Alexis didn’t budge telling them that he was from Brooklyn and saw rats all the time. That’s how he has piqued Serena’s interest and got his foot in the door.
