Following the match, Mrs.Alexis Ohanian brought Alexis Olympia on the court. “It feels good. It’s been a long time,” she said. “I’ve been waiting two years for this moment. I think you could see the relief on my face. You have to be your biggest cheerleader, especially if you’re feeling you’re not doing everything right — or even if you are doing everything right but things aren’t working out for you.” 

And what made it even more special was that Serena donated the $43-thousand dollar prize money to Australian bushfire relief.
