“It’s Oracene [Price] all over again!” Serena’s sister, Venus, commented, referring to their mom, who was the sisters’ tennis coach when they were kids.

Speaking to People about teaching her daughter tennis, Serena has said, “Honestly, we started because it’s a socially safe sport, and when COVID happened, it was like, we’re just in the house with a three-year-old, what do we do? There was only one answer, to my dismay.”

Serena has also talked about how much Olympia likes playing piano, telling Jimmy Kimmel last fall: “She likes tennis, but I don’t know. Honestly, she likes playing piano. When she was in my belly, I played a lot of piano music.”

“And she’s teaching me! Like, I’m not even kidding,” she laughed. “I have a baby Mozart, [but] of course every parent thinks they have like, a baby Beethoven or whatever.”
