Alexis Ohanian, Serena Williams‘ husband, has shared a very sweet message following her 2018 Wimbledon defeat.
Today the 7-time champion was defeated by 30-year-old Angelique Kerber. Kerber defeated Serena 6-3 6-3, making the 23-time Grand Slam winner wait until the US Open to compete for her record-equalling 24 Grand Slam titles.
Alexis took to Instagram after the match to share a sweet message.
Days after our baby girl was born, I kissed my wife goodbye before surgery and neither of us knew if she would be coming back.
We just wanted her to survive—10 months later, she’s in the #Wimbledon final.
@serenawilliams will be holding a trophy again soon—she’s got the greatest one waiting at home for her. Our family knows she’ll win many more trophies, too.
She’s just getting started. And I couldn’t be more proud.
