Tennis champion, Serena Williams, has revealed that she doesn’t want her baby daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian, Jr. to play tennis when she grows up.

This she disclosed in an interview with Vogue Magazine. Williams and Olympia reportedly appeared on the February cover of Vogue together where Williams revealed how she has no intentions of grooming her daughter to follow in her footsteps on the tennis court.

“I would hate her to have to deal with comparisons or expectations. It’s so much work, and I’ve given up so much. I don’t regret it, but it’s like Sliding Doors: Go through a different door and lead a different life. I’d like her to have a normal life. I didn’t have that” she said.

She went on to say, “I think sometimes women limit themselves. I’m not sure why we think that way, but I know that we’re sometimes taught to not dream as big as men, not to believe we can be a president or a CEO, when in the same household, a male child is told he can be anything he wants. I’m so glad I had a daughter. I want to teach her that there are no limits.”

Poster, what is jr with this baby for? her mother is Serena, and her father is not named Alexis. Even if her mother is called Alexis, the baby would be addressed as "baby Alexis or younger Alexis" because she is a girl. Jr is affixed to names of boys who take the names of their fathers, not their mothers, and not girls.
