After Pulling out of Miami Open Due to Knee Injury, Serena Williams Joins Husband Alexis Ohanian on a Superyacht [Photos]

She pulled out of her second event in succession on Saturday night when she scratched from the Miami Open with an injured left knee, revealing she was ‘disappointed’.

And Serena Williams made sure she recovered in style as she joined her husband Alexis Ohanian and 18-month-old daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., on a superyacht tour around Miami Beach, Florida, on Sunday.

The tennis champion, 37, was spotted enjoying her mum duties as she tenderly kissed her toddler child on the cheek.

The latest setback will hardly encourage hopes among her fans that, at 37, she can win a 24th Grand Slam – something that has proved elusive since she returned a year ago after a career hiatus when she gave birth to her daughter.

Williams was due to meet Jo Konta’s conqueror Qiang Wang on Sunday, but is unable to compete at what is traditionally one of her favourite tournaments not far from her Florida base.

It has been a disappointing year for the American great, who in January lost in the Australian Open quarter final to Karolina Pliskova after having a 5-1 lead in the deciding set.

Earlier this month she withdrew midway through her second match with a viral illness.

It means that she has only completed seven official tour singles matches so far this year, although she did play three more at the Hopman Cup at the start of the year.

It is not yet known where her next tournament will be, although playing at the Madrid Open in early May is mandatory.

Serena and her Reddit co-founder husband, Alexis, 35, welcomed their daughter in September 2017, two months before their star-studded New Orleans wedding ceremony in November.

In the past, the sports star has spoke candidly about her harrowing experience to CNN, admitting she ‘almost died’ in childbirth.

‘I almost died after giving birth to my daughter, Olympia. Yet I consider myself fortunate,’ she revealed to the publication.

Serena was experiencing a shortness of breath and scans revealed she had several blood clots in her lungs after she underwent an emergency C-section to deliver her baby girl.

She was given a drip with anti-coagulant drugs, but constant coughing from her pulmonary embolism opened up the scar from the c-section and her abdomen filled with her now-thinned blood.

Doctors saved her life by inserting a filter into a major vein to prevent any more clots from entering her lungs, and she was put on bed rest for the next six weeks.

She added: ‘I am so grateful I had access to such an incredible medical team of doctors and nurses at a hospital with state-of-the-art equipment. They knew exactly how to handle this complicated turn of events.’
