Serena Williams's Daughter Shows Off Her Own Tennis Skills (& Even Billie Jean King Is Impressed)

Serena Williams's daughter, Olympia, is following in the footsteps of her legendary mom.

On Instagram, the 23-time Grand Slam Grand Slam winner recently shared a photo of her daughter practicing her swing on the tennis court. Meanwhile, her mom proudly watches along in the background. Williams captioned the post, "Turn, back, reach, head, follow through."

In the photo, the 3-year-old is seen mid-swing with a wide stance, looking almost exactly like her mother as she focuses on the ball. Meanwhile, Olympia sports a stylish black-and-white tennis outfit with white sneakers.

Fans were pretty impressed with Olympia's skills, already dubbing her the "next champion," and not surprisingly, tennis legend Billie Jean King agreed. She commented, "Look out, world! Keep going for it!"

In July, Williams and her daughter had a rare twinning moment on the tennis court, featuring matching purple tennis suits. And in October, Williams revealed in her Instagram Story that Olympia was officially ready to hit the court. She said, "I signed Olympia up for tennis lessons. Don't even start with me because I'm not giving her tennis lessons, I signed her up for some."

She continued, "But the lady has no idea that it's my daughter, so we'll see how that goes," the mom of one said with a smile. "I'm not a pushy mom, but I know how I like techniques, I want to make sure she's good at teaching Olympia some techniques."

Since then, the athlete has been giving fans a few glimpses of the training process, including a snap of Olympia practicing with her racket. She wrote, "The adventures of Serena and Olympia continue."
