Alexis Ohanian shares an old picture of Serena Williams playing

Earlier, Ohanian posted a picture of his wife, Serena Williams, on his official Twitter account. Interestingly, that picture was from the Rome Masters back in 2015, when Ohanian first met the American tennis legend. In the captionhe wrote, “2015. This was the first photo I took of my now wife; the same day I met her randomly at breakfast & she invited me to see her match in Rome. Please disregard the dated IG filter I put on it… ”

Notably, Ohanian was coincidentally staying at the same hotel as Serena, when the latter was playing the Rome Masters in 2015. One morning, the Reddit co-founder sat next to Serena’s table for breakfast and ended up getting a ticket for her match at the Italian Open.

Speaking about the incident, Serena said, “This guy comes and he just plops down at the table next to us and I’m like, ‘Huh! All these tables and he’s sitting here? ‘”

The next year in December, Ohanian proposed to Serena at the exact same hotel and at the exact same table.
