The Ultimate Tennis Showdown is a league created by Serena’s tennis coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, 50, with entrepreneur Alex Popyrin in response to the disruption of tennis due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

Meanwhile, the 23-time Grand Slam champion’s husband Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian Jr, 38, recently praised her for being ‘really good’ at balancing work life and home life.

Serena shares Olympia with Alexis who said his wife is a pro when it comes to ‘shutting off’ her work brain and focusing on their family.

He told CBS This Morning: ‘[I had a] warped view of the path to excellence and the path to greatness being a direct result of just pure work. That is obviously core to it, but one thing that I’m still working on is balancing that with time off, time away, time to reset and recharge.’

He continued, ‘Something Serena is really good at is shutting it off and focusing on family time and personal time.’

Meanwhile, Serena recently said her marriage to Alexis – whom she wed in 2017 – is ‘not bliss’ without work.

Speaking in a video for dating app Bumble, she said: ‘Marriage is not bliss. But it can be if you work at it.’  

The sports star also revealed her number one ‘dealbreaker’ in any relationship is not having ‘loyalty’, and shared some key advice when it comes to dealing with heartbreak.

She added: ‘Heartbreak is a part of life, whether it be a loved one, a boyfriend, or an animal. But time heals all wounds.’

And although Alexis believes his wife has mastered life as a working mother, Serena previously said she finds it tough.

She said: ‘I am not sure who took this picture but working and being a mom is not easy. I am often exhausted, stressed, and then I go play a professional tennis match. We keep going. I am so proud and inspired by the women who do it day in and day out. I’m proud to be this baby’s mama @olympiaohanian. #nofilter #nomakeup #nohairbursh lol #justme (sic)’

And the beauty also said she finds it ‘really kind of painful’ being away from her baby daughter.  

She explained: ‘I actually prefer playing in the day because I get to go home and see my baby. I’ve been missing her the last few nights when I play. In the beginning she would really be upset when I left. And now she’s a little bit better. I think I’m a little more upset. But at the same time, she definitely still takes it a little hard. She’s still super young.’
