“Crypto Punk of My Wife”: Serena Williams’ Husband Alexis Ohanian Lives Up to His Promise at Met Gala 2021

American tennis star Serena Williams has been a true ambassador for this elegant sport. The manner in which she carries herself on and off the court is noteworthy. Over the years, she has had her family, comprising of husband Alexis Ohanian and daughter Olympia accompany her.

Yesterday, Serena Williams made an appearance at the Met Gala 2021. The American superstar was accompanied by her husband Alexis Ohanian. She stepped wore a Gucci outfit, which included a silver bodysuit that had red stars on it. She also sported a luxurious cape, which had a color combination of white, pink, red, and black.

However, her husband Alexis Ohanian donned a crypto punk memento on his coat. He had promised his followers that he would do that and he certainly lived up to his word. He even tweeted, Decided to bring a #Cryptopunk of my wife (that I bought for her) to the. WAGMI.”

Serena Williams and her poor 2021 season

Reflecting on Williams’ season, the veteran has not matched her usual standards this season. After making it to the semifinal in Melbourne, she did not feature in any event until the WTA 1000 event in Rome.

During the entire clay season, she performed below par, losing in the fourth round of the French Open too. Soon after came the Wimbledon Championships, in which, she lost in the opening round match. At 3-3 in the first set, she twisted her ankle and as a result, was forced to withdraw from the tournament.

After that, she decided to skip the Olympic Games held in Tokyo. The number of restrictions surrounding the event played a huge role in her making that decision. Most recently, she withdrew from the US Open. We hope to see her back on the tennis courts and return back to winning ways.
