Serena Williams is crushing it in Wimbledon at the moment, and the athlete shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. And if she keeps up this momentum, there's a good chance that she'll soon get a visit from a famous friend: Meghan Markle. There's a good chance the recently-dubbed Duchess of Sussex will pay the tennis player a visit at one of her upcoming competitions -- that is, if she keeps up this winning streak. That's what Williams believes when she was asked when we should expect to see Markle at an upcoming match. Here's the quote from Serena Williams.
I don't know, we'll see. If I keep winning.
That's the spirit. The quote came from Serena Williams recent press conference on Monday attended by Entertainment Tonight, who noted that Meghan Markle and Williams were recently seen on a polo outing with the most recent inclusion into the British royal monarchy. To be more specific, Williams and her husband, Alexis Ohanian, were at the Audi Polo Challenge in Ascot, England with the former Suits actress. Prince William and Prince Harry, Meghan Markle's new husband, were playing at the event for charity. Williams is recently coming off a major win to Arantxa Rus, which will move her to the second round of the competition. Things are going well for Serena Williams right now, it's safe to say.
Meanwhile, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been married to one another for a little over a month now, with their Royal Wedding ceremony taking place back in May. Things have been considerably quieter between them in the days proceeding the big wedding ceremony, though they did celebrate a honeymoon recently in a Canadian resort, which was initially delayed due to their commitments to their royal titles. It reportedly cost a pretty penny.
Additionally, Serena Williams is a recently married woman herself. Her marriage to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian took place in New Orleans on November 16th. They also went all out on their honeymoon, spending a reported $35,000 per week for their intimate celebration. Serena Williams recently welcomed her first daughter into the world, Alexis Olympia, back in September. This Wimbledon tournament is her first time playing tennis professionally since the arrival of her first child, which makes her most recent professional achievements all the more impressive. Way to go Serena! Here's what she said about spending time away from her daughter during this big tournament.
I spend so much time with her, every single day. We literally do everything. So I really don't like being away from her, but I also think it's healthy, in a way, for me to do what I need to do and be that working mom, and then go back home and be the mom.
