Serena Williams Loses Games As Boyfriend Alexis Ohanian Gets Serious
Serena Williams has gotten serious with her new boyfriend Alexis Ohanian and it looks like their relationship might be affecting her career. The world number one is looking to get the grip back on her game before French Open as she seeks balance between the court and her relationship with Alexis Ohanian.
“They’ve been keeping their romance under wraps, but Serena Williams and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian are going strong,” reports Page Six. “We’re told the private tennis star took her techie beau along to a Web video shoot in Florida over the weekend.”

The rumor has it that they started their fling in October. Since then, they have worked hard to keep their dating on the down low as much as possible. Seeing how both Serena and Alexis are both celebrities in their respective fields, it must be crucial for them to not have their relationship all over Twitter or, heaven forbid, Reddit.
It’s a good thing, then, that the only news that has been hitting the newsstands is the fact that the world number one is underperforming right now. She lost to Sveltana Kuznetsova in the fourth round of Miami Open 2016.
The next Grand Slam tournament that Serena Williams faces is the French Open. She has always been partial to clay courts, so it might be that she regains her force in France.
“For someone who is supposed to be the dominant figure in women’s tennis, and who came so close to accomplishing the calendar-year Grand Slam last season, Williams has not hoisted a trophy since last August,” reports ESPN. “With the clay-court surface blunting some of Williams’ power game, this probably isn’t the part of the season she feels most confident playing. Certainly, victory at one of the warm-up tournaments would have the American feeling a little more self-assured before her arrival at Roland Garros, where she will be attempting to level Steffi Graf’s modern-era record of 22 majors.”
That record of 22 majors has been more elusive than ever now that she is ramping up to the level of historical legends. While some say that it is a matter of time that the American surpasses Steffi Graf’s record, it looks like it will take more than blood and sweat for Serena to finally accomplish that deed.
Having just started a relationship with Alexis Ohanian means that she also has to devote a certain amount of time and energy to her new boyfriend. While the world isn’t sure how smoothly this romance is working out, it must have taken some of her concentration from the matches.
But she is trying her best to keep the pressure off of her by indulging in some fun from time to time.
“Serena Williams appears in a video posted online this week giving a step-by-step approach to twerking,” reports New York Daily News. “Employing the patient tone of a fitness instructor, Williams shows you how to successfully emulate Miley Cyrus’ 2013 MTV Video Music Awards performance.”

The fans are sure that her boyfriend Alexis Ohanian appreciates this bit of choreography.
She also posts inspirational pictures so that she can remind herself of the things that she has accomplished so far. The all-time champion also lets herself attend glamorous and fancy red carpet events so that she can see how her hard work paid off at the end of the day.
Will she be bringing her new boyfriend to these events soon? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
