Early Life

Williams was born on September 26, 1981 in Saginaw, Michigan, to Richard Williams and Oracene Price, and is the youngest of Price’s five daughters: half-sisters Yetunde, Lyndrea and Isha Price, and full sister Venus.


When the children were young, the family moved to Compton, California, where Williams started playing tennis at the age of three. Her father, Richard, home-schooled Serena and her sister Venus. While he and subsequently her mother, Oracene, have been the official coaches, other mentors who helped her learn the game included Richard Williams in Compton (not to be confused with her father) who would go on to found The Venus and Serena Williams Tennis/Tutorial Academy.


She became the world no. 1 for the first time on July 8, 2002. On the sixth occasion, she held the ranking for 186 consecutive weeks, tying the record set by Steffi Graf for the most consecutive weeks as world no. 1 by a female tennis player. In total, she has been world no. 1 for 319 weeks, which ranks her third in the Open Era among female tennis players. Williams’ accomplishments and success in professional tennis have led some commentators, players, and sports writers to regard her as the greatest female tennis player of all time.


Williams announced her engagement to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian on December 29, 2016. On April 19, 2017, Williams posted a sideways picture of herself on Snapchat focused on her belly. It had the caption “20 weeks,” sparking speculation that Williams is pregnant. Later that evening, her spokesperson confirmed that the couple is expecting. The fact that she was 20 weeks pregnant when announcing her pregnancy, meant that she was pregnant when she won the Australian Open in January.
